UK Guardian: Ted Cruz's early 2016 funding topples Romney, suggesting big-money race

http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2015/apr/16/ted-cruz-presidential-campaign-donations-first-week

Ted Cruz is raising money for his presidential campaign at a significantly faster rate than Mitt Romney did four years ago, eclipsing the early total raised by the former Massachusetts governor who went on to win the Republican nomination in 2012.

The conservative Texas senator, who is seeking to unite the Republicans’ Tea Party wing behind his White House run, raised $4.3m during the final days of March – his first full week after declaring as a candidate for president.

Cruz proved particularly popular with small donors, raising more in his first week from contributors giving $200 or less than Romney did in the first 11 weeks of his campaign.

But the rightwing senator also raked in some noteworthy donations from two wealthy Republican donors – a sports owner and a private-equity investor – who are likely to be kingmakers in the forthcoming race for Super Pac money.

Cruz remains my prediction for who will win the 2016 GOP nom. Oh, and check out this hurlworthy quote from Cruz:

Ted Cruz backs unlimited campaign cash: 'Money absolutely can be speech'


Just did a video piece with the Guardian on Hillary. Will let you all know

When it it viewable.

Politico claims Kasich would be the GOP's best chance. I don't think he is worth discussing...

anymore than Huntsman is worth discussing, except in passing.

First, here is the link to the Politico article: http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2015/04/john-kasich-is-the-gop-only-hope-for-president-116855.html?ml=po#.VS_oavnF-So

As I said on my FB Page, if anyone thinks for a minute that a GOP governor who embraced ACA/Obamacare for his state has a prayer to get the GOP nomination, you are kidding yourself. For the GOP, that's even worse than Jeb and Rubio's moderate overtures toward immigration reform.

It's official, Lincoln Chafee is running for the 2016 Democratic Nomination for President

http://www.politico.com/story/2015/04/lincoln-chafee-president-candidate-democratic-primary-campaign-117047.html

Just a week after forming an exploratory committee, Lincoln Chafee indicated on Thursday morning that he will, in fact, mount a run for the Democratic nomination for president.
“That’s why I’m running. Because I feel strong about where we’re going as a country,” the former Rhode Island governor told CNN.

Wtf? This is getting really silly now.

Please check out this comment by me and the OP that illicited it.

I don't understand how anyone could propose something so at odds with reality.

Anti-Hillary OP screeds in GD get 200 recs, and pro-Hillary posts get relentlessly attacked. This happens every day here.

Say hello to the newest member of my family: Angela Elizabeth

The latest. "F--k the Jews" isn't antisemitic. Or so some folks are trying to say. AND suggesting

that it IS antisemitic is "playing the antisemite ad-hominem card"

Large LGBT rights segment on my show this week starting at the 45:18 mark...

http://www.blogtalkradio.com/lesersense/2015/03/25/cruz-announcement-obamacare-turns-5-gop-treason-lgbt-rights-and-more

feel free to listen to the whole thing of course, but if you fast forward to 45:18 I'll understand

It's not "going down to Conservatives' level" to call them on their hypocrisy.

I'm not asserting that Cruz isn't eligible to run for President.

But I definitely will confront birther Conservatives on why they don't object to Cruz and why they aren't asking for the same level of proof of citizenship if they objected to Obama.

Just like I will question every Republican I see on why they didn't protest against Mark Sanford being elected to congress if an affair was such a terrible thing for Bill Clinton.

It's the hypocrisy.
