Romney under Attack before New Hampshire Primary Mitt Romney 's ahead in the polls in New Hampshire, where voters will choose the first Republican convention delegates tomorrow. He's also leading in South Carolina and Florida, which are coming up before the end of this month. But many Republicans are still looking for an alternative. Will Independents, who make up 40 percent of tomorrow's vote, help Jon Huntsman emerge from the pack? Will they set the stage for a single anti-Romney candidate in South Carolina or Florida?

Romney under Attack before New Hampshire Primary The day before New Hampshire will chose the first convention delegates, Mitt Romney is still the man to beat. He's leading in South Carolina and Florida too, which are coming up before the end of this month. But many Republicans are still looking for an alternative. The rest of the field is hoping that, "anything can happen," and the lack of enthusiasm on the far right indicates it just might. We hear about this weekend's debates, Jon Huntsman 's gain in the polls and the scathing attack documentary circulated by Newt Gingrich supporters. Can Romney hold on with the carefully calculated rhetoric of campaign consultants? Is it already too late for an anti-Romney consensus?

Trump's 'America First' goes missing abroad In the Middle East, President Trump is changing some policies of the Obama Administration—and reversing his own campaign attacks on Islam as a religion that "hates us." We hear about his visit to Saudi Arabia and what's at stake for the rest of his foreign excursion.
Ex-FBI Director Comey tells his side of the story Today, former FBI Director James Comey came close to calling the President who fired him a liar. The White House denied the claim and called it insulting, but Republican Senators did not challenge Comey’s truthfulness. Many questions remain: did the President try to obstruct a federal investigation? Later, we’ll go behind the “velvet rope” for a look at 5-Star health care for the richest Americans.
Terrorism and tweets, hate speech and murder Just days before an election, Britain is coping with a rash of deadly terrorism, and Prime Minister Theresa May is on the defensive. And again today, President Trump has tweeted criticism of the Mayor of London. Later, a double murder in Portland, Oregon has revealed the ugly past of a supposedly “progressive” city. One immediate question: is “hate speech” protected by the First Amendment?
The Trump agenda: where's the beef? President Trump says big things are happening. After celebrating a House bill on health care, he doesn’t yet have Senate agreement. With James Comey’s public testimony scheduled tomorrow, the President today tweeted his selection of a new FBI Director. Is the Chief Executive all style and no substance? Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
