CBS News: Hillary Clinton opens up lead in Fox News poll -- "Hillary Clinton now has an 6-percentage-point lead nationally ahead of Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential race, according to a Fox News survey released Wednesday. The poll found Clinton leads Trump 44 percent to 38 percent, which comes after she only had a three-point edge earlier this month. In May, a similar poll found Trump was leading Clinton 45 percent to 42 percent."
Washington Post: After Istanbul attack, Turkey shows solidarity on fighting terrorism — "As Turkey counts the death toll from the horrific terrorist attack at the Istanbul airport Tuesday, a Turkish government that has sometimes dragged its feet on U.S counter-terrorism policies appears to be standing firmly on the side of its Western allies in combating jihadist terrorism — a welcome sign for Washington."
BBC News: Michael Gove: Boris Johnson wasn't up to the job -- "Michael Gove has said he chose to run for the Conservative Party leadership after deciding 'reluctantly but firmly' that Boris Johnson was not capable of uniting the party or the country. 'It had to fall to someone else... I felt it had to fall to me,' he said."
