MANCHESTER, New Hampshire – Conservative columnist Bill Kristol isn't sure if a 2020 Republican primary challenge against President Donald Trump would be successful, but he argues that "it would be important to have one, I think, just to force the debate." Kristol, the founder of the conservative opinion magazine the Weekly Standard and arguably the most notorious leader of the never-Trump movement, brought his message Wednesday to New Hampshire, the state that holds the first primary along the road to the White House. The big question in the state that handed Trump his first victory in the 2016 primaries – which helped propel him to the GOP presidential nomination and eventually the White House - is whether there's appetite among Granite State Republicans for such a primary challenge. Speaking to an audience at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics "Politics and Eggs" series – which is a must stop for potential presidential contenders – Kristol told the … [Read more...] about Conservative Bill Kristol brings his never-Trump message to New Hampshire

This much he pointed out, twice, before anyone had a chance to wonder why he was back.“Wow!” he called out, stepping into the Red Arrow Diner on Tuesday for an unannounced stop, emitting the kind of surprise that only a politician can summon over three dozen people eating lunch. “It was just this crowded the last time.”Mr. Kasich sidled up beside the counter, squatting to greet a young customer, Sophia Bauer, whose name he seemed to hear as “Sylvia.”“How old are you?” he asked. “Five? Are you going to be in first grade? Do you have a dog? Oh, really?” Soon, Sophia was being tickled by the two-term Republican governor of Ohio.

Two years after coming in second to Donald Trump in the New Hampshire Republican primary, Ohio Governor John Kasich spoke at New England College Tuesday night, presenting a sharp contrast to President Trump‘s policies. On DACA, Kasich commented, "So it’s Easter and you wake up and find out we’ve been shipped out, I mean, come on, leaders don’t do that." When asked if he would receive Vladimir Putin in the Oval Office, like there is talk of Trump doing, Kasich responded, "You mean like now? No. Not now. Receive him to do what?" On the media, Kasich said, "I’m very concerned about the assault on the press where it’s all 'fake news.'You wrote something that I don’t agree with, that’s fake."

Independent Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders may be polling second to Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire, but it's not clear voters there will get to see his name on the ballot next to hers. Bernie Sanders: I can beat Hillary Clinton Charles Bass, a former Republican congressman from the first-in-the-nation primary state of New Hampshire, knows his way around the state's presidential election laws - he helped write them - and he harbors doubts about Sanders' eligibility for the Democratic primary ballot. In a Washington Post op-ed published Thursday, he declared,"Sanders is not a Democrat, has not been elected as a Democrat, has never served as a Democrat and cannot plausibly claim, at least in New Hampshire, to be a Democrat." While Sanders caucuses with Democrats in the Senate, the independent senator may have trouble qualifying for the Democratic ballot in New Hampshire. "State law makes clear that candidates must be registered members of the party on whose ballot line they wish to … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Can Bernie Sanders run as a Democrat in New Hampshire?
MANCHESTER, N.H. -- Chris Christie's opening week as a presidential candidate doubled as the first test of his campaign's blueprint for success: Camp out in New Hampshire, the first state in the nation to hold a primary election, and win over Republican primary voters one town hall at a time with his characteristic blunt talk and megawatt charisma. And at least for the opening stretch of his campaign, Christie seems to be able to avoid or neutralize those issues that have hurt him nationally, like the scandal in which his aidesordered the closure of certain lanes of the George Washington Bridge as an apparent act of political retribution, or his work with President Obama in the wake of Superstorm Sandy. Though national and state polls show Christie lagging behind his GOP opponents, Republicans who watched the New Jersey governor up close over five days and more than a dozen campaign events across the state say they were reminded of the star power that helped propel Christie to … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Can Christie turn weaknesses into New Hampshire strengths?

Pennsylvania Congressman Tom Marino is expected to step down from his seat to take on a new role in the Trump administration. Multiple sources tell CBS News that Marino will head up the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), assuming the informal title of drug czar. A source familiar with personnel moves in the White House says that Marino is in the final stages of completing his paperwork and an official announcement is forthcoming. When asked for comment, the White House said it had no personnel announcements at this time. Marino’s office had no comment. Marino, who is serving his third term representing Pennsylvania’s rural 10th congressional district, was appointed to serve on the House’s bipartisan committee combating the opioid epidemic in 2016 after the enactment of two bills he introduced on drug control.

Manchester, New Hampshire (CNN)Republican Sen. Jeff Flake, a vocal critic of President Donald Trump, will stop in the early presidential primary state of New Hampshire on Friday, adding fuel to speculation that the retiring senator will launch a GOP challenge against the sitting President in 2020. "I'm just going for the weather," Flake quipped this week, talking about his upcoming trip. The senator from Arizona, who was facing a tough re-election bid and decided not to run for a second term, isn't knocking down the idea of a presidential campaign, especially against a man who Flake has accused of "charting a very dangerous path" for the country. "I'm not ruling it out," Flake told CNN when asked about 2020. "But it's not in my plans." The senator will speak at the Politics & Eggs series, a must-do stop for potential presidential contenders hosted by the New England Council and the New Hampshire Institute of Politics at Saint Anselm College.
