Republicans did not seem to have the votes to get the measure through the house, the Sweet Sixteen gets ready to tip, dog revived after being pulled from a fire, and more headlines for your drive home Thursday, March 23, 2017.

WASHINGTON GOP House leaders delayed their planned vote Thursday on a long-promised bill to repeal and replace "Obamacare," in a stinging setback for House Speaker Paul Ryan and President Donald Trump in their first major legislative test.

The decision came after Trump, who ran as a master dealmaker, failed to reach agreement with a bloc of rebellious conservatives. Moderate-leaning Republican lawmakers were also bailing on the legislation, leaving it short of votes.

OREGON, GONZAGA LOOK TO ADVANCE IN SWEET SIXTEEN

It has been a while since a team from the West Coast made its way to the Final Four. No team from a state bordering Pacific Ocean has made the Final Four since UCLA was eliminated in the national semifinals in 2008.

Oregon and Gonzaga are among the teams hoping to change that. Both take the court tonight, with Oregon taking on Michigan at 7:09 Eastern and Gonzaga facing West Virginia at 7:39 Eastern.

DOG PULLED FROM FIRE REVIVED

SANTA MONICA, Calif. California firefighters who spent 20 minutes performing mouth-to-snout resuscitation on a dog they rescued from a burning apartment are being hailed as heroes.

The dog's owner, 35-year-old Crystal Lamirande, had just returned to her Santa Monica apartment Tuesday when a neighbor yelled there was a fire.

Lamirande says she frantically tried to save her dog, a 10-year-old Bichon Frise/Shih Tzu named Nalu (NAH'-loo). But she says the smoke was too thick.

DEMOCRATS THREATEN A FILIBUSTER AGAINST GORSUCH

WASHINGTON Senate Democrats vowed Thursday to impede Judge Neil Gorsuch's path to the Supreme Court, setting up a political showdown with implications for future openings on the high court.

Still irate that Republicans blocked President Barack Obama's nominee, Democrats consider Gorsuch a threat to a wide range of civil rights and think he was too evasive during 20 hours of questioning. Whatever the objections, Republicans who control the Senate are expected to ensure that President Donald Trump's pick reaches the bench, perhaps before the middle of April.

HOUSE INTEL CHAIR APOLOGIZES TO COMMITTEE

WASHINGTON The House intelligence committee chairman privately apologized to his Democratic colleagues on Thursday, yet publicly defended his decision to openly discuss and brief President Donald Trump on typically secret intercepts that he says swept up communications of the president's transition team in the final days of the Obama administration.

GOP Rep. Devin Nunes' decision to disclose the information before talking to committee members outraged Democrats and raised questions about the independence of the panel's probe of Russian interference into the 2016 election and possible contacts between Trump associates and Russia.

"It was a judgment call on my part," Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., told reporters Thursday morning. "Sometimes you make the right decision, sometimes you make wrong decision."
