In our news wrap Thursday, the late Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., lay in state in the U.S. Capitol’s Statuary Hall as fellow lawmakers, friends and families paid their respects. Leaders from both parties remembered Cummings as a man of strong moral character. Also, a new wildfire raced across California’s wine country, forcing 2,000 people to evacuate as power companies imposed new blackouts.
