Where's the humanity?
Failure to directly address concerns leads to weak support. Races in Nevada, Arizona, Texas and Florida, states with growing Hispanic populations, are bungled.
Trump lover Duncan Hunter smears opponent over his name — and gets nothing right.
California Republican Representative Duncan Hunter, who is facing a 48-page federal indictment for campaign fraud, is so afraid of losing his cushy seat in the House of Representatives to Democrat Ammar Campa-Najjar that he is resorting to conspiracy theories.

Sen. Flake Calls for Delay of Kavanaugh Senate Floor Vote
Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), who has a deciding vote, said he would not support final confirmation until the F.B.I. investigates accusations of sexual assault against Brett Kavanaugh.
"I have been speaking with a number of people on the other side," Flake said to the Senate Judiciary Committee. "We've had conversations ongoing for a while with regard to making sure that we do due diligence here. I think it would be proper to delay the floor vote for up to, but not more than, one week, in order for the FBI to do an investigation limited in time and scope to the current allegations that are there. And limited in time to no more than one week.
"I will vote to advance the bill to the floor with that understanding."
The committee voted to send the Kavanaugh nomination to the floor, 11-10.
But, it's unclear if Republican leaders — or President Trump — will support Flake's call for the investigation.
UPDATE: 1:47 p.m. ET
The Senate Judiciary Committee vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh scheduled for 1:30 p.m. ET has not yet occurred.
According to CNN, discussions are taking place outside of the hearing room about a potential FBI investigation into Ford's claims, and no more than a week delay for the nomination vote.
Despite the explosive testimony of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford against President Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Thursday, and the fact there hasn't been an FBI investigation into her claims of sexual assault, Republicans are steps closer to getting him confirmed.
Misogyny in full force.
Kevin Jackson, a Black Fox News contributor, was fired for his Twitter comments during the hearings about the women who accused Kavanaugh of assault and misconduct.
"#ChristineBlaseyFord academic problems came from her PROMISCUITY!" he wrote on Twitter during the Senate appearance. "Dang girl stop opening your legs and OPEN A BOOK!"
Democratic Senators call for investigations and increased concern over Kavanaugh being fit to serve; Republicans sat on the story for days and pressured Ford.
Deborah Ramirez has come forward detailing an instance of alleged sexual misconduct by Brett Kavanaugh, which dates to the 1983-84 academic year, when Kavanaugh was a freshman at Yale University.
Ramirez is now the second woman to publicly accuse President Trump's Supreme Court justice nominee of sexual misconduct. The first public allegation was made by Christine Blasey Ford.
To voters: You can make sure that white nationalists don't feel empowered to march in Charlottesville in the middle of the day.

If the Mexican government isn't going to pay for it, as he promised, shouldn't he go south to shut down their government?
President Trump has alluded to doing whatever it takes to get Democrats to jump on board with his plan for immigration reform.
Trump made the campaign promise to his anti-immigrant base: "I'll have Mexico pay for that wall."
But now that it's apparent that was an empty promise and midterm elections are right around the corner, he's threatening to infringe upon the lives of U.S. residents by closing the government.
