The political fallout from Trump's "grope and brag" Across the country, Republicans up for re-election are caught between voters who helped nominate Donald Trump and those who can't stand him. House Speaker Paul Ryan has liberated GOP members from the mandate to support their nominee for the White House. Donald Trump says, " the shackles are off " and he's threatening retaliation in what's become a war within his own party. The possible consequences include: a victory for Hillary Clinton; a loss of Republican power on Capitol Hill and widespread public alienation.
Is Marco Rubio the New Face of the Old GOP? In 1998, Marco Rubio was a city commissioner in West Miami. In 2000, he was elected to Florida's House of Representatives. Just six years after that, he became the second youngest House Speaker ever — and the first Cuban-American to hold that position. Now he's a 44-year-old Senator in his first term who insists he's fully prepared for the White House. Some Republicans call him their party's Obama — and they don't mean it kindly. Others call him their best chance of heading off Donald Trump. We hear about the meteoric rise of a Cuban-American in Florida, his brief term in Washington and what happened between him and Jeb Bush. In 1996, Marco Rubio worked on Bob Dole's presidential bid in Miami-Dade County. Photo: Marco Rubio campaign
