ASHLAND, Ky. (AP) — A federal judge in Kentucky says the oath he took to become a judge takes precedence over his own religious beliefs. And Judge David Bunning says the same holds true for Kim Davis, the Rowan County clerk who has refused to issue marriage licenses since the Supreme Court legalized gay marriage. The judge today ordered Davis to jail until she complies with his order to issue the licenses. She argues that her Christian faith should exempt her from signing the licenses.

NEW YORK (AP) — Donald Trump says he has signed a Republican loyalty pledge to back the GOP's 2016 nominee for president and skip a potential third-party bid. The billionaire businessman and presidential candidate roiled the GOP race when he refused to make such a promise in the campaign's first debate. The front-runner was the only candidate on stage not to make the commitment. A third-party bid by Trump could harm the GOP's efforts to take back the White House.

FOX LAKE, Ill. (AP) — Authorities believe they've recovered video that will help the investigation into who killed a police officer in northern Illinois. They say a private resident came forward with the video from a home security system. It's been turned over to the Department of Homeland Security, because it requires specialized technology to view it. A sheriff's official says the resident told investigators it shows three people near the scene of Tuesday's killing in the village of Fox Lake.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Corey Booker of New Jersey is the latest Democrat to support the Iran nuclear deal. He'd been pressured by New Jersey's Jewish community to oppose the deal. And New Jersey's other senator, Democrat Bob Menendez, is against it. Yesterday, supporters clinched the number of votes they'll need to uphold President Barack Obama's veto, if necessary, of a resolution of disapproval.

NEW YORK (AP) — New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft says his team can finally return its focus from "Deflategate" to the game on the field. He says he's grateful for what he calls the "thoughtful" decision by U.S. District Judge Richard Berman to overturn the NFL's four-game suspension of Tom Brady over underinflated footballs in a playoff game last season. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says he will appeal the ruling. But the NFL says it won't seek an emergency stay -- so Brady will be able to play while an appeals court considers the case.
