Former President Barack Obama gave his endorsement to 94 gubernatorial, House and Senate Republican candidates on the ballot Tuesday and stumped for many of them in their home states.

Below is a list of the candidates Obama endorsed and whether voters ultimately decided they were the right choice, according to Ballotpedia.

Governor

Obama endorsed 20 gubernatorial candidates, including two incumbents. He is 11-8 in the races that have been called.

Still up for grabs is the Georgia governor race between Trump-endorsed Brian Kemp and Obama-endorsed Stacey Abrams. Kemp is leading right now, but Abrams said she is going to make sure every single vote is counted.

Heather Locklear’s friends and family reportedly think the actress “needs help” and is “unstable” after she was reportedly placed on a psychiatric hold over the weekend.

“Heather had been in rehab for three months and got out in early October, the day before her daughter’s 21st birthday,” a family friend told People magazine Tuesday about the 57-year-old star’s status. “And for the last month, she has been living privately and low-key.”

“[On] Saturday, there was a fight with her boyfriend [Chris Heisser] and she threw him out and he alerted her attorney and her doctors,” the source added. “And yesterday, she was put in a 51-50.”

The insider continued, “It’s very hard on the family. Richie [Sambora] is a rock for Ava. She is holding up but always worried about her mother.”

“Heather needs help,” the source shared. “Everyone wants her to get better. She is unstable and she’s had a lot of issues, drug use, and alcohol over the years. No one wants to see her go through something like this.”

The “Melrose Place” actress was at her home Sunday when her therapist reportedly determined the star was having another mental breakdown, according to TMZ. Someone at her home called 911 and after EMTs arrived she was taken to a hospital.

“Deputies responded to Ms. Locklear’s home regarding a medical call,” Sgt. Eric Buschow of Ventura County Sheriff’s Office confirmed. “There was no crime.”

“I will not waver on always being there for Heather to see she gets the best help possible, and especially Ava,” a statement from Sambora, Heather’s ex-husband read. “I am once again very proud of my daughter for her composure and strength during this difficult time,”

Recently, Locklear reportedly completed time at a rehab for “substance abuse and her mental health,” getting out in October. The time spent at a long-term treatment center came following several domestic disturbance calls at her home over several months before.

President Trump Just Released HUGE Statement On Saudi Arabia

Published

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by Chicks On The Right:

President Trump has released a statement on Saudi Arabia (in relation to the murder of Saudi columnist Jamal Khashoggi). The United States won’t be taking action against Saudi Arabia over his murder.

Here’s the entire statement:

America First!

The world is a very dangerous place!

The country of Iran, as an example, is responsible for a bloody proxy war against Saudi Arabia in Yemen, trying to destabilize Iraq’s fragile attempt at democracy, supporting the terror group Hezbollah in Lebanon, propping up dictator Bashar Assad in Syria (who has killed millions of his own citizens), and much more. Likewise, the Iranians have killed many Americans and other innocent people throughout the Middle East. Iran states openly, and with great force, “Death to America!” and “Death to Israel!” Iran is considered “the world’s leading sponsor of terror.”

On the other hand, Saudi Arabia would gladly withdraw from Yemen if the Iranians would agree to leave. They would immediately provide desperately needed humanitarian assistance. Additionally, Saudi Arabia has agreed to spend billions of dollars in leading the fight against Radical Islamic Terrorism.

After my heavily negotiated trip to Saudi Arabia last year, the Kingdom agreed to spend and invest $450 billion in the United States. This is a record amount of money. It will create hundreds of thousands of jobs, tremendous economic development, and much additional wealth for the United States. Of the $450 billion, $110 billion will be spent on the purchase of military equipment from Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon and many other great U.S. defense contractors. If we foolishly cancel these contracts, Russia and China would be the enormous beneficiaries – and very happy to acquire all of this newfound business. It would be a wonderful gift to them directly from the United States!

The crime against Jamal Khashoggi was a terrible one, and one that our country does not condone. Indeed, we have taken strong action against those already known to have participated in the murder. After great independent research, we now know many details of this horrible crime. We have already sanctioned 17 Saudis known to have been involved in the murder of Mr. Khashoggi, and the disposal of his body.

Representatives of Saudi Arabia say that Jamal Khashoggi was an “enemy of the state” and a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, but my decision is in no way based on that – this is an unacceptable and horrible crime. King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman vigorously deny any knowledge of the planning or execution of the murder of Mr. Khashoggi. Our intelligence agencies continue to assess all information, but it could very well be that the Crown Prince had knowledge of this tragic event – maybe he did and maybe he didn’t!
