Speaking on a conference call today, the 2012 Republican nominee insisted that he could win the nomination but that it would be a "difficult test and a hard fight." He's having dinner with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who was among his staunchest backers during the 2012 race.

The five detainees have been in Qatar (GUH'-tur) since being released last year in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl (boh BURG'-dahl). Yesterday, Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said the men have been in touch with members of the al-Qaida linked Haqqani (hah-KAH'-nee) network.
