msnbc.com — Alaska Republicans are set to choose a challenger Tuesday to incumbent Democratic Sen. Mark Begich, a race that is crucially important for control of the Senate. The primary campaign has been hard-fought but inconclusive. The most recent polling showed former Alaska attorney general and natural resources commissioner Dan Sullivan ahead in the three-way race, but polls in the state are notoriously unreliable.

A big win on Syrian chemical weapons

msnbc.com — It's been nearly a year since President Obama, poised to launch a military strike in Syria, saw an unexpected breakthrough: the Assad government agreed to give up its chemical weapons and join the international Convention on Chemical Weapons.
