MASSACHUSETTS: Scott Lively Declares “Great Victory” In Gubernatorial Race

Ted Cruz: Hearing For Loretta Lynch Must Wait Until New Senate Takes Office

“President Obama’s Attorney General nominee deserves fair and full consideration of the United States Senate, which is precisely why she should not be confirmed in the lame duck session of Congress by senators who just lost their seats and are no longer accountable to the voters.
