The agent and Rodriguez struggled for the gun, and even the help of two other agents was not enough to pry the...

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Days after a poll showed Keith Ellison trailing in the race for attorney general following allegations of domestic abuse against him, the Democrat went on the offensive against Republican Doug Wardlow on Thursday, saying his opponent's work for a conservative Christian legal advocacy group against gay rights shows that he has an agenda of discrimination. Ellison issued a statement pointing out that President Donald Trump's administration told the U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday that a federal appeals court got the law wrong when it ruled last year against a Michigan funeral home that fired a transgender worker...

    Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, has covered herself in shame these last couple of weeks. Her desire to see Brett Kavanaugh's chances of replacing Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy destroyed by any means necessary has been a sickening display of petty, short-sighted partisan zealotry. But there is one unintentionally humorous moment in the parade of awful that has vomited forth from the senator’s office: The moment this week when she attacked the GOP for supposedly behaving like ... Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn.? Republicans “cannot face the idea that women do not sit around making these things up,” Hirono said Monday on...
