On October 24th, Republican Senator Jeff Flake surprised the nation by announcing he would not seek re-election in 2018. It was not his announcement however that took people by surprise – it was his speech denouncing the president of the United States. Several times throughout his speech, Flake addressed trump directly, stating his behavior had a “chilling effect on a healthy democracy” (Nilsen). Flake continued,
In the final chapter of his book, Price hints at this indecision when he writes, “Perhaps Iowans figured out something before the rest of the country: Mitt Romney would never become president. Maybe that helps explain how Michele Bachmann, Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry and Herman Cain, yes, Herman Cain, all spent time as the front-runner, with Ron Paul never far behind (Kindle Locations 3729-3730).“ There are numerous figures out there that highlight how incumbent candidates have an advantage in political elections, which could explain part of how Obama reclaimed the Presidency in 2012. However I believe there is some merit to Price’s thesis that the Republican Party at the state level here in Iowa, and national level was too indecisive about who they wanted their candidate to be in 2012, and that this indecisiveness may have played a part in losing the election. You can see similar factionalizing today in the Republican Party in regards to Trump and the other candidates. This newest round of indecision could cost them another election. Expanding past the issue of indecision within the Iowa Republican Party, the text also points to the disorganization within the Iowa Republican Party under chairman Matt
supporters and the media that he did not intend to keep. “He stated that he would not
Former Texas Governor Rick Perry has dropped out of the race to be US president. He dropped out because his campaign was struggling in the polls and he failed to make the cut into the main Republican presidential debate. He dropped out last month. Perry also ran in 2012 but dropped out after a series of gaffes. Rick Perry certainly possessed a resume to be a top-tier contender for the Republican nomination.However, he has been quickly eclipsed in the polls by political outsiders like Mr.Trump and former neurosurgeon Ben Carson. Just 4 years ago, in his first bid, Perry had a widespread support and seemed a real threat to Romney. I think what Perry did was actually smart, because if you know you're running behind in the polls then you should
The Boston Herald noted that all three men are in Romney's hands and are possibly seeking his rather important endorsement. Mitt Romney himself has denied that he has any favorites in the race. Bloomberg reports that he has characterized himself as "firecely neutral" about the whole matter. This has fueled rumors that he is being courted by the candidates and in Jeb Bush's case this seems to be a fair assumption. Bush has spent time complimenting Romney, calling him a "senior statesman" in the Republican party. He even said that he wished Romney was
He added that his 2022 presidential bid is serious that’s why he is planning at an early stage.
He believes Miranda rights should not be given to terrorists. This is a great idea because now, the military and government would be able to obtain information about the terrorists which could prevent future attacks. Jindal thinks we should also not apologize when we use military force. According to ontheissues.org, Bobby said “ We live in a dangerous world, and America needs to be strong.” Now this doesn’t mean we need to be brutal and use military force at all times. It just means we should be a country with a great military and one that perservers in a world full of evil.
Marco Rubio announced his ambition to run for 2016 Republican nomination in April, 2015. He explained the reason behind seeking country’s highest office in Miami. He said, "We've reached a moment now, not just in my career, but the history of our country, where I believe that it needs a Republican Party that is new and vibrant, that understands the future, has an agenda for that future." Again a confident Marco Rubio said, “And I feel uniquely qualified to offer that."
In order to move our state forward, I implore my Republican colleagues to denounce Mr. Trump’s hateful rhetoric and unconditionally reject his presidential candidacy.”
"I never lost an election." This phrase was one among many that caught people attention as Tim Kaine was closing what CNN commentators describe as a very powerful speech. It was his acceptance speech as Hillary Clinton picked him as her running mate.
On Wednesday, in less than a ten minutes’ notice, Vice President Joe Biden declared that he will not run in the 2015 presidential election, ending months of confusion and completely changing the Democratic race. With current president Barack Obama and his wife by his side supporting him at the White House Rose Garden, Biden believed that “Unfortunately, were out of time.” Biden also included that he had warned everyone during an interview with the Stephen Colbert’s Show, saying that the death of their son, Beau Biden, could close “his window for a credible White House.”
At the Republican National Convention, George Bush selected Senator Dan Quayle (R-IN) as his running mate. The selection of Quayle as a running mate undoubtedly hurt Bush because many people considered Quayle ill equipped for the job of Vice President. Governor

Duck’s campaign team decided to comment, “We are very pleased that our efforts have resulted in Duck becoming the
When news broke of his decision, Pearson rebuke claims that he would be the next Jonathan Krohn. Guess he spoke too soon because Pearson had finally came out to say his true real endorsement – Bernie Sanders. Citing the Bern is the only candidate that is a courageous trailblazer to tackle every issue such as systematic racism, police brutality, youth unemployment, income inequality and poverty as reason for endorsement. Pearson is in talks with Sanders campaign to involved in his campaign even though two weeks ago he announced he wasn’t planning to work for another campaign. Yet again with another lie.
