KAMPALA, Uganda — Call it a struggle for the soul of the ghetto. Uganda's longtime president this month went on a whirlwind tour of some of the capital's poorest slums, handing out checks totaling over a quarter-million dollars. The next day, residents turned up in the red colors of the opposition and instead gave thanks to President Yoweri Museveni's newest and biggest challenger, a crusading pop star and rookie lawmaker who styles himself as the "ghetto president." The 36-year-old singer who performs as Bobi Wine is going toe-to-toe with one of Africa's longest-serving presidents, inspiring young people across the continent...

Sen. Dean Heller has faced tight races before but never lost an election. He's now in the fight of his career to keep his Senate seat in a blue-trending state that Hillary Clinton carried in 2016. "Oh yeah, oh yeah. I'll win," Heller told reporters last week in Reno. To win, he's performing political acrobatics, aligning himself with President Donald...
