    "Pawlenty, who called Trump 'unfit and unhinged,' derailed in comeback attempt in Minnesota; battle lines drawn in Connecticut

    Tim Pawlenty -- who briefly ran for president in 2012 and had derided President Trump as "unhinged" -- was denied in his effort to stage a political comeback and become Minnesota’s governor again in the race to replace Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton.

    County Commissioner Jeff Johnson won in Tuesday's Minnesota GOP gubernatorial primary despite Pawlenty's enormous fundraising and name recognition advantages. He also won despite his own history as the party's losing candidate for governor four years ago.

    Pawlenty joins several other prominent Republicans -- including Reps. Martha Roby and Mark Sanford, as well as Sens. Jeff Flake and Bob Corker -- who have recently suffered major political consequences, at least in part, for opposing Trump.

    Poor, poor Never-Trumpers.

    Good, that's what they get for breaking Ronald Reagan's 11th commandment. Some Republicans just never learn. So frustrating how they'll eat their own.

    It's somewhat reassuring that so many dem and repub politicians have been facing closer examination by voters. It's about time.

    Well, that ought to be embarrassing for someone, and more so if they don't realize it. Weird ...

    He's the ONLY reason I noted in the primary yesterday. To keep that RINO off the ticket. Glad I did,

    This has got to be the dumbest thing I've seen today and I've been looking.
