Healthcare.gov cost $840 million, study finds

Washington (CNN) - The cost of developing the initially-troubled website Healthcare.Gov ballooned to $840 million due to poor planning and management by the federal government, a government audit found.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which oversaw the error-plagued website launch, “incurred significant cost increases, schedule slips, and delayed system functionality” because of poor oversight of the project, according to a report by the Government Accountability Office released Thursday.

Clinton reflects on goals in New York speech

New York (CNN) - Hillary Clinton said she worked to expand the United States' international reach and reputation during her tenure at the State Department, as she reflected on her time leading the agency during a Thursday speech.

While Clinton spoke admiringly of President George W. Bush's PEPFAR program to combat the AIDS virus in Africa, she said part of her mission at State had been to restore prominence to agencies like the U.S. Agency for International Development, which promotes health and economic development abroad.

First on CNN: Republican group ties Clinton to Obama handling on Ukraine

Updated 2:57 p.m. ET 3/5/2014

Washington (CNN) – As Hillary Clinton made waves for her remarks about Russian incursions into Ukraine, a Republican super PAC sought to tie the former secretary of state to the Obama administration's handling of the unfolding crisis.

A 30-second web video by America Rising PAC stitches together public statements by then-Secretary of State Clinton and President Barack Obama on their attempted reset of U.S. relations with Russia. The video includes a 2009 meeting when Clinton famously presented Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov with a red "reset" button to signify the start of closer ties between the two superpowers.

Romney breaks tradition with Election Day campaigning

Columbus, Ohio (CNN) – Mitt Romney will not spend the final hours of the presidential race in his hometown, as is traditional for a candidate, but instead will embark upon a last-minute push for votes in Ohio and Pennsylvania.

The two Election Day campaign stops, which were added to the schedule Monday afternoon, cap off a campaign season of upheaval, unconventional moves and late-in-the-game surges that make Tuesday's outcome difficult to predict.
