Evangelical organizers from as far away as California have been quietly mining Ohio pastors and their pews for evangelical voters, hoping to tip the election Mitt Romney's way, just as they did for President George W. Bush in 2004.
Mitt Romney's overtly political response to Tuesday's attacks on American diplomatic posts in Egypt and Libya drew fire from both the left and right, but some Republicans said the flare-up gives him an opening to further paint President Obama as the heir to President Carter.
The latest setback in a stalled 1,000-megawatt solar plant in the Southern California desert came nearly 10 months after Interior Secretary Kenneth L. Salazar and Gov. Jerry Brown broke ground on what was then touted as the world's largest solar project and a keystone of the Obama administration's solar-energy efforts.
Seeking to boost his vote totals among a crucial Florida voting bloc, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich took part in a mass conference call Wednesday involving large numbers of Florida evangelical and religious conservative voters.
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said Saturday night he will not seek the Republican presidential nomination, stepping aside after a long publicity build-up in which he dropped hints that he would join the race.
Newt Gingrich, regarded as the Republicans' best strategist when he was in Congress and still seen as one of its best planners, announced in Atlanta on Thursday that he has created a website asking people to donate to "Newt Explore 2012."
A Denver police officer who appeared as a contestant on "American Gladiators" has been cleared in a civil lawsuit alleging excessive force and wrongful arrest.

Florida officials filed an obscenity charge Monday against the author of a self-published how-to guide for pedophiles that was yanked from Amazon.com last month after it generated online outrage.
