Both leading candidates in the Republican and Democratic primaries in New York extended their leads over their rivals. But for the Republican primaries, the outcome is not yet certain.
On Tuesday, North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory caved to pressure from big businesses and the LGBT community and signed an executive order to change the state’s recently passed LGBT law that barred local governments from extending protections to gay and transgender individuals and mandated that individuals use bathrooms based on the biological sex that appears on their birth certificates. Unfortunately for the governor, the order failed to appease the law's critics and has provoked criticism from the law's supporters.
On March 30, President Obama commuted the prison sentences of 62 criminals, 12 of whom were behind bars for gun-related drug crimes. This was just too much for Alabama’s senior Senator Richard Shelby (R), so the next day Shelby sent a stinging letter to Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
Trump strategist Roger Stone is claiming that Republican Party leaders are trying to "steal" the election from the New York frontrunner, and calls for Trump supporters to "persuade" delegates at the Republican National Convention to nominate Trump instead.
Have nominations been "stolen" in the past? Do the efforts of the anti-Trump forces constitute "stealing"?
The U.S. Treasury instituted a temporary rule to stop tax inversions used by companies to reduce their tax burden. Obama and other Democrats want it permanent.
Hillary Clinton has stepped in it again, and this time it has nothing to do with her e-mail antics. And the fire is not only coming from the Right. The newest kerfuffle in which the presidential candidate finds herself has to do with calling a “fetus” an “unborn person.” To the Left, this simple statement of biological — and logical — fact is nothing less than political heresy.
Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders won a majority of the delegates in Wisconsin, boosting their electoral prospects, but Hillary seems to have the Democrat nomination sewn up, and Trump's primary prospects still look good, despite his repeated verbal gaffs.
In yet another display of censorious political correctness on campus, Emory University students protest Trump's name as offensive and hurtful.
