It seems extremely likely that the GOP will regain control […]
Republicans are going back to their ’90s playbook as Election Day approaches, planning to unveil a new “Contract With America.” A GOP spokesman told The Hill that House and Senate Republicans will introduce the new compact on Thursday in Virginia. The document will showcase the GOP’s agenda should the party be restored to power on Capitol Hill. GOP leaders have already hinted at some of the ideas that could be […]
In an environment where Republicans seem to be favored over Democrats nationally, the same appears to hold in South Carolina, Republican Gubernatorial candidate Nikki Haley has gained over Democrat Vincent Sheheen for 49 to 35 percent in the previous poll to 52 to 36 percent in the latest poll performed by Rasmussen Reports.
