National Public Radio Stories

  • McCain Moves Ahead; Democrats in Tight Battle
    Sen. John McCain builds momentum in the Republican presidential race, winning most of Super Tuesday's big prizes, including delegate-rich California. The Democratic race remains close, with Sen. Barack Obama winning more states but Sen. Hillary Clinton ahead in the delegate count.
  • Giuliani's Departure Shifts N.Y., N.J., Conn. Vote
    With former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani out of the race, Republican voters in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut turn to Sen. John McCain.
  • Obama's Big Wins a Sign of 'New South'
    The highest profile black candidate yet to run for president showed substantial power in the Deep South on Tuesday. In Alabama, voters say Sen. Barack Obama's big win offers evidence that the racial divide of the "Old South" has faded.
  • California Goes for Clinton and McCain
    California was the crown jewel in Tuesday's nominating contests and Sen. Hillary Clinton won a comfortable victory there. Meanwhile, Sen. John McCain walked away with all the Republican delegates. Political analyst Sherry Bebitch Jeffe of the University of Southern California talks with Renee Montagne about the outcome in the Golden State.
  • Spat with Vatican Looms over Vote in Spain
    Election day in Spain is less than six weeks away, but instead of battling its usual political opponents, Spain's ruling party has locked horns with an unlikely political foe — the Vatican.
  • McCain Gains; Romney Sags; Clinton Edges Ahead
    Tuesday's big Republican winner was John McCain, Mitt Romney's relatively weak performance leaves him hobbled going forward. Mike Huckabee made a strong enough showing to keep running. On the Democratic side, Barack Obama may find himself playing catch-up in his race with Hillary Clinton.
  • Missouri Voters Reflect on Tight Democratic Race
    The outcome of the Democratic race in Missouri is too close to call early Wednesday. In Clayton, voters offer their perspectives on the two candidates, Sen. Hillary Clinton and Sen. Barack Obama.
  • Asian Markets Show Fresh Volatility
    More gloomy economic news from the United States — a report that the service sector shrank for the first time since March 2003 — sends Asian markets tumbling Wednesday.
  • Coke Takes a Stake in Honest Tea
    Coca-Cola is branching out into the bottled iced-tea market. The soft drink company has acquired a 40 percent stake in Honest Tea for about $43 million.
  • Some Businesses Benefit from Weak Dollar
    The dollar's fall against the euro and other foreign currencies has hurt American tourists overseas and boosted the cost of imported goods. But the weaker greenback may not be all bad for U.S. businesses and the economy.
