The latest news on New Orleans
A new USA Today/Gallup Poll out today shows Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama in a statistical tie in New Hampshire. Both candidates were the picks of 32 percent of voters surveyed; John Edwards came in a distant third, at 18 percent. On the Republican side, John McCain is slowly chipping away at Mitt Romney's lead: Romney now leads McCain by only 7 points, 34 to 27 percent.
The path was a long one, but federal prosecutors secured guilty pleas this week for three individuals who had illegally sold firearms to criminals at a notorious New Orleans gun shop.
