The most important choice voters will make in the Indiana Republican Primary is “who can beat Hillary Clinton in November?” For those who don’t believe that Donald Trump’s vulgar, crass and demeaning comments about women won’t be a crippling burden in a campaign against Hillary Clinton we invite you to view this video of a commercial being run by Democrat Conner Eldridge in the Arkansas Senate race against incumbent Republican John Boozman.

The media has gone out of its way to say today’s Indiana primary could mark the end of the Republican race, but it will go on regardless of the outcome. Plus, Marco Rubio’s remaining on the sidelines is still a mystery; Will Trump try to use the RNC Committee on Contests to decertify Cruz delegates?, and, Cruz confronts Trump supporter, gets an earful of Trump-isms.

“I guess Boehner must be very well-acquainted with the Devil because if there’s anyone whose duplicity and fecklessness put the Republican Party through hell over the past six years and consigned it to its present state of political purgatory, it is John Boehner.” Richard A. Viguerie, Chairman, ConservativeHQ.com.

We urge our friends in Virginia’s Fifth Congressional District to attend the Fifth District Republican Convention Saturday, May 14, 2016 at 11:00 AM at the Nelson County High School, Lovingston, VA and to vote for principled limited government constitutional conservative Michael Del Rosso to be their representative in Congress.

The open Senate seat in Indiana is one where the two leading candidates present a stark choice between Marlin Stutzman, the principled limited government constitutional conservative and Todd Young, the Big Government – Big Business Mitch McConnell yes-man. We urge our friends in Indiana to vote Marlin Stutzman for Senate in tomorrow’s Indiana Republican primary.

Though Ted Cruz certainly faces a tough challenge in Indiana tomorrow, reports of his demise are likely greatly exaggerated. Plus, Pence endorses Cruz setting Indiana’s machinery in motion to stop Trump; Win or lose, Cruz says his campaign will continue after Indiana, and, Trump’s vice presidential pick likely to wait until July.

Did Ted Cruz's announcement that Carly Fiorina would be his running mate change the dynamics of the remaining Republican primaries? Will it help Cruz get to the magic number of 1,237 delegates? While you may change your mind later, tell us who you'd currently like to see as the GOP nominee.

The Nehlen – Ryan contest is much bigger than who gets the Republican nomination in one congressional district in America’s heartland: It’s about whether, going forward, the Republican Party is the political home of America’s limited government constitutional conservative country class citizens, or an oligarchy of insiders who are so fearful of competition that they won’t even allow conservative ideas six feet of table space at their convention.

Michael Del Rosso is not a professional politician and he’s not a member of the Good Ole Boys’ Club in Richmond, but, as an expert on national security, cybersecurity and the threat radical Islam presents to constitutional liberty, he is exactly the kind of citizen representative we need in Congress today.

Far from being in “denial,” Ted Cruz’s choosing Carly Fiorina as his running mate is a sign of hope that her talents will supplement his to present a complete package for voters. Plus, Bruce “Call me Cait” Jenner uses women’s restroom in Trump Tower, news media goes nuts; Yet another sign the establishment sees the devil in Ted Cruz, and, Are we ready for 25 percent of the electorate to sit out November’s election?

Our friends at the American Family Association are calling for a boycott of Target after the retail giant said it would allow men to use the women's restrooms and dressing rooms in their stores. So far the AFA’s boycott petition has been signed by over 900,000 commonsense Americans who say enough is enough to Target’s unconscionable cave-in to far-Left political correctness. We urge CHQ readers to sign the petition to make sure it crosses the 1 million mark TODAY.

Ted Cruz's decision to make Carly Fiorina his running mate would seem to preclude a grand populist - conservative alliance to break the Washington Cartel. Now the Republican National Convention will be a three army battle in which Trump’s populists, Cruz’s movement conservatives and the dark forces of the Republican establishment all vie against each other for dominance and the Republican nomination for president, and at this point no one can predict which way the battle will turn.

Ted Cruz named Carly Fiorina as his running mate on Wednesday, a bold move that could change the race once again. Plus, At this do-or-die moment in the 2016 campaign, Mike Pence needs to come down off the fence; Indiana could easily show how un-inevitable Trump really is, and, Democrats already mocking Carly as Ted’s running mate.

    Certainly there is fatigue setting in and certainly the Republican establishment is lining up against Cruz, but the establishment was never for him and will never be for him. Conservatives though, and the party as a whole, still need a viable alternative to the electoral disaster that comes with Donald Trump.

  • Joe Cunningham, RedState

    This is exactly the type of thing Democrats across the country are going to do to all Republicans on the ballot this year – if there is even the remote chance you may have said somewhere you’d support the candidate, then you’re going to receive the exact same type of treatment as Boozman.

  • Jesse Byrnes, The Hill

    Cruz sought to brush off a confrontation from earlier in the day when he engaged a group of Trump supporters who were chanting for the Texas senator to "do the math." "It began with one of the lead protesters cursing at me and yelling at me," Cruz said at his rally, quipping, "I was glad to see that he was channeling the candidate he's supporting."

  • Ryan Lovelace, Washington Examiner

    Recent polling of the Hoosier State shows Donald Trump's lead expanding, and RealClearPolitics' average of Indiana polls gives him a 9.3-percentage-point advantage on the Texan. But Cruz sounded confident that he was closer than the polls show.

  • Mark Niquette, Bloomberg

    With Trump leading in several polls Cruz is tapping a network of social and religious conservatives in Indiana that is naturally aligned with his candidacy and has been active in legislative fights in the state over religious liberty and traditional values.

  • Rebecca Berg, Real Clear Politics

    In June, the RNC Committee on Contests will evaluate challenges to convention delegates selected at the state level, with the power to recommend that delegates be de-certified by the convention Committee on Credentials.

  • Mark Maley, The Elkhart Truth

    In the last full day of campaigning before Tuesday’s presidential primary, Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz will start his day at an Osceola restaurant  — the first of 10 campaign stops in Indiana

  • Chip Yost, KTLA and LA Times

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz told California Republicans Saturday that the state was at a crossroads where it would decide the party’s nominee for president on June 7. Cruz also played up the California roots of his running mate, Carly Fiorina.

  • Kevin Robillard, Politico

    Young and his supporters have outspent Stutzman 9-to-1 on TV. Senate Leadership Fund — a new super PAC run by allies of Majority Leader Mitch McConnell — has even attacked Stutzman, a first for a PAC in the Crossroads outside-group network, which has typically aired only positive ads in Republican Senate primaries.

  • Eugene Scott, CNN

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is standing his ground in his belief that allowing transgender people to use the bathroom of their choice "opens the door for predators," dismissing criticism from Caitlyn Jenner, who mocked him over the issue last week.

  • Drew Ryun, The Resurgent

    The majority of registered Republicans have voted against their candidate for a reason. It is now only fitting that in the actual delegate process, far away from the bright lights of the media pushing a foul mouthed reality star as the “presumptive nominee,” that the will of the people is actually playing out.

  • Leon H. Wolf, RedState

    The idea that Donald Trump has already won this election is a lie – a lie that is told for the specific purpose of demoralizing the anti-Trump forces. If you live in Indiana, don’t believe the lie tomorrow.

  • Michael Barone, Washington Examiner

    Trump's better-than-even chance of winning the Republican nomination and Sanders' success in pushing Hillary Clinton to the left owe something to another factor: Each party's nominating process has proven better suited this year to the other party.

  • Cory Bennett, The Hill

    A series of data breaches overseas are spurring concerns that hackers could manipulate elections in the United States. The data breaches are raising questions as the U.S. considers whether to move toward electronic balloting. More people than ever are using the internet to register to vote and to request mail-in ballots. Some states have even become vote-by-mail only in recent years.

  • Sara Gonzales, RedState

    Mike Lee spoke to Mark Levin Thursday evening and didn’t hold back when addressing John Boehner’s attack on Ted Cruz.  Keep in mind, Mike Lee is basically the most mild-mannered person in the entire senate, and even he isn’t tolerating this nonsense anymore.
