One Baby to Another
In recent comments, presidential candidate Donald Trump referred to Sen. Ted Cruz as a “little baby” in comparison to many people he knows. This was yet another attack on Cruz from Trump, who has also called Cruz a “basket case” and “unstable”, reports CNN. Although Trump has sent attacks to nearly every other presidential candidate, none have received nearly the attacks that Cruz has from Trump.
Mentor and Apprentice Meet Again
For the first time in a while, Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio have scheduled a time to sit and talk, reports the New York Times. After former Gov. Bush’s campaign came to an end, many have been asking who he will endorse for president.

In a swift and decisive mode, the Senate Republican leadership has confirmed that they will not hold hearings on any person nominated by President Obama to fill the vacancy of the open Supreme Court Justice seat. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell stated that the decision needed to be made by the next president and not the current president. A CNN article noted that the White House and the rest of Democrats are outraged with the recent decision to bar hearings for a nomination.
