DES MOINES, Iowa—Nikki Haley is trying to emphasize her own political identity while still appealing to former President Donald Trump’s deeply loyal supporters as she lays the groundwork for a possible 2024 presidential bid. A critic of Mr. Trump before becoming his United Nations ambassador for two years, Ms. Haley will on Thursday evening headline the Republican Party of Iowa’s biggest gathering of the year. Her Lincoln Dinner appearance, a high-profile stop in the state that is expected to host the first GOP presidential nomination balloting in 2024, will give the former South Carolina governor a chance to both introduce herself to activists and offer contrition to supporters of Mr. Trump that she may have offended in the past. Earlier this year, Ms. Haley told Republican National Committee members that Mr. Trump would be “judged harshly by history” for his behavior after November’s election. Her back and forth regarding the former president has left some questioning Ms. Haley’s political compass.

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa—Nikki Haley criticized Democratic-controlled Washington on Thursday evening as she outlined her vision for the Republican Party and banked political favors in a key state ahead of a possible 2024 presidential bid. A critic of former President Donald Trump before becoming his United Nations ambassador for two years, Ms. Haley headlined the Republican Party of Iowa’s biggest gathering of the year. Her speech to about 500 people, which received a standing ovation at its conclusion, focused more on the current president than his predecessor. “Joe Biden has been a gift to every country that hates America and wants to hurt us. He’s the polar opposite of Donald Trump,” she said.

Mike Pence must soon decide whether to hit back at former President Donald Trump. Thursday night might finally be the night former Vice President Mike Pence — a man with his own 2024 presidential ambitions — starts striking back at Donald Trump, who almost got him killed six months ago. He stood by Trump through the January 6 attack on the US Capitol, after Trump directed a riotous mob, shouting "Hang Mike Pence! Some Republicans familiar with both Trump and Pence are skeptical he will ever fully break from Trump. Tom LoBianco is a Washington correspondent for Insider and author of the Mike Pence biography, "Piety & Power: Mike Pence and the Taking of the White House."

REUTERS/Leah Millis/File PhotoJune 23 (Reuters) - A U.S. federal judge on Wednesday harshly criticized Republican lawmakers for downplaying the deadly Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, questioning "what planet" they are living on. Hundreds of supporters of then-President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol that day in a failed attempt to stop Congress from certifying Democrat Joe Biden's presidential election victory. The violence left five dead, including a Capitol Police officer, and more than 480 people have been arrested on charges linked to the attack. "It was not an accident that it turned violent," he said of the Capitol attack. "I went there to support and show support for President Trump, and I’m ashamed that it became a savage display of violence that day," Morgan-Lloyd said during the court hearing.

REUTERS/Evelyn HocksteinASHBURN, Virginia, June 23 (Reuters) - The school board of Virginia's wealthy Loudoun County had planned to hold a routine meeting to close out the school year. Some signs read, "Education not indoctrination" and "You don't end racism by teaching it." Cobb County, an affluent, predominately white suburb northeast of Atlanta, soon followed with its own resolution banning the teaching of CRT. “What supports white supremacy more than making rules to say you can’t talk about racism or white supremacy?” he said.

Live Live Updates: Harris to Visit Southern Border Amid Republican Criticism Vice President Kamala Harris will travel to El Paso on Friday with Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro N. Mayorkas. President Biden is set to deliver remarks on gun violence as homicides rise in some cities, raising concerns about efforts to overhaul policing. The visit will come just days before former President Donald J. Trump is set to visit the border with a group of House Republicans and Gov. While she said no one likes the conservatorship, she does not expect any push by the Biden administration to end it anytime soon. Mr. Biden dispatched aides to Capitol Hill on Tuesday for discussions that his press secretary, Jen Psaki, said yielded progress.

U.S. Representative John Curtis (R-UT) speaks at the Utah County Republican Party Lincoln Day Dinner, in Provo, Utah, U.S. February 16, 2018. Led by Representative John Curtis of Utah, the Conservative Climate Caucus includes representatives from every committee in the House with jurisdiction over climate policy. Some Republicans, however, have downplayed the severity of the climate change issue while others have branded it a hoax. Conservatives are also organizing at a grass-roots level to promote what they say are private-sector solutions to climate change. Earlier this month the American Conservation Coalition, held what it billed as the country’s first conservative climate rally in Miami.

Twenty-one senators, led by Rob Portman of Ohio, a Republican, announced a new outline agreement for an infrastructure package last week. But despite the senators’ insistence, these arrangements do not actually avoid extractive charges on residents. Chief among these schemes that Republicans have identified are so-called user fees, like road tolls and a new fee on vehicle miles traveled. The White House rejected such proposals as violating its own tax pledge: a promise not to increase taxes on families earning under $400,000 annually. As President Biden observed, “If everything is paid for by a user fee, the burden falls on working-class folks, who are having trouble.”

At the moment, the Democratic Party controls the Senate, but only by the thinnest of margins. It faces a Republican Party that could retake control with the slightest diminution of Democratic voting strength. This Republican Party has shown itself willing, if empowered, to stymie a nomination—any nomination—by a Democratic president until such time that a Republican can recapture the White House. [Justice Breyer] saw up close the debacle of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s denouement. Surely he wants to guarantee that his legacy will be free of the awful stain that taints Ginsburg’s reputation.

Barack Obama said he backed Sen. Joe Manchin's voting reform bill compromises. Manchin suggested ideas to overcome GOP opposition to a bill defending voting rights. Former President Barack Obama said he supports a compromise deal proposed by Sen. Joe Manchin to defend voting rights. Obama said that Manchin's proposal was one of the only viable ways to combat a state-by-state voting suppression drive by the Republican Party. A comprehensive Democratic bill defending voter rights, the For the People Act, is expected to be blocked by Republicans when its brought to the Senate this week.

"Republican legislatures are making it harder to vote early, harder to vote by mail, harder to vote after work.

The John Lewis Act would restore provisions of the Voting Rights Act (Sections 4 and 5) that were effectively invalidated by the 2013 case Shelby County v. Holder. When enacted in 1965, these provisions identified certain parts of the country and put their voting systems under a regime of federal control. These areas had to submit voting changes to the federal government, which had the power to block a proposal if it would diminish minority voter power. In 1890, Abraham Lincoln’s Republican Party withdrew support for a Federal Elections Bill, which signaled Congress’s abandonment of its commitment to protect Black voting rights in the South. When Congress finally enacted the Voting Rights Act, it required sending federal officials into parts of the South, as Justice Holmes anticipated, to take over the voter registration process.

REUTERS/Cheriss May/File PhotoWASHINGTON, June 20 (Reuters) - The fundraising arm of the Republican Party raised less money in May than its Democratic counterpart but spent more, shelling out millions on efforts to win back Congress, as well as $175,900 at former President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort. Disclosures filed on Sunday with the Federal Election Commission showed the Republican National Committee raised $11.1 million last month, just below the $12.1 million raised by the Democratic National Committee. The RNC spent nearly $23 million during the month, more than twice what it raised, transferring $10 million to party committees that support candidates as the party prepares for next year's congressional elections. Democrats have narrow majorities in the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives, and losing control of either in the November 2022 contests would be a blow to Democratic President Joe Biden's agenda. A Republican Party spokesperson said the $175,900 spent at Trump's Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida, was to pay for the resort hosting part of an April retreat for Republican donors.

Iran's next president, Ebrahim Raisi, is a hard-liner accused of involvement in mass executions. Raisi supports reviving the 2015 nuclear deal but could cause headaches for Biden on other issues. Raisi, Iran's judiciary chief and a protégé of Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, is poised to be the most hard-line president the country has seen in years and could cause major headaches for Biden. Engaging with Raisi's government on any level could generate domestic criticism for Biden among hawkish Republicans who oppose the 2015 nuclear deal, and may lead to awkwardness with Israel — America's top ally in the Middle East. "However, we can neither put all the blame for Raisi's victory on Trump nor for emboldening hard-liners in Iran," she added.

This includes engaging the public more, partnering with corporations and leaning on the Justice Department to challenge some state laws. According to Politico:“Democrats are preparing to vote on a scaled-down guns bill — most likely a curtailed plan to boost background checks for firearm buyers. First, the obvious: Even though Democrats have control of the House and Senate, not everyone in this caucus is fully committed to a liberal policy agenda. Furthermore, we are barreling toward midterm elections in which Republicans are optimistic about winning back the House and possibly the Senate. They are rushing to write voter restrictions that also give them more say over how results are verified.

All of this contributes to the political environment Michigan Republicans must weigh as they decide whether to seek their party’s nomination for governor in 2022. “Michigan and national Republicans’ repeated failures to recruit a viable candidate for governor is no accident,” Rodericka Applewhaite, a spokesperson for the Michigan Democratic Party, said. Two other top Republicans, former Rep. Candice Miller and state Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey, also have said they’re not interested.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, listens during a U.S. Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee hearing in Washington, U.S., March 18, 2021. Tshibaka, the former state administration commissioner, launched her campaign in March with a vow to defeat Murkowski in the 2022 election and has already enlisted the help of former Trump advisers. "I am honored and grateful to have the support of the 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump," Tshibaka tweeted. Murkowski voted to convict Trump of inciting the deadly Jan. 6 Capitol riot, in which his supporters attacked Congress in an effort to stop certification of the 2020 election. The Alaska Republican Party later censured Murkowski and pledged to recruit a challenger to oppose her.
