Donald J. Trump’s victory in Nevada on Tuesday, his third

win of the primary season, highlights the tough road ahead for

Marco Rubio, who has yet to win a contest despite support

from the Republican establishment. It also complicates things

for one G.O.P. leader in particular, Speaker Paul D. Ryan,

whose main goal this year is to set a policy agenda that both

Republican lawmakers and their presidential nominee will rally

behind. Here are five ways Mr. Trump could still stumble.


Democrats in South Carolina go to the

polls on Saturday as 11 states prepare to

Hollywood if you’re not a straight white man.


The iPhone belonging to one of the San Bernardino, Calif.,

attackers isn’t the only one the Justice Department is

demanding Apple’s help to unlock. At least nine other requests

have been made nationwide, supporting the company’s concern

that if it assists in unlocking one phone, that may set a

precedent for hundreds of others. Engineers at the company,

meanwhile, are said to be working on even tougher security

Two puppeteers in Spain trying to make a point about

aggressive prosecution of antiterrorism laws were themselves

arrested this month, giving rise to one in a string of cases that
