Donald Trump All but Clinches Nomination

With Indiana Win; Cruz Quits

 

MAY 3, 2016

By JONATHAN MARTIN

and PATRICK HEALY

 

Donald J. Trump became the presumptive Republican

presidential nominee on Tuesday with a landslide win in

Indiana that drove his principal opponent, Senator Ted Cruz,

from the race and cleared the way for the polarizing, populist

outsider to take control of the party.

Gay Marriage Close to Legal in Maryland

 

February 23, 2012

The New York Times

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

 

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP)

Gay marriage is all but legalized in Maryland

after the legislature gave its final OK Thursday to the law

that's being sent to Gov. Martin O'Malley,

who said he expects to sign it sometime this week.

The state Senate voted 25-22 for the law.

The vote comes less than a week

after the House of Delegates barely passed the measure.

Maryland will become the eighth state to allow gay marriage

when O'Malley who sponsored the bill signs the legislation.

The Democrat made the measure a priority this session

after it stalled last year.

Supreme Court Is Asked

to Rule on Health Care

The New York Times
By ADAM LIPTAK

 

WASHINGTON The Obama administration

asked the Supreme Court on Wednesday to hear a case

concerning the 2010 health care overhaul law.

The development, which came unexpectedly fast,

makes it all but certain that the court will soon agree to hear

one or more cases involving challenges to the law,

with arguments by the spring and a decision by June,

in time to land in the middle of the 2012 presidential campaign.

September 3, 2011

The New York Times

By CAMPBELL ROBERTSON

 

NEW ORLEANS A slow-moving and soggy storm

that has been dawdling in the Gulf of Mexico for days

moved toward the shore Saturday morning,

bringing with it rainfall so heavy that officials

say extensive flooding is all but inevitable in areas along the coast.
