04.13.2015 AFC Daily News Clips – morning edition

Good morning:

In case you missed it, Hillary Clinton is running for president. In (better?) news, the Detroit Tigers are off to a 7-0 start and we’re keeping an eye on several states this week where we expect new school choice programs to be signed into law and/or passed out of their respective state legislatures.
 
Have a great Monday!
Matt
