Vance wins Ohio Senate primary, handing Trump key victory, scoring the nomination after a brutal race and handing former President Trump a key victory after a late endorsement.

Biden rolls out new China policy with Blinken’s Asian tour: Jim W. Dean
– “So here we are with an arms race still rolling on, which to a degree is a no win situation for countries because there is no end to having enough.”
