Eyeing a political comeback, Sarah Palin gets a frosty reception from her one-time Senate endorsees: 'That'll be up to the people of Alaska'

  Eyeing a political comeback, Sarah Palin gets a frosty reception from her one-time Senate endorsees: 'That'll be up to the people of Alaska' Among several senators whose careers Palin helped launch, only Rand Paul told Insider they were prepared to endorse her new congressional bid.But now that Palin's attempting a political comeback of her own — unexpectedly launching a campaign for the special election to fill the at-large Alaska House seat left by the late Rep. Don Young — many of the Republican senators she helped to elevate told Insider at the Capitol that they aren't yet sure if they'll return the favor.

The state of Nebraska on Wednesday filed a lawsuit in an effort to stop the city of Omaha from enforcing a mask mandate, as the number of COVID-19 cases in the Cornhusker State continue to rise.

The lawsuit, filed by Attorney General Doug Peterson and Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services Director Gary Anthone, asks for an immediate hearing and demands that local officials are barred from enforcing the mandate.

Top QB prospect Arch Manning reportedly visited Virginia

  Top QB prospect Arch Manning reportedly visited Virginia Manning reportedly met with coach Tony Elliott and attended some meetings during the visit. Manning does have family ties at Virginia. His sister goes to school there, and his mother is a graduate. However, this does not sound like a family visit if he was meeting with the head coach.Elliott may be key to Manning’s visit. The new Virginia coach had been recruiting Manning when he was offensive coordinator at Clemson. That may have drawn Manning to take a visit.Virginia is still a clear long shot for Manning.

Douglas County Health Director Lindsay Huse signed the mask mandate on Jan. 11, and it became effective after midnight the following day. It requires mask wearing in all premises open to the public for individuals five year or older, with some exceptions.

Peterson and Anthone argue that the Omaha mask mandate is unlawful because Huse exceeded her authority in enforcing it, and because the statute is in violation of state law.

In a statement regarding the mandate, however, Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert wrote that while she does not agree with Huse's decision to enforce the mask mandate, the health director "has the authority to do so under City Code."

The mandate is set to remain in effect until positive case counts in Omaha are below 200 people per 100,000 for a seven day total, and until hospital capacity is at or below 85 percent for seven consecutive days.
