Rand Paul

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) had some strong words for fellow senator Rand Paul (R-KY) over his libertarian take on the end of the Cuban trade embargo.

So strong, in fact, that Paul decided to take the fight to the internet.

During his Thursday night appearance on “The Kelly File,” Rubio had...

Democrats speak out of both sides of their mouths when it comes to campaign finance laws.

They say they want big money out of American politics but they’ll stop at nothing to raise big money to install Hillary Clinton as America’s next president.

Some progressives, however, are jockeying for early bids to lead Hillary Clinton’s 2016 Presidential campaign, and are using fellow...

Texas Democrats weren’t happy when Governor Rick Perry headed overseas in spite of the first diagnosed cases of Ebola in the U.S. appearing in Texas.

While this might have served as a valuable distraction from Wendy Davis’s falling poll numbers, Perry’s decision to maintain his international schedule is shaping up to put...
