Exclusive: Rubio PAC to Hit Christie in New Hampshire

Marco Rubio has his eyes on Chris Christie, who is increasingly viewed as the dark horse who could, with an impressive showing — even a victory — in New Hampshire, become the GOP’s surprise establishment favorite. 

Starting tomorrow, the super PAC supporting Rubio’s presidential bid is set to go up on the air and online with two attack ads against the New Jersey governor in New Hampshire, where Christie has focused all of his efforts. A source with the Rubio PAC says the ads are “a major part of an ongoing multi-million dollar buy in New Hampshire over the next couple of weeks.” 

The ads come as Christie has increasingly been on the attack against Rubio. Last week, he called on Rubio to resign over his missed Senate votes. The first spot is aimed at conservative voters: It slams Christie’s support for Common Core and his decision to expand Medicaid in New Jersey. “One high tax, Common Core, liberal energy loving, Obamacare Medicaid expanding president is enough,” a narrator says as the infamous image of Christie and Obama embracing in the wake of Hurricane Sandy (and the closing days of the 2012 presidential election) flashes on screen.

Ivy-League Schools Wither

A  number of liberal bastions are daily being hammered — especially the elite university and Silicon Valley. A Yale and a Stanford, or Facebook and Google, assume — for the most part rightly — that each is so loudly progressive that the public, federal and state regulators, and politicians would of ...

In Defense of the Iraq War

Today is the 16th anniversary of the invasion of Iraq, and Twitter is alive with condemnations of the conflict -- countered by precious few defenses. Yet I believed the Iraq War was just and proper in 2003, and I still believe that today. When Donald Trump condemned the war during the 2015 primary campaign and ... Read More
