TOP STORY:

ELECTION 2020-HOUSE GOP RECRUITS

WASHINGTON _ Top Republicans are searching district-by-district for just the right candidates — women and political newcomers in many cases — to help them recapture the House, six months after a political tidal wave swept Democrats into control with the most diverse majority in history. Recruits include one of the few Republican women in the Oklahoma state Senate and a black political novice from Houston with Iraq combat experience and three Ivy League degrees on his resume. They are part of a GOP drive to gain at least 18 seats in the 2020 elections to win the majority — historically a tall order for the party out of power in presidential election years. By Alan Fram.
