Republican presidential candidate and former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley has been campaigning officially for a seat in the Oval Office for over a year, leaving her as the sole remaining candidate running against former President Donald Trump for the GOP's nomination. Haley, on the other hand, has repeatedly taken shots at her 77-year-old rival for his age, mental acuity, and policy choices. The longer she stays in the race and continues bashing her former boss, her chances of getting tapped to become his possible vice president could dwindle.

If Biden drops from the presidential race, it would likely lead to a contested convention in August. AdvertisementFor years, Democratic President Joe Biden has been plagued with critiques about his old age and perceived cognitive skills. With no candidate having amassed a majority of the nation's delegates, the Democratic presidential nominee was decided at the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago, where anti-war protesters angrily demonstrated outside. AdvertisementMost of the state delegates at the convention voted for Humphrey, leading him to win the Democratic Party's nomination. Unless Biden stuns the party and suddenly drops out, the current 81-year-old president is on a fast track to obtaining the Democratic presidential nomination.

He said the idea of usurping the nomination from Biden and then winning is "certifiably insane." AdvertisementThe chairman of the Democratic National Committee said the idea of replacing President Joe Biden as the party's candidate and winning the election in November is "certifiably crazy actually." Nevertheless, Super Tuesday, where roughly a third of the nation's Democratic delegates will be doled out, is fast approaching. That hasn't happened, though, since Democratic President Lyndon B. Johnson said he wouldn't run for reelection in 1968 after winning the New Hampshire primary in late March of that year. The 1968 contested convention was chaotic — even dangerous at times — and the Democratic candidate chosen, Vice President Hubert Humphrey, lost in November by 110 electoral votes.

Read previewAfter four months of failed votes, retirements, and shrinking the party's already-narrow majority, House Republicans are feeling the harsh effects of ousting then-Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy from his leadership role in October 2023. Before obtaining the speakership, his highest leadership experience came from his nearly three years as the vice chair of the House Republican Conference, where he had scant experience raising money and campaigning for other Republicans. Because of this narrower majority, Johnson has an increasingly difficult job getting House Republicans to vote in lockstep — practically the only way the conference can pass legislation without relying on Democratic votes. McCarthy also had ample experience fundraising and propping up trailing candidates, attributes that could've helped New York special election candidate Mazi Pilip on Tuesday. AdvertisementOr as one House Republican put it bluntly earlier in February: "Getting rid of Speaker McCarthy has officially turned into an unmitigated disaster."

Just 1 in 3 voters are confident in Joe Biden's physical and mental faculties, per a new poll. But Biden's support overall is roughly the same as it was in 2020. AdvertisementA new poll from Monmouth University shows that just 1 in 3 voters are confident in President Joe Biden's physical and mental faculties, though support for the 2024 presidential candidate is around the same as from 2020. Conducted between February 8 to 12 with 902 US adults, the poll found that 32% of respondents felt confident in the 81-year-old Biden's "mental & physical stamina." Despite the waning public confidence in Biden's mental and physical strength, the poll found that support for the Democratic candidate remains about the same as in 2020 when he first faced off against Trump for president.

Read previewThe head of Oklahoma's Board of Education celebrated the departure of a local elementary school principal who resigned recently after their school received hate-induced bomb threats. The Western Heights School District board accepted the resignation of Shane Murnan, the former principal at John Glenn Elementary School, on Monday — a little over five months after beginning the position. As NBC News reported, publicizing Murnan's hobby quickly led to Murnan and the school district receiving bomb threats, leading to Murnan's voluntary departure. "Drag queens do not belong in Oklahoma schools," Walters tweeted. Walters' celebratory tweet on Wednesday wasn't the first time he's weighed in online about Murnan's resignation.

Democratic former Rep. Tom Suozzi won Tuesday night's special election in New York. As a result, Trump took to Truth Social to insult the GOP's losing candidate, Mazi Pilip. AdvertisementFormer President Donald Trump railed against the GOP's losing candidate in New York's 3rd Congressional District's special election on Tuesday, attributing her loss to not having supported him enough. Democratic former Rep. Tom Suozzi bested Republican candidate Mazi Pilip on Tuesday by just under 8 percentage points, surpassing expectations set from prior polling amid a heavy New York snowstorm. Trump wrote, referring to Pilip being registered to vote as a Democrat for over a decade when chosen as the GOP's nominee.

Republicans in the House of Representatives successfully —but just barely — voted to impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on Tuesday. Put bluntly, Mayorkas' impeachment is a classic case of "performance politics." After the impeachment vote succeeded on Tuesday, Green told Politico the party's more than willing to keep impeaching DHS secretaries until someone does the job to its liking. "If that person doesn't do his job well, we will impeach his ass too," he said.

Read previewAs voters in New York's 3rd Congressional District cast their votes in Tuesday's special election, heavy snowfall across the region may play a key role in downsizing the Republican Party's already narrow House majority. In the weeks leading up to the special election, polling indicated that Suozzi appeared to possess a 4 percentage point advantage over Pilip. Politico reported on February 10 that Suozzi, at the time, possessed a lead in reported early votes.

Nikki Haley was the only major presidential candidate to appear on the state's GOP primary ballot. AdvertisementDespite being the only currently running major candidate on the official state-run Republican presidential primary in Nevada, former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley lost to the option "None of These Candidates." Importantly, if a candidate chooses to be apart of the state-run primary, the Nevada GOP said they will not be permitted to also caucus on February 8. For reasons not entirely clear, Haley signed up to be a part of the state-run primary in 2023, even though she could not win any delegates from it. As former President Donald Trump, the leading GOP candidate in the race, is signed up for caucus, Haley was the only major candidate on the Nevada primary's ballot.

As House Republicans failed Tuesday evening in a vote to impeach Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas, two staunch conservative representatives from Texas pushed back against former President Donald Trump's claims that reforming the US-Mexico border is easy. "We're not going to just pass the buck and say that, 'Oh, any president could walk in and secure the border,'" Roy said. "I saw former President Trump make that allegation earlier today on one of his social media posts. But his attempts to halt illegal immigration via a border wall and other means didn't work. "Why didn't Trump just shut down the border if you just think we don't need any changes to law?"

One Republican said it was the "worst screwing" in the Senate since a recently revealed sex tape. "This bill is the worst screwing in the Senate since that Dem staffer filmed his porno on Klobuchar's desk," Collins wrote, comparing it to a recently unearthed video from December 2018 that shows a former Senate staffer having sex with another man where the senator from Minnesota typically sits. If passed, the nearly 300-page border bill would give the Department of Homeland Security the power to close down the border and halt further movement into the country if the average of immigrants exceeds certain numbers. House Majority Leader Steve Scalise promised Sunday evening the legislation would never even receive a vote on the House floor. And Speaker of the House Mike Johnson said, "If this bill reaches the House, it will be dead on arrival."

As Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz continues to circulate a drafted resolution saying former President Donald Trump didn't "engage in insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or give aid or comfort to the enemies thereof," retired DC Metropolitan Police Officer Michael Fanone isn't surprised. "It's another example of Matt Gaetz's endless ass-kissing campaign to ingratiate himself with Donald Trump," he told Business Insider Friday morning. In late January, the Daily Mail reported Gaetz's office had begun sending emails of the resolution to members of the House who've endorsed Trump's reelection campaign. Gaetz has yet to file the resolution, but Politico reported that same day it would likely be coming soon. Ultimately, he said, "I feel betrayed" by Trump supporters and legislators he said are operating out of their self-interests.
