Trump Republicans rebuff Democrats, keep Arizona seat

Trump Republicans rebuff Democrats, keep Arizona seatDonald Trump’s Republicans won a closely watched congressional election Tuesday in Arizona, but by a single-digit margin in a district the president won easily in 2016, as Democrats made a strong showing ahead of mid-term elections. Former state lawmaker Debbie Lesko, a Trump supporter, kept the House seat safely in Republican hands in a conservative leaning district that saw a spirited challenge from Democratic political novice Hiral Tipirneni, a cancer researcher and former emergency room physician.

Republicans rebuff students' call for tough gun curbs

Republicans rebuff students' call for tough gun curbsRepublican leaders rebuffed calls for major changes to US gun laws Tuesday following the mass shooting at a Florida high school, as students braced for their emotional return to the campus where 14 classmates and three staff were murdered. Student survivors of the Valentine’s Day assault met with members of Congress to urge curbs on firearm sales but found little enthusiasm for legislative action beyond closing gaps in a national background check system. President Donald Trump has called for stronger background checks in the wake of the shooting, and the White House said he “still supports” raising the minimum age from 18 to 21 for some gun purchases, a policy opposed by the National Rifle Association, America’s powerful gun lobby group.
