Congress: A test for the GOP

New York Times: "A major test of how carefully Republicans can navigate the intraparty politics of sexuality will come on Monday, when the Senate holds a crucial vote on a bill to outlaw workplace discrimination against gay men, lesbians and transgender people."

Des Moines Register: Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y) was in Iowa on Saturday night "not because he wants to run for president himself, but to endorse Hillary Clinton for president." Schumer "used the Iowa Democratic Party’s Jefferson Jackson dinner as the platform for his endorsement. 'I have found my 2016 candidate,' he told the audience of about 750 people at Hy-Vee Hall at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines. 'She’s a virtual guarantee to deliver victory for our party in 2016.'"

Reuters: "Hillary Clinton was flattered by an early endorsement by New York Democratic Senator Charles Schumer but has made no decision about running for president in 2016, her office said on Sunday."
