Jimmy Carter has joined with much of the Republican establishment in expressing preference for Donald Trump over Ted Cruz because Trump will make deals.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports:

Turning to the “almost completely unpredictable” race for the Republican nomination, Carter said he had a “feeling” that Trump’s chances ultimately would “fade away.

In all the news noise over the Iowa caucuses, a decision by the Illinois Board of Elections passed almost entirely under the radar.

There was much hoopla when two voters filed a challenge to Ted Cruz appearing on the ballot because Cruz allegedly was not a “natural born Citizen” and ineligible. (My...

There is lots of buzz that Marco Rubio is inching up in Iowa.

There also seems to be a loose consensus that Rubio had the better of the debate last night.

So Ted Cruz is turning his attention to Rubio with a negative ad campaign that previously was focused on Trump. The NY...

Ted Cruz is intelligent, articulate, and well-prepared to defend and protect the Constitution as the next president of the United States.  He entered the national spotlight during his contentious 2012 run for the Senate, but it’s worth taking a look at his resume because it highlights long-standing and staunch support of...

Speaking to a crowd in Las Vegas Thursday night, Donald Trump said he’d be part of the establishment if elected; a bit odd considering he’s spent the majority of his campaign portraying himself as the ultimate political outsider.

But standard rules don’t apply this election cycle. Apparently.

The Republican emeritus leadership seems to be breaking for Donald Trump over Ted Cruz as the lesser of two evils.  They reason that Trump is less extreme, less likely to cause collateral damage to Republicans in Congressional and state races, and more electable.

They’re also probably wrong, at least about the electability...

Anyone who a year ago picked Donald Trump and Ted Cruz to be the two leading Republican candidates heading into the Iowa Caucuses either (i) is a liar, or (ii) should invest heavily in the lottery because they are beyond lucky.

Certainly, the powers that be in the Republican Party were not...

Bob Dole, who has endorsed Jeb Bush, has weighed in on the budding Ted Cruz v. Donald Trump contest in the early GOP primaries, and backed Trump in the strongest terms.  According to the New York Times, Dole warned of “cataclysmic,” and “wholesale losses” if Cruz is nominated.

Dole’s logic is viewing...

The exchange between Ted Cruz and Donald Trump on “NY values” was one of the highlights of last night’s debate.
