Arizona Iced Election Results

11/29/2022
Protesters in China continue to voice their discontent over the country's strict "zero Covid" policies. And while authorities have eased restrictions in some cities in an effort to quell public anger, Beijing isn't backing down from the overall strategy. It's been three weeks since Election Day, but in one Arizona county and two in Pennsylvania, the GOP remains in a state of denial about the results. And in headlines: the gunman who killed 10 Black people in a racist mass shooting in...

Florida Man Makes Announcement

Whether we like it or not, the 2024 campaign season has officially kicked off, after Donald Trump announced he’s running for president for the third time. But many of his allies are already eyeing the exits.

The Kids Are All Left

11/16/2022
Republicans have essentially secured a House majority for the next two years.

We Did It Again, Joe

11/14/2022
Democrats have officially retained their majority in the U.S. Senate, after incumbent Nevada Senator Catherine Cortez Masto held off a challenge from her Trump-endorsed Republican challenger, Adam Laxalt.

SCOTUS And The Future Of Indigenous Sovereignty

11/11/2022
As the vote count continues from Tuesday's midterm elections, both parties are eyeing next month's Senate runoff in Georgia, but Arizona and Nevada are also in the spotlight.

Brackeen, a case challenging the Indian Child Welfare Act. Rebecca Nagle, host of Crooked's "This Land" podcast, explains why it could ultimately upend other legal...

True Crime Rates

And with tensions already high in the region, there’s concern that North Korea may attempt a nuclear weapons test. And in headlines: former Pakistani prime minister Imran Khan was...

As Democrats make their final push on the campaign trail ahead of Election Day, election deniers are making their presence known in person.
