Posted: January 18, 2012 at 5:00 pm   /   Elections, Politics

The consensus regarding the last GOP debate was that Gingrich shined. Whether because of Gingrich’s debate or because of some other factors, Gingrich looks to have gained some momentum.

Arizona’s John McCain: Super-PACs will “destroy the political process”

Posted: January 14, 2012 at 7:55 am   /   Arizona, Elections, Politics

I think someone is a little upset that one his principle legislative accomplishes ran afoul of the Constitution. Under McCain-Feingold federal law prohibited corporations and unions from using their general treasury funds to make election-related independent expenditures. The U.S. Supreme Court invalidated this law in Citizens United v. FEC, where in a 5-4 decision, the Court found no […]
