RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina's governor launched a two-part strategy to end protracted litigation over the state's so-called bathroom bill and its replacement. Democratic Gov.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina's largest health insurer says President Donald Trump's recent move to cut off "Obamacare" payments to insurers won't affect its average 14 percent price increase on individual policies for next year.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Associated Press is speaking with families who lost loved ones in military service since Donald Trump became president. More than a half-dozen say they did not hear from Trump about their loss. Several spoke of being comforted by Trump but at least one call went awry: Cowanda Jones-Johnson told the AP that Trump spoke disrespectfully of her fallen nephew, Sgt. La David Johnson, who was among four servicemen killed in Niger earlier this month.
