Democratic congresswoman Joyce Beatty had everyone doing double-takes Thursday when she walked out onto the stage at the Democratic National Convention wearing what looked like the same dress Melania Trump wore when she addressed the Republicans.
The Democratic National Convention’s over and the presidential election remains too close to call. Hillary Clinton needs to rally traditional Democrats and young voters. Donald Trump must get Republicans to accept him, while keeping his angry army.
A computer service used by the campaign of Hillary Clinton was hacked as part of a broader breach of the Democratic National Committee, an intrusion for which the Russian government is the leading suspect, the campaign said Friday.
The Democratic presidential nominee – who joked that she stayed up late after the Democratic National Convention and was running on a caffeine infusion – used a rally here to open the general election, taking direct aim at Republican rival Donald Trump’s appeal to working-class voters and his promise to bring jobs back to communities still struggling to recover from the economic downturn.
Accepting the Democratic Party’s nomination, she tried to do what her husband did for her in his own address Tuesday night – humanize herself by telling personal stories and showing glimmers of her personality. She shared an often-not seen personal side, talking about her late mother, her daughter and grandchildren. And she rallied the crowd with details from her broad policy portfolio.
Supporters from Kansas and Missouri at the Democratic National Convention emerged from their four days of political speeches with new confidence that they had won over Bernie Sanders backers and launched their candidate in better shape to tackle Donald Trump.
Hillary Clinton accepted the Democratic nomination for president Thursday night with “humility, determination and boundless confidence in America’s promise,” saying “America is once again at a moment of reckoning.”
With a little help from Katy Perry, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Carole King, a slew of other celebrity friends — and daughter Chelsea Clinton — Hillary Clinton became the first woman to become a major party’s presidential nominee. Oh, and “God,” — aka Morgan Freeman, was there in spirit, too.
A group of officials sent letters Wednesday to civic groups in Kansas City, asking to discuss property tax abatements. Meanwhile, a group of petitioners wants to reform economic development incentives through a public vote.
Less than a week before the Republican primary in Kansas’ 1st Congressional District, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has thrown its support behind the challenger, physician Roger Marshall, in his bid to defeat Rep. Tim Huelskamp. It’s the only case in the country where the chamber is actively opposing the incumbent.
A Shawnee County judge has ruled that 17,500 voters can participate in state and local races as well as federal ones in Tuesday’s Kansas primary election. The state had approved a rule saying people could vote only in federal elections – not state and local ones – if they registered at DMV offices but failed to provide proof of citizenship as required by Kansas law.
What precisely is her campaign about? Why is she running in the first place? Like most dynastic candidates (most famously Ted Kennedy in 1979), she really doesn’t know. She seeks the office because, well, it’s the next — the final — step on the ladder.
Fresh off a spirited convention, Hillary Clinton told prospective voters Friday they face a "stark choice" in November and pressed ahead with the scalding rhetoric against her Republican rival that marked many of the speeches in Philadelphia. Another distraction arose, however, as her aides acknowledged that a hacking attack that exposed Democratic Party emails also reached into a computer system used by her own campaign.
