Statement on Announcement of Carly Fiorina as Ted Cruz’s Running Mate

“This is a desperate move from a desperate and dying campaign. And it’s fitting that a man best known for shutting down the U.S. government would select a woman best known for almost shutting down a great U.S. company. Under Carly Fiorina, Hewlett-Packard’s stock lost over half of its value, earning her status as one of the ‘Worst American CEOs of all…

If you thought Trump was offensive toward women, take a look at Ted Cruz

“It’s hard to think of two candidates as bad on issues important to women as Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, a testament to just to how far the Republican Party has gotten from most Americans.

GOP’s paid leave “plans” are either unworkable or nonexistent

We know that on principle, Republicans are opposed to many initiatives that help middle-class and working families – things like raising the minimum wage, pay equity, and affordable health initiatives.

GOP Candidates “Laughably” Try to Distance Themselves from Trump Despite Imitating Him for Months

Last night’s extraordinarily un-American call by GOP frontrunner Donald Trump to ban Muslims from entering the United States, including Muslim U.S. citizens traveling abroad and presumably those who serve in our intelligence services and military, is anything but an isolated incident. In fact the Republican field of presidential candidates has spent weeks sowing fear and attempting to marginalize the Muslim community…

Trump goes on a tirade, GOP pushes panic button, scramble to draft Romney begins

Last night, the GOP frontrunner went on a jaw-dropping 95-minute screed that offended, well, pretty much everyone. Here are some of the lowest of the low-lights: On Iowans: “How stupid are the people of Iowa?

With signs saying “13 Million Jobs – No Going Back,” Democrats in Milwaukee held a press conference yesterday to welcome the Republican presidential candidates to their city for tonight’s Fox Business debate.
