BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The state Republican Party chairman says an effort to recall a GOP legislator who voted to expel a fellow Republican accused of sexually harassing women is being viewed as a litmus test for party loyalty. The move to recall Rep. Dwight Kiefert over his vote to oust former Rep. Luke Simons has fanned the flames of an intraparty fight that has a far-right faction seeking to pull the party in its direction. Perrie Schafer was elected chairman of the state GOP last month. He says his “goal is to get people rolling in the same direction.”


FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Fargo police say a 40-year-old man has been arrested for murder after a shooting Saturday night. Police responded about 11 p.m. to a report of shots fired on the city’s north side. A man was found with a gunshot wound and the suspect was located shortly thereafter. No further information has been released.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The federal government has denied a request by North Dakota leaders to allow ranchers struggling with drought to hay idled grassland while it’s still of good quality. The state Agriculture Department says it is looking into the reasons why. The federal government is allowing limited emergency grazing of Conservation Reserve Program land, which typically is idled under a government program that pays farmers to protect erodible land and create wildlife habitat. North Dakota ranchers all summer have been seeking federal government permission to also hay that land.

Not a splashy start for US swimmers on Monday

TOKYO (AP) — The US swimming team was able to grab at least one medal in each event during Sunday’s schedule. Monday didn’t have the same feel until Caleb Dressel (DREH’-sul) hit the pool.

Dressel began his quest for six gold medals by leading off an American victory in the men’s 4×100-meter freestyle relay. He gave the U.S. a lead it never relinquished as the quartet finished in 3:08.97, the third-fastest time in history.

Australia’s Ariarne Titmus defeated Katie Ledecky in the 400-meter freestyle. Titmus trailed by nearly a full body-length at the halfway mark of the eight-lap race. She turned on the speed to touch in 3 minutes, 56.69 seconds, the second-fastest time in history.

The defending-champion Ledecky had to settle for silver after finishing just under 7/10ths of a second behind, the fourth-fastest time ever.

The powerhouse US team won six of 12 medals on Sunday but was shut out of the medals in the first two finals Monday.

American teenager Torri Huske had to settle for fourth in the women’s 100-meter butterfly after being at or near the lead most of the race. She faded on her final strokes and just missed a spot on the podium, finishing one-hundredth of a second from a bronze medal.

Maggie MacNeil won the event to give Canada it’s first gold medal at the pool.

Like Huske, American Michael Andrew was a fourth-place finisher in the men’s 100-meter breaststroke. The race was won by Britain’s Adam Peaty, successfully defending his title in the event.

In other Olympic events:

— Naomi Osaka has the hopes of the entire host nation resting on her. Novak Djokovic is attempting to accomplish something that no man has done before in tennis. Both players are after something special at the Tokyo Olympics and both produced convincing victories to reach the last 16 at Ariake Tennis Park. Osaka crushed winners off both wings seemingly at will in a 6-3, 6-2 victory over 49th-ranked Viktorija Golubic of Switzerland. Then Djokovic dispatched 48th-ranked Jan-Lennard Struff of Germany 6-4, 6-3. Djokovic is attempting to become the first man to win a Golden Slam by winning all four Grand Slam tournaments and Olympic gold in the same calendar year.

— The U.S. has rallied to beat Japan 2-1 and win their Olympic softball group stage. That gives them the right to bat last in the gold medal game. Kelsey Stewart hit a game-ending home run leading off the seventh inning. Stewart says it’s like you dream about when you’re a little kid, about hitting a home run at the Olympics. Stewart had been 1 for 12 with no RBIs at the Olympics before she drove the 98th pitch from Yamato Fujita (0-1) just over the glove of leaping right fielder Yuka Ichiguchi.

— Tom Pidcock has won the Olympic men’s mountain bike race. That extends Britain’s dominance from the road and track to the dirt. The course is the toughest in Olympic history. Pidcock left reigning champion Nino Schurter and his Swiss teammate Mathias Flueckiger behind on the fourth of seven laps. Flueckiger gave chase and was left with a silver medal. David Valero Serrano of Spain won a surprise bronze.


— The Angels posted a 6-2 win over the Twins behind Shohei Ohtani’s (SHOH’-hay oh-TAH’-neez) major league-leading 35th home run, a tiebreaking blast in the sixth inning. Max Stassi had three hits and drove in three runs to help Los Angeles overcome back-to-back homers by Max Kepler and Brent Rooker.


UNDATED (AP) — It was another comeback victory for the Boston Red Sox and another punch to the gut for the New York Yankees bullpen.

The Red Sox broke up Domingo Germán’s (hehr-MAHNZ’) no-hit bid to spark a five-run eighth in their 32nd comeback win of the season, 5-4 over the Yankees.

German’s afternoon ended when Alex Verdugo (vur-DOO’-goh) led off the eighth with a double, igniting a string of five straight hits. Hunter Renfroe and Kiké Hernández delivered RBI doubles, Kevin Plawecki (plah-WEH’-kee) drove in the tying run with a grounder and Xander Bogaerts (BOH’-gahrts) lifted a sacrifice fly. The fly ball allowed the Bosox to take three of four in the weekend series.

The rally occurred after the Yanks carried a 4-0 lead into the eighth.

Boston regained sole possession of the AL East lead, one game ahead of Tampa Bay.



— Lance Lynn worked six strong innings and contributed a two-run single as the White Sox defeated the Brewers, 3-1 to avoid a three-game sweep. Lynn struck out six and allowed a run and six hits in his 10th win, blanking Milwaukee until Jackie Bradley Jr.’s RBI double in the fifth.

— The Indians had dropped 11 straight to Tampa Bay before Bobby Bradley’s sacrifice fly in the eighth inning capped Cleveland’s comeback in a 3-2 win over the Rays. The Indians managed just one run in seven innings against Tampa Bay starter Ryan Yarbrough before rallying in the eighth off reliever Matt Wisler.

— Abraham Toro smacked a two-run homer and Zack Greinke (GREHN’-kee) allowed five hits over six-plus innings as the Astros handed the Rangers their 12th consecutive loss, 3-1. Greinke left with the bases loaded in the seventh before Cristian Javier got out of the jam without allowing a run.

— Kyle Seager hit a two-out, two-run single as part of the Mariners’ four-run third that carried them to a 4-3 victory over the Athletics. Gonzales allowed two runs and five hits in 5 2/3 innings to help Seattle get within 1 1/2 games of Oakland for the second AL wild card.


— Daniel Lynch pitched eight scoreless innings for his first major league win as the Royals downed the Tigers, 6-1. Jorge Soler (soh-LEHR’) homered twice and Salvador Perez added a three-run blast in Kansas City’s fifth consecutive victory.

— Ryan McKenna scored on a sharp grounder by Ramon Urías (oo-REE’-uhs) for the winning run to give the Orioles a 5-4 victory and a three-game sweep of the Nationals. Trey Mancini, Maikel Franco and McKenna hit solo homers for Baltimore, which improved to 1-51 when trailing after eight innings.

— Pete Alonso smacked his fifth home run since the All-Star break and pinch-hitter Jeff McNeil furnished a tiebreaking, two-run double while the Mets scored four in the sixth to beat the Blue Jays, 5-4 and take the three-game set. Rich Hill looked good in his first start as a Met, leaving with a 1-0 lead and the bases loaded in the sixth before Seth Lugo allowed all three runs to score. The win keeps New York atop the NL East by four games over Philadelphia.

— The Phillies gained a split of their four-game set with the Braves as Aaron Nola allowed four hits with nine strikeouts over 8 2/3s to lead Philadelphia past Atlanta, 3-2. Jean Segura and Ronald Torreyes (toh-RAY’-uhs) both had solo homers to support Nola, who was lifted after Austin Riley went deep for Atlanta with two out in the ninth.

— The Cardinals avoided a three-game sweep by erupting for seven runs in the fourth inning of a 10-6 win at Cincinnati. The big rally was highlighted by Harrison Bader’s three-run homer and Dylan Carlson’s two-run blast. Tyler O’Neill slammed a first-inning, two-run homer off Sonny Gray, who was torched for a career-high eight runs over 3 1/3 innings.

— Kris Bryant and David Bote (BOH’-tee) blasted two-run homers and Anthony Rizzo supplied a solo shot as the Cubs topped the Diamondbacks, 5-1. Trevor Williams struck out six and allowed five hits with no walks over 6 1/3 innings, his first scoreless outing this season.

— LaMonte (lah-MAHNT’) Wade Jr. homered twice and the Giants avoided a three-game sweep by defeating the Pirates, 6-1. Wilmer Flores and Thairo Estrada also went deep for San Francisco, which owns the majors’ best record at 62-37.

— Chris Taylor added a pair of home runs before Will Smith provided a tiebreaking blast in the eighth inning to send the Dodgers past the Rockies, 3-2. The Los Angeles bullpen worked five scoreless innings as the Dodgers stayed two games behind the NL West-leading Giants.

— Deven Marrero and Brian Anderson homered off Yu Darvish as the Marlins battered the Padres, 9-3 to gain a four-game split. Darvish was reached for four runs over five innings, leaving him 0-3 with a 7.32 ERA in his last four starts.


Padres get Frazier from Bucs

UNDATED (AP) — The Padres just bolstered their middle infield while trying to stay in the NL West race.

San Diego has acquired All-Star second baseman Adam Frazier from the Pirates for three prospects. That’s according to a person with knowledge of the deal who also says Pittsburgh is sending approximately $1.4 million to the Padres in the deal. The trade is pending a physical.

Frazier was the National League starter in the All-Star Game. He leads the majors with 125 hits and is batting .324.

Pittsburgh is receiving infielder Tucupita Marcano, outfielder Jack Suwinski and right-hander Michell Miliano in the trade.

Also around the majors:

— The Dodgers have placed All-Star right fielder Mookie Betts on the 10-day injured list with right hip inflammation. Betts last started on July 17 at Colorado and last appeared in a game Monday when he made a pinch-hit appearance against the Giants.

— Jake Reed switched teams while his wife, Janie, is with the U.S. softball team at the Olympics. The 28-year-old reliever was claimed off waivers by the Rays from the Dodgers and optioned to Triple-A Durham.


Texas, Oklahoma ready to take next step toward SEC

UNDATED (AP) — Texas and Oklahoma could move closer to membership in the Southeastern Conference within 24 hours.

According to multiple reports, the first and very significant formal step of the process could come as soon as Monday. That’s when the two schools are expected to inform the Big 12 they will not renew the contractual agreement that binds conference members until 2025.

The schools would likely negotiate an early exit that could cost the schools more than $100 million. But with the rich SEC on the horizon, the schools could leave the Big 12 early and change conferences in time for the 2022 college football season.


Champ’s the champ

BLAINE, Minn. (AP) — Cameron Champ fended off dehydration and crisply putted his way to a 5-under 66, winning the 3M Open by two strokes for his third career victory.

The 26-year-old Champ had five birdies in a bogey-free round to finish at 15-under 269 at TPC Twin Cities. Louis Oosthuizen (OOST’-hay-zehn), Jhonattan Vegas and Charl Schwartzel tied for second.


Dodd wins Senior British Open with last-hole birdie

SUNNINGDALE, England (AP) — Stephen Dodd birdied the final hole to win the Senior British Open by one stroke.

The 55-year-old Welshman held off challenges from Miguel Angel Jimenez (AHN’-hehl hee-MEHN’-ehz) and Darren Clarke to secure his first major title on Sunday.

Dodd closed with a 2-under 68 at Sunningdale for a four-day total of 13-under 267.


Lee wins her 1st major after beating Lee6 in playoff

EVIAN-LES-BAINS, France (AP) — Australian golfer Minjee Lee has won a sudden death playoff against overnight leader Jeongeun Lee6 to clinch the Evian Championship for her first major title.

Lee6 had to take a drop shot when her second shot on the first extra playoff hole flew into a pond, while Lee’s superb second attempt landed near the flag. Lee6 ended with a bogey to give the 25-year-old Lee three putts for victory and a sixth LPGA title.

Teenage American Yealimi Noh finished third at 17 under when she missed a birdie chance on the 18th.

The day’s best round went to Ireland’s Leona Maguire. Her 10-under 61 tied the lowest round ever by a female or male in a major.


AP source: Watson plans to report to Houston Texans camp

HOUSTON (AP) — Deshaun Watson plans to report to training camp with the Houston Texans, according to a person familiar with his thinking.

The person told The Associated Press that the quarterback still wants to be traded and is reporting solely to avoid being fined. Watson would have faced fines of $50,000 a day if he didn’t report.

Watson led the NFL in yards passing last season and signed a four-year, $156 million contract extension with the Texans last offseason. But he became unhappy with the direction of the team and requested a trade in January. His future was further clouded in March after 22 women filed lawsuits alleging that he sexually assaulted or harassed them.


Red Wings re-sign Marc Staal; Canucks to buy out Virtanen

UNDATED (AP) — Red Wings defenseman Marc Staal is staying put in Detroit, while Jake Virtanen (vur-TAN’-ehn) is about to leave the Vancouver Canucks.

The Red Wings announced reaching an agreement with Staal, and a person with direct knowledge of the contract told The Associated Press it’s a one-year deal worth $2 million.

The Canucks have placed Virtanen and will buy out a player who has often underperformed during his six seasons with the team. Virtanen was placed on leave on May 1 after being accused in a lawsuit of sexually assaulting a women four years earlier.


In world and national news…

INDIAN FALLS, Calif. (AP) — California’s largest wildfire merged with a smaller blaze and destroyed homes in remote areas with limited access for firefighters. Meanwhile, numerous other fires gained strength and threatened property across the U.S. West. The massive Dixie Fire had already leveled a dozen houses and other structures when it tore through the tiny community of Indian Falls after dark Saturday. An updated damage estimate was not available Sunday. That blaze is 21% contained. Firefighters also reported progress against the nation’s largest wildfire, the Bootleg Fire in southern Oregon. It’s 46% contained. Fires also burned in Washington, Idaho and Montana.


WASHINGTON (AP) — Senators are racing to seal a bipartisan infrastructure deal as soon as Monday. Pressure is mounting on all sides to show progress. It’s a make-or-break week on President Joe Biden’s top priority. One major roadblock is how much money should go to public transit. But spending on water projects, broadband and others areas remains unresolved, as is tapping COVID-19 funds to help pay for it. As discussions continued through the weekend, the group’s lead Republican negotiator says both sides were “about 90% of the way there.” Senate Democratic Majority Leader Chuck Schumer wants a vote before the August recess.


WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden and Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi are set to announce that they’ve come to an agreement to end the U.S. military’s combat mission in Iraq by the end of the year. That’s according to a senior administration official who spoke on the condition of anonymity. The American military mission’s stated purpose was to help Iraq defeat the Islamic State group. The plan to shift to a strictly advisory and training role by year’s end will be spelled out in a broader communique to be issued by the two leaders following their White House meeting on Monday.


TIANJIN, China (AP) — China has blamed the U.S. for what it called a “stalemate” in bilateral relations as high-level face-to-face talks begin in the Chinese city of Tianjin. A state media report says China’s vice foreign minister urged the U.S. “to change its highly misguided mindset and dangerous policy.” The official Xinhua News Agency quoted Xie Feng as telling U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman that the China-U.S. relationship is in a stalemate because some Americans portray China as an “imagined enemy.” America’s No. 2 diplomat is discussing the fraught relationship between the countries in separate meetings with Xie and Foreign Minister Wang Yi at a closed-off resort hotel.


VATICAN CITY (AP) — Vatican prosecutors have alleged a jaw-dropping series of scandals in the biggest criminal trial in the Vatican’s modern history. The trial opens Tuesday in the Vatican Museums. A once-powerful cardinal and nine other people are accused of bleeding the Holy See of millions of dollars in donations through bad investments, deals with shady money managers and apparent favors to friends and family. They face prison sentences and fines if convicted. The trial is the culmination of a two-year investigation into the Holy See’s flawed 350 million-euro London real estate venture. That operation exposed the Vatican’s once-secret financial dealings and its structural dysfunction, which allowed just a few people to do much financial damage with little oversight.


BANGKOK (AP) — World shares are mostly lower after stocks rallied to records on Wall Street, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average closing above the 35,000 level Friday for the first time. Shares fell Monday in Paris, London and Frankfurt. Tokyo advanced after a 4-day weekend, but benchmarks fell sharply in Hong Kong and Shanghai on concerns over regulatory crackdowns on technology companies. On Friday, benchmarks in New York returned to records after brushing aside a sharp downturn that trimmed 1.6% off the S&P 500 on Monday. The market has rebounded as big companies report better profits than expected and as investors once again take dips in stocks as opportunities to find bargains.
