    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) says the leak of an unverified dossier claiming Russia has compromising information about Donald Trump is unfair to the president-elect. “The president-elect has a point,” McCain said Tuesday on "Fox & Friends." "The fact that this un-validated document, to say the least, was leaked — it’s somebody’s responsibility," said McCain, the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee. “The very fact that it was leaked, one, is a commentary on this town," he said. "Second, [it is] totally wrong to have that out.” “[It is] an un-validated document that is damning out there among the American...

    PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey's decision to again take for other uses state gas tax money intended to help cities and counties build and repair roads is getting a cold reception from some in the Legislature. The Republican governor's budget proposal for the year starting July 1 eliminates $86.5 million in highway spending in the current year, a decision likely to spur a fight with lawmakers from both parties who have been seeking a permanent stop to shifts of cash for road work to other uses. Legislation that would bar the practice and require gas tax money only...

    MESA, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - The Department of Public Safety on Monday identified the man who shot and wounded a trooper near Tonopah last week and confirmed that he was in the country illegally. Leonard Penuelas-Escobar, 37, “is a known drug user but has no criminal history that we can find,” Col. Frank Milstead, the director of DPS, said during a news conference. “We showed that he attempted to cross the border on one occasion and was turned back,” Milstead said. “We also have information that leads us to believe that in 2007 he was actually a federal police officer...

The Countering Russian Hostilities Act of 2017, whose chief sponsor is Democratic Sen. Ben Cardin of Maryland, will depute at an afternoon press conference, Politico reports. The bill is intended as a message that the GOP wishes to repudiate Russia for its hostile actions despite Republican president-elect Donald Trump has publicly questioned the country's involvement in the hack of the Democratic National Committee.

    WASHINGTON — Republican Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham pushed Sunday for greater sanctions against Russia for trying to influence the U.S. election and said President-elect Donald Trump is in danger of being in conflict with congressional Republicans if he doesn't get tougher on Russian President Vladimir Putin. The two senators, in a joint interview on Meet the Press, also said the U.S. intelligence community's evidence of Russian interference during the American presidential campaign is overwhelming, and that Trump should accept those findings. "You can't go on with your life as a democracy when a foreign entity is trying to...

    In the never-ending competition among states for jobs, Arizona stung California by enticing Lucid, a Menlo Park-based electric car company, to build its factory in Case Grande. But as Deana Carrillo has concluded, “Every company has its black box.” They all have internal reasons for coming, staying or departing for greener tax-subsidized pastures. Carrillo is executive director of the entity within Treasurer John Chiang’s office that goes by the unwieldy name of the California Alternative Energy and Advanced Transportation Financing Authority. The authority had offered a $44 million sales tax break to Lucid. However, the Arizona Commerce Authority offered $46.5...

Joanna Duka and Breanna Koski, owners of Brush & Nib Studio in Phoenix, lost a case at trial level which accused them of violating a local ordinance that protects homosexuals from discrimination, Fox News reported. The ordinance also prevents the business owners from publicly explaining their convictions or even defending their decision lest they face jail time for that as well.

    It's worth asking why Elizabeth Holmes is still leading the embattled blood testing company Theranos Inc. But there may be a good reason why she still is in charge, one that has little to do with the scandal-ridden company's performance to date. Forget what venture capitalist Tim Draper — one of the first to invest in the Palo Alto company — implied this week that Holmes is being attacked because she's a young, female entrepreneur. The simple fact is that Theranos has not been able to deliver on its technology from a commercial, scientific or regulatory standpoint, and that falls...

    The U.S. Supreme Court on Saturday reinstated an Arizona law that makes it a felony to collect early ballots, stepping into a contentious political issue days before the presidential election and dealing a blow to Democratic get-out-the-vote efforts. The unsigned order from the nation’s highest court overturns an appeals court decision from a day earlier that blocked the new law and drew celebration from Democrats. Groups immediately launched renewed efforts to help voters deliver their ballots to the polls, then stopped after the high-court ruling.

    CNN)The Supreme Court on Saturday allowed an Arizona law barring organizers from picking up ballots and delivering them to election stations to remain in effect. The ruling is a blow to Democrats in the state who say the law could disenfranchise thousands of voters, especially in minority communities that rely upon neighbors and activists to collect and hand-deliver the ballots. Friday, a 6-5 ruling by the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals granted a preliminary injunction of the law; the Supreme Court's order stays that decision. There were no noted dissents.

    It was uncharacteristically chilly as I headed for Tim Kaine’s Tucson “get out the vote” rally Thursday afternoon. I expected 10 or 20 people since it was raining and Kaine’s last rally had 30 but wondered about a leaked email I’d recently seen from the Arizona DNC asking loyal Arizona Democrats to host out of state activists in their homes. While the activists were here doing their dirty work, would they take some time off to balloon Kaine’s rally population? Perhaps so because there were hundreds of rally attendees. I was late due to unavoidable circumstances and it was 15...

    CLEVELAND (AP) — The Latest on legal arguments over allegations Republican volunteers are engaging in voter intimidation in the guise of preventing voter fraud (all times local): 7:30 p.m. A federal judge in Phoenix is refusing to issue an injunction sought by Democrats that would have ordered Republicans not to engage in illegal voter intimidation tactics at the polls next week. U.S. District Judge John Tuchi's Friday evening ruling says the state Democratic Party hadn't shown evidence that the Republicans were conspiring to conduct illegal voter intimidation. He says he's willing to revisit the issue if evidence of voter intimidation...

    J. Christian Adams of the Election Law Center and the Public Interest Legal Foundation and author of the book Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department joined SiriusXM host Alex Marlow to discuss threats to the integrity of our voting system. “For example, take citizen voting. There is something called a citizen checkbox. That’s the only way we have to stop foreigners from getting on the voter rolls. When you register to vote, you simply check a box: ‘Yes, I’m a United States citizen.’ There’s no verification in most states. You just get on the rolls because...

    First-time voter Stephanie Rodriguez, the daughter of illegal immigrants, told an MSNBC reporter Friday she is the only person in her family that can legally vote. Rodriguez, a voter in Arizona, said she cast her vote because of immigration. "I was motivated to vote by my mother, who is not able to vote, as soon as my ballot arrived at home," Rodriguez said. "She was like here it is, Stephanie, you can do it!"

    Both the Clinton and Trump campaigns have hit the ground hard in Arizona, Florida, Nevada and Pennsylvania, and new CNN/ORC polls across the four states paint a picture of a tight race to the finish in critical battlegrounds. Clinton holds a 4-point edge among likely voters in the historically blue-tilting Pennsylvania, and Trump tops Clinton by 5 with voters in red-leaning Arizona. Though both states tilt in the same direction as their 2012 results, the leaders' margins are tighter than their predecessors' final leads were in each state. Florida appears to be as tight a contest as ever, with Clinton...
