Media Review – Donald Trump
17 September 2015
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, once considered a co-frontrunner for the Republican presidential nomination, announced Monday that he was quitting the contest. His withdrawal came only 70 days after he formally joined the campaign in early July. Walker’s three-minute statement mirrored his campaign—brief and lacking in substance. He gave little explanation for his pullout, which follows a plunge in national polls of likely Republican voters, from 13 percent to an asterisk (i.e., zero), a decline that coincided with his appearances in two televised debates, August 6 and September 16, to dismal reviews: here.

MCCARTHY’S WITHDRAWAL THROWS GOP INTO CHAOS “House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) sparked shock, tears and chaos in the GOP Thursday by declaring he was withdrawing his name from the election to replace House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), just moments before the party was supposed to vote.” McCarthy told The Wall Street Journal he had decided not to run because he wasn’t sure he’d have the votes he needed, but the last-minute change of heart still caused some conservative activists to speculate about controversial affair allegations. And here’s why Paul Ryan is adamant about not running for the job, despite building pressure. [Michael McAuliff, Sam Levine and Ryan Grim, HuffPost]
Representative Kevin McCarthy, the number two Republican in the US House of Representatives, said Thursday morning he was withdrawing as a candidate to succeed John Boehner as speaker of the house. The surprise announcement, made to a closed-door caucus of Republicans that was preparing to nominate McCarthy for the top job, came less than two weeks after Boehner announced his resignation, effective October 30. The decision leaves completely uncertain the race to replace Boehner as the third-highest official of the US government, second in the line of succession to the presidency. It lays bare a deepening political crisis of the Republican Party, not only in Congress, but also in the initial months of the 2016 presidential campaign: here.
SHELDON ADELSON REVEALED TO BE MYSTERIOUS PAPER BUYER “Sheldon Adelson, a billionaire casino magnate and Republican power broker who spent more than $100 million in the last election cycle, is behind the secret purchase of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, according to the newspaper … The purchase gives Adelson control over Nevada’s largest media outlet and raises questions about whether the newsroom will retain editorial independence when covering the gaming industry and politics.” [Michael Calderone, HuffPost]
