    Given the popularity of former President Donald Trump, and with former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley and Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., in the field, commanding a key battleground was always going to be difficult for Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis.

Trump leads by 28 points with 46% support, while Haley has surged to 18%, and Scott has hit double digits, at 10%. Despite being a plurality choice and not a majority...

    U.S. President Joe Biden's nominee to head the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is withdrawing his nomination after Republican criticism that he was not qualified to serve as the top aviation regulator. Last year, Biden nominated Denver International Airport CEO Phil Washington to serve as FAA administrator. A spokesperson for Washington at the airport did not immediately comment. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg late Saturday confirmed Washington's withdrawal first reported by Reuters. "The partisan attacks and procedural obstruction he has faced are undeserved, but I respect his decision to withdraw and am grateful for his service," Buttigieg said on Twitter.

    Almost 250 guns ended up in a dumpster outside an Oklahoma City gun store. Federal agents are looking into whether the owner properly disposed of the guns, which he said were defective. A man said a teen employee gave him two guns from the dumpster for free, per court documents. Federal agents are trying to figure out why an Oklahoma gun store owner threw almost 250 guns in a dumpster, and why a man was allegedly allowed to keep two of them as a memento.

    On August 15, 1977, the Big Ear radio telescope on the campus of Ohio State University recorded a 72-second narrowband signal onto a paper tape. Several days later, Jerry Ehman, an astronomer at the university, studied the tape and found the signal so unusual that he scrawled the word Wow! next to the data points. Since that time, the signal has been discussed at great length in the astronomy community, but nobody has been able to explain its origin. The researchers focused their efforts on that star system using two telescopes, the Green Bank Telescope and the Allen Telescope Array....
