New York Governor George Pataki runs for President 2016 republican primary candidate rino bipartisan

If it seems like we’re writing at least one “so and so formally announces they’re running for president in 2016″ post each day, that’s probably not far from accurate.

For those of you waiting with baited breath for the candidate who could lock down the pro-abortion, anti-gun vote, your wait is ...

There has been a lot of hand-wringing over Jeb Bush’s seeming lack of readiness for a presidential campaign in the wake of his apparent inability to articulate a coherent response to Megyn Kelly’s Iraq War hypothetical question.

After days of hedging and backpedaling, Jeb finally landed on the “right” answer: “no, knowing...
