Supreme Court upholds Arizona legislative redistricting

SCOTUS uholds AZ redistrictingThe Supreme Court ruled unanimously Wednesday that an Arizona redistricting plan that favors Democrats does not violate the 'one-person, one-vote" principle established by the Constitution.

In an opinion written by Justice Stephen Breyer, the court said that Arizona's redistricting commission was motivated "predominantly" by a desire to have the state legislative districts win Justice Department approval under the Voting Rights Act.

In Wyoming, Cruz shows edge over Trump in grasp of nuances of White House race

Ted Cruz edges out Trump in Wyoming delegatesU.S. Senator Ted Cruz is poised to notch another small but important victory in his battle with billionaire Donald Trump for the Republican presidential nomination at a hotel convention center in the ranching city of Casper, Wyoming, this weekend.
