Republicans worried over midterms as Trump and Pence scramble to avoid defeat in Ohio special election

Republicans worried over midterms as Trump and Pence scramble to avoid defeat in Ohio special electionRepublicans are concerned Donald Trump will limit candidates’ popularity in the upcoming midterm elections as he parachutes into Ohio, attempting to drag the party across the line in a once-safe seat. The GOP holds a razor-thin lead in Ohio’s 12th Congressional District as voters head to the polls for a special election on Tuesday in a constituency represented by a Republican for all bar two years since 1939. Democratic candidate Danny O’Connor has narrowed the gap to Republican rival Troy Balderson to just one per cent according to recent polls of the district, which Mr Trump carried by 11 points in 2016.

Crews scramble to protect homes from fierce California wildfire

Crews scramble to protect homes from fierce California wildfireMore than 1,200 firefighters aided by water-dropping helicopters battled a wind-driven wildfire raging out of control in Northern California on Monday, threatening homes and other structures as thick black smoke drifted across the San Francisco Bay Area. The so-called County Fire, which broke out on Saturday afternoon in rural Yolo County, west of Sacramento, has already blackened more than 50 square miles of grass, brush and dense scrub oak and was only 3 percent contained as of Monday afternoon. Scott McLean of the California Department of Forestry and Fire protection said the job of hand crews and bulldozer operators trying to cut containment lines was made more difficult by high winds, which were blowing embers and starting new spot fires.
