Ask National Rifle Association executives what the last year and a half has looked like for them – even after a series of horrific gun rampages dominated headlines. They’ll tick off a long list of triumphs in rapid fire: They've gained 1 million new members, more than half of all states have expanded gun rights and they helped block a federal expansion of background checks in Congress.
Moms headed to Capitol Hill hope to outflank one of the top lobbying groups in the country.

A day after President Barack Obama took a victory lap on his signature health care law meeting a critical sign-up threshold, 2016 presidential Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana touted his own alternative proposal.

A new report outlining the potential environmental effects of the polarizing Keystone XL pipeline project leaves the door open to a decision either way by the Obama administration, despite positive spin from both advocates and detractors.

President Barack Obama heads into his State of the Union address Tuesday night with a varied agenda – trying to get things done, trying to convince Republicans to support some of his initiatives and trying to lay down potential election themes for Democrats headed into 2014.

In an unprecedented move for the league, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has banned Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling from NBA activities for life, charged him the maximum fine of $2.5 million and will urge the NBA Board of Governors to force Sterling to sell his team. The punishment comes in response to an audio tape that surfaced Friday of Sterling making racist comments to his girlfriend, V. Stiviano.
<u></u>NBA Commissioner Adam Silver says the league will seek the maximum punishment for Sterling's remarks.<br />

Though his victory lap turned into an apology tour, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is still paying off for Republicans as the new chairman of the Republican Governors Association. The Christie-helmed group raised $6 million in January, more than double any previous January, according to Gail Gitcho, communications director for the RGA.
The embattled New Jersey governor stills earns for RGA despite bridge scandal.

President Barack Obama focused much of his fifth State of the Union address on cheerleading the country's future as well as how he aims to take advantage of the ever-improving economy to narrow the gap between the haves and the have-nots.

They were considered the elite, the leaders of the Republican Party. The adults in the room. The guys moneymen could back. Todd Akin might put his foot in his mouth about rape, Rand Paul might be put on defense about comments about the constitutionality of the Civil Rights Act, but these guys – they were conservative and could be trusted at a podium in front of reporters.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie spent nearly two hours last week answering questions about his administration's hand in a political plot to create a traffic snarl in Fort Lee by closing down lanes on the George Washington Bridge to Manhattan.
