“He was, you know, raised white. ... I mean, like most Americans, I was proud that we broke the color barrier when he was elected, but … he didn’t grow up like I grew up.”

— Carson alluding to President Barack Obama’s white mother in a Politico podcast

Ted Cruz

Cruz says the detention center in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, should not be closed as President Barack Obama has proposed.

Cruz also joked about Obama’s planned visit to Cuba next month, saying “it wouldn’t be a terrible thing if he just stayed.”

John Kasich

“You’re Americans before you’re Republicans and Democrats. ... We can fight, we can argue, but it should never be personal because the people of our state, our community and our country depend on us.”

— Kasich on how the strength of the United States rests in its people, not in its government.

— Rubio on President Barack Obama’s effort to close the detention facility in Guantanamo Bay.

“I’m less focused on New York now. ... I started going international and national, which is what we are doing now, and then I did the presidential thing, so that to me is cooler than all of it.”

— Trump in the New York Times online


Hillary Clinton

“I support this deal. I support it as part of a larger strategy toward Iran”

— Clinton will say, according to excerpts of a major speech she’s slated to give Wednesday on the Iran agreement in Washington.

Clinton will put the Iran deal in the context of a broader regional U.S. strategy in the Middle East, and she will break somewhat with the Obama administration by predicting that Iran will not change its bad behavior.

Bernie Sanders

Sanders says Wall Street and billionaire campaign donors have an unfair advantage in the U.S. and it will take a “political revolution” to lessen their political clout.

Tuesday reiterated his belief that Clinton was wrong on the NAFTA trade deal and is too close to Wall Street campaign donors.

Filmmaker Spike Lee endorsed Sanders for president in a S.C. radio ad.
