    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Two-term U.S. Rep. James Lankford emerged from a crowded primary field Tuesday to win the Republican nomination for Oklahoma's open U.S. Senate seat, avoiding a runoff despite a well-funded challenge from a tea party-backed candidate. By getting more than 50 percent of the vote, the 46-year-old Lankford advances to face the Democratic nominee and one independent in November. The seat became open when GOP U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn announced in January he planned to step down with two years remaining on his term following a recurrence of prostate cancer.

    Appearing in front of the House Oversight Committee Wednesday morning Lois Lerner, former head of tax exempt groups at the IRS, refused to answer questions asked by lawmakers by pleading the Fifth Amendment. Earlier this week, Lerner's attorney William Taylor confirmed to Committee members in an email that she would testify. Lerner was issued a subpoena last summer after admitting the IRS singled out conservative groups for extra scrutiny. "On the advice of my counsel I respectfully exercise my fifth amendment right and decline to answer that question," Lerner said. Last year, Lerner was called to testify in front of...

    Sen. Rand Paul launched into an old-fashioned filibuster on the Senate floor Wednesday as he tried to hold up the nomination of John Brennan for CIA director over concerns about the president’s authority to kill Americans with drones. Paul, R-Ky., is one of several lawmakers – on both sides of the aisle – who has raised concerns about the legal justification for launching drone strikes against Americans overseas. But Paul took to the floor after receiving a statement from Attorney General Eric Holder that creaked open the door to the possibility of using a drone to kill an American inside...

    Speaking at a press conference today, Barack Obama finally tried to distance himself from his pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright. It appears Wright's "performance," as Obama called it, at the National Press Club finally put him over the edge. If he had done this at the start of the controversy, it may have saved him from the serious damage that is being done to his campaign by Wright's reappearance on the political scene.

    Barack Obama, declaring “that’s enough,” denounced Tuesday as “appalling” and “ridiculous” comments made in the last few days by his former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr. In a press conference in North Carolina, the Illinois senator used his strongest language to date to condemn Wright’s controversial sermons, which have remained a burden on his campaign since they became national news more than a month ago. Wright spoke Monday at The National Press Club in Washington, D.C. “I am outraged by the comments that were made, and saddened over the spectacle that we saw yesterday,” Obama said. “The person I...

    Romney's 31.5% victory is almost exactly what then-Gov. Bush picked up at Ames in 1999, but Romney's margin over his nearest competitor was higher than what Bush won with. Romney bested Mike Huckabee by 13% while Bush defeated Steve Forbes by 10%. Huckabee's second place finish is a surprise and could offer the Arkansan a nice boost. Sam Brownback clearly spent more money on his effort -- he rented buses while Huckabee couldn't afford any -- but came up about 400 votes shy of Huckabee. After putting in the effort he did today and in the weeks leading up to...
