Trump and Clinton top the weekend, Bush Resigns

Presidential Race 2016: Trump vs Clinton

Trump takes South Carolina Donald Trump has won the South Carolina Republican primary, after a tremendous show of strength in the heart of the South that validates his status as the GOP’s national front-runner. Following his victory in New Hampshire earlier this month and a second-place finish in the Iowa caucuses, businessman Donald Trump who has self-funded his entire campaign has had a critical burst of momentum heading into Nevada’s Republican caucuses Tuesday and the slate of 13 states voting on Super Tuesday, March 1. Trump’s performance could unnerve the Republican establishment, since South Carolina has sided with the eventual nominee in every GOP presidential race since 1980, apart from 2012.

The 2014 Election Recap – Florida

TOP OF THE TICKET Republican Gov. Rick Scott won re-election in Florida with 48 percent of the vote over Democratic challenger Charlie Crist’s 47 percent. Libertarian Adrian Wyllie had about 4 percent. Scott was elected in 2010 in what was also a tight race, but that one wasn’t decided until the day after the election. Crist was elected governor in 2006 as a Republican. He became an independent in 2010 when he ran for the U.S. Senate and it became apparent he would lose the GOP primary. He became a Democrat two years ago. __ CONGRESS Incumbents lost in both of Florida’s only competitive U.S. congressional races. In the Panhandle, Democratic challenger Gwen Graham beat Republican Congressman Steve Southerland 50.5 percent to 49.5 percent.

Fed appeals courts disagree on legality of Obamacare subsidies

BREAKING: A federal appeals court has just ruled that most ‪‎Obamacare‬ subsidies are illegal proving just how unworkable the President’s healthcare law is for the American people. In a dramatic split decision, two federal appellate panels on Tuesday disagreed on whether billions of dollars of government subsidies that helped 4.7 million people buy insurance on HealthCare.gov are legal. A panel of federal appeals court that covers Washington, D.C., ruled 2-1 that the subsidies are illegal. But about two hours later, a panel from the Fourth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled 3-0 in a separate case that the subsidies are legal. The split could mean the cases would soon land at the U.S. Supreme Court. In the D.C. circuit case, the panel said such subsidies can be granted only to people who bought insurance in an Obamacare exchange run by an individual state or the District of Columbia—not on the ...
