Rudy Giuliani issued his first public defense after details emerged from his big cameo appearance in Borat Subsequent Moviefilm. While it may look like he was touching himself inappropriately with his hands down his pants in a hotel room alongside an actress posing as a reporter, he swore that he was actually just tucking in his shirt."I had to take off the electronic equipment," Giuliani said in a radio interview on Wednesday. "And when the electronic equipment came off, some of it was in the back and my shirt came a little out, although my clothes were entirely on. I leaned back, and I tucked my shirt in, and at that point, at that point, they have this picture they take which looks...

When Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) theatrically mocked Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris' first name at a rally in front of President Donald Trump and a fired-up crowd last week, it reminded a national audience that there is, in fact, another heated U.S. Senate contest in the battleground state of Georgia.And that race might be just as intense as the Shakespearean blood feud unfolding between Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) and Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA)-and, at the very least, just as pivotal to the larger battle over control of the U.S. Senate next year.The contest between Perdue, a first-term Republican, and Jon Ossoff, a Democrat who in 2017 ran and lost in the first blockbuster...
MACON, Ga. -- President Donald Trump held a rally in Georgia on Friday, 18 days before the November general election. It wasn't a good sign for him.That Trump is still campaigning in what should be a safely Republican state -- and in others that should be solidly in his column like Iowa and Ohio -- is evidence to many Democrats that Joe Biden's polling lead in the presidential race is solid and durable. Trump spent Monday in Arizona, too, a state that was once reliably Republican but where his unpopularity has helped make Biden competitive.For some Democrats, Trump's attention to red states is also a sign of something else -- something few in the party want to discuss out loud, given...
Natalie Pontius is an interior decorator, married, with two children, and is a University of Georgia alumna. She was born and raised in Atlanta but moved to the city's exurbs with her family several years ago, drawn to the region's quality of public education. In November, she's voting for Donald Trump.The decision was a no-brainer."The riots, the push to defund the police -- that's not the direction our country needs to go," Pontius, 48, said. "I feel like the Democratic Party is continually trying to come up with ways to divide us."She believes that Trump, on the other hand, "is looking out for me as a person."National polling has consistently shown that white college-educated voters...
On Sept. 23, Dr. Stephen M. Hahn left a virtual meeting of the White House's coronavirus task force to take a call from the president's chief of staff, Mark Meadows.Meadows was angry with Hahn, head of the Food and Drug Administration, for pushing new guidelines for vaccine developers, according to two senior administration officials familiar with the call who requested anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss it. The FDA wanted to require two months of follow-up data to make sure a vaccine was safe and effective, all but ensuring one would not be ready by Election Day as President Donald Trump had promised.Meadows told the commissioner the White House would not sign off on...

Obama, who served eight years in office with Biden as his vice president, will urge supporters to vote early for Biden and other Democratic candidates in the general election at an outdoor drive-in rally in Pennsylvania's biggest city, Philadelphia, an aide to the former president said. The rare public appearance by Obama, a frequent target for Trump's attacks and still one of the Democratic Party's biggest stars nearly four years after leaving the White House, comes at a critical time.
President Donald Trump's reelection campaign committee is entering the critical final stretch of his second bid for the White House with just $63 million left in the bank -- a significant financial deficit for the incumbent compared to his cash-flushed challenger, Joe Biden, the latest campaign disclosure reports show. The sum was a stunning reversal for a campaign that in the spring boasted $180 million more on hand than Biden and Democrats, as the former vice president was coming out of a competitive primary as the presumptive Democratic nominee. Seven months later, the Biden's campaign committee closed out September with $177 million in the bank, which is nearly triple his rival's...
Fox News host Sean Hannity took his already over-the-top promotion of the Hunter Biden laptop story to new heights on Tuesday night, setting up a camera outside Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's house and calling for Biden to "walk outside" and do a live interview to "answer these pressing questions."Over the past few days, Trumpworld has gone all-in on Trump personal attorney Rudy Giuliani's "October surprise"-a series of New York Post stories centered on materials purportedly from Hunter Biden's laptop that supposedly show "smoking gun" evidence of corruption on the part of the Bidens. The emails that have been disseminated so far, however, do not show any direct...
Looking to undermine rival Joe Biden two weeks before the election, President Donald Trump's campaign has seized on a tabloid story offering bizarre twists to a familiar line of attack: Biden's relationship with Ukraine. The origins of the story also trace back to Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who has repeatedly pushed unfounded claims about Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.
"Nobody cares about Hunter Biden," said Frank Luntz, who argued that the Trump campaign is focusing on all the wrong issues, The Hill reports.

One Monday evening last month, Hillary Clinton and Sen. Kamala Harris, and two actors who portrayed them on "Saturday Night Live," Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph, gathered for a virtual fundraiser benefiting the Biden campaign. By all accounts, the livestream was a smashing success: About 100,000 people watched and donated. The event raised $4.4 million.That same night, Joe Biden beamed into a more intimate affair of fewer than two dozen people: a $500,000-per-ticket fundraiser hosted by billionaire financier Haim Saban. It raised even more: $4.5 million.While Biden's campaign has trumpeted the small donations flooding in at record rates, the elite world of billionaires and...
Like so many modern election sagas, it started with a tweet.In 2019, Jena Griswold, the newly installed secretary of state in Colorado, saw a tweet falsely claiming that her state's election system had been hacked, using a picture of voting equipment as evidence."It wasn't equipment that we even use in the state of Colorado," Griswold, a Democrat, said. Though her office was able to contact Twitter and take the tweet down within an hour, the flare-up was yet another reminder of just how pervasive election misinformation had become since the 2016 presidential election.To prevent deceptive tweets, doctored videos and other forms of misinformation from undermining Colorado's elections,...
The hosts of Fox & Friends sat back and remained silent on Tuesday morning as right-wing radio host Tony Katz repeatedly ridiculed Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's well-known stutter.During an interview on President Donald Trump's favorite morning show, co-host Ainsley Earhardt brought up the Commission on Presidential Debates' decision to allow for the candidates' microphones to be muted during Thursday's presidential debate-a direct reaction to Trump's repeated interruptions during the first debate.After Katz, a frequent Fox News guest, said that this was a "miserable idea" and wondering aloud why they don't just use "shock collars" while they're at it, he then took aim at...
The Justice Department said Monday that President Donald Trump should not be sued personally for having denied a rape allegation because he made the statement while acting in his official capacity as president.Lawyers for the government made the argument as they defended Attorney General William Barr's decision to intervene in a defamation lawsuit filed in a New York court against Trump by E. Jean Carroll, a writer.Carroll has said that Trump raped her in a department store two decades ago and then falsely denied the attack while in office, branding her a liar and harming her reputation.But Justice Department lawyers say that even though the allegation concerns an incident that occurred...
The person taking the oath of office Jan. 20 will face an economic mess.That will be true whether that's Joe Biden or Donald Trump, and true whether or not the off-and-on negotiations over a new round of pandemic relief yield anything.Given mass failures of small businesses and continuing astronomical numbers of people filing for jobless benefits, the president will face a situation uncannily similar to the crisis Biden and President Barack Obama faced a dozen years earlier. If it is Biden who comes to power, along with Democratic majorities in the House and Senate, he will have something rare: the chance to look at the lessons of recent history and have a do-over.Obama's first...

With several opinion polls pointing to a Joe Biden presidency, these investors are leaning towards assets such as emerging markets or European bank stocks, as potential beneficiaries of a Democrat win while turning cautious on markets such as Russia which might be hurt by the change. A stimulus-fuelled U.S. growth pickup, accompanied by corporate tax hikes -- both expected under Biden -- could push capital out of the S&P 500 into other markets, especially if a coronavirus vaccine becomes available early next year. A consensus for a weaker dollar, driven by more predictable trade and foreign policies under Biden, will add to the big positive for emerging markets.
The retired Navy SEAL did not specifically name President Trump, but ended the op-ed by saying "I voted for Joe Biden."
MIAMI-For nearly an hour on Monday, Alan Herrera stood in a line to cast his early vote for Joe Biden in the heart of one of Donald Trump's Latino strongholds. The 33-year-old Honduran American slowly inched closer to the entrance of the John F. Kennedy Library in Hialeah, a predominantly Cuban American city in the coveted swing state of Florida where the president and the former vice president appear neck-and-neck in various polls.About a dozen people ahead of Herrera waited their turn to go inside the early voting precinct. Roughly three dozen more voters stood behind him, lining the perimeter of the library. Many of them sported Trump-Pence T-shirts, face masks, and hats.Nearby, a...

With President Donald Trump trailing in public polls in nearly every major battleground state, Republicans are pointing to what they see as more promising data: Updated voter registration tallies show that Republicans have narrowed the gap with Democrats in three critical states.As the presidential campaign heads into its final weeks, Republicans hope that gains in voter registration in the three states -- Florida, North Carolina and Pennsylvania -- and heavy turnout by those new party members might just be enough to propel Trump to a second term."The tremendous voter registration gain by the Republicans is the secret weapon that will make the difference for the Republicans in 2020," said...
One candidate slapped on a helmet, a black leather jacket and rode his Harley Davidson across Michigan. His ads highlight his toughness on China and his support for banning Chinese travelers from entering the United States early in the coronavirus outbreak, a policy of President Donald Trump's.The other candidate calls himself "nonpartisan." He denounces the way politics have become "nastier and more divisive."

NEW YORK -- Over the course of two decades, the New York City Republican Party got two mayors elected in deep blue New York City. It was a neat trick made possible by the party's ability to toe a centrist line -- conservative on the budget, liberal on social issues.But that line has shifted in the era of President Donald Trump, and so has the idea of a New York City Republican.The Metropolitan Republican Club in Manhattan, whose members have included Theodore Roosevelt and Nelson A. Rockefeller, has in the last two years hosted talks by Steve Bannon; the Breitbart News editor, Joel Pollak; and the Proud Boys founder, Gavin McInnes.Republicans are now outnumbered by Democrats in Manhattan...
It is a phrase that has been constantly invoked by Democratic and Republican leaders. It has become the clearest symbol of the mood of the country, and what people feel is at stake in November. Everyone, it seems, is fighting for it."This campaign isn't just about winning votes. It's about winning the heart and, yes, the soul of America," Joe Biden said in August at the Democratic National Convention, not long after the phrase "battle for the soul of America" appeared at the top of his campaign website, right next to his name.Picking up on this, a recent Trump campaign ad spliced videos of Democrats invoking "the soul" of America, followed by images of clashes between protesters and...
This month, a federal judge struck down a decree from Gov. Greg Abbott of Texas limiting each county in the state to a single drop box to handle the surge in absentee ballots this election season, rejecting Abbott's argument that the limit was necessary to combat fraud.Days later, an appellate panel of three judges appointed by President Donald Trump froze the lower court order, keeping Abbott's new policy in place -- meaning Harris County, with more than 2 million voters, and Wheeler County, with well under 4,000, would both be allowed only one drop box for voters who want to hand-deliver their absentee ballots and avoid reliance on the Postal Service.The Texas case is one of at least...
President Donald Trump is being vastly outspent by Joe Biden in television advertising in the general election battleground states and elsewhere, with the former vice president focusing overwhelmingly on the coronavirus as millions of Americans across the country begin casting early votes.Biden has maintained a nearly 2-to-1 advantage on the airwaves for months. His dominance is most pronounced in three critical swing states -- Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin -- where he spent about $53 million to Trump's $17 million over the past month, with ads assailing the president's handling of the economy and taxes as well as the virus, according to data from Advertising Analytics, an ad...
