Walker a 2016 GOP force; might Govs. Kasich, Snyder jump in?

Walker a 2016 GOP force; might Govs. Kasich, Snyder jump in?

Updated 45 mins ago — 

Wisconsin's Scott Walker has emerged as a force in the 2016 White House contest. It's a position two other Republican governors from the Midwest, lesser known but similarly ambitious, undoubtedly would like to be in.

Like Walker, John Kasich in Ohio and Rick Snyder in Michigan have strong resumes and political successes in states where the GOP often struggles. They offer a distinct form of pragmatic politics that differs sharply from that of their combative counterpart in Wisconsin.

Kasich has taken steps toward a presidential bid, emboldened by the absence of a clear front-runner and by warm reviews from appearances in New Hampshire and South Carolina.

Officials: Arab coalition 'reconnaissance' troops in Yemen

Updated 11 mins ago — 

At least 20 troops from a Saudi-led Arab coalition landed Sunday in Yemen's southern coastal city of Aden on a "reconnaissance" mission amid a fierce Shiite rebel offensive there, Yemeni military officials said.

The objective of the landing, which Saudi officials declined to immediately comment on, was not clear. However, military and security officials repeatedly have said that a ground operation would follow a Saudi-led airstrike campaign after the military capabilities of the Houthi rebels and their allies had been sufficiently weakened.
