Agents appear to be focusing on areas of the sprawling property containing Trump's living quarters and offices. I didn't know right away if it was.

Politically, Trump continues to be his 800-pound gorilla in the Republican Icanfield. Over the weekend, he won a convincingstraw vote at a rally in Texas with astraw vote. The main question at this point is when to announce the candidacy, not whether to do so. A clear sense of getting closer to him complicates it all.
