Democrats attack Rand Paul for criticizing Obama abroad

(CNN) – The Democratic National Committee blasted Sen. Rand Paul on Friday for criticizing the President while on a foreign trip.

"America has a proud tradition of letting politics stop at the water’s edge, but Paul doesn’t think that tradition applies to him," Michael Czin, the DNC's press secretary, said in a memo to reporters. “Regardless of political party, we do not go abroad and slam our own because of policy differences.”

The WMUR Granite State Poll indicates Shaheen leads Brown 46% to 44%, with 9% of likely voters undecided. Because the margin is within the survey's sampling error, the candidates are statistically tied.

Rick Perry: It’s possible ISIS has crossed southern border

Washington (CNN) – It’s a “very real possibility” that individuals with the extremist group ISIS may have crossed into the United States at the southern border, Texas Gov. Rick Perry said Thursday, though he added he doesn’t have any evidence.

Because the border is insecure, Perry said that “individuals from ISIS or other terrorist states could be” taking advantage of the situation. “I think it's a very real possibility that they may have already used that,” he told an audience at the Heritage Foundation in Washington.

“We have no clear evidence of that,” he continued.
