Top congressman sets bar for military strike on North Korea

(CNN) - The United States would be right to launch a military strike against North Korea if there is "solid evidence" that it plans to attack America or South Korea, a congressional Republican influential on national security matters said on Tuesday.

"If we have good reason to believe there's going to be an attack, I believe we have the right to take preemptive action," Rep. Peter King of New York said on CNN's "Erin Burnett OutFront."

Final House race of 2012 settled with Boustany win


(CNN) - Rep. Charles Boustany defeated Rep. Jeff Landry in the final unsettled U.S. House race of the 2012 campaign on Saturday, according to unofficial election results from the Louisiana secretary of state.

The 2010 census cost Louisiana a seat, and redistricting led to the two Republican incumbents facing off in a head-to-head bid for re-election.
