WINTER WEATHER

CHICAGO _ The painfully cold weather system that put much of the Midwest into a historic deep freeze was easing its grip Thursday, though temperatures still tumbled to record lows in some places. Disruptions caused by the cold will persist, too, including power outages and canceled flights and trains. Crews in Detroit will need days to repair water mains that burst Wednesday, and other pipes may still burst in persistent subzero temperatures. By Michael Tarm and Corey Williams.

Sherrod Brown of Ohio and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota — are offering themselves as potential contenders uniquely attuned to the region’s priorities. By Elana Schor and Sara Burnett.
