"I am in for the distance — as long as we have a viable path to victory," Cruz told reporters after campaigning at a popular breakfast stop.

People with insomnia should try counseling before they turn to pills, which often carry dangerous side effects, a doctors' group advised Monday.
Specialized counseling can and does work, even if people don't like doing it and doctors often don't know how to do it, the American College of Physicians said in new guidelines on insomnia.
"The evidence is quite strong that cognitive behavioral therapy is effective. It works. It's long-lasting and it has the potential to decrease cost to the health care system," Dr. Wayne Riley, president of the American College of Physicians, told NBC News.

President Barack Obama hasn't seen the secret chapter of Congress' joint 2002 report on Sept. 11 attacks, the White House revealed on Monday. Press secretary Josh Earnest previously hasn't answered when asked whether Obama had read the pages in question.
But pressure is growing on the administration to declassify the chapter, which makes up 28 of the report's 838 pages, in light of claims made in a lawsuit that blames Saudi Arabia for the 2001 attacks, NBC News reported.
"The president obviously reads a lot of material on a day-to-day basis," Earnest said at the daily briefing for the media Monday. "I'm not sure that he felt that it was necessary for him to read those 28 pages."
CIA Director John Brennan said Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press" that information in the classified pages was preliminary and uncorroborated, and he said it was likely to be "very, very inaccurate" in discussing Saudi Arabia.

The first U.S. cruise ship in nearly 40 years crossed the Florida Straits from Miami and pulled into Havana Harbor on Monday, restarting commercial travel on waters that served as a stage for a half-century of Cold War hostility.
The gleaming white 704-passenger Adonia appeared on the horizon around 8 p.m. EST. Cubans fishing off the city's seaside boulevard, the Malecon, watched it slowly sail toward the colonial fort at the mouth of Havana Harbor. The ship stopped off the city's cruise terminal and began slowly turning into a docking position, the first U.S. cruise ship in Havana since President Jimmy Carter eliminated virtually all restrictions of U.S. travel to Cuba in the late 1970s.
A year and a half after the city emerged from the largest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history, Detroit 2.0 is still beset by crippling bugs in the system.
Amid a bribery scandal that has led to corruption charges against 14 employees, the school system is running out of money and will have to stop paying teachers and staff on June 30, according to a school system memo obtained by the teachers union, NBC News reported.
The Detroit Federation of Teachers, which called an emergency meeting Sunday afternoon after local NBC affiliate WDIV reported details of the memo, urged a district-wide teacher "sickout" on Monday. The station reported that 87 of the district's roughly 100 schools were closed Monday.
The school system confirmed the dire straits in a statement Saturday night, saying there will be "no funds available for the district to conduct summer school or provide the year-round special education services that a number of our students rely on."
