Democrat trounces Republican in Kentucky state race where Trump won with 72% of vote

Democrat trounces Republican in Kentucky state race where Trump won with 72% of voteThe Democrats have emphatically won a state House seat in a Kentucky district where Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton by 49 points in 2016. Linda Belcher’s victory in Bullitt County, where she polled more than two-thirds of the vote, is thought to be the Democrats’ 37th gain since the presidential election and is the latest sign of the party’s momentum ahead of pivotal midterms later this year. Rebecca Johnson had denied the accusations against husband Dan Johnson, claiming he was a victim of “an assault from the left.” However, they were backed up by an on-the-record interview from the victim, plus pages of police documents that were published by the Kentucky Centre for Investigative Reporting.

U.S. raps ally Albania for 'careless' words on Kosovo

U.S. raps ally Albania for 'careless' words on KosovoThe United States urged Albania on Wednesday to avoid "careless language" after its prime minister suggested a single president and single security policy for both his country and neighboring Kosovo in a speech that infuriated Serbia. Serbia is sensitive to any talk of unification of its former province of Kosovo, which has a majority ethnic Albanian population, and Albania. Addressing Kosovo's parliament on Sunday on the 10th anniversary of the country's independence from Belgrade, Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama said: "Kosovo and Albania will have a single foreign policy and not just the same embassies and diplomatic representations, but why not one president, a symbol of national unity, and one national security policy." Rama later complained that his comments had been taken out of context, but the European Union said they were "not helpful" and Serbia accused the Albanian premier of seeking to build a "Greater Albania" in the region.

NRA chief says gun control advocates 'hate freedom' but fails to address child survivors of Florida shooting

NRA chief says gun control advocates 'hate freedom' but fails to address child survivors of Florida shootingThe head of the National Rifle Association (NRA) Wayne LaPierre has claimed gun control advocates “hate freedom” but failed to directly address the child victims of the latest mass shooting in Florida who have been so vocal in calling for change in the wake of the tragedy. In a fiery speech that was full of deeply divisive language, Mr LaPierre told the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) that Democrats such as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California and Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy were eager to blame the NRA and were calling “for even more government control”. Relying on the old NRA trope of bemoaning the ”elites” who hate the Second Amendment, Mr LaPierre set out a staunch defence of the NRA’s position as he played to the conservative crowd.

Olympic North Korean speed skater appears to try and trip his Japanese rival mid-race

Olympic North Korean speed skater appears to try and trip his Japanese rival mid-raceIn rude Olympic news, a North Korean speed skater received a penalty during his race for appearing to attempt to throw off one of his fellow skaters.  Speed skater Jong Kwang-Bom fell – twice! – during the men's 500 meters heat on Tuesday in Pyeongchang. Jong's first fall came within seconds of starting, prompting the judges to pause the race and restart. On the second round, the skater fell again.

NBC Olympics has video of the falls right here. But for what it's worth, Watanabe is willing to give Jong the benefit of the doubt in this scenario. Speaking to Yahoo Sports  – which erroneously identified him as skater Ryosuke Sakazume – Watanabe said he doesn't believe Jong was purposefully reaching for his skate, and noted that collisions are par for the course in speed skating. "I believe it was unintentional," he said. "His hand happened to be by my skate as he fell down."  This was Jong's first and only Olympics event. Watanabe and Huang Daeheon on Korea went on to qualify. WATCH: Here's how Simone Biles is chasing academic gold
