Get excited, because voters are casting ballots in six states holding high-stakes primaries. It´s the busiest primary day of the year so far -- and the most consequential. From tea party vs. establishment infighting in the West to a Democratic sprint to the left in the Northeast, there´s a lot going on. But fear not! Here´s where we come in. Below we give you the six most important things to watch: 1. Who will make the Republican runoff for U.S. Senate in Georgia? In the wildly unpredictable and increasingly nasty Georgia Senate race, there´s only been one certainty the

I voted today in Georgia´s primary. In the demoncrap primary. That way I get to vote against the people I hate twice. Nag Nunn, homely daughter of former Senator Sam Nunn, has lots of Jane Fonda money and is flooding the airwaves with commercials informing of us of such earth shaking events that her grandmother liked her. If she is elected it will be the first time she´s ever had a job. Also enjoy voting against my congress critter, Mr Potato Head, Hank Island Tipping Johnson the dumbest member of the entire House of Reps. Too bad no one was running against Baby Malise Jimmy Carter´s grandson. In November I get to vote against them again.

# 1 I understand the logic but do not agree with it. I voted for Karen Handel, as I will not trust anyone endorsed by the Chamber (Kingston), and Perdue is an elitist snob who thinks we are stupid if we support someone else.

I voted against Bill Shuster in Pa. today. A young man who is a "Legacy". He has been too willing to vote with the Establishment Republicans and their agenda. Shook my head every time I heard his "I am a true Conservative" ads.

Following the "Throw Them All Out" strategy.

The single-engine plane took off from Westchester County Airport just after 8 a.m. Friday and narrowly missed a house west of the airfield before hitting some trees, officials said. Richard Rockefeller, of Falmouth, Maine, was the only person on board the Portland, Maine-registered aircraft. The 65-year-old was a doctor and father of two, family spokesman Fraser Seitel said. He had recently been working on a way to treat post-traumatic stress disorder in wounded war veterans, Seitel said. "It´s a terrible tragedy," Seitel said. "Richard was a wonderful cherished son, brother, father and grandfather." Rockefeller was a nephew of former Vice President Nelson A. Rockefeller,

Alison Spann was just 9 when she learned her father, a U.S. Marine-turned CIA operative, had become the first American killed in the war in Afghanistan. Thirteen years later, she found out her country had freed the Taliban leader behind his death. In the time between, Spann has cherished the memory of her father, Johnny Micheal “Mike” Spann, who was killed during a Nov. 25, 2001 prisoner uprising at a northern Afghanistan compound where he was interrogating Taliban fighters. The 32-year-old was buried at Arlington National Cemetery in a ceremony in which he was lauded by then-CIA Director George Tenet for

Rep. Raul Labrador, a fiery conservative lawmaker from Idaho, will challenge House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy in next Thursday´s special election to replace Eric Cantor as majority leader, according to Republican sources. "I want a House Leadership team that reflects the best of our conference," Labrador said in a statement provided to National Journal. He later added: "I am running for Majority Leader because I want to help create a vision of growth and opportunity for everyone and start getting to work for the American people." A sophomore representative from a heavily Republican district, Labrador´s election would dramatically alter the dynamic atop

Obama’s Odds With
Congress: Bad to Worse

WASHINGTON — One day in April, President Obama called Representative Eric Cantor, the House majority leader, to wish him a happy Passover. However the call started, it went downhill from there. By day’s end, both sides were arguing about what was said and taking shots at the other for not getting along. The relationship was in fact prickly from the start. Mr. Obama considered the Republican leader a partisan obstructionist and his main bête noire in the House, while Mr. Cantor viewed the president as an aloof liberal intent on shoving his agenda down the throat of Congress.

U.S. Aircraft Could Strike Iraq Tomorrow

The Iraqi government wants U.S. air power to help stop the terror groups taking over their cities. It wouldn’t take long to deliver air support, if Obama gives the green light. President Obama has so far turned down Iraqi prime minister Nouri al-Maliki’s request for U.S. air strikes against the Islamic extremists taking over his country. But if Obama changes his mind, U.S. jets could be flying over Iraq in less than a day. U.S. air bases, housing dozens of American fighters and bombers, are well within striking distance of Iraq. High-flying spy drones like the Global Hawk can just as easily

In Extremists´ Iraq Rise,

First Falluja, then Mosul, and now the oil-refinery town of Bayji. The rapid advance of Al Qaeda-inspired militants across the Sunni heartland of northern and western Iraq has been stunning and relentless—and utterly predictable. Here’s a forecast: the bad news is just beginning. The capture of Mosul, Iraq’s second-largest city, by Sunni extremists on Tuesday is the most dramatic example of the resurgence of the country’s sectarian war, which began almost immediately after the withdrawal of the last American forces in December, 2011. The fighters who took Mosul are attached to an Al Qaeda spawn called the Islamic State of

The FBI “most wanted” mugshot shows a tough, swarthy figure, his hair in a jailbird crew-cut. The $10 million price on his head, meanwhile, suggests that whoever released him from US custody four years ago may now be regretting it. Taken during his years as a detainee at the US-run Camp Bucca in southern Iraq, this is the only known photograph of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the new leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq and Syria. But while he may lack the photogenic qualities of his hero, Osama bin Laden, he is fast becoming the new poster-boy for the global jihadist movement. Well-organised and

Iraq, Another Grim Point for Romney

At the Washington Post, David Ignatius recalls a 2012 debate exchange between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, during which the two covered al-Qaeda and Iraq: Romney tried to shake Obama’s optimistic narrative about al-Qaeda. “It’s really not on the run. It’s certainly not hiding. This is a group that is now involved in 10 or 20 countries, and it presents an enormous threat to our friends, to the world, to America long term, and we must have a comprehensive strategy to help reject this kind of extremism.” […] Obama scored points later in that debate when he dismissed Romney’s concerns

As the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria — the group that’s too extreme for Al Qaeda — marches toward Baghdad to expand the Taliban-style state it is imposing in parts of Iraq and Syria, President Obama said the U.S. has “a lot of concern about it.” What does that mean? “Iraq’s going to need more help. It’s going to need more help from us, and it’s going to need more help from the international community.” What does that mean? Only that the commander-in-chief’s team is working “around the clock” on a plan. Just as they’ve done as jihadists and Syrian dictator Bashar Assad

On this blog earlier today, Molly Wharton noted that it was Bush 41’s birthday. Carl Cannon has a note on the man too. He talks of Bush’s graduation from prep school: With the assistance of Bush’s father, a future U.S. senator, Andover secured the services of Secretary of War Henry L. Stimson as its 1942 commencement speaker. One of his tasks, Stimson decided, was advising the 213 all-male members of the graduating class that they not rush off to war. Go to college first, he advised. Your country will still need you in three or four years — as officers. But Poppy

With the government’s latest monthly employment report, the American job market has entered a bewildering good news/bad news phase. The good news is that May’s increase of 217,000 payroll jobs finally puts total employment above its pre-recession peak. There are 8.8 million more jobs than at the low point. Unemployment has dropped from 10 percent to 6.3 percent. Chief White House economist Jason Furman points out that monthly job gains have averaged nearly 200,000 in the past year and are trending up. And the bad news? There’s plenty of that too. Economist Gary Burtless of the Brookings Institution notes that getting

The Islamic State of Iraq and greater Syria (ISIS) is shredding Iraq. After seizing the northern city of Mosul on Monday, on Tuesday ISIS stormed down Iraq’s route 1 highway to take Tikrit. This victory has left them emboldened and only 110 miles from Baghdad. [Snip] What´s happening in Iraq and Syria today is the nightmare that drove George W Bush to gamble everything on his January 2007 surge. He knew that Iraq’s collapse might enable Al-Qaeda in Iraq to rip the Middle East apart. And today Al-Qaeda in Iraq’s successor--ISIS--have never been closer to their dream.

BOSTON — Once fearing he would be viewed as "a loser for life" if he failed to win the presidency, Mitt Romney is trying to re-emerge as a force in Republican politics. Romney has quietly sought kingmaker status in the GOP´s fight for the Senate majority this fall and its quest to retake the White House in 2016. The effort at revival is fueling whispers about a third presidential run. But those closest to Romney suggest he´s more interested in shaping party politics by lending his name and record-breaking fundraising machine to what he considers the next generation of electable conservatives.

Due to a supposed computer crash, the agency only has Lerner emails to and from other IRS employees during this time frame. The IRS claims it cannot produce emails written only to or from Lerner and outside agencies or groups, such as the White House, Treasury, Department of Justice, FEC, or Democrat offices.

They’re barely old enough to vote, but graduating seniors at a Massachusetts high school were encouraged Wednesday by President Obama to boot Republicans from office and help the administration enact more of its agenda. Speaking at the commencement service at Worcester Technical High School in Worcester, Mass., the president slowly transitioned from delivering a pep talk to leading a political pep rally. After praising the school’s focus on career-centered education and encouraging graduates to give back to their communities, Mr. Obama addressed the rising cost of higher education, blasting Senate Republicans for stalling a Democrat-backed bill that would allow borrowers

Chelsea Clinton earned an annual salary of $600,000 at NBC News before switching to a month-to-month contract earlier this year, sources with knowledge of the agreement told POLITICO. Clinton, who joined NBC News as a “special correspondent” in November 2011, was up for renewal or non-renewal this year. Instead, the sources said, the network decided to keep her on the payroll on a month-to-month basis so that the two parties could sever ties if Clinton’s mother, Hillary, runs for president. Kamyl Bazbaz, a spokesperson for the 34-year-old Clinton, referred POLITICO to NBC News, which declined to discuss Clinton’s contract. “We don’t comment

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton dismissed Matt Drudge and Karl Rove as “gamers” trying to plant false information in people’s heads. In an interview on National Public Radio, host Terry Gross brought up Drudge’s question about whether Hillary was leaning on a walker on her People magazine cover. She also referred to Rove’s questions about her health. “They are trying constantly to, you know, raise false canards, you know, plant, you know, false information, and that´s what they do,” Clinton replied, accusing both Rove and Drudge for not wanting to debate the "real issues." “They want people to get
