Iowa Results Trickle In
Democratic officials in Iowa released partial results from Monday's caucuses yesterday, the first data from a nominating contest thrown into chaos by technical issues with a mobile reporting app. The results, which covered 71% of the state's precincts showed Pete Buttigieg with a slight lead (26.8% of delegates) over Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) (25.2%), while Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) was in third (18.3%). The nation's first nominating contest typically provides a major boost to the winning campaign; instead the momentum is expected to be stifled. If results hold, Buttigieg and Sanders will both win 10 delegates, while Warren will take four. No other candidates would receive delegates. The other beneficiaries are Joe Biden, who performed poorly (15.6%) but dodged a negative press cycle, and Mike Bloomberg, who avoided Iowa altogether while focusing on Super Tuesday. Attention now shifts to Friday's debate (8pm ET, ABC), which comes ahead of Tuesday's primaries in New Hampshire.

Trump Delivers State of the Union
President Trump delivered his third State of the Union address last night, highlighting a growing economy while avoiding the topic of impeachment altogether. The president emphasized his administration's tax cuts, trade deals, and the deaths of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and Iranian general Qassem Soleimani. The hour-and-a-half speech included a number of made-for-television moments, including reuniting a deployed service member with his family and the live presentation of talk show host Rush Limbaugh - recently diagnosed with cancer - with the Medal of Freedom. In a rapidly shifting political landscape, the speech - likely in front of Trump's biggest audience before the November elections - comes at an opportune time for the president: The Senate is poised to acquit him on impeachment charges, Democrats are enmeshed in Iowa, and his job approval hit a personal best at 49% in recent polls. 

The most-talked about moments were the chilly reception between Trump and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D, CA-12): he snubbed her handshake and she ripped up a copy of the speech.
Excavation in Tulsa Massacre
The city of Tulsa, Okla., will conduct a preliminary excavation in search of remains from a century-old race riot in which as many as 300 African Americans were believed to have been brutally murdered. The 1921 massacre, considered by some to be the single worst incident of racial violence in US history, ignited after rumors that Dick Rowland, a black man accused of sexual assault, had been lynched (history here). In the ensuing violence - carried out on foot and via private aircraft - hundreds of people were injured and 35 square blocks of the predominantly black Greenwood District were destroyed. The incident was largely omitted from state history until a 1996 state commission was established to create a historical account of the massacre. The move comes two months after archaeologists identified two sites in the city's Oaklawn Cemetery consistent with mass graves.  

Public interest in the incident was revived by HBO's "Watchmen," whose opening scene depicts the violence.
