LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Republican presidential candidates participating in the undercard debate tonight ended their faceoff on the same national security note with which they began. South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham said if elected president, he'll keep Americans safe. George Pataki cited his experience as New York's governor during the Sept. 11 terror attacks. Mike Huckabee pledged to "fight for your grandkids as much as I would fight for mine." And former Sen. Rick Santorum said President Barack Obama hasn't kept the country safe.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Criticizing Republicans, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton says the American people "cannot give into fear" in the aftermath of attacks in Paris and California. In Minnesota today, she put forth a multi-pronged strategy to protect the homeland and prevent domestic terrorist attacks. Clinton assailed her Republican rivals shortly before the party's latest presidential debate, telling an audience at the University of Minnesota that another ground war reminiscent of conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan would play into the hands of the Islamic State group and fail to keep the U.S. safe.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The police chief in Los Angeles says the threat that prompted today's shutdown of the city's schools described an attack with assault rifles. Chief Charlie Beck says the threat was specific to all of the campuses in the Los Angeles Unified School District. And he says the city takes threats against its schools seriously, particularly since the recent attack in nearby San Bernardino. But New York officials say they received a similar threat and determined that it was a hoax. )

HAVANA (AP) — It's another sign of the warming relations between the United States and Cuba. A group of Cuban-born baseball stars who left their country to earn millions of dollars in the Major Leagues returned to Cuba today. They included Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig and White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu. And they were mobbed by fans at a Havana hotel at the start of a three-day visit. Puig had been barred from returning to Cuba, but was granted special permission for this trip.

SEATTLE (AP) — The founder and CEO of Chipotle says the restaurant chain won't be raising its prices to cover the cost of new food safety procedures. They were put in place after an E. coli outbreak that sickened more than 50 people. CEO Steve Ellis, visiting restaurants in Seattle today, wouldn't say how much the new testing and safety procedures will cost the chain.
