It’s been 400 years since the first slave ship landed on shores of what would become the United States of America. This week, a look at how the New York Times Magazine commemorated the moment, and the lasting impact it could have on the reframing of American history.

  JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Texas Sen. Ted Cruz won't ask for a recount of his narrow loss to businessman Donald Trump in Missouri's presidential primary.

Cruz campaign manager Jeff Roe told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the campaign won't request a recount of the March 15 primary.

Trump defeated Cruz by 1,965 votes out of more than 939,000 cast in the Republican primary — a margin of about one-fifth of a percentage point.

Trump will get 37 delegates and Cruz will get 15.

I suppose it is possible for the 2016 presidential campaign to get more strange, and I expect it will.  It is the best reality show ever.  Here are some of the juicy parts:

  • Millions of voters Feeling the Bern
  • Trump and Cruz trading insults – about each other’s wives
  • A Clinton campaign that has been declared too big to fail
  • College students getting the vapors because some mean person chalked the word “Trump” on a sidewalk

Even The Donald and Megan have made up.  You can’t make this stuff up.


Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders got into the presidential race Thursday, becoming Hillary Clinton's first official challenger for the Democratic nomination. His website has a disclaimer: "Paid for by Bernie not the billionaires."

Although he caucuses with the Democrats in the Senate, he's not a registered Democrat — he's actually the longest-serving independent in congressional history. (There's no rule, by the way, barring candidates who are not registered Democrats from running in the Democratic primary.)

This post was updated at 6:10 p.m. ET May 26 to add Sanders' remarks at his official campaign kickoff.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders officially got in the race for president back in April, but he is holding his campaign kickoff Tuesday in Burlington, Vt., where he was once mayor.
