    Donald Trump’s second town hall event on a major cable network since he announced his 2024 campaign for president will take place June 1 on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show, the network announced Thursday. The town hall will take place in Clive, Iowa, and will be pre-taped, according to the network. Trump’s last on-camera interview with Hannity was in September, and the indicted GOP candidate more recently participated in a lengthy, mostly one-sided discussion with former Fox News host Tucker Carlson in April. Earlier this month, CNN hosted a widely criticized live town hall event with Trump in New Hampshire.Just...

    Ron DeSantis is set to unveil the endorsements of more than three-dozen Iowa state legislators ahead of his trip to the state on Saturday — giving him a boost in a state that traditionally hosts the Republican Party’s first presidential nominating contest. DeSantis has spent the last few weeks reaching out to Iowa Republicans, according to a person familiar with the calls. The governor did not explicitly ask for their support during those conversations, which were instead focused on legislative matters taking place in Florida and Iowa. The endorsements, however, provide a political jolt for DeSantis as he readies for...

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Will he or won’t he run? That continues to be the question as Florida’s governor departs for another out-of-state trip this weekend. Ron DeSantis is hitting Illinois Friday evening, then the key caucus state of Iowa on Saturday, only furthering speculation that a White House bid is right around the corner. Wthout saying so, DeSantis is giving every indication that he’s getting ready for a bid. He hasn’t given a firm "no" when asked, and has a new book laying out his political platform. Post-legislative session, Florida governor is in the air again, this time to Iowa,...

    SPENCER, Iowa — Iowa landowners opposed to proposed liquid carbon dioxide pipelines crossing their property won a legal victory Wednesday, when a judge ruled a state law giving surveyors the right of entry to private property is unconstitutional. Ruling in a Clay County case, District Judge John Sandy said the law violated Iowa's constitution because it does not provide for just compensation for certain damages to landowners for their loss of the right to deny entry onto their land. "The court can find no other reasonable interpretation in which Iowa Code (section) 479B.15 passes 'constitutional muster,'" Sandy said in his...

    resident Joe Biden's newly launched 2024 re-election campaign is not off to the smoothest start. One of Biden's challengers may be poised to secure the first electoral contests of the season, putting the incumbent president at risk of losing early state nominations to lesser-known candidates, NBC News reported. The new primary calendar ratified by the Democratic National Committee - at Biden's request - downgraded Iowa and New Hampshire from their longstanding positions as the first electoral hoorahs of the primary season. As a result, candidates are prohibited from campaigning - or even adding their names to the ballot - in...
