Overnight Healthcare: Activists sharpen abortion attacks after O-Care report

Anti-abortion rights groups are deploying new attacks on some of the Senate's most vulnerable Democrats, after a watchdog report that more than 1,000 ObamaCare plans have covered abortions. Senate Democrats in states like Louisiana, Arkansas and North Carolina will face a double-challenge over abortion and ObamaCare on the campaign trail after the Government Accountability Office said Tuesday that healthcare plans in dozens of states have not followed federal rules that separate abortion charges from other health payments.

U.S. Rep. Alan Nunnelee looks more than capable of continuing his service

One bright spot during the visitation and funeral of Mississippi State University radio broadcaster Jack Cristil was the opportunity to see and talk with my old college classmate and friend, U.S. Rep. Alan Nunnelee of Tupelo. Nunnelee, the Republican former state legislator who is seeking his third term in Congress, has traveled a hard road since our last visit back in March, when my wife and I met Alan and his wife, Torie, for a hamburger after work on a Friday night.

GOP Targets Reid in Senate Campaigns

There are 36 U.S. Senate seats up for election in November but Republicans are focused on just one man - who isn't even on the ballot - to toss from his Capitol Hill perch: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, The Washington Times reports. In races around the country, Reid is "the boogeyman" for the fall campaign and his name is conspicuously peppered into every debate, according to the Times.

Wicker: Foreign policy crises require U.S. leadership

Faced with two separate international crises, America's foreign policy is "in a shambles," U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss., said Friday. Defeating - not just containing - Islamic State militants who have taken over major portions of Iraq is essential, Wicker told the Tupelo Kiwanis Club, and standing up to Russian President Vladimir Putin's expansionism will put the NATO alliance to the test.
