WASHINGTON (AP) — House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has met with hard-right Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene. Their session on Tuesday night came as Republicans wrestled over how to handle a bipartisan outcry over her embrace of outlandish conspiracy theories like suggestions that mass shootings at the nation’s schools were staged. Aides to McCarthy and Greene offered no immediate comment after the two spent around 90 minutes together in his Capitol office. The GOP is facing unrest from opposing ends of the Republican spectrum over Greene and Rep. Liz Cheney, who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump. Both situations underscore GOP fissures as the party seeks its pathway without Trump.
In the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock feature, Cameron Wilkinson continued his success at Off Road Speedway by picking up his fourth win of the season. firstname.lastname@example.org By Randy Pospishil NORFOLK, Neb. (June 22) – Cameron Meyer earned his first win of the season at Off Road Speedway and second victory overall in Saturday’s Karl Kustoms Northern SportMod feature, after a battle with Wes Hochstein in the race’s final five laps. The two started the race side-by-side in the third row and chased last week’s feature winner Jonathan Jensen for nine laps before Hochstein took over the lead. “To replace the motor in the car, it came down to time and people first of all,” Meyer said. “We picked up the new motor Monday morning and had it in the car and running Tuesday night.” Meyer said he benefited in multiple ways from his third-place finish a week ago in a car borrowed from Colby Langenberg. “We tried to replicate some stuff this week in my car that I felt in (Colby’s) car that I liked; I can’t say it was 100 percent close but it got the job done tonight,” he said. “We tried some stuff we had never done on a car. This was the unknown going out there tonight. We didn’t know what it was going to do, but it ran good on the bottom and ran good up on the top.” Meyer then passed Hochstein coming out of a caution and restart with five laps left, but Hochstein returned to the front with three laps remaining, holding on until Meyer picked up momentum on the inside coming out of turn two and again as he moved through turns three and four on the final lap to grab the win. read more
