  • Chaos on the border inflames GOP’s split with Latinos

    When more than 1,000 Latino officials __ a crop of up-and-coming representatives from a fast-growing demographic __ gathered in Phoenix last week, no one from the Trump administration was there to greet them. It marked the first time a presidential administration skipped the annual conference of the National Association of Latino Elected Officials in at least 24 years. But the absence was striking for another reason. As jarring images of severed Central American migrant families played out on television, the White House chose not to make the case for its immigration policy to these key politicians.

  • DENVER | 8 vie in primaries to succeed centrist Colorado governor

    DENVER (AP) — Colorado holds primaries Tuesday to select the top two contenders to succeed Gov. John Hickenlooper, a centrist Democrat whose promotion of aerospace, tech and a plethora of other industries helped generate unprecedented economic growth in this rapidly-growing state of 5.6 million people.

  • WASHINGTON | Sanders says she was told to leave Virginia restaurant

    WASHINGTON (AP) — White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders acknowledged Saturday in a tweet that she was booted from a Virginia restaurant Friday night because she works for President Donald Trump.

  • AMERICAN FORK, Utah | Romney making final pitch ahead of Senate primary in Utah

    AMERICAN FORK, Utah (AP) — Mitt Romney is flashing his familiar smile at city parks and backyards in Utah’s mountains and suburbs this week, making his final pitch after being forced into a Republican Senate primary Tuesday against a conservative state lawmaker. His opponent has painted him as an outsider who can’t get along with President Donald Trump, but Romney has quieted his once-strident criticism. “I’m not someone who’s going to be a daily commentator on everything the president says by any means, but if there’s something of significance that the president says or does, I feel a moral obligation to express my own view,” he told The Associated Press in an interview at a Utah restaurant where heads turned and people stopped to ask for photos.

  • LINDSAY, Okla. | Oklahoma medical pot question hinges on conservative support

    LINDSAY, Okla. (AP) — More traditionally conservative Republican voters in Oklahoma now favor medical marijuana and that could ensure the state joins the growing list of places where pot is legal in some form.

    MOSCOW (AP) — For an England team that came to the World Cup with reduced expectations, things are setting up nicely.
