SUN SUNI KHABAR MAY 4TH, 2016
The fight for the Republican nomination was long, hard fought, and bitter. As Donald Trump ran away with state after state, the Republican establishment did everything in their power to stop the New York businessman from becoming the party’s presidential nominee. However, that effort was virtually stopped after Ted Cruz suspended his campaign, narrowing the field to Trump and Ohio governor John Kasich. With Trump almost certain to secure the 1,2237 delegate majority now, the party needs to be able to unite behind their nominee. Reince Priebus, Republican National Chairman, tweeted that Trump will be the presumptive Republican nominee and as such, the party needs to unite against Clinton.
PRINCE BATTLED ADDICTION
A day before he died, rock icon Prince’s team had called an addiction doctor to assist with a ‘grave medical emergency’. Dr. Andrew Kornfeld was sent by his father to Prince’s house in Paisley Park. Unfortunately Kornfeld did not make it in time. Opioids were found with Prince’s body, leading to the presumption that the singer was seeking long term help from the elder Dr. Howard Kornfeld. While Kornfeld himself could not show up, he sent his son Andrew Kornfeld to keep Prince as healthy as possible.
NBA SEMI-FINALS: TRIUMPH AND DEFEAT
The Eastern and Western conference semi-finals for the NBA playoffs began a few days ago, with the Spurs-Thunder matchup generating the most hype. However, it was Miami and Toronto that had a game to remember yesterday. Kyle Lowry hit a miracle buzzer-beater shot from half court, bringing the game level in the dying embers of the fourth quarter and forcing overtime. However, the Raptors were unable to finish the job, allowing Dwyane Wade to tally 11 points, and succumbing to the Heat’s driving offense. Miami won the game 102-96, taking a 1-0 series lead.
SANDERS: ‘WE FIGHT AN UPHILL BATTLE’
With 93% of the precincts in Indiana reporting, Bernie Sanders leads Hillary Clinton 52% to 47%. Despite this victory, Sanders still needs more delegates than are available to gain the nomination, meaning that the Vermont Senator will need the support of super delegates in the homestretch. He defends his decision to remain in the race, saying it energizes young voters and increases turnout, as well as participation in the political process. However, Clinton does not see Sanders as a threat. In Indiana, the former Secretary of State spent nothing on her campaign, whereas the Vermont Senator spent close to $2 million. Clinton seems to be focusing her energy towards the general election where she is likely to face Donald Trump.
