State Representative Russell Fry of South Carolina is mounting a primary challenge against U.S. Representative Tom Rice, saying the Republican's vote to impeach former President Donald Trump broke his constituents' trust, the Associated Press reported. "He campaigned with President Trump and worked with President Trump and was always willing to use President Trump's name for his reelection purposes, but he broke that trust," Fry told the AP on Thursday. Rice had consistently supported Trump until voting to impeach him in January. The congressman told the AP that "it hurts my heart" to have voted against the president. For more reporting from the Associated Press, see below: "I think the people of the Grand Strand and the Pee Dee deserve someone they can trust again, and I think I'm that person," Fry said. Rice was among 10 GOP representatives who joined Democrats on January 13 in voting to impeach Trump for his role in the violence a week earlier at the U.S. Capitol. … [Read more...] about S.C. lawmaker mounts challenge to Rep.

The Treasury Department runs into an important deadline this weekend, when a 2019 suspension of the government's debt limit — known as the debt ceiling — expires Saturday. That forces the Treasury Department to perform what are called "extraordinary measures" so the government can continue paying its obligations as lawmakers prepare to face off over the issue moving forward. The debt ceiling is the amount the Treasury can borrow on behalf of the public. Raising or suspending that borrowing limit does not dictate how much money the government spends, but allows the U.S. to pay what has already been approved. The debt ceiling was suspended in 2019 under President Donald Trump. On Friday, the Treasury Department started taking its "extraordinary measures" ahead of the looming deadline and warned congressional leaders in a recent letter that the Treasury will need to start taking additional steps starting Monday to keep the U.S. from defaulting on its obligations if congressional … [Read more...] about The United States suspended its debt ceiling in 2019.

The Columbus Blue Jackets are eliminating any doubts that they’re going all-in this season. Meanwhile, the Ottawa Senators are going all-out … as in, trading everyone out. One day after the Blue Jackets sent a bunch of assets to Ottawa for Matt Duchene , the two teams made another significant swap on Saturday. The Blue Jackets landed another Senators center in Ryan Dzingel , while picks are the biggest takeaways for the Senators. The Ottawa Sun’s Bruce Garrioch and Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman are among those who reported these full trade terms, which were later confirmed : Blue Jackets receive: Ryan Dzingel, Calgary Flames’ 2019 seventh-round pick. Senators get: Anthony Duclair , 2020 second-rounder, 2021 second-rounder. Dzingel’s strange mix Honestly, my intentional reaction was that the Senators won big here, and that Dzingel’s numbers have been pumped up by playing on a team that needed all the offensive help it can get. Yet, at the same time, … [Read more...] about Trade: Blue Jackets load up with Dzingel; Senators load up on picks | ProHockeyTalk | NBC Sports
In this week’s edition of the PHT Power Rankings we take a look at 10 players, coaches, and general managers who are going to have a significant impact on the playoff race in the second half of the 2018-19 NHL season. The playoff race in the Western Conference is a jumbled mess where pretty much every team outside of the Los Angeles Kings and Chicago Blackhawks still has reason to believe they can make the playoffs, while the Eastern Conference is, with one or two exceptions, down to deciding seeding and division leaders. Goalies, as they usually do, will play the biggest role in what happens for several teams, but do not forget the general managers that have some huge decisions to make when it comes to their rosters. Basically what we are looking for this week is which individual people will be the most impactful on the second half playoff race, whether it be due to their play on the ice or the decisions they have to make. To the rankings! 1. Jarmo Kekalainen, Columbus Blue … [Read more...] about PHT Power Rankings: 10 people who will impact NHL playoff race | ProHockeyTalk | NBC Sports
Well, the Columbus Blue Jackets have made a trade involving a goalie. No, Sergei Bobrovsky hasn’t been traded, but they’ve landed veteran Keith Kinkaid from the New Jersey Devils for a fifth-round pick in 2022. What does this have to do with Bobrovsky? Probably nothing. Let’s be honest, the odds of a fifth-rounder eventually panning out are slim. On top of that, the Devils will only make the pick in four NHL Entry Drafts from now, so they basically gave up next to nothing to get a goalie that has played in 82 games over the last two seasons and two more in the playoffs. No matter what your opinion of Kinkaid is as a goalie, that’s a price you simply can’t pass up if you’re looking to add depth between the pipes. The 29-year-old is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season, so they can walk away from him on July 1st if they want to.
