Trump is winning, but his allies worry that his unconventional campaign won’t hold up to the pressure of a general election.” – Politico

The Democratic and Republican presidential candidates are charging into Super Tuesday in a coast-to-coast battle for delegates across a dozen states — but while they’re looking for as many wins as possible, a few select states stand out as the crown jewels.” – Fox News

This is why the media sucks at their job. CNN host Carol Costello barely bothers to conceal the fact that she is a liberal democrat. She had a segment this morning on the Republican race for President, so she wanted to have a guest on. Instead of any one of the tens of millions of Republicans in America – any of which would have been better to talk about the state of the Republican race – she instead went to… openly liberal Democrat David Gergen.” – Red State

“In the days after Donald J. Trump vanquished his Republican rivals in South Carolina and Nevada, prominent Democrats supporting Hillary Clinton arranged a series of meetings and conference calls to tackle a question many never thought they would ask: How do we defeat Mr. Trump in a general election?” – NY Times

“Over the past week, as it’s begun to sink in that — no foolin’ — Donald Trump might really be the nominee, I began to notice a trend among family and friends who are stalwart Republicans.

“When State Department spokesman John Kirby was unable to answer a question about Hillary Clinton’s email scandal on Monday, Fox News reporter Catherine Herridge helped him out.” – FreeBeacon.com

Last night John covered the last (or perhaps just the latest if more turn up) batch of released emails from Hillary Clinton’s bathroom closet server. As usual, the trove of what we got wasn’t nearly as interesting as what we didn’t get, specifically the Top Secret material and redacted portions of the sensitive ones. To begin digging into the pile, it’s unclear if there’s anything really “new” here which we didn’t already know. There was obviously potentially critical national security information hanging around where it shouldn’t be, but that’s just the status quo at this point. CNN has a fairly good summary of the first bits unearthed in this excavation, and pays particular attention to what may be yet to come, not from Clinton herself, but from those deepest inside her circle.” – Hot Air

Melania Trump said on CNN Monday that she has disagreed with ‘many things’ her husband has said or done on the campaign trail.” – The Blaze

The Louisiana House of Representatives is proposing to take a hatchet to the Department of Education in the final four months of the budget year, with cuts that the state’s education superintendent says would shutter almost every program in his agency.
