BOSTON — Mitt Romney’s shadow looms over a Republican Party in disarray.
The face of the GOP for much of the last year, the failed presidential candidate has been a virtual ghost since his defeat Nov. 6. He has quietly weathered the fallout of the campaign from the seclusion of his Southern California home, emerging only momentarily for a private lunch at the White House with President Barack Obama on Thursday.
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama rolled to re-election Tuesday night, vanquishing former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and winning four more years in office despite a weak economy that plagued his first term and put a crimp in the middle class dreams of millions.
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama won the reliably Democratic Northeast, and Republican Mitt Romney secured his conservative base Tuesday night in a duel for the White House shadowed by a weak economy and high unemployment.
WILLISTON — The Keystone XL pipeline, a point of contention during the presidential campaign, will likely move forward regardless of who is elected Tuesday, say current and former leaders from both parties.
WASHINGTON — Still neck-and-neck after all these months, Barack Obama and Mitt Romney head into their third and final debate with each man eager to project an aura of personal strength and leadership while raising doubts about the steadiness and foreign policy credentials of the other guy.
HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. — An aggressive President Barack Obama ripped into Mitt Romney’s economic blueprint in a town hall style debate Tuesday night, accusing his rival of favoring only a “one-point plan” to help the rich at the expense of the middle class.

DENVER — In a showdown at close quarters, President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney sparred aggressively in their first campaign debate Wednesday night over taxes, deficits and strong steps needed to create jobs in a sputtering national economy. “The status quo is not going to cut it,” declared the challenger.
As the campaign enters its final month, President Obama is enjoying more than just a lead in most polls. He’s also enjoying Republican insiders slamming Mitt Romney for various faults, real and perceived, while potentially huge problems for the president — the investigation into what happened at the Libyan consulate attack, a devastating blow suffered by U.S. forces in Afghanistan and Obama’s lack of a plan to deal with the coming entitlement crisis, to name just three — go largely undiscussed in much of the press.
FARGO — Heidi Heitkamp is leading Rep. Rick Berg by 4 percentage points in the North Dakota Senate race, though that is still within the margin of error in the newly released poll commissioned by the North Dakota Democratic-Nonpartisan League Party.
Mitt Romney has been duly criticized for what we’ll call “The 47 Percent Remark,” his dismissive distancing of himself from close to half of the American people, who, he says, “are dependent upon government, who believe they are victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to take care of them. ...”
