House Overview|By David Wasserman, October 9, 2015

Up until two weeks ago, the drama and larger-than-life personalities of the 2016 presidential race rendered the House an afterthought. It took a looming government funding/debt ceiling showdown and Speaker John Boehner's resignation to bring the chaos within the House GOP to the foreground, and the ongoing struggle reflects the larger, complex identity crisis within the party as a whole.

Indiana House|By David Wasserman, September 18, 2015

Marlin Stutzman (IN-03) and Todd Young (IN-09) to run for an open Senate seat, there are spirited Republican primaries underway for both their House seats.

Kirkpatrick's decision to run for Senate makes this northern Arizona seat one of Republicans' best pickup opportunities. But Democrats are optimistic that their latest entry, former state Sen. Tom O'Halleran, has the unique nonpartisan profile it will take to win this Romney-won seat. O'Halleran, a former Republican, narrowly lost a race for state senate as an independent in 2014.
