Police officers look at a piece of debris outside the police headquarters in the southeastern Turkish city of Gaziantep on May 1, 2016 after a bomb exploded, killing at least one policemanA car bomb Sunday hit the Turkish city of Gaziantep, a major refugee hub near the Syrian border, killing at least one policeman and wounding 13 people, with the country on edge after a succession of militant attacks. In a separate attack in the province of Mardin to the east, three Turkish soldiers died in an ambush by Kurdish militants who have killed hundreds of members of the security forces in a renewed insurgency since last year. Gaziantep regional governor Ali Yerlikaya said in a statement quoted by the state-run Anatolia news agency that nine of those wounded in the attack in the city were police and the explosion was caused by a car bomb.

FILE - In this April 29, 2016 file photo Republican presidential candidate, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, accompanied by vice-presidential candidate Carly Fiorina, speaks during a campaign stop in Indianapolis. When Fiorina speaks to the California Republican party convention at a hotel outside San Francisco airport Saturday night it will be a homecoming of sorts for the newly-minted vice presidential candidate. Fiorina grew up in the Bay Area and became chief executive officer of Hewlett Packard there before plunging into politics with an unsuccessful run against Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer in 2010. (AP Photo/Darron Cummings, File)BURLINGAME, Calif. (AP) — When Carly Fiorina spoke at the California Republican Party convention at a hotel outside San Francisco airport, it was a brief homecoming of sorts for the newly minted vice presidential candidate.

FILE - In this April 28, 2016 file photo, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks in Evansville, Ind. After toying with gender politics off and on during the campaign, Donald Trump is all in on a mission to undercut Hillary Clinton’s credentials by syncing up his say-anything campaign strategy with his alpha-male persona. (AP Photo/Darron Cummings, File)BURLINGAME, Calif. (AP) — The Republican Party in California has been riven for decades between those who want to tack to the ideological center to expand its diminishing appeal and those who want it to enforce conservative purity. But the prospect of Donald Trump clinching the nomination in the Golden State has scrambled the party's political fault lines in advance of its pivotal June primary, forging unexpected alliances that blur those longstanding divisions.
