2018 Elections

The GOP Establishment Wants To Burn Down The Village To Save It...For Itself

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

All this makes it hard to come to any conclusion but that the GOP establishment thinks that the only way to defeat the virus of conservatism is to set fire to the party and hope that a few elections from now their Boehner-based, crony trough-feeding paradigm will rise again from the ashes like a K Street phoenix. It’s as if they want to get wiped out in 2018, and that’s the one objective they actually seem capable of achieving.

The Dems Are Running in Place

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Deeply invested in over-interpreting Tuesday’s results, the media seeks not to cover a 2018 “wave” but to create one by demoralizing Republicans. While the stupid party is fully capable of falling for this self-fulfilling coverage and cannibalizing its own candidates, that still won’t save the Dems, for whom much of the country remains too deplorable to recapture.

GOP Nice Guys Will Finish Last In 2018

Republicans running in 2018 should expect the same kind of anti-Trump ads and attacks from Democrat-affiliated race-baiters that Ed Gillespie was subjected to, so the time to start thinking about how to get ahead of them is now.

Viguerie says Gillespie win in Va. would derail Dems' anti-Trump campaign

Chad Groening, OneNewsNow.com

"The Democrats are saying that they want the 2018 elections to be an impeachment election,” Richard Viguerie said. “They want Democrats to turn out to undo the 2016 election – people who want to run Donald Trump out of town. They say, ‘We need to win the House and Senate, and then we can start impeaching the president.’” Viguerie continued. “And if Gillespie were to win – which I think he will right now – it will take a lot of wind out of the sails of Democrats."

Kelli Ward Takes Commanding Lead In AZ GOP Primary

Even with Dr. Kelli Ward leading the GOP field and likely Democratic rival Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, the Senate Leadership Fund, which is run by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s allies, has said it will do everything it can to ensure Ward is not the next senator from Arizona.

Poll: Senate Democrats Should Be Very Worried About The 2018 Elections

Henry Rodgers, Daily Caller

Only three of the ten Democratic Senators up for re-election in 2018 are above a 50 percent approval rate in states that favored President Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election, according to a new poll released Wednesday. Sens. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, and Jon Tester of Montana are the only three with above a  50 percent approval rating, which is not a good sign for the future of the Democratic party, a Morning Consult poll revealed.

Lessons From My Book TAKEOVER: Be A Third Force, Not A Third Party

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
The policy of acting as a separate force within the Republican Party worked well to nominate Judge Roy Moore – even though it meant defying President Trump’s call to support establishment Senator Strange.

FedUp PAC Poll: Conservatives See 2018 Elections Moving Senate to the Right

Almost 97% of those responding to the poll predict that “Trump supporters will overcome the establishment to win many Senate seats in 2018,” while less than 2% say that McConnell will be able to keep the Senate under his control after the elections.

Congress Suffers From Senility Of Purpose And Principles

The 115th Congress is among the oldest in history; 18 of the 33 Senators running for reelection in 2018 will be 65 or older, but we think Congress is failing not because it suffers ill effects from aging, but because it suffers from senility of purpose and principles.

Conservative Outsider Senate Candidates Breaking Fundraising Records

While fundraising support for the Republican establishment is drying-up due to the failure of Capitol Hill’s Republican leaders to produce on their campaign promises, two of the most promising Republican outsiders, Indiana’s Mike Braun and Wisconsin’s Leah Vukmir, are reporting record-breaking support.

Fed Up Donors Tell GOP Senate Leaders Pass Bills Or Resign

“I think major donors are tired of writing checks to a do-nothing Congress,” Roy Bailey, an influential, Dallas-based GOP donor told POLITICO, and he's not the only one who has closed his wallet to the Republican establishment.

VP Pence’s Chief Of Staff Nick Ayers Is Our New Hero

Vice President Pence's Chief of Staff Nick Ayers told a group of major donors to the RNC they should call members of Congress and tell them if they don't pass Trump's agenda "we’re recruiting opponents, we’re maxing out to their campaigns, and we’re funding super PACs to defeat all of you.”

Aja Smith Takes On Child Predator Loving Democrat Congressman Takano

Sgt. Aja Smith is doing what few other Republican candidates seem willing to do these days -- go after their Democratic opponents on a values issue, and more importantly, to call a pervert a pervert when they see one.

Pass GOP tax cuts by Thanksgiving or get ready for Speaker Pelosi

Newt Gingrich and Brad Anderson, USA Today

Tax cuts by November beat comprehensive reform next spring because changes will take time to take effect and for voters to feel the impact. A Republican majority can always come back to tax reform in 2019. Serious tax cuts will bring Americans more — and better — job opportunities, with higher take-home pay. That’s why we think this is the key to keeping the Republican majority in 2018.

Viguerie thinks Dems' takeover is scary, but unlikely

Chad Groening, OneNewsNow.com

Conservative leader Richard Viguerie offers his assessment of the liberal assault on President Trump, "What the Democrats are really up to, quite frankly, is they're trying everything they can to think about how they overturn the election results," he says. "You know they're very angry people and they're doing whatever they can to reverse the election results."

Democrats Should Fear the 2018 Midterms

Eddie Zipperer, Lifezette

Obama was the only thing about the Democratic Party that was working. The Democrats without Obama are like a furry, pink, drum-beating bunny without a battery. They’re like pizza without cheese. They’re like Katy Perry without auto-tune. And the party elites are too arrogant to fix their problems, which are getting worse each day we inch closer to Nov. 2018.

Democratic Dreams of Retaking Congress are a Fantasy

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Two-thirds of the 435 districts are effectively off the table, and only 50 or so seats are regarded by both parties as competitive. Sad, but true, and it takes something really, really yuuuuge to upset that arithmetic, and only inside the media bubble is Donald Trump likely to be that yuuuuge. His numbers are bad, but would have to get considerably badder to be yuuuge enough be catastrophic.

List Of House Republicans In Search Of A Primary Opponent

At this pivotal moment in U.S. history, when our leaders ought to be standing stronger and fighting harder than ever for us - they've chosen to wave a white flag in the face of government overreach and overspending. The only thing that gets their attention is a primary! Every one of them is guilty until proven innocent! Primary Them! Phyllis Schlafly, December 2015.

The Top Ten Most Popular Governors in the U.S. Are All Republicans

Tyler O'Neil, PJ Media

If all the feasible unpopular governors lose to the opposing party next year, Democrats would win six seats but lose four, for a net gain of two. If Democrats hold on to Virginia and take New Jersey, that takes them up to three, and if Rauner fails to hold his own in Illinois, that would be four. Right now, Republicans hold 33 governorships to the Democrats' 16. If the Morning Consult poll is accurate and the Democrats pick up this maximum suggestion, they would have 20 governorships, and Republicans would still hold 29.
