WASHINGTONEarly progress toward an agreement aimed at ridding North Korea of nuclear weapons has suddenly raised an idea that thrills many Republicans as much as it horrifies many Democrats: a Nobel Peace Prize for President Donald Trump."No-bel! No-bel! No-bel!" an appreciative crowd chanted in Michigan over the weekend, as Trump spoke of the possibility that he could help broker peace between North Korea and South Korea and an end to the nuclear threat hanging over the United States and its allies."That's very nice, thank you. That's very nice," Trump replied, smiling at the thought. "Nobel!" he then exclaimed with a chuckle, appearing to acknowledge the improbability. "I just want to get the job done."Nearly nine years after President Barack Obama was awarded the prize, a growing chorus of Trump boosters argue that the current president should receive it as well - in his case, for efforts to contain North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and woo him into diplomatic talks.But even the … [Read more...] about A Nobel Peace Prize for President Trump?

VIRGINIA BEACHNick Freitas and E.W. Jackson, two of three Republicans seeking the party's nod to run against U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine in November, barely mentioned the Democrat in their debate Monday night but repeatedly berated former President Barack Obama who left office 15 months ago.In responding to a moderator's questions in front of about 75 Republicans at dinner in The Town Center Club, the candidates expressed similar views on the nation's overseas wars, tax policy, health care, and immigration.

Good Tuesday Morning, Fellow Seekers. In a sharply worded letter to party loyalists, state Republican Chairman Val DiGiorgio tried to "refute the nonsense and fake news," stemming from a report by the political website City & State Pa. cataloguing fund-raising and staff woes at the state party. Usually flush with cash, the state party had just $15,000 on-hand last December and its usually busy headquarters on State Street in Harrisburg was vacant of staff, the insider website reported last week. "I think we usually had about 20 people; in presidential years, we probably had over 200, including field staff," former state chairman Rob Gleason told City & State's Ryan Briggs. "One of the most effective things I was able to do was hire good staff. But you need a lot of money to do that." In his letter, DiGiorgio refuted the story's claims about the party's money woes: "When we started we had less money in the bank then was needed for one month of operating expenses, no staff … [Read more...] about With primary looming, are Pa.
