We hope you’re having a great day wherever you are and that the news we dig up for you this morning helps you navigate the day more efficiently!
It’s a busy world out there, and you don’t have a ton of free time to be doing Internet searches for the most important items of the day… lucky for you, we do. We drink gallons of coffee in an effort to stay awake long enough to scour the far reaches of the world wide web in an effort to bring you the most important, useful and useless information every single day.
So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading, Monday, March 7, 2016.
A coalition of conservatives from Ohio, Florida and Illinois have come together to name a “conservative unity” candidate… and his name is [score]Ted Cruz[/score] (R-TX).
Remember when Donald Trump held a rally to raise money for veterans? It seems that the veterans still haven’t gotten their money and no one can figure out where all that money went.
Super Saturday was a toss-up between Ted Cruz and Donald Trump – but Cruz came away with more delegates after Trump barely won in Kentucky and Louisiana, while Cruz took almost half the vote in Kansas and Maine. The Super Saturday results also seem to indicate that Ted Cruz is just starting to pick up steam … and that should have all of the other candidates very worried.
Ted Cruz also won the CPAC 2016 straw poll with 40% of the vote. Senator [score]Marco Rubio[/score] took 2nd with 30%, Donald Trump came in 3rd with 15%, and John Kasich brought up the rear with about 8% of the vote from CPAC attendees.

Something else happened with the campaign on Sunday when CNN’s Manu Raju reported some interesting comments from the Cruz camp.

Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) didn’t have a great day on Saturday and now Donald Trump says Rubio should get out of the race. Also, it sure sounds like Rubio doesn’t understand how the delegate math works in a primary.
The New York Times wonders if Donald Trump is actually doing us a favor… by showing us how authoritarianism can seduce a nation.
Senator [score]Rand Paul[/score] (R-KY) will not be making an endorsement in the GOP Primary.
Why I can’t support Donald Trump.
