    Iowa Poll: Clinton Maintains Lead Over Sanders

    WASHINGTON  — Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton leads her competition among Iowa Democrats, but likely caucus-goers believe Bernie Sanders is the best candidate for the economy, a new poll says.

McDonald was a black teenager. He was gunned down by Jason Van Dyke, a white Chicago officer, in October 2014. Van Dyke […]

The Russian plane was warned numerous times beforehand, Turkish President Recep […]

    Voices from the Heartland: Fear and Hope in Iowa Community Where Syrians Settled

    CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa — The small white building is inconspicuous except for its shuttered windows adorned with painted mint-green domes. A silver crescent catches the sun above the door as men with beards and women with their bodies covered from head to toe enter. It’s a mosque, nestled in the most unlikeliest of places, in the heartland of America, not far from emblematic cornfields that make this city the largest producer of ethanol in the world. Built in 1932 with […]
