Good Thursday morning,
Here are some of the stories making news in Washington and politics today:
  • Conor Lamb, a Democrat and former Marine, scored a razor-thin but extraordinary upset in a special House election in southwestern Pennsylvania.
  • Attorney General Jeff Sessions is reviewing a recommendation to fire the former F.B.I. deputy director, Andrew G. McCabe, just days before he is scheduled to retire on Sunday, people briefed on the matter said.
  • The CNBC commentator Larry Kudlow, an unabashed prognosticator who relishes the provocative, is President Trump’s choice to replace Gary D. Cohn as head of the National Economic Council.
  • Two months after four American soldiers were killed in Niger, a group of Green Berets and local forces killed 11 ISIS militants in a previously undisclosed battle.
  • Hundreds of high school students massed at the Capitol to demand gun control, but the House instead approved modest legislation to beef up school security without changes to the nation’s gun laws.
