McCain says report on lobbyist not true
John McCain emphatically denied a romantic relationship with a female telecommunications lobbyist on Thursday and said a report by The New York Times suggesting favoritism for her clients is "not true."
"I'm very disappointed in the article. It's not true," the likely Republican presidential nominee said as his wife, Cindy, stood beside him during a news conference called to address the matter.
"I've served this nation honorably for more than half a century," said McCain, a four-term Arizona senator and former Navy pilot. "At no time have I ever done anything that would betray the public trust."

Obama, Clinton debate tonight in Texas
Democratic presidential candidates Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton square off tonight in another debate. It's being held in a gym at the University of Texas at Austin.
Both candidates have been crisscrossing the state in advance of the March 4th, delegate-rich Texas primary.
Obama leads in the overall hunt for delegates to next summer's nominating convention. He's won the last 11 state contests in a row.
The Associated Press delegate count shows Obama in front with 1,351 delegates to Clinton's 1,262. It takes 2,025 delegates to win the Democratic nomination.

Wolves to be removed from species list
Gray wolves in the Northern Rockies will be removed from the endangered species list, following a 13-year restoration effort that helped the animal's population soar, federal officials said Thursday.
An estimated 1,500 wolves now roam Idaho, Montana and Wyoming. That represents a dramatic turnaround for a predator that was largely exterminated in the United States in the early 20th century.
"We're confident the wolf has a secure future in the Northern Rocky Mountains," said Interior Assistant Secretary Lyle Laverty in a statement. Federal officials planned a news conference later Thursday.

Airman dies in collision during training
Air Force investigators were trying to determine the cause of an apparent collision of two fighter jets that killed one pilot during a training exercise.
The single-seat F-15C Eagles crashed Wednesday into the Gulf of Mexico, said Col. Todd Harmer, commander of the 33rd Fighter Wing, 58th Fighter Squadron. The pilots had ejected and were rescued, but one died later.
The base has suffered a "great loss," Harmer said in an e-mailed statement. "We will continue to do everything we can to assist our families and airmen at this tragic time."

Ex-inmate crusades against judge nominee
A private prison company executive nominated to become a federal judge has run into a determined opponent — a former inmate. President Bush in June nominated Gustavus A. Puryear IV, chief lawyer with Corrections Corporation of America, to become a U.S. district judge in Nashville. That led Alex Friedmann, who spent six years at the company's prison in Clifton, Tenn., to investigate Puryear's qualifications. He looked up every case where Puryear was listed on the docket as counsel.
