Getting serious

Unlike several previous Republican presidential debates, last night's face-off in Miami had a more serious tone as the rivals clashed over some of the biggest issues facing the country ahead of next week's critical, winner-take-all primaries.

Trump's war

Donald Trump suggested during the debate he'd support deploying a large U.S. ground force to take on ISIS. That's seen as a shift for the GOP front-runner, who's often portrayed himself as less hawkish than his Republican rivals.

Local pitch

With a surprising loss in Michigan behind her, Hillary Clinton has hopscotched across the country to get out the vote in Florida, North Carolina and Illinois. At each stop she delivered a distinctly localized pitch, carefully crafted to touch voters who will cast ballots on March 15.


The Wounded Warrior Project board of directors has fired the charity's two top executives following a CBS News investigation that found it was spending more than double on overheads -- including extravagant parties -- compared to other veterans charities.

Deadly floods

The killer storm system punishing the South unleashed another round of torrential rain overnight. Thousands have been forced from their homes in Louisiana, and we rode along with the National Guard as its troops tried to lend a hand in Bossier Parish.

"Deflategate" science

Science could help prove Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's innocence in the "deflategate" scandal. The evidence comes from an unlikely source: a 7th grader outside Boston. The 12-year-old says the NFL could have avoided controversy if it had just done an experiment, like he did.

Female flight

Air India is celebrating a possible world record on a flight to the United States.The airline says a trip this week from New Delhi to San Francisco is the longest-ever with all women pilots. In the U.S., women make up only about 6.5 percent of all pilots.

High stakes

The annual NCAA men's basketball tournament is a money machine, with Americans betting more on March Madness games than any event besides the Super Bowl. But many -- if not most -- gamblers end up taking a hit. So, too, do businesses nationwide that see a big drop in productivity.
