Violent Democrats Driving Voters To GOP

The Democrats and their leftist mobs are in panic mode.  The few who have a smidgeon of lucidity left realize that their screaming antics during the Kavanaugh hearings and throughout the campaign are backfiring on them. That's why they don't want conservatives to make this a key theme in the final weeks of the election.

My Latest Memo On The 2018 Election

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

GOP Must Nationalize The Election On Kavanaugh Confirmation

The Kavanaugh confirmation battle is motivating conservative voters in North Dakota, West Virginia, Missouri and other states.

I Call BS On Tip O’Neill's Claim 'All Politics Is Local'

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
What Tip O’Neill really meant was that focusing on local issues is what wins elections for Democrats, because they can’t campaign on their state and national agendas of raising taxes, opening the borders, enabling sanctuary cities, giving benefits to illegal aliens, cutting national defense and nationalizing health care and anything else they can get their hands on.

The Club for Growth PAC, the political action committee for the right-leaning free-market advocacy group, is on a bit of a hot streak.

Texas Retirements May Bring New Conservative Stars To Congress

If Texas elects to Congress a slate of new conservative leaders it will be in no small measure due to the efforts of conservative Senator Ted Cruz.

Capitol Hill GOP Spending Like Obama Is Still President

We urge CHQ readers to call the toll-free Capitol Switchboard (1-866-220-0044) to ask for House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy. Tell Rep.

Kelli Ward Takes Commanding Lead In AZ GOP Primary

Even with Dr. Kelli Ward leading the GOP field and likely Democratic rival Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, the Senate Leadership Fund, which is run by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s allies, has said it will do everything it can to ensure Ward is not the next senator from Arizona.

Did Senator Lindsey Graham Finally Get One Right?

If Senator Graham can cajole his buddy John McCain into voting for his bill it just might allow Republicans to, at least part way, make good on their eight-year pledge to repeal and replace Obamacare.

Conservatives Giving Senate GOP One Last Chance On Obamacare Repeal

This is the last chance Capitol Hill’s establishment Republicans have to get right with the GOP’s conservative majority.

Cruz Endorses Latest Senate Obamacare Repeal, So Do We

The latest Senate Obamacare repeal bill is, given the weak-kneed GOP leadership, as close to repeal as we're going to get. Ultimately, the final answer to repealing Obamacare and restoring a free market in health insurance is to be found in only one place: The Republican primary elections.

Conservatives Got Aggressive And McConnell Blinked
