RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - Congressman Mark Meadow's bold move to oust U.S. House Speaker John Boehner from his post has drawn a comparison to Donald Trump by the Washington Post.

In a story published Monday, the Post reporter describes Meadows' reception by a crowd of Republicans when the congressman tells them Republicans in charge in Washington have let them down.

Boehner has described Meadows' effort as "no big deal" and just an example of a congressman who is "off the reservation."

Conservatives like Meadows believe Boehner has thwarted their efforts to directly oppose Obamacare and other Obama administration efforts they believe are examples of excessive government power.

RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush will make a major economic speech in the Wake County town of Garner next week.

Bush campaign officials say the former Florida governor will visit Morris and Associates Wednesday for a lunchtime address.

Bush had been considered the frontrunner for the party's nomination until entrepreneur Donald Trump took the lead several weeks ago. Trump has targeted Bush by name in his stump speeches, an indication the businessman sees Bush as his chief rival, according to political watchers.
