WASHINGTON — There's a border crisis in Pennsylvania. The radical left is surging in New Jersey. And Nancy Pelosi is a threat to New York. Republican candidates in the nation's premier midterm battlegrounds have embraced a central message in their fight to maintain the House majority this fall — and it has little to do with the surging economy or the sweeping tax cuts that the GOP celebrated as a once-in-a-generation achievement just eight months ago. By Steve Peoples and Bill Barrow.
TUSKEGEE, Ala. — In 1906, when aging, white Confederate veterans of the Civil War and black ex-slaves still lived on the old plantations of the Deep South, two very different celebrations were afoot in this city known even then as a beacon of black empowerment. Tuskegee Institute, founded to educate Southern blacks whose families had lived in bondage for generations, was saluting its 25th anniversary. By Jay Reeves. Abridged version also moving.
FESTIVAL-DEAF CULTURE, from LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A daylong event highlighting hard of hearing and Deaf culture, art and language is set for next month in Kentucky's largest city.
