    SALT LAKE CITY — The race for the Republican nomination for Utah's 2nd Congressional District seat remained close Tuesday night, though GOP convention winner Celeste Maloy developed a growing lead as the evening drew to a close. As the first counties began to report, Becky Edwards jumped out ahead of Maloy and Bruce Hough, but Maloy — who is from Cedar City — gained ground throughout the night and took a narrow lead after more than doubling Edwards' vote share in the latest results from Washington County.

    Enrique Tarrio, the former chairman of the Proud Boys, and four other members of the far-right group were indicted on Monday for seditious conspiracy in connection with the storming of the Capitol last January, the most serious crime to be charged in the Justice Department’s sprawling investigation of the assault. The sedition charges against Mr. Tarrio and his co-defendants — Joseph Biggs, Ethan Nordean, Zachary Rehl and Dominic Pezzola — came in an amended indictment that was unsealed in Federal District Court in Washington. The men had already been charged in an earlier indictment filed in March with conspiring to...

    Representative Madison Cawthorn, a North Carolina Republican, appears to be losing substantial support from GOP voters while still maintaining a lead over his chief primary challenger, new polling shows. Cawthorn, who has been endorsed by former President Donald Trump, faces opposition from Republican leaders in his state, including North Carolina's GOP Senator Thom Tillis. The Republican lawmaker has endured numerous scandals in recent weeks, with the number ramping up rapidly as opponents could be spreading dirt on the Trump-backed freshman incumbent in an effort to oust him from office. While the scandals appear to have had an impact, according to...

    Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards faced a chorus of criticism and questions this morning following an Associated Press report showing he knew about the death of Ronald Greene following a violent interaction with State Police hours after it happened in 2019, USA Today Network reports. Republican House Speaker Clay Schexnayder said in a statement that if the Democratic governor was complicit in a State Police cover-up it “would demonstrate gross misconduct and the highest level of deceit on behalf of the governor and others.” But the questions about the timing and extent of the governor’s knowledge about the Ronald Greene...

    Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards (D) extended the statewide mask mandate on Tuesday yet again, declaring “masks have been proven to help slow the spread” of the Chinese coronavirus.

It was originally set to expire on September 1, but the governor extended the rule until September 29. Then, the day before it was set to expire, he extended yet another month. Now it will remain in place until “at least” October 27:

    President Joe Biden told Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards to 'just holler' for help on Monday after Hurricane Ida ravaged the gulf coast and referred to his senior adviser, former Rep. Cedric Richmond, as 'boy.' Biden introduced Richmond, a New Orleans native who quit Congress to serve in the White House, by a term that some see as derogatory. Richmond joined Biden on the virtual call with governors, mayors and officials from the states impacted by Hurricane Ida, which has killed at least one person and left millions without power. Biden announced Richmond would be the administration's point person on...

    NEW ORLEANS, La. — Edwin Washington Edwards, the high-living, quick-witted four-term governor who reshaped Louisiana’s oil revenues and dominated the state’s politics for decades, a run all but overshadowed by scandal and eight years in federal prison, died Monday.

Jay Morris (R) sponsored the legislation. He responded to Edwards’ veto by saying, “I certainly can’t say it’s a surprise; the governor has been clear all along. But I’m still disappointed. This bill is for law-abiding and freedom-loving citizens.”

    What happened to President Obama’s majority? The surface-level answer to this question is simple. Donald Trump won over a supermajority of white working-class voters while holding on to many traditional Republicans, allowing him to win the Electoral College. At the same time, down-ballot Republicans built on their solid showings in 2010 and 2014, which helped them retain control of Congress and significant power in the states.
