The big surprise in the New Hampshire GOP race was Gov. John Kasich coming in second place. Sen. Ted Cruz was expected to fill that spot but came in third with 11.7%, followed by Gov. Jeb Bush with 11%. Sen. Marco Rubio, the rising GOP star who surprised critics last week in Iowa, ended up in fifth place with 10.5%, just ahead of Gov. Chris Christie with 7.4%. But, as predicted, Donald Trump was the…
GOP candidate Ted Cruz beat out his closest rival Donald Trump by 3 points in Iowa on Monday. On the Democratic side, the race was murkier. Hillary Clinton won by just a handful of votes over Bernie Sanders. Meanwhile Sanders is hoping to turn his Iowa momentum into a New Hampshire victory next week. “New Hampshire is a ‘must win’ state for Sanders and Trump,” said NBC News political director Chuck Todd. Results in both…

SOTU: Obama Defends Record, Calls for Unity

Written by Thursday, January 14, 2016
With a year left in his term, President Barack Obama spoke to the nation Tuesday night in his last State of the Union address. More somber than the Obama of 2008, and significantly grayer-haired, the president maintained his signature hope and optimism theme throughout, drawing a clear distinction between himself and Republican critics: “All the talk of America’s economic decline is political hot air,” he said. “So is all the rhetoric you hear about our…

Trump Endorsement by Black Preachers Implodes

Written by Monday, December 28, 2015
Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump recently had to walk back an announcement that he would receive endorsements from about 100 prominent black preachers. The intent of the meeting was quickly downgraded from an endorsement event to a meet-and-greet after pastors complained they never offered their support. Some said they never would. Last week, Trump called a press conference where endorsements were expected to be announced. However, those invited wrote an open letter on Ebony.com saying…

Dems Debate More About Policy than Attacks

Written by Thursday, October 22, 2015
With only 5 candidates onstage—as opposed to more than a dozen for Republicans—Democrats appearing in Tuesday’s presidential debate had ample room and time to discuss policy. As predicted, frontrunners Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders got the lion’s share of attention. Policy, Not Punches. Joining Clinton and Sanders on stage in Las Vegas was a trio of low-polling candidates looking for a breakthrough moment: former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley; Jim Webb, a former Navy secretary and…

Another Government Shutdown Averted

Written by Thursday, October 01, 2015
Washington loves drama. Once again, and just seven hours before federal agencies ran out of money, the House of Representatives voted on Wednesday to pass a bill funding the federal government through Dec. 11. The measure, which comes hours after the Senate passed a spending bill of its own, will now go to President Barack Obama's desk and avert a government shutdown. The bill was approved 277 to 151, with House Democrats providing most of…
As Round 2 of the Republican Presidential Debate gets underway, and just in time for Hispanic Heritage Month, immigration reform is again being put on the political table. Hispanics are still on pace to see the largest population increase among non-white ethnic groups in the country by 2050, making undocumented immigrants an issue that cannot be ignored. One hundred women from around the country began an eight-day walk Tuesday from the York County Prison to…

6 Years and Still Fighting

Written by Monday, January 26, 2015
White House Correspondent Chuck Todd got it right when he described the mood of President Barack Obama’s State of the Union (SOTU) Address Tuesday night: “It did not feel like your 6-year State Of The Union speech, where you’re sort of past the campaign, where you’re no longer framing larger party arguments but you’re actually trying to get a few things done before you get out of office. To me, this was the most surprising…
Mayor James Butts was all smiles, all night on Tuesday, as he made the rounds at his victory watch party on Florence Ave. and Market Street. He shook hands and posed for photographs, but was seriously focused on the numbers. It came as no surprise that the incumbent Mayor of Inglewood would win another term. To Butts, the question was, “by how much?” According to the Inglewood City Clerk’s Office, Butts won more than 83…
