President To Visit Washington State, Raising Money For Murray

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - President Barack Obama is headlining a fundraiser for Democratic Sen. Patty Murray on primary day next month.

Murray's campaign says Obama is coming to Washington state Aug. 17 to talk about jobs and the economy. He'll also appear at a fundraiser for Murray, who is running for a fourth term in the Senate.

Murray's top challenger is Republican Dino Rossi, who twice ran unsuccessfully for governor. A handful of other candidates also are gunning for votes in the "top two" primary, which sends the two highest vote-getters on to the November election.

It will be Obama's first visit to the state as president. He stopped here while campaigning for the office in 2008.

    MUMBAI - A surgical team in India successfully removed a massive brain tumor from a man Thursday, weighing over 4 pounds. It was a lengthy, nearly seven-hour procedure and doctors believe it could be the heaviest ever recorded.  The tumor, which protruded from the top of the man's skull, was so large that it seemed “like a head on top of another head,” Trimurti Nadkarni, head of the neurosurgery department at Nair Hospital, told the Indian Express.
