Latest news from the Democratic National Convention

FILE - In this Jan. 3, 2013 file photo, House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio, left, performs a mock swearing in for Rep. Ted Yoho, R-Fla., right, accompanied by his wife Carolyn, on Capitol Hill in Washington as the 113th Congress began. As a Republican, freshman Yoho cares about the Republican Party’s image and fate. But what he especially cares about is a tiny sliver of the GOP: about 22,000 primary voters who lean heavily conservative, and who secured his spot in the House of Representatives. Yoho is hardly alone. Many other House Republicans owe their elections to similarly small and ideologically intense electorates. These GOP lawmakers pay far less attention to the party’s national reputation. And that deeply frustrates activists trying to build broad, national coalitions to elect a Republican as president in 2016 and beyond. (AP Photo/Cliff Owen, File)
