Inside Politics: Lawmakers tackle right to skip immunizations
Question of the Day
Mr. Obama is certain to reach the 2,778 delegates he needs to secure his party nod for a second time when voters in five states go to the polls Tuesday. He has won almost every delegate so far, with a few exceptions in some Southern states that won’t vote Democratic in the fall anyway.
But don’t expect a big party, or any party. Campaign officials say they are focused on the general election, as they have been for months, and the all-but-certain Republican nominee, Mitt Romney.
Rubio: Vice-presidential process deserves respect
Mr. Rubio says that until now, the talk about picking a running mate has been theoretical. But now that Mr. Romney’s path is clear, Mr. Rubio says “It would be wise for all Republicans to kind of respect that process, myself included.”
The Cuban-American and freshman lawmaker says Mr. Romney has made good decisions in his business and political career and “he’s going to make a great choice” for a running mate.
Mr. Rubio tells CNN’s “State of the Union” that he’s not going to discuss the search any more. He says the last thing Mr. Romney needs is to have “us in the peanut gallery … saying what we would or would not do.”
FBI source: Lawmaker spent campaign cash freely
Documents released by the FBI show that a source told investigators that an Alaska congressman and his late wife spent campaign money on hunting trips and flights and wrote checks to themselves over years of allegedly profligate spending on his contributors’ dime.
The documents were released Friday, more than three months after a federal judge rejected the Justice Department’s refusal to turn over records of its criminal investigation.
The source, whose identify was redacted in the documents, appeared to have intimate knowledge of Mr. Young’s D.C. office and was familiar with Mr. Young and his wife’s conduct during fundraising trips.
