    Dr. Kelli Ward, chairwoman of the Arizona Republican Party and prominent ally of former President Donald Trump, is running for reelection as the state’s GOP chair and spoke to Breitbart News about her bid for reelection, casting her political vision for the future of the battleground state and identifying election integrity as a “top priority” among others. Ward announced her intention to run for reelection earlier this month, finalizing her decision after speaking with Trump, whom she said told her that she “needed” to run, as detailed in a January 5 announcement. In an exclusive interview Breitbart News, Ward detailed the significant accomplishments the Arizona GOP has made over the course of her leadership, including the state party’s successes with Trump Victory and the establishment of two “legacy” projects — the election integrity fund and Latino outreach. “Number one, we established an election integrity fund for the Republican Party of Arizona,” she...
    A growing list of Republican lawmakers is calling for Rep. Liz Cheney to step down as chairwoman of the House Republican Conference after announcing she will vote to impeach President Trump. “I don’t think she should be the chair of the Republican conference anymore,” Rep. Andy Biggs told Fox News. “The reality is she’s not representing the conference; she’s not representing the Republican ideals,” he added. Biggs is not alone in calling on the GOP’s third-ranking member of the House to step down, with Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene and Matt Rosendale also calling on her to leave the post. “I’m calling for .@RepLizCheney to step down as Chairwoman of the House Republican Conference,” Greene tweeted Wednesday. “She doesn’t represent Republican voters by supporting this political witch-hunt impeachment of President Trump. She is not connected to the base and is voting for a hurtful lie.” I’m calling for...

    Representative Cheri Bustos won't seek a second term as chairwoman of the Democratic Congressional Committee after Democrats lost seats in the 2020 election, CBS News has learned. House Republicans substantially outperformed the DCCC's expectations, and at least seven Democratic incumbents lost their reelection races, significantly shrinking Democrats' majority in the House. Many Democrats were surprised by the number of defeats they suffered — moderates like New York Representative Max Rose were casualties of this election. House Democrats expressed their displeasure with Tuesday's outcome in a call last week, with moderate Democratic Representative Abigail Spanberger arguing that the "defund the police" movement had threatened her own reelection. Her colleague, Democratic Representative Cedric Richmond, echoed that sentiment Sunday on "Face the Nation."  And House Democratic Whip Jim Clyburn, of South Carolina, told CBSN Monday, "'Defund the police' is killing our party, and we've got to stop it."

    President Trump’s supporters are pointing to a small Michigan county as evidence that vote-counting software used in the state may undercut Trump’s number of votes — as the Trump campaign fends off the appearance of inevitable defeat. Republicans point out that in northern Antrim County, thousands of votes were counted in error for Biden, and for Democratic Sen. Gary Peters instead of GOP candidate John James. Biden is ahead by 146,123 votes in Michigan with 98 percent of ballots counted, and the Associated Press and major news networks declared him the winner. Michigan GOP Chairwoman Laura Cox said at a Friday press conference that “in Antrim County, ballots were counted for Democrats that were meant for Republicans, causing a 6,000 vote swing against our candidates. The county clerk came forward and said, ‘tabulating software glitched and caused a miscalculation of the votes.'” JUSTICE ALITO: MAIL-IN BALLOTS RECEIVED AFTER ELECTION DAY...
    The Republican National Committee (RNC) and President Donald Trump’s campaign are opposed to the idea of the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) altering the rules for the remaining 2020 presidential debates, which they think would assist Democratic nominee Joe Biden, The Hill reported. RNC Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel appeared on Fox News Thursday morning to address her concerns about possible changes to established debate rules, according to The Hill. She alluded in the appearance to the possibility that the CPD might change the debate rules to assist Biden, saying that he was allowed not to answer tough questions that came up in Tuesday’s debate. “I hope the Committee on Presidential Debates does not change the rules to once again protect Joe Biden from answering to the American people,” McDaniel said. McDaniel has also said she would like candidates to be required to answer questions, per the same report. Trump campaign...
    At Tuesday night’s presidential debate in Cleveland, President Trump proved himself once again to be the fighter the American people elected in 2016 and the leader we need fighting for us in the next four years. Throughout the course of the more than 90-minute debate, President Trump was in control, in command and made a compelling case for his reelection by showing he is willing to fight for the policies that work for and uplift all Americans. He is fighting for your vote as he crisscrosses the country to meet with hardworking Americans. And on Tuesday night he fought to finally get former Vice President Joe Biden to answer the questions he has been hiding from. DOUG SCHOEN: FIRST PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE -- HERE'S WHO WON ON STYLE AND SUBSTANCE For the first time, Biden was forced to face real questions about the radical, left-wing agenda he and Sen. Kamala Harris,...

    New York Democratic Rep. Max Rose and North Carolina Republican Rep. Virginia Foxx clashed on the House floor when he broke House rules and directly attacked her and GOP colleagues rather than address the presiding officer. During floor debate over an amendment related to an infrastructure bill Wednesday, Rose, 33, criticized the proposal. "I’m dumbfounded. You’re aware that this conversation is in public, so I won’t put words in your mouth, but I will use your own words. You say today that you don’t want to consolidate wealth amongst the few," he said. “What do you think your tax scam did?” he continued, referencing the Republican-backed tax cut legislation from 2017. “This is about workers. You say you’re worried about deficit spending. Hallelujah! You weren’t worried about deficit spending when it came to endless wars. You weren’t worried about deficit spending when it came to a tax scam." “This...
