(CNN) - Returning to New Hampshire for the first time since his failed 2012 presidential campaign, Texas Gov. Rick Perry said Friday he has learned "some really, really good humbling and frustrating lessons."
Perhaps the biggest among them, he said, was preparation.
(CNN) – The Democratic National Committee blasted Sen. Rand Paul on Friday for criticizing the President while on a foreign trip.
"America has a proud tradition of letting politics stop at the water’s edge, but Paul doesn’t think that tradition applies to him," Michael Czin, the DNC's press secretary, said in a memo to reporters. “Regardless of political party, we do not go abroad and slam our own because of policy differences.”
(CNN) – "It is cold."
That's what Mitt Romney said, letting out a slight chuckle after his former running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan, dumped a bucket of ice water on his head.
Washington (CNN) – It’s a “very real possibility” that individuals with the extremist group ISIS may have crossed into the United States at the southern border, Texas Gov. Rick Perry said Thursday, though he added he doesn’t have any evidence.
Because the border is insecure, Perry said that “individuals from ISIS or other terrorist states could be” taking advantage of the situation. “I think it's a very real possibility that they may have already used that,” he told an audience at the Heritage Foundation in Washington.
“We have no clear evidence of that,” he continued.
(CNN) – Texas Gov. Rick Perry is scheduled to be in court on Friday, but he won't be there. Instead, he'll be testing the waters for a possible presidential run.
Three days after being fingerprinted and having his mug shot taken following his indictment, Perry will begin a series of visits to critical presidential nominating states – a strong indication that the Texas Republican won't let felony charges get in the way of his political ambition.
(CNN) – With Alaska's U.S. Senate seat considered one of the most vulnerable Democratic seats this fall, both Republicans and Democrats have a lot at stake in Tuesday's GOP primary.
The winner of the crowded race will square off against incumbent Democratic Sen. Mark Begich in November. Republicans, who need a net win of six seats to retake control of the Senate, have focused on the contest in the traditionally red state of Alaska as a key turnover possibility
(CNN) – Asked if there was a general problem in the United States with the way police deal with young African-American men, Gov. Chris Christie argued people shouldn’t be quick “to make generalizations.”
“Whatever happened in Ferguson, we have a justice system in this country that will be able to make that judgment, and if there are people who need to be held accountable, I'm confident they will be,” the New Jersey Republican said in a response to a question by WNYC’s Matt Katz.
(CNN) – Rick Santorum is heading to Israel.
The former senator from Pennsylvania and 2012 presidential candidate leaves Sunday for a three-day trip with a delegation of conservative and religious leaders, according to his group, Patriot Voices.
(CNN) - Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush announced his opposition Thursday to an overwhelmingly popular proposal that would legalize medical marijuana in his state.
The Republican said "allowing large-scale, marijuana operations to take root across Florida, under the guise of using it for medicinal purposes, runs counter" to the state's efforts to boost tourism and a business-friendly environment.
