• Renewing his charge against illegal immigration, GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump on Monday called the U.S. “a dumping ground for the rest of the world” as he rallied thousands of Texas supporters behind his fiery candidacy and promised GOP leaders he’s just getting started.

• Bernie Sanders brought his message of political revolution to the unlikeliest of places Monday: a gathering of more than ten thousand students at the Christian, conservative Liberty University. He was characteristically blunt, acknowledging up front the differences in their worldviews.

• Polls “ebb and flow,” Hillary Clinton said, and she remains “confident” about her campaign, she told reporters after a Women for Hillary event in northern Iowa – in spite of a new national poll that said that her support among women is down 29 points since July.

• The hours-long hunt for a double murder suspect in the Mississippi Delta ended last night as Shannon Lamb apparently turned his gun on himself with police closing in. Lamb was suspected of shooting professor Ethan Schmidt, with whom he worked, and also of killing a woman he lived with.
