endorsement. We’ll have all the latest from the campaign trail.

Foreign governments are strategically buying up chunks of the
U.S. economy through sovereign wealth funds, which own an
estimated $2.5 trillion in assets worldwide. China, the United
Arab Emirates and others are taking huge stakes in U.S. banks,
technology and infrastructure companies Critics say these
investments lack transparency and subject U.S. companies to
undue foreign influence. That story, tonight.

New home sales suffered their sharpest drop ever last month.
Sales are down more than 40 percent from a year ago and prices
fell last year for the first time since the Great Depression.
Economists are saying the declines in sales and prices are not
over. We’ll have that story.

say his stance favoring drivers’ licenses for illegal
immigrants is an attempt to gain their favor We’ll take a look
at Senator Obama's positions on border security and illegal
immigration and his efforts to court Latino voters.

And a large U.S. spy satellite has lost power and is expected

land. We’ll have the story.
