    Romney sought to distance himself from Reagan during an Oct. 25, 1994, debate with Edward Kennedy, the veteran Democratic senator he was trying to unseat in Massachusetts. Kennedy said Romney was trying to take the U.S. back to the “Reagan-Bush years,” a reference to Reagan’s vice president and his White House successor for one term, George H.W. Bush. “I was an independent during the time of Reagan-Bush,” Romney said. “I’m not trying to return to Reagan-Bush.”

    WASHINGTON – Fox News is slamming GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump for his repeated Twitter tirades against anchor Megyn Kelly. “Donald Trump’s vitriolic attacks against Megyn Kelly and his extreme, sick obsession with her is beneath the dignity of a presidential candidate who wants to occupy the highest office in the land,” the network said in a statement this evening.

"The media has created the perception that the voters choose the nomination. That's the conflict here," Curly Haugland, an unbound GOP delegate from North Dakota, told CNBC's "Squawk Box" on Wednesday. He even questioned why primaries and caucuses are held.

    Sanders's team sued to change the state law, but a judge decided Friday on a different state-level case that effectively provided the same outcome. The Vermont senator's White House campaign has been boosted by strong support from younger voters, so the decision could prove important in the crucial state of Ohio, which has 143 delegates up for grabs.

    British Hollywood actor Jude Law’s do-gooder visit to the so-called jungle migrant camp in Calais ended in violence after a number of the party were ambushed and deprived of their mobile phones by the migrants they had gone to support. Jude Law and other celebrities including Dad’s Army reboot actor Toby Jones, musician Tom Odell, and comedian Shappi Khorsandi visited Calais last week in an effort to raise the profile of the migrant slums before they were demolished by the French authorities. The group used their trip as an opportunity to call on the British government to throw open the...

    Talk radio and Fox News host Sean Hannity is one of the biggest opponents of amnesty for illegal immigrants, but that wasn’t always the case. Hannity, who has anti-immigration candidate Donald Trump on his shows more frequently than any other presidential hopeful and has been a staunch critic of Florida Senator Marco Rubio ‘s past on the issue, supported a pathway to full citizenship for illegals in late as 2012 — months before the “Gang of 8” amnesty bill was written and when the New York Times says Rubio “pushed for immigration reform with conservative media.”

    In a surprise vote last Saturday, the Turkish parliament denied permission for the stationing of US troops on Turkish territory as part of the preparation for a war against Iraq. A draft law allowing 62,000 US troops to use Turkey as a base for invading Iraq failed to gather the necessary absolute majority. Those voting against the motion included members of the opposition social democratic Republican People’s Party (CHP) as well as nearly a third of the deputies of the ruling Party of Justice and Development (AKP).
