Trump Had Evangelicals at "Hello"

As Donald Trump began steamrolling his Republican competition earlier this year, some evangelical leaders grew concerned. And why not? The formerly pro-choice real estate developer and casino mogul turned GOP frontrunner who once boasted of his dating conquests and personal Vietnam war against sexually transmitted diseases had become a poster child for the notion that […]

The GOP's Other Convention Conflict: The 14th Amendment

The odds of a contested Republican convention rose sharply this week. The strong showing by Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) in the Wisconsin primary made frontrunner Donald Trump's task of securing a 1,237 delegate majority a much steeper climb.
