By Andrea Shalal WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Air Force may miss its target of August 2016 to start using the Lockheed Martin Corp F-35 fighter jet in combat if Congress blocks the service's plan to retire its A-10 tank-killer aircraft, a top U.S. general said Thursday.

Rand Paul: The GOP brand "sucks"
Thursday, 30 October 2014 21:18
Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, likened the Republican party to Domino's Pizza Wednesday when he declared that the party's image "sucks." "Remember Domino's Pizza? They admitted, 'Hey, our pizza crust sucks.' The Republican Party brand sucks, and so people don't want to be a Republican, and for 80 years, African-Americans have had nothing to do with Republicans," Paul said Thursday while campaigning at a Republican field office in the Sherwood Forest neighborhood of Detroit, according to…

Thursday, 30 October 2014 19:17
By Steve Holland PORTLAND Me. (Reuters) - Wistful about fighting his last campaign, President Barack Obama touted a burst of U.S. economic growth on Thursday to try to limit Democratic losses in next week's elections, in a speech at one of the few voter rallies he is attending.

"Women's issues" dominate Colo. Senate race
Thursday, 30 October 2014 18:17
DENVER - Republican Cory Gardner and Democrat Mark Udall will tell you the economy is issue number one. But their ads tell a different story. One says: "Congressman Gardner led a crusade that would make birth control illegal." Senator Udall won the women's vote by 15 points six years ago. But polls show a smaller gap this time and the need for their support to win. So for months, Udall has been hammering Gardner for…
