    A mural of the late Black Lives Matter icon George Floyd has been struck by lightning and has collapsed.

    WASHINGTON (Gray DC) -- Both republicans and democrats say Ohio is a key battleground state in the upcoming election. That’s why President Trump will head to Toledo.

    At a time when momentum and political pundits seem to favor Barack Obama winning the Democratic presidential nomination, other indicators suggest the LGBT community's support is still largely behind Hillary Clinton, except in Texas. And Texas is one of three large primary states remaining that pundits say Clinton must win in order to stay even with Obama in the contest to secure enough delegates to win the nomination. The latest poll in Texas, conducted by CNN February 15-17 among 529 likely primary voters, found Clinton just two points ahead of Obama. A poll just a few days earlier, by the...
