  • Huckabee enters crowded GOP field

    By The Associated Press | Updated: 14 hr ago

    HOPE, Ark. — Mike Huckabee declared his presidential candidacy Tuesday, counting on his brand of conservative populism to make his second White House bid more successful than his first. In 2008, he captivated evangelical Republicans but couldn't build wide enough support to win the Republican nomination. The former Arkansas governor announced his 2016 bid in the hometown he shares with former President Bill Clinton, becoming the sixth notable Republican to enter the campaign, with more to come. “I don't have a global foundation or a taxpayer-funded paycheck to live off of,” Huckabee said. “I don't come from a family dynasty, but a working family.

  • U.S. cities, states continue dissention over energy drilling, fracking issues

    By The Associated Press | Updated: 15 hr ago

    Clashes are growing between cities and states across America over oil and gas drilling and hydraulic fracturing, the practice of high pressure injections of water, sand and chemicals underground to free deposits of oil and gas. Energy-rich states are rushing to quash some of the local activism. Following is a summary of state debates. In Texas, which leads the nation in oil and natural gas production, a measure to limit local regulations to those deemed “commercially reasonable” has passed the Legislature and is expected to be signed into law by Republican Gov. Greg Abbott. Cities would be allowed to regulate surface activities such as noise, lights and traffic but not drilling itself.

    Clippers' Paul 50-50 for Wednesday Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers thinks the odds are 50-50 point guard Chris Paul will return on Wednesday night to try to help the Clippers build a 2-0 lead over the Houston Rockets in the Western Conference semifinals. Paul missed Game 1 against the Rockets with a left hamstring that was strained in the Clippers' stirring Game 7 victory over San Antonio. The Clippers surprised many by opening the semifinals with a victory in Houston, but Rivers said that would not affect the timeline for Paul's return. With one road win already in hand, some think it would be easier for Rivers to rest Paul

    ATLANTA — DeMarre Carroll scored 22 points, Kyle Korver bounced back from a miserable first half and the top-seeded Atlanta Hawks held off the Washington Wizards 106-90 on Tuesday night, taking advantage of John Wall's absence to even the Eastern Conference semifinals at one game apiece. Wall, who finished the series opener with an injured left hand, was a surprising scratch just before Game 2, shortly after the Wizards insisted he would play. Ramon Sessions did an admirable job filling in, leading his team with 21 points, but Washington lost for the first time in these playoffs. Korver went 1-for-7 from the 3-point line in the first half but kept
