For GOP "Insiders:" Which "Outsider" Is Worse? The Republican Establishment in Washington is now holding its nose and warming up to the real estate mogul, Donald Trump. The distinctly half-hearted endorsement is based on hatred for Senator Ted Cruz and his frequent attacks on the leadership of his own political party. Conservative intellectuals are caught between a hard-right crusader who doesn’t want to do business and a deal-maker who probably will. As the battle continues for the “heart of the Party,” the voters have yet to be heard from.
In Janesville, WI, Middle America meets the new American dream Janesville, Wisconsin is the hometown of Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan.
