The GOP field has expanded once again, with Rick Perry announcing he’s joining the race for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination. And it will continue to grow, with Jeb Bush expected to make his own run official within the next few days. That will make a total of 11 announced candidates — and, as they say, it ain’t over yet! The Democrats, for their part, have also gained a contender. Lincoln Chaffee, the former governor of Rhode Island, announced his run for the Democratic nomination on Wednesday. Rick analyzes the state of play for both sides.

It has eluded 3-year-old thoroughbred race horses for more than a quarter century. The grueling test of three long races in a short five-week span, against the best horses in the country — the last to win all three affirmed in 1978. Belmont Park will be packed with nearly 100,000 fans looking to see whether American Pharoah will be the next to make history. The horse has convincingly won both the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness. Will the mile and a half Belmont prove elusive, or will history be made?

Britain’s postal service, the one the U.S. modeled its own on, is going 100% private. Britain’s treasury chief announced on Thursday that the government will sell its remaining stake in Royal Mail as part of a new $6.9 billion measure designed to bring down the public debt. George Osborne did not offer a precise time frame for the sale of the government’s 30% holding, which is worth an estimated $2.3 billion. He pledged to sell when the government could be sure of getting “value for money” — a nod to the sale of an earlier stake that critics say cost taxpayers millions because it was sold at too low a price. The Conservative-led government sold a majority stake in the service in 2013, putting the system under private control for the first time in its 500-year history.
