If there ever was any doubt as to who Mr. Virtue-signaler Romney was out for, Mitt’s editorial should have eliminated any doubt. Mitt couldn’t even wait to be sworn in before starting his choreographed Trump trash talking.
At the state’s Republican Party convention in West Valley City, Romney finished second in votes from party delegates, behind state lawmaker Mike Kennedy.
That means Kennedy, who captured 50.18 percent of the delegate vote, and Romney (49.12 percent) will face each other in a GOP primary election June 26.
You say you “Misspoke” on Middle-class Tax Cuts, Mitch??
As reported by TPM, “McConnell: I ‘Misspoke’ On No Tax Increase For Middle Class Families“.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said Friday that he “misspoke” when he previously claimed that “no one in the middle class is going to get a tax increase” under the Senate’s plan.
In a Friday interview with the New York Times, McConnell acknowledged that some working families would end up paying higher taxes if their bill passed, contradicting his comments from earlier this week.
Maine Sen. Susan Collins’ announcement that she will not vote for her party’s last-ditch attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare effectively dooms Republican hopes of abolishing a law they spent eight years campaigning against.
NewsMax reports, “Jeff Flake: Trump Should Have Honored Judicial Process on Arpaio“.
Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake said Friday that he would have “preferred” that President Donald Trump allow the judicial process to “take its course” instead of pardoning former Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
Flake, who has slammed Trump and his policies in recent weeks, took to Twitter:
Regarding the Arpaio pardon, I would have preferred that the President honor the judicial process and let it take its course.

Remember, come Primary Season, that Senator Flake has aligned himself with Hillary Clinton’s view of Sheriff Joe. Hillary’s view, from the New York Times,
Hillary Clinton sharply denounced Sheriff Joe Arpaio, saying the Maricopa County sheriff, who became the face of hard-line anti-immigration policies because of his tactics here, had treated his “fellow human beings with disrespect” and contempt.”
“It just makes my heart sink,” Mrs. Clinton told a rally of mostly Latino supporters on Monday. “We are better than that.”
Yes, Senator. You make our hearts sink, too. Such a disappointment you are.
