One of the veterans who helped her after the attack was in attendance Tuesday night. "This is a lot better than the last time I did one of these in Miami", Rubio said in his victory speech last night after defeating Democratic U.S. "Sen.

City leaders will now submit the statehood proposal to Congress, which can admit a new state into the union by simply voting to approve the document. The referendum backs a Constitution for the State of New Columbia as well as boundaries and an elected representative form of government.
Instead, campaign chairman and prolific emailer John Podesta was given the job of facing the disappointed throngs and telling them to go home because the race is - cough - "too close to call". "I want every person in this hall to know, and I want every person across the country who supported Hillary to know that your voices and your enthusiasm means so much to her and to Tim [Kaine] and to all of us", Podesta said.
Officials with Colonial Pipeline said a nine-member contract crew working on their Line 1 gasoline pipeline "experienced an incident when the track hoe it was operating hit the pipeline causing a fire". Colonial Pipeline, the owner, has estimated that as much as 8,000 barrels of fuel leaked before the pipeline was closed down in September. The pipeline supplies about one third of the gas up and down the east coast.
With TV screens surrounding the bar's walls, and the sound on high, it was impossible to escape the electric energy that filled the room. The fact that Trump's supporters came out strongly may point to the deeper reason why he won: his success in tapping into widespread disillusionment in America with the political establishment and a desire for change.
The Democrats were expected to pick up some seats, but even a depleted Republican majority could make governing hard for a President Hillary Clinton, by blocking her legislative agenda - especially if the Senate also remains with the GOP. Pat Toomey won a narrow victory for his second term over Democratic challenger Katie McGinty. Mica's race in part was fueled by redistricting that led to a defeat for the normally safe incumbent, who ultimately lost by almost three points.
In Illinois , Wisconsin , and Pennsylvania , the Democratic challengers were expected to win previously held by Republicans. Republicans now control both houses of Congress, but their narrow majority in the Senate was shaky, with 24 Republican seats up for grabs, and the party had scrambled to maintain its edge there.
Trump's win also deals a painful rebuke to President Barack Obama, whom he pursued for years with his birtherism campaign built on the false premise that Obama was born outside the United States. In May, the former president was booed when he went to the coalfields community of Logan. Clinton, 69, may have a solid resume, but she's been dogged by federal probes into her handling of classified e-mails, questions about her family's foundation and public doubts about her trustworthiness.
Ryan called what the fan yelled "ridiculous" and "classless". "Well, I think that's ridiculous", said Ryan, who promoted Smith to be Buffalo's special teams quality control coach in January. He took the kick - now 48 yards due to Sherman's offside penalty - but it was chalked off due to a delay of game by Buffalo, forcing them back to the 53-yard line.
However, the Trump campaign argue nothing has changed. Clinton campaigned with confidence, buoyed by FBI Director James Comey's announcement Sunday that he would not recommend criminal charges against her following a new email review. Looking ahead, economic data for China scheduled to be released this week, including trade figures, will be closely watched by the Asian market, say traders.
Thursday's game would have been well out of reach in the first half had the Bulls connected more often with no one guarding them. Once he nailed this shot, he did a throat-slashing motion to put a stamp on what he just did. If you didn't watch the game you can look at that breakdown and definitively say that this is the reason why the Celtics failed to win the game. On the other side, Al Horford was kept in check for the most part, scoring only 11 points and grabbing 7 rebounds .
Monday was to be the first day in what could be a multi-week process of whittling down a jury pool for Roof , who faces 33 federal charges including hate crimes and obstruction of religion, for the June 2015 shooting deaths at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston.
Democratic attempts to filibuster Trump's choice would likely lead Republicans to end that option for Supreme Court justices, just as Democrats did for other judicial nominations when their party controlled the Senate. Ginsburg may find herself in an uncomfortable spotlight. Ginsburg said she saw no reason to retire and suggested she was confident another Democrat would follow Obama in the White House.
The Democrats' "belated, inflammatory allegations appear meant to generate only heat", and don't support claims that the Trump campaign threatened voting rights, Diamond said in a 16-page ruling. Diamond sounded skeptical of the Democratic claims, asking lawyers for evidence of voter intimidation in the district. The case is Pennsylvania Democratic Party v.
The Post said the total control over the executive and legislative branches of government in the southern USA state gives Kentucky Republicans "a clear path to pass a range of conservative bills that had been stopped by the Democratic statehouse".
At 2.30am ET, the Associated Press called the election for Trump , after a projected win in Wisconsin ensured he'd reach the magic 270 electoral college figure. "Hillary has worked very long and very hard over a long period of time, and we owe her a major debt of gratitude for her service to our country". "We're not going to have anything more to say tonight", he said.
Munger's husband, John Munger, who is an attorney for Jansson Munger McKinley & Sharpe in Lake Forest, contributed $260,000 to Munger's committee on September 23, according to Illinois State Board of Elections data.

During closing arguments today at Harris' trial in Brunswick, Georgia, about 300 miles from Atlanta, the prosecutor said there is no doubt Cooper died due to the heat, no doubt Harris lived a double life and no doubt that Harris left Cooper in his auto, while defense attorney Maddox Kilgore said Cooper's death was an accident.
But after his agents worked "around the clock" to review "a large volume of emails" sent to or from Clinton when she was secretary of state, Comey said Sunday that nothing had changed. The FBI's letter was welcomed by the Clinton campaign, which saw its popularity graph sharply dropping down in the aftermath of the October 28 letter."We were always confident nothing would cause the July decision to be revisited".
According to the report, U.S. District Judge Richard Gergel needed to privately hear a motion filed by Roof's attorneys earlier that morning. Prosecutors have said in court filings that they believe Roof "self-radicalized" online , absorbing violent white-supremacist beliefs from material he found on the Internet.
The two each wrapped up a long day Monday with late-night rallies, Clinton in North Carolina and Trump in MI. What Trump said: "Here in Minnesota, you've seen first hand the problems caused with faulty refugee-vetting, with very large numbers of Somali refugees coming into your state without your knowledge, your support or approval".
That was well below the 30 seats Democrats needed to capture House control. Republicans now have 48 Senate seats to the Democrats' 45. She thinks although these issues will require negotiation it may be the catalyst that can unify a Republican Congress with a Trump-led White House.

Supreme Court justice represents conservative values. Many of Utah's mostly Mormon voters struggled to embrace Trump's brash demeanor and recoiled over the billionaire's comments about women, minorities and Muslims. Graham also said there are more challenges ahead and said he will help President Trump to the extent that he can. "These are two of the most disliked and untrustworthy candidates that we've had from the major parties", Robinson said.
He would take over an office racked by turmoil over the arrest and conviction of Kathleen Kane , who held the office until August. But also because Shapiro and Rafferty live in the voter-rich Philadelphia suburbs in Montgomery County, which negated a cross-state rivalry that can generate headlines.
Trump ran away with the majority of electoral voters - winning key states such as Florida, Ohio and North Carolina.

Defying so many of those pre-September predictions from the punditry, Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys have followed a one-point loss in their opener with seven straight victories. Jones was quick to step around questions of Romo taking over for Prescott upon his return. There are a number of teams facing a quarterback dilemma this season.
Clinton called her Republican rival to concede but did not speak publicly about the stunning results. Trump said he congratulated Clinton and her family on a "very, very hard-fought campaign". But the race was expected to be determined by fewer than a dozen competitive states where the candidates spent millions of dollars and much of the fall wooing voters.
Gas prices remained unchanged Wednesday morning as crews work to inspect damage done from an explosion at a pipeline that supplies the majority of North Carolina's gasoline. A rise in gas prices is not unusual during shut downs of USA pipelines, said McTeague. But a second pipeline, also knocked out, that carries diesel and jet fuel restarted late Monday.
I don't think so. Both Clinton and Trump have also proposed an infrastructure bank to attract private funds and Trump has suggested lifting restrictions on energy production to generate tax revenues. The GOP, meanwhile, is expected to hold onto the House of Representatives, but likely with a reduced majority. Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton , arrived at their local polling station in Chappaqua, New York, shortly after 8 a.m.as a crowd of cheering supporters snapped ...
