CaptureNOVI) — Lt. Gov. Brian CALLEY on Saturday survived an aggressive challenge from the political right by crushing Tea Party organizer Wes NAKAGIRI at the Michigan Republican Party (MRP) convention by nearly two to one, 1,345 to 716, according to the last number provided by MIRS.

Prior to today’s vote, Calley supporters told MIRS they saw anything better than 55 to 60 percent of the delegates’ vote as being a ringing success. The last numbers to be released shows Calley receiving 65 percent of the vote.

Frum_CrashingThePartyFor the six years since President George W. Bush left office, his party has turned its back on him. Bush spoke at neither the 2008 nor the 2012 Republican National Convention. When aspiring successors to his former office mentioned him at all during the primary debates, they cited his legacy as something to avoid repeating. Yet Bush may prove much harder to ignore at the party’s next convention: one of the most mentioned possibilities for the 2016 Republican presidential nominee is the ex-president’s brother, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush.

101761970-490495517.530x298Many businesses said Obamacare is jacking up their employee health coverage costs, and they expect it to do so even more next year, two new surveys of businesses by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York have found.

As a result, consumers in the areas covered by the bank could be paying more next year—and some workers at the firms might need to look for a new job, the surveys found.

The median respondent to the N.Y. Fed surveys expects health coverage costs to jump by 10 percent next year, after seeing a similar percentage increase last year.

ED-AS551A_edp08_G_20140814190209As political comedowns go, there may be few to compare to the humbling of Tom Steyer. Six months after the climate activist roared on the national political scene vowing $100 million to impose his agenda on this fall’s midterms, it would appear that this billionaire don’t hunt.

Remember the liberal huzzahs that greeted the February pledge? The New York TimesNYT +0.69% gave Mr. Steyer the front page, heralding a coming “hard-edge campaign of attack ads” that would pressure officials to “enact climate change measures” and persuade voters to back a climate agenda. Democrats hailed him as their new power broker, crowing about a war chest that could rival the Koch brothers and even up the midterm election odds. Environmentalists welcomed a white knight who would finally align the party and public behind their priorities.

140813_roy_boehner2_gtyWhen it comes to Obamacare and the 2014 midterms, the GOP appears to have a fairly simple strategy: Keep the target on the other guys. After all, the president’s health law is persistently unpopular, leading many Republicans to conclude that there’s more risk than reward in telling voters what they’d do differently. The “prevent defense” will probably work this time, but it won’t work forever.

According to the Congressional Budget Office, in 2016 there will be 34 million U.S. residents on Obamacare-sponsored health insurance: 22 million on the law’s health insurance exchanges, and 12 million enrolled in its expansion of Medicaid. It’s certainly possible that the CBO’s estimates are too high. And not all of those 34 million people will have been previously uninsured. But the 2016 election is shaping up ominously for the GOP.
