    Mario Tama, Getty Images Arizona secretary of state and Democratic nominee for governor, Katie Hobbs, officially refused on Sunday to take place in a debate with her GOP opponent Kari Lake scheduled for mid-October. “Unfortunately, debating a conspiracy theorist like Kari Lake – whose entire campaign platform is to cause enormous chaos and make Arizona the subject of national ridicule – would only lead to constant interruptions, pointless distractions, and childish name-calling,” the Hobbs campaign said in a statement on its website Sunday. The statement served as a response to Arizona’s Citizens Clean Election Commission, which offered Hobbs last week to propose rules for a head-to-head debate. Hobbs, instead, offered a town-hall style format in which each candidate would be questioned separately – a proposal that was rejected. “Arizonans deserve so much better than Kari Lake, and that’s why we’re confident Katie Hobbs will be elected our next governor,” the statement attributed to Hobbs’ campaign manager, Nicole DeMont, added. Lake, who has centered her hard-right, Trump-backed campaign around debunked allegations that the 2020 presidential election was stolen, has made an...
    SCOTTSDALE, Arizona — A Phoenix man is suing GOP Rep. David Schweikert of Arizona for defamation over a "homophobic" ad by the congressman allegedly meant to out primary challenger Elijah Norton ahead of the Aug. 2 primary. The man, Leslie Hammon, has been featured in mailers and street signs standing next to Norton, who is running against Schweikert for the Republican nomination in Arizona's newly configured 1st Congressional District. Hammon met Norton through Norton's then-girlfriend. In the picture used in mailers and street signs by Schweikert's campaign, Hammon's face is pixelated, and the men have their arms around one another. The photo was taken at a club four years ago. But Hammon said in legal documents that he never gave his permission to use the photo, nor was he ever sexually involved with Norton, as the ads seem to suggest. The text on the mailers, purportedly sent to 50,000 district residents, reads, "Elijah Norton isn't being straight with you," while a street sign reads, "Elijah Norton Unfit for Congress."

    Washington (CNN)One of Hillary Clinton's campaign lawyers argued in court Thursday that he never had any reason to doubt the accuracy of internet data he passed to the FBI in 2016 about strange cyber links between Donald Trump and Russia -- and pointed out that the special counsel who charged him with lying notably hasn't accused him of making up the information.During a court hearing, special counsel John Durham's prosecutors repeatedly sidestepped the question of whether the underlying data was fabricated. Clinton campaign attorney Michael Sussmann, who gave the material to the FBI's top lawyer at a September 2016 meeting, has been charged with lying during that meeting about whether he was there on behalf of a client.The data, which was compiled by cybersecurity experts, seemed to suggest that there might be a communications backchannel between the Trump Organization and Alfa Bank, the largest private bank in Russia. An FBI investigation ultimately concluded there weren't any improper cyber links between the companies, according to a Justice Department inspector general report.Sussmann pleaded not guilty and is fighting the case, which is...
    Former Rep. Katie Hill, D-Calif., had her case dismissed against the Daily Mail for publishing nude photos of her in 2019. A few of the controversial photos depicted her in an intimate relationship with one of her campaign staffers, leading to rumors she was in a "throuple" with the staffer and her then-husband Kenny Heslep. Dismissing the case on Wednesday, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Yolanda Orozco cited the First Amendment and ruled the Daily Mail photos were in the "public interest." "Here, the intimate images published by (the Daily Mail) spoke to (Hill’s) character and qualifications for her position, as they allegedly depicted (Hill) with a campaign staffer whom she was alleged to have had a sexual affair with and appeared to show (Hill) using a then-illegal drug and displaying a tattoo that was controversial because it resembled a white supremacy symbol that had become an issue during her congressional campaign," Orozco wrote. Her lawsuit, filed on Dec. 22, alleged the Daily Mail, RedState.com, who published text messages between Hill and the staffer, and Heslep, who took the photos, were guilty of violating the Civil Code and intentionally inflciting "emotional...
    The fate of the country is resting in the hands of the Georgia Senate runoff elections, according to Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., who said Democratic Senate candidate Rev. Raphael Warnock has failed to uphold the values of his home state. "The things that he’s been spatting down here are not consistent with Georgia values," Collins told "Hannity," before taking a shot at the other Democrat in the state's runoffs. "Jon Ossoff is just an unknown candidate who has too many ties to the Chinese Communist Party and the liberal left." Warnock is trying to unseat Sen. Kelly Loeffler, while Ossoff is trying to oust Sen. David Perdue. Collins, a former pastor, said he’s not sure Georgians will align with Warnock’s identity as a pro-choice theologian. GEORGIA GOV. KEMP SAYS SIGNATURE MATCH AUDIT FINDINGS SHOULD INSPIRE CONFIDENCE IN UPCOMING RUNOFFS Collins expressed that since the results on Jan. 5 will be leaving a lot at stake for both parties, the races aren’t only concerning the state of Georgia, but the entire country. Georgia Senate candidate Raphael Warnock attends a rally on Dec. 21 in...
    WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. (KDKA) – Vic Walczak of the ACLUThe president’s newly hired campaign lawyer Rudy Giuliani made his first court appearance. Giuliani appeared in federal court in Williamsport, Pa. on behalf of the Trump campaign after several Pennsylvania lawyers dropped their representation. Before Judge Matthew Brann, Giuliani said the Trump campaign’s latest complaint should not be dismissed summarily by the court, as requested by the commonwealth. Giuliani argued all mail-in ballots from seven democratic counties, including Allegheny County, should be disqualified and not counted. “Mail-in ballots are exceptionally dangerous…We weren’t allowed to observe absentee ballot counting…There were 1.5 million absentee ballots that Republicans could not see…This is an outrage…They stole an election,” said Giuliani.

    Joe Biden's presidential campaign on Wednesday morning argued the race is "moving to a conclusion" in their favor, striking a confident tone about battleground states that have yet to declare a winner — while suggesting key districts in those states could be called as late as Thursday. Election night ended without a presidential race call, as the results in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Georgia, Nevada and Alaska hung in limbo. TRUMP CLAIMS VICTORY WITH MANY STATES STILL UNDECLARED, HINTS AT POSSIBLE SUPREME COURT CASE A Biden campaign official on Wednesday morning, though, told Fox News that the race is moving to a conclusion in their favor. "This is moving to a conclusion — and moving to a conclusion in our favor," the official said.  The official projected confidence in the contest in Wisconsin, saying they expect it to be called in favor of the former vice president later this Wednesday morning. As for Michigan, the campaign says they will have an “insurmountable” vote-by-mail lead and expect that battleground state to be called later Wednesday. The official also said the campaign is confident in Pennsylvania,...
    Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) advocated Friday in favor of filling the Supreme Court vacancy left by the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg before the election, saying that filling seats on the court to protect rights was a primary reason many voters support the president. “I believe that the president should, next week, nominate a successor to the court, and I think it is critical that the Senate takes up and confirms that successor before Election Day. There’s gonna be enormous pressure from the media, there’s gonna be enormous pressure from Democrats to delay filling this vacancy, but this election—this nomination—is why Donald Trump was elected. This confirmation is why the voters voted for a Republican majority in the Senate,” Cruz told Sean Hannity on Fox News. The Texas senator, who was recently put on President Donald Trump’s list of potential Supreme Court nominees (though he has since said he isn’t interested), also argued that the nation’s highest court needs to be at full capacity to settle any election disputes that arise, saying that the nature of the comments from Democratic...
    As angrily as President Donald Trump rails against the mainstream media — and as much as he complains about “fake news” — he also has a history of trying to manipulate the media to his advantage. But liberal columnist Greg Sargent, in his Post column, argues that Trump is losing his ability to manipulate the news cycle and cites this week’s COVID-19 vaccine controversy as an example. “President Trump is sometimes said to possess an almost mystical level of control over the news cycle and the public narrative — an otherworldly dominance that is usually depicted with well-worn phrases like ‘Trump is flooding the media zone’ or ‘Trump thrives on chaos’ or ‘Trump’s distractions are working for him,’” Sargent explains. “But if Trump ever did possess such paranormal powers, the real story of the moment is that he’s losing control of them — and they are now operating against him.” Sargent describes “the rollout of a coronavirus vaccine” as an example of “this emerging dynamic,” noting that a vaccine is “becoming a major issue in the presidential race, but not...
    Presidential nominee Joe Biden is being held hostage by the Democrats as a political strategy, Hoover Institution Senior Fellow Victor Davis Hanson told “The Ingraham Angle.” TRUMP CAMPAIGN SEIZES ON HARRIS 'SLIP' DURING ROUNDTABLE Hanson said it seems  Biden is unable to speak freely on his own terms and that "screen image we see" during Zoom meetings is akin to "The Wizard of Oz." “It’s a false illusion. There’s somebody manipulating it,” he said. ERIC TRUMP RIPS BIDEN: HE BLAMES PRESIDENT FOR WILDFIRES WHILE 'DEMOCRATS HAVEN'T DONE A DAMN THING' ABOUT BLM 'BURNING CHURCHES' Hanson said the Biden campaign had to make a "calculated decision" that running a virtual campaign is a safer option than "letting him be out and be a regular candidate." Biden also has to walk a fine line when it comes to condemning police violence so he does not compromise his base, Hanson said. Biden campaigns on the idea that America’s troubles, including protest violence, the coronavirus pandemic and the economic recession will all “magically disappear” upon his election, Hanson said.

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — Attorneys for President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign are urging a federal judge in Las Vegas to block a state law and prevent mail-in ballots from going to all active Nevada voters less than eight weeks before the Nov. 3 elections and amid the coronavirus pandemic. The campaign argues in documents filed Tuesday in a bid to keep its lawsuit alive that it is hurt by the state law passed in July by the Democrat-led Legislature because it forces Republicans to divert resources to “educating Nevada voters on those changes and encouraging them to still vote.” Thea McDonald, a spokeswoman for the Trump campaign, declined to comment Thursday about the lawsuit. Attorneys for the state did not immediately respond to messages. The Trump campaign argues that sending ballots to nearly 1.7 million active voters in Nevada will impede Republicans’ ability to elect candidates “because the law will ‘confuse’ their voters and ‘create incentive’ to stay away from the polls.” Mail-in ballots are due to be sent out in the next few weeks. The 16-page U.S. District...
    Joe Biden should be less like Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and more like Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., if he wants to win the White House in November, Fox News contributor Karl Rove told "Bill Hemmer Reports" Tuesday. "He has achieved what nobody has ever been able to achieve, and that is receive his party’s nomination after losing not one, not two, but the first three contests, pretty remarkable," the former George W. Bush adviser told host Bill Hemmer. " So, look, how did he do it?" Rove asked. "He is the most traditional Democrat." KLOBUCHAR INSISTS BIDEN 'BELIEVES IN CAPITALISM' AND WANTS 'TO GET THIS ECONOMY WORKING AGAIN' The Trump campaign has repeatedly sought to portray Biden as a conduit for socialst and far-left ideas. Earlier on "Bill Hemmer Reports," Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., pushed back on the idea that Biden was a "trojan horse" for socialism. "If he echoes her rather than her Senate colleague Bernie Sanders, he’s got a better chance at winning," Rove said of Biden and Klobuchar. "That is to say, if he says 'I’m a Democrat but I've worked over the last 47 years with Republicans and Democrats alike in order to get...
    President Trump on Monday argued the U.S. government surveillance of people connected to his 2016 campaign during the Obama era could be a “potential liability” for former national security adviser Susan Rice if she is selected as Joe Biden’s running mate. “I don’t want to say how much she’s involved,” Trump said of Rice during a Monday press briefing, referencing the surveillance of people on his campaign. “Frankly, if he chooses her that’s fine, but that’s a potential liability.” SUSAN RICE: 5 THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT BIDEN'S POSSIBLE DEMOCRATIC VP CONTENDER His comments in response to a question about Rice could preview his line of attack should Biden choose her to run on the Democratic ticket. Trump has long railed against the surveillance of several figures on his campaign, including his first national security adviser Michael Flynn, who campaigned for Trump in 2016, and foreign policy campaign adviser Carter Page. TRUMP ABRUPTLY ESCORTED OUT OF WHITE HOUSE PRESS BRIEFING, RETURNS TO SAY THERE WAS A 'SHOOTING' OUTSIDE Accusing the Obama administration of spying on his campaign, Trump said Monday: “They used...
    President Trump is doing better now against Joe Biden than he was four years at this point against Hillary Clinton, the Trump campaign told Fox News, pointing to improved polling and grassroots operations. "Anywhere we look at this point on the states we're tracking, we are ahead of where we were in 2016," Erin Perrine, Trump campaign director of press communications, said in an interview with Fox News. GOP OFFICIALS PREVIEW ‘EPIC’ TRUMP ADDRESS, FIRST FAMILY ROLE IN EVOLVING CONVENTION PROGRAM Despite the devastating coronavirus pandemic and national polling showing Trump consistently trailing the former vice president, the Trump campaign signaled optimism about his prospects for a second term given an improved ground game in battleground states and polling that shows he's trailing Biden at a smaller margin than Clinton in 2016. "The campaign is doing exceptionally well across the country," Perrine said. "We have made over 75 million voter contacts. And to compare that to 2016, we had made just over 30 million the entire cycle." As for polling, the gap has been closing between Biden and Trump in recent days. The Real Clear Politics average...
