WASHINGTON (AP) — What does former House Speaker John Boehner (BAY'-nur) think of Ted Cruz? Well, for one thing, he calls the Texas senator "Lucifer in the flesh." Boehner adds that he can "get along with almost everyone," but that he's "never worked with a more miserable" individual in his life -- and he tossed a profane reference to Cruz in there as well. The Ohio Republican resigned last fall under pressure from conservatives allied with Cruz. According to the Stanford Daily, Boehner told Stanford University students that he would vote for Trump, but not for Cruz.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Bernie Sanders' wife and adviser Jane Sanders says his campaign will do well in the remaining contests because they are open primaries, which she describes as "more democratic." Jane Sanders pointed out on MSNBC this morning that her husband won Rhode Island on Tuesday, which was an open primary, allowing independents as well as Democrats to vote for him. She also said that his campaign intends to continue through the final contest in California, despite a revelation yesterday that the campaign plans to lay off hundreds of field staffers and other aides.
