Playing The Waiting Game: Beto Is In No Rush To Decide His 2020 Move

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — If the deep field of potential Democratic presidential contenders is on pins and needles as Beto O’Rourke decides his next move, it could be a long wait. The outgoing Texas congressman’s team says he has no timeline or roadmap for deciding if he’d like to parlay a surprisingly close loss to Republican Sen. Ted Cruz into a White House try. People close to O’Rourke insist he hasn’t expanded staff or lined up consultants even as the interest in him intensifies. They say he’s...

Amid Bomb Scares, Trump Skips Oval Office Speech, Doesn’t Reach Out To Predecessor

WASHINGTON (AP) — It didn’t last. With the country on edge over a widening pipe-bomb scare, talk of national unity quickly gave way to finger-pointing.

Less than two weeks before midterm elections, the discovery of pipe bombs sent to prominent Democrats — an episode that might have prompted national reflection in another era — hardly made a ripple on t...
