Here's the latest on the conservative front:

In a concerning development, an Indiana school board has voted to keep a controversial LGBT book, "All Boys Aren't Blue," in a high school library, despite its graphic depictions of underage sexual encounters and incest. The 3-2 vote by the Carmel Clay school board has sparked outrage among parents and community members who argue that such explicit content is inappropriate for minors. The book, which has been challenged by local resident Cindy Black, contains disturbing scenes of incest, sodomy, and other explicit sexual acts. The decision to retain the book in the school library has been met with criticism, with many questioning the judgment of the school board.

Meanwhile, the Department of Justice (DOJ) has hit back at Republican speculation about coordination with the Manhattan District Attorney's office in the ongoing investigation into former President Donald Trump. In a letter to the House Judiciary Committee, the DOJ denied any improper coordination with the Manhattan DA's office and stated that it would not interfere with the ongoing investigation. The letter comes as Republicans have raised concerns about the politicization of the investigation and the potential for it to be used as a weapon against Trump in the upcoming 2024 presidential election.

In other news, the power of former President Donald Trump's endorsement will be put to the test in Tuesday's primaries, with his preferred candidates facing tough battles across the country. Trump has endorsed candidates in Senate, House, and gubernatorial primaries in Maine, Nevada, North Dakota, and South Carolina. The primaries come less than two weeks after Trump was convicted of 34 felony counts in the New York hush money case. Despite the conviction, Trump remains a powerful force in the Republican Party, with his endorsement coveted by candidates seeking to shore up support among the GOP base.


In South Carolina, Trump has endorsed Rep. Nancy Mace, who had previously been critical of him, as she faces a well-funded primary opponent in attorney Catherine Templeton. Mace has since become an ardent supporter of Trump and won his endorsement for re-election. Trump has also backed another incumbent facing a primary challenge: South Carolina Rep. William Timmons in the 4th District, which includes heavily evangelical parts of the state in Greenville and Spartanburg. Timmons is facing state Rep. Adam Morgan, who has endorsements from hard-right members of Congress such as Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida and House Freedom Caucus Chairman Bob Good of Virginia.

In Nevada, Trump has endorsed military veteran Sam Brown in the crowded GOP Senate primary, where the winner will face Democratic Sen. Jacky Rosen in one of the top Senate races in the country. Brown is seen as the party-preferred pick to take on Rosen and has far outraised his opponents. However, Trump's endorsement may be muted by the fact that he waited until the weekend before the primary to announce his pick in a state that largely votes by mail.

In North Dakota, Trump has endorsed former North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee in the competitive 4th District to take on Democratic Rep. Steven Horsford. The state hasn't elected a Democratic governor since the 1988 election and Trump won it in 2020 by more than 40 percentage points. Trump's endorsement is also on the line in the state's GOP primary for governor, where the winner will replace GOP Gov. Doug Burgum, who decided not to run for re-election.

In Maine, Trump has endorsed state Rep. Austin Theriault in the GOP primary for the competitive 2nd District, where Rep. Jared Golden is one of five Democrats running for re-election in a district Trump carried in 2020.

As the primaries approach, Trump's endorsement power will be put to the test, with his preferred candidates facing tough battles across the country. Despite the challenges, Trump remains a powerful force in the Republican Party, with his endorsement coveted by candidates seeking to shore up support among the GOP base.
