Rand Paul's biggest political decision is approaching: whether to run for president in 2016 or focus solely on re-election to his U.S. Senate seat. A Republican lawmaker from his home state wants to free him from the potential dilemma by letting him run for both.
U.S. Sen. Rand Paul faces a potential quandary as he weighs whether to run for president in 2016 or focus solely on re-election to his Senate seat. Legislation introduced Thursday in his home state would allow him to run for both.
No one can ever really have the final word at the Conservative Political Action Conference. The three-day event is too massive and too intense to be defined by a single statement, except maybe "a good time was had by all."
Gov. Chris Christie fired up the crowd at CPAC Thursday with his call for Republicans to present a positive agenda, while Sens. Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio laid out the outlines of what that kind of agenda could look like — and Rep. Paul Ryan sounded like a man who's seriously thinking about running for the White House.
Rep. Paul Ryan, Wisconsin Republican, said Thursday that despite some recent jockeying and perceived turmoil in the Republican party, the GOP is "where the action is" and "the center of gravity is shifting."
In years past, the Conservative Action Political Conference — CPAC — has proved a model of management and organization. Doubtless, it will again when the three-day event gets rolling. Ah, but it's an art too.
Republicans are dismissing President Barack Obama's new $3.9 trillion budget as nothing more than a Democratic manifesto for this fall's congressional campaigns, but the fiscal plan is taking hits from another quarter too - anti-deficit groups.
Thousands of conservative activists descend Thursday on the nation’s capital for three days of discussions, panels, debates and speeches, and there’s a once-unthinkable slate of questions on their agenda.
The chairman of the House Budget Committee says he is concerned that President Obama's budget blueprint is going to lead to more legislative gridlock on Capitol Hill over spending, entitlement programs and the national debt.
Two Washington, D.C.-based advocacy groups filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission on Tuesday accusing a U.S. House candidate in Montana of illegally coordinating with the political action committee he created.
President Barack Obama has proposed using disaster funds to help fight wildfires to avoid draining forestry budgets, a move that could help boost Wisconsin's timber industry.
Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan is planning his second trip to Iowa since running as the Republicans' 2012 vice presidential nominee.
Rep. Paul Ryan is headed to Iowa next month to keynote the Iowa GOP's annual Lincoln Dinner — marking the Wisconsin Republican's second trip back to the Hawkeye State since being part of the GOP's losing presidential ticket in 2012.
Like kissing the ring of a mafia don, a Republican who wants to run for president has to speak at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference.
President Barack Obama's election-year budget seeks to rally fellow Democrats with new help for the working poor and fresh money for road-building, education and research. It also pulls back from controversial cuts to Social Security that had been designed to lure Republicans to the bargaining table.
When he started offering spending cuts in 2008, he said, few of his fellow lawmakers were willing to attach their names as co-sponsors.
He said progress in pushing the country — and the GOP — to the right will be slow, but it will come.
