CAPITOL HILL (AP) - A Republican congressman who has said he warned the speaker of the House about Mark Foley's inappropriate e-mails last spring takes his turn before the House Ethics Committee today.

SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) - President Bush will campaign in Sarasota, Florida, today for Republican congressional candidate Vern Buchanan. He's running for the House seat that Katherine Harris gave up to run for Senate. It's supposed to be a safe Republican district but both Harris and Buchanan trail in the polls.
