The midterm election season began in earnest Tuesday with primaries in Indiana and Ohio. Ohio’s hotly contested Republican Senate race tested the enduring power of former President Donald Trump’s influence, as his endorsed candidate, JD Vance, defeated six others for the GOP nomination for the seat held by retiring Republican Sen. Rob Portman. Trump-endorsed Republicans Madison Gesiotto Gilbert and Max Miller won U.S. House primaries in northeast Ohio. Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose, also endorsed by Trump, won the state’s Republican primary over a conservative challenger who questioned the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election results.

China’s export growth tumbled in April after Shanghai and other major industrial cities were shut down to fight virus outbreaks. Customs data showed exports rose 3.7% over a year earlier to $273.6 billion, down sharply from March’s 15.7% growth. Reflecting weak Chinese demand, imports crept up 0.7% to $222.5 billion, in line with the previous month’s growth below 1%. The data confirmed fears that anti-virus controls shutting down most businesses in Shanghai and other industrial centers may depress trade and activity in autos, electronics and other industries. China’s global trade surplus widened by 19.4% to $51.1 billion while the politically volatile surplus with the United States contracted by 65% to $9.8 billion.

Social media users shared a range of false claims this week. Here are the facts: A new abortion pill law in Tennessee doesn’t ban Plan B. U.S. Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett didn't cite a need for a “domestic supply of infants” in a leaked draft opinion for a decision that would overturn Roe v. Wade. Legal records show that Dominion Voting Systems' defamation lawsuits against attorney Sidney Powell and former President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani are ongoing in May 2022. Immigrants living in the U.S. without legal permission aren't more likely to commit crimes than U.S.-born citizens.

Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay spent years putting together his expansive guitar collection. Now he’s trying to add a Fender Mustang electric guitar used by Kurt Cobain. Cobain’s family is auctioning off the blue guitar used in Nirvana’s iconic “Smells Like Teen Spirit” music video and other items that belonged to the late singer. Bidding will take place May 20-22 at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York’s Times Square. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Colts’ Kicking The Stigma mental health awareness campaign. Irsay owns dozens of musical instruments including a drum set from The Beatles and the original manuscript of Jack Kerouac’s “On The Road.” He would like to add Cobain’s guitar to his prized possessions and made an opening bid of $2 million.

Kyrie Irving may have to show the Brooklyn Nets he’s more than a great basketball player if he wants a future with the team. General manager Sean Marks made clear Wednesday that Irving will have to prove a commitment to being available to his team that wasn’t there this season. After Irving missed almost all the Nets’ home games because he refused to be vaccinated against the coronavirus, Marks said talks about a potential contract extension this summer will need to include an evaluation of his dedication to play unless he’s injured. Marks says: “It’s a team sport and you need everybody out there on the court.”
