Leonard Pitts Jr.: For GOP, defeat is not enough

This lavish disgust has nothing, absolutely zilch, to do with conservative ideology. It has everything to do with the party’s willing and expedient embrace of crazy.


Trump opens hotel with a media circus – but few Washington VIPs

The grand opening of Donald Trump’s luxury hotel in Washington on Wednesday was like no other ribbon-cutting of its kind. There was press in from as far away as Estonia. CNN’s Dana Bash was there, behind a phalanx of TV cameras that your average hotel publicist would trade her Chanel bag for.


Review of all S-R endorsements

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump did not accept our invitation for an endorsement interview, but dozens of other candidates and proponents of ballot measures did, from early June to early October. We thank them all. We have finished publishing endorsements, and those can be read at our website (see accompanying information box). The following is a quick review of endorsements in each race. Agree or disagree, but please vote.


Wisconsin clerk feared early voting site helping Democrats

Newly released emails show Green Bay’s city clerk refused to set up an early voting site on the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay campus in part because she feared the site would help Democrats.


Ex-KKK Grand Wizard David Duke to debate at historically black college

Former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard and current Louisiana Senate candidate David Duke will participate in a debate at historically black Dillard University.


Robert J. Samuelson: Election calls for ticket-splitting

Not only may one party be unable to push them through Congress; neither party may want to act alone, because that implies accepting all the blame for unpopular policies.


Leonard Pitts Jr.: Trump whines, but he’s not the victim

Who has ever been more in need of lectures about personal responsibility than the Republican candidate for president?

Newly confident and buoyant in the polls, Hillary Clinton is looking past Donald Trump while widening her mission to include helping Democrats seize the Senate and chip away at the Republican-controlled House.


Eric Trump says his father will accept election results – ‘if they’re fair’

Eric Trump, the second son of Donald Trump, cast his father as the victim of a smear campaign when asked to respond to numerous new allegations from women, who have said the Republican presidential nominee made sexual advances toward them against their will over the past three decades.


Garrison Keillor: From Trump Tower to Broken Bow

He should pick up his traps and move to Nebraska. He is leading in Nebraska, about 2-to-1. There are wonderful warmhearted people there who love and admire him, so he would fit right in.
