    WASHINGTON ROUNDUP 3rd Quarter, 2017 LeClavers Withdraws Kelly In a tough blow to the LeClavers Administration, the president’s nominee to the Supreme Court, Justice Jane Kelly, was withdrawn this evening. President LeClavers announced his decision to pull Justice Kelly’s name. “The shots taken at her by the Senate GOP were not only unfair- they were simply untrue,” declared LeClavers. “However, it is clear that this nomination, while qualified, has been caught up by the Senate Minority and has been the latest victim of partisan dysfunction on the Hill. It is a disservice and a disgrace to her, the nominee, to continue to subject her to these unprecedented, unwarranted attacks on her impeccable record and career accomplishments she has throughout her own illustrious career. That is why, today, I am formally announcing my intent to withdraw her nomination to serve on the Supreme Court.” Justice Kelly is the first supreme court nominee to withdrawn since Harriet Miers in 2005. Both Miers and Kelly were nominated by presidents coming off successful reelection bids. Now, President LeClavers will have to find a different nominee who can pass the Senate and eventually take the bench. Democrats Divide Over Baudin The battlelines are being drawn within the Democratic Party over President Harrison LeClavers’ nominee, Marc Baudin, for the U.S. Senate. While many Republicans have come forward in favor of Baudin, his nomination has brought about fierce opposition from many progressives who are breaking with the White House. And no clearer example of that split can be found than in New York where U.S. Senator Osiris Storm declared his opposition and Senator Hillary Edwards announced her support earlier today. Numerous other Democrats remain on the fence including Senator Ellen O’Brien of Wisconsin who highlighted Senator Baudin’s numerous differing positions from the mainstream Democratic Party. “While I will not oppose Senator Baudin's nomination on the merit of one policy that greatly differs from my own, I am however uncomfortable as to why President LeCleavers nominated a Vice President that holds views that are contrary to those that the party presently holds,” said O’Brien. Indeed, all the eyes of Washington are on the Baudin nomination as we draw closer to a final vote. GOP Elects New Chair U.S. Senator George Maynard of North Dakota was elected the Republican Party Chairman today. Chairman Maynard pledged to breathe new energy and change to the GOP after three straight losses in presidential elections and the disappointing 2014 midterms. “I hope to bring fresh leadership to our party's executive organization as we move forward into a crucial period in our nation's history… I intend to be a Chairman that embraces innovation and strengthening the bond between the many members of our party as we gear up to take back Congress next November.”

    The President takes the podium    "Thank you for coming here today. This is an important announcement, and one, I believe, that was absolutely necessary to have been made by myself personally. I would like to announce, unfortunately, the withdrawal of my nomination of Justice Jane L. Kelly to the Supreme Court of the United States. I believe firmly that she is superbly qualified to serve on our nation's court- her four years of judicial experience and her many years of experience as a lawyer, fighting for the rights of individuals and the accused, are something that I strongly agree with. The shots taken at her by the Senate GOP were not only unfair- they were simply untrue. However, it is clear that this nomination, while qualified, has been caught up by the Senate Minority and has been the latest victim of partisan dysfunction on the Hill. It is a disservice and a disgrace to her, the nominee, to continue to subject her to these unprecedented, unwarranted attacks on her impeccable record and career accomplishments she has throughout her own illustrious career. That is why, today, I am formally announcing my intent to withdraw her nomination to serve on the Supreme Court. I look forward to her continuing to provide excellent service to our country over the coming years as she serves this country proudly, on the 8th Circuit.

    PR #1 - Maynard Elected Chairman of the RNC Washington D.C. - North Dakota Senator George Maynard has been elected Chairman of the Republican National Committee following the resignation of Wyoming Senator Bob Smith. Senator Maynard was elected unanimously by his colleagues to lead the RNC into the 2018 Midterms. Senator Maynard has already begun the process of reshaping the RNC apparatus and highlighted his goals to members of the press following his ascension to the top job within the organization. Senator Maynard's statement can be read below: "I am honored to have been elected by my colleagues unanimously to serve as the next Chairman of the Republican National Committee. I hope to bring fresh leadership to our party's executive organization as we move forward into a crucial period in our nation's history. The GOP is the only defense against the left-wing government of President LeClavers and Congressional Democrats. I will see to it that the RNC is ready to stand with Americans across the country who are fed up with the extreme liberal agenda of Democrats in Washington. I intend to be a Chairman that embraces innovation and strengthening the bond between the many members of our party as we gear up to take back Congress next November. Together, as a united Republican Party, we can defeat the agenda of the elites. I'm excited to get to work."
