The Powerball jackpot for Saturday’s drawing has hit $700 million dollars the largest jackpot in U.S. history. And players are going crazy for tickets. Lines have been forming at gas stations and convenience stores. Store workers say the lines tend to build during the morning commute, but they expect lines to be very long Friday afternoon, due in large part to it being pay day for many Americans.

There has been a lot of discussion this week regarding President Obama’s offensive on gun control, and his move with executive actions, albeit varying opinions on exactly how much impact those executive actions will have. Thursday night on CNN, the president made his case in a town hall setting. The NRA declined to participate, calling it a public relations spectacle orchestrated by the White House. And there has been criticism that the audience at the George Mason University event was “invitation only.” Nonetheless, get the recap this morning. And late tonight, a senior adviser to Carson confirms to ABC News that House conservatives reached out to Carson in 2014 about the possibility of replacing John Boehner. Carson turned down the offer because he was gearing up his run for president.

It seems like only yesterday that skeptics of Barack Obama’s birth in Hawaii rushed to the Supreme Court to try to block the son of an American mother and Kenyan father from taking office as president. The justices turned away those challenges as fast as they arrived at the courthouse door, much as lower courts did. Seven years later, Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz is dealing with pointed remarks from rival Donald Trump that Cruz’s birth in Canada to an American mother and Cuban father raises doubt about his eligibility to be president and could dog his campaign for the White House.
