A new survey by independent polling firm Morning Consult shows Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell with a commanding lead in his bid for a seventh term in Kentucky, leading 53% to 36% over his Democratic challenger Amy McGrath. About 700 likely voters in Kentucky were surveyed online from July 24 to Aug. 2 by Morning Consult, whose results have a margin of error of +/- 3.5%. The race between McConnell and McGrath is expected to be one of the most expensive U.S. Senate races in the country this year, as both campaigns had over $16 million in cash on hand at

For what it's worth - Dems are counting on capturing Cocaine Mitch's seat to gain a majority in the Senate.

I would say Ditch Mitch but who's worse? A left-wing progressive deep state rino or a progressive deep state democrat?

McConnell is deep state swamp but he's fair in his dealings and has President Trump's back. He's done his duty on judges and knotting up the disloyal opposition. He leaves when he's ready. He's alot younger than I thought. 78. LOL.

I grieve for the voters of Kentucky. Bamboolzed by a Democrat "play moderate" on election day, go far left the next day last year for Governor. Now they have the choice between Turtle McConnell and a rabid leftist. Cripes, it's between the devil you know (Mitch) or the She Devil you know (Mc Grath). I'll stick with Mitch, but I'd have to hold my nose in the voting booth.

He should have been primaried. I would probably leave the US Senate box blank on election day and let the chips fall where they may. Barnacles like Mitch hang on because we support them.

Good. As for Colorado, I hope that Cory Gardner can salvage a win against a very corrupt and former governor John Hickenlooper. But, if Gardner wants any support from Trump, Gardner had better crawl to the Oval Office on his hands and knees and plead for forgiveness for hanging the President out to dry when the dims launched their Spygate coverup and Gardner's early support for Obiecare.

If a guy who votes in line with Pres. Trump's agenda 94% of the time isn't good enough, you might as well give up. Even Lisa Murkowski and Mike Lee side with Trump more often than Kentucky's other senator, Rand Paul, who does so only 69% of the time. 69 used to be the cutoff for a failing grade in Kentucky.

We must stop demanding perfect candidates and be grateful for those who have largely stood tall over the last three years. Without Mitch we'd not have approved 200 quality federal judges. Give Trump an intact Congress to continue the job he started.

I doubt there is much difference. Both probably hate Trump and are more interested in personal power than in the country. I'm probably going to vote against my state rino senator. No support for the president and just gives generic platitudes. Not much difference between that and a democrat.

WASHINGTON – Over 100 Black women leaders and activists slammed comments made of Black women being considered to be Joe Biden's running mate as racist and sexist in an open letter published Wednesday.

Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer, a Democrat, signed an executive directive on Wednesday ordering state employees to undergo “implicit bias training.” Executive directives allow the Michigan governor to establish procedures or basic policy for employees of the state’s executive branch. According to the directive, current state employees will be required to undergo “implicit bias training” by the end of this year, while new employees must complete the training as part of the hiring process. While various bias training initiatives have been implemented by government offices in recent months, some research shows that the impact of these initiatives is negligible. Whitmer’s directive

Black Lives Matter organizer Cori Bush defeated Rep. William Lacy Clay in Missouri’s Democratic primary Tuesday night, halting a St. Louis political dynasty. Jason Rosenbaum, a political correspondent for St. Louis Public Radio, called Bush’s victory “one of the most significant moments in the history of St. Louis politics. It is enormous.” Clay has served in the House of Representatives since 2001, succeeding his father, who had held the seat since 1969. Bush, 44, had challenged Clay, 64, in 2018 but lost by 20 points.

Beirut’s residents are in shock and mourning after an enormous explosion at the city’s port ripped through the Lebanese capital, killing at least 100 and injuring more than 4,000, according to the emergency services. Hospitals are overwhelmed, with some too damaged by the blast to operate. The explosion, which blew out windows and destroyed property for miles around, has been initially blamed on 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate stored in an unsecured warehouse at Beirut’s cargo port. But the government subsequently announced an investigation to determine within five days the exact cause of the explosion and “who was responsible.”

Joe Biden has delayed naming his vice presidential pick by two weeks amid worries the process has become a mess that has pitted women against woman. Biden said last week he would announce his running mate the first week of August but that appears unlikely to happen this week as he hasn't narrowed down his pick amid pressure to name a black woman. But now that's been moved back by two weeks, The Washington Post reported, amid worries from Biden supporters that the process has become 'messier than it should be,' pitting women - and especially black women - against one another.

As California grapples with a deluge of requests for unemployment benefits amid the COVID-19 pandemic, some state workers processing claims say they are buckling under pressure, hampered by outdated technology, bureaucratic red tape and a shortage of trained, experienced staff. The state Employment Development Department is so overwhelmed that Gov. Gavin Newsom acknowledged last week that nearly 1 million unpaid claims may be eligible for payment but require more information, with estimates that the backlog won't be eliminated until the end of September. Inside the EDD, full-time employees and temporary hires say they are working long hours, including weekends, but

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan and officials in the state are at odds over a county's decision to mandate private schools to begin virtual-only learning this fall amid the coronavirus pandemic. Health officials in Montgomery County last week made the decision to keep private and parochial schools closed through October for in-person learning, arguing that having students in the classroom would present a danger to pupils and teachers as the state grapples with COVID-19. But Hogan blasted the move over the weekend, saying: "I strongly disagree with Montgomery County's decision to mandate the closure of private and parochial schools." "As long

Thousands of New York City residents fled Manhattan and Brooklyn earlier this year when the city was the COVID-19 epicenter of the world. Many flocked to their second homes in the Hamptons or upstate, while others rented or bought new properties, abandoning their expensive city apartments.Now, six months on with no end to the national nightmare in sight, many are laying down permanent roots.

Amid the new 21st century woke revolution however, kneeling has become a key signifier for players and teams to declare which side of the culture wars one sits on. It’s those who love America versus those who hate it, the latter of which despises the American flag and all that it represents as a relic of white supremacy that must be condemned.

The lawsuit filed Monday in federal court alleges that the repeated use of force by the Seattle Police Department has made it impossible for them to exercise their right to protest without pricey personal protective gear. “Because protesters now must purchase expensive equipment to be assured that they will be able to protest safely, the indiscriminate use of weapons by SPD implicates equal protection,” the lawsuit says.
