Washington (CNN) - Three Republican Senators who are considered possible contenders for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination are all thumbs down on a bipartisan budget compromise that would prevent another government shutdown if approved by Congress.
Marco Rubio of Florida, Rand Paul of Kentucky, and Ted Cruz of Texas are critical of the deal struck Tuesday between House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, last year's GOP vice presidential nominee, and his Senate counterpart, Democrat Patty Murray, that would set spending levels, reduce the deficit, and relieve some of the forced spending cuts known as sequestration.

And the Monmouth University/Asbury Park Press Poll, released Wednesday, also suggests that the Republican governor could turn New Jersey red in a presidential election for the first time in more than a quarter century.

In a series of closed-door meetings since August, handpicked members of the Republican National Committee have been meeting with party Chairman Reince Priebus in Washington to hash out details of a sweeping plan to condense the nominating calendar, severely punish primary and caucus states that upend the agreed-upon voting order and potentially move the party's national convention to earlier in the summer, with late June emerging as the ideal target date.FULL STORY
