He’s a great talent.'”

ㅤ”Respondents were given six names as well as the options ‘undecided’ and ‘refused’ to answer the question, ‘If the Republican Primary for US Senate were held today and your choices were (read choices from below), who would you vote for?’ The names listed as options were former Arizona State Senator Kelli Ward, Rep. Martha McSally, former Rep. Matt Salmon, Rep. David Schweikert, former Rep. John Shadegg, and Arizona Board of Regents member Jay Heiler.
ㅤWard took the lead with 26.4 percent. Eight points behind was McSally with 18.6 percent. Salmon trailed with just 10.4 percent with the three other names polling in the low to mid-single digits. Undecideds were just 28 percent with ten months left until Arizona’s August 28, 2018, primary election day. Just over six percent refused to answer the question.”
ㅤ”Trump has repeatedly denied any coordination or improper contacts between his campaign and Moscow, and has called Mueller’s investigation a political ‘witch hunt’ propagated by Democrats as an excuse for Hillary Clinton’s loss in the 2016 election.”
ㅤ”After I saw and witnessed yesterday the overwhelming loud approval and support for the President that we had yesterday at the lunch, I got to thinking, you know, maybe we do better by having some of the people who just don’t like him leave, and replace them with somebody else,’ Senator Inhofe said. ‘And I think that’s what is happening.”

ㅤ”The candidate survey underscores the tricky balancing act facing Republican Senate candidates in 2018, which is shaping up to be a proxy war between the party establishment and its grass-roots base.
ㅤOn one side is McConnell and his deep ties to the national party’s donor network, a prized asset for any candidate facing a tough primary. On the other side is Breitbart chairman and former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon, the anti-establishment provocateur with an influential news outlet who is asking candidates to oppose the majority leader.”

Hell, the Senate can’t pass any of our confirmations,’ Mick Mulvaney fumed in an interview, slapping a table for emphasis. ‘You ask me if the Republican-controlled Senate is an impediment to the administration’s agenda: All I can tell you is so far, the answer’s yes.’
ㅤThe revulsion for the Senate’s age-old traditions and byzantine procedure boiled over in public repeatedly on Monday. Trump complained in front of TV cameras that the Senate is ‘not getting the job done’ and said he sees where Steve Bannon — his former chief strategist now planning to run primary challengers against incumbent Republican senators — ‘is coming from.'”
