WASHINGTON (AP) — Up against one last deadline, Congress raced to pass legislation Wednesday avoiding a threatened national default and ending a 16-day partial government shutdown along the strict terms set by President Barack Obama when the twin crises began.

ST. PAUL (AP) — Former U.S. senator Rod Grams, a popular TV anchorman who went on to become the most conservative politician ever elected to statewide office in Minnesota, has died. He was 65. Grams died late Tuesday night at his home in the east-central Minnesota town of Crown, said Kent Kaiser, a longtime GOP activist and spokesman for the Grams family. Grams had been diagnosed with cancer in April 2012. After nearly a decade as lead news anchor at KMSP-TV in the Twin Cities, Grams launched his political career in 1992 by running for Congress and ousting the Democratic incumbent.
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A Powerball ticket worth $1 million has been sold at a gas station in northwest Iowa. The Iowa lottery says the winning ticket from Saturday's drawing was purchased at a Casey's convenience store in Sheldon, Iowa. The ticket matched the first five numbers but missed the Powerball number. It was one of five tickets nationwide to win $1 million in Saturday's drawing. No one won Saturday's $88 million jackpot, so the prize will increase to roughly $108 million for Wednesday's drawing.
