NEW YORK (AP) — With their champion, Sen. Ted Cruz, now out of the presidential race, groups opposing abortion and same-sex marriage say they'll bide their time and warily assess Donald Trump before deciding whether to back him as the Republican nominee.
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (Reuters) - A top Republican lawmaker in North Carolina said the state would not be "bullied" by the U.S. Justice Department into meeting a Monday deadline to change a new law regulating which bathrooms transgender people can use. "We will take no action by Monday," House Speaker Tim Moore told reporters in Raleigh on Thursday, the day after the federal government told the state that the law enacted in March violated the U.S. Civil Rights Act. The Justice Department said North Carolina was discriminating against transgender state employees and it had until Monday to say whether it would remedy the violations.
