LOS ANGELES — Caitlyn Jenner, a Republican whose campaign for California governor has elicited angry reaction from some members of the LGBTQ community, said Wednesday that “I move on” when it comes to her critics. Her comment came during a one-on-one interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, which marked some of her first words in public since announcing her candidacy for the expected recall election that could remove Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom. In their wide-ranging chat, Jenner used the friendly platform of Hannity’s stage to stake out positions on issues from immigration to forest management. She said she would reopen the state immediately after more than a year of pandemic restrictions, opposed efforts to defund police departments and suggested that funds from the state's troubled high-speed rail project should be channeled into desalination plants to provide more water in the drought-prone state. But she also displayed signs of a first-time candidate, occasionally stumbling over answers, rambling or providing only generalities. At one point she said she supported illegal immigration, but corrected herself after Hannity spoke up. But she also made no disastrous blunders that might follow her throughout the campaign. While discussing her place as a transgender role model, Jenner lamented the high suicide rate within the community and added, "For me to be a role model for them, to be out there. I am running for governor of the state of California, who would ever thunk that? We’ve never even had a woman governor.” But Hannity queried back: “But some are mad at you.” Jenner shook her head and stumbled over her initial response. “I move on,” Jenner said. Last weekend, Jenner witnessed an outcry from many in the transgender community after she told TMZ that she opposes transgender girls competing in girls’ sports at school, calling it “a question of fairness.” She hinted she would have more to say on the issue. “I just said biological boys in sports. There’s more to it than that, and I think in the future I will explain more of that,” she added. During the interview, which took place at Jenner’s private airplane hangar near Malibu, California, she also endorsed the border wall that was a signature project for former President Donald Trump. “We can’t have a state, we can’t have a country without a secure wall," Jenner said. And she also acknowledged the obvious: As someone coming from outside government, she'll need advice from a brain trust of policy experts. In a Jenner administration, she said she would “surround myself with some of the smartest people out there.” “I am an outsider,” Jenner said. “I understand that.” The 71-year-old Jenner — who won the men's Olympic decathlon in 1976 and decades later became a reality TV star and transgender woman — announced her candidacy about two weeks ago in a written statement on Twitter. Since then, her campaign has been slow to unfold. Prior to the interview, she has posted on Twitter and released a video and other materials on her website that provided only a rough sketch of how she would manage the nation’s most populous state. Jenner calls herself a “compassionate disrupter” but struggled when asked by Hannity to explain the phrase. “I was thinking the other day, I think I’m more of a thoughtful disrupter,” she said. “I have common sense.” When asked if she would eliminate so-called sanctuary status for people who entered the country illegally, her answer lacked specifics. Jenner said she would maintain a sanctuary state for small business to create jobs, but went on to indicate she would otherwise oppose it and never made clear how such a system would work. At another point she talked of the value of immigration and told a story about a man who overstayed a visa. “He is the nicest, greatest guy,” Jenner said. “I would do everything for him to stay here.” Later, she said the state would work closely with federal immigration authorities to crack down on violations. The taping took place in an exclusive area. Malibu is known as a playground for the wealthy, with sprawling mansions perched above the Pacific. It has about 12,000 mostly white residents, and the median value of homes is over $2 million, according to government statistics. Her cautious steps into the campaign highlight the risks for a political newcomer who could be tripped up by a vast array of complex subjects, from immigration to tax policy to vaccine distribution. The written statements and video released so far, which include shots of her Olympic competition and gold medal, appear intended to introduce Jenner’s story to voters who might know little about her. Indeed, a significant portion of the interview involved Jenner recalling her personal history. She spoke movingly about the struggle with identity issues throughout much of her life that led to her decision to come out as a woman in 2015. “I can be myself now. I couldn’t do it before, because I had too many secrets," she said. With the Olympics more than four decades behind her, she's probably best known these days for reality TV shows, “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” and the spin-off, “I Am Cait.” “For a candidate like Caitlyn Jenner to win, it has to be like a layered cake. The bottom layer has to be Trump supporters,” said Bill Whalen, a research fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution who was a speechwriter for former GOP Republican Gov. Pete Wilson. “Where do you go to get Trump supporters? Simple. Sean Hannity,” Whalen said. Jenner made headlines in recent years with her ties to Trump, who lost to Joe Biden in the state by over 5 million votes. Jenner supported Trump in 2016 but later criticized his administration’s reversal of a directive on transgender access to public school bathrooms. She also split with Trump after he said transgender people would not be allowed to serve in the U.S. military. The challenge she faces is getting past what Whalen called the “giggle factor” that comes with being a reality TV figure looking to run the largest state government in the country and the fifth-largest economy in the world. Jenner’s first TV appearance comes as candidates in the expected recall election are becoming more visible. On Tuesday, Republican businessman John Cox appeared with a Kodiak bear to relaunch his campaign in Sacramento. Cox lost to Newsom in a 2018 landslide. Former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer and ex-Congressman Doug Ose, both Republicans, also are running. Newsom’s campaign sent out a fundraising appeal in advance of the interview, warning that “This is a huge event for the far right. It will introduce this recall attempt to people across the country. We have to be ready for what comes next.” Michael R. Blood, The Associated Press

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Alex Pietrangelo scored at 1:53 of overtime, giving the Vegas Golden Knights a 3-2 victory after another late rally by the Minnesota Wild. Alex Tuch, the Wild's first-round draft pick in 2014, set up Pietrangelo with a pass across the slot that helped the West Division-leading Golden Knights loosen the race a little and win for the first time in four games at Minnesota this season. Goalie Marc-Andre Fleury made 26 saves and took over sole possession of the No. 3 spot on the NHL’s career wins list with No. 490. Chandler Stephenson had a second-period goal and Reilly Smith had the tying score with 4:16 remaining in regulation for Vegas, after Kirill Kaprizov scored two goals in a 2:10 span for the Wild. The Golden Knights (37-13-2) stretched their lead over the third-place Wild (33-14-5) to five points, with Colorado in between. The first three spots in the playoffs in the West Division have long been clinched, but the order has stayed up for grabs with the final week of the schedule approaching. The Golden Knights and the Wild have four games remaining, and the Avalanche have five games left after playing later Wednesday at San Jose. Minnesota finished 5-1-2 against Vegas this season. Second-leading scorer Kevin Fiala was a surprise scratch due to a lower-body injury, and the Wild didn't have the same jump as two nights ago until coming to life down the stretch. Jared Spurgeon's shot early in the third period pinged off the post, and the pressure kept coming at Fleury down the stretch. Roughed up earlier by an opponent desperate to take the Russian rookie off his multi-skilled game, Kaprizov topped himself yet again with another resume builder for the Calder Trophy. After muscling his way behind and around the net, he knocked an airborne pass into the net with 8:47 remaining in regulation. With 6:37 left, Kaprizov spun around after snagging a puck that leaked away from a faceoff and snapped a shot past Fleury for the short-lived lead. Cam Talbot made 31 saves for the Wild. After giving up five goals over the first two periods on Monday, he stopped all 11 shots against him in the third period of that game. HEATING UP The Wild stormed back to win 6-5 on Monday with three goals in the third period, including two in the final 92 seconds. The atmosphere in the arena felt a little like the playoffs despite the distanced and limited crowd per virus restrictions. The other side of such intensity is the natural agitation between the two teams, and the first period of this game was, well, a bloody mess. There were a combined 30 penalty minutes issued. Golden Knights defencemen Zach Whitecloud and Nicolas Hague were seen bleeding after tussles on the ice, as was Wild forward Ryan Hartman. After Whitecloud was in a scrum with Kaprizov, Marcus Foligno was so moved to stand up for his teammate he engaged in a furious fight with Hague. BANGED UP Golden Knights leading scorer Max Pacioretty missed his second straight game with an undisclosed injury, and fellow LW Tomas Nosek was out for the fifth consecutive game. This was only Fiala's second injury absence of the season. He missed three games earlier for a league-issued suspension. Marcus Johansson returned at RW for the Wild after being sidelined for two games for an upper-body injury. UP NEXT Golden Knights: Return home to face St. Louis on Friday and Saturday. Wild: Finish their seven-game homestand by hosting Anaheim on Friday and Saturday. ___ More AP NHL coverage: https://apnews.com/hub/NHL and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Dave Campbell, The Associated Press

A prototype of SpaceX's Starship rocket soared into the south Texas sky in a high-altitude test launch on Wednesday, then flew back to Earth to touch down safely for the first time, after four previous return-landing attempts ended in explosions. The feat marked a key milestone for the private rocket company of billionaire tech mogul Elon Musk in its development of a resusable heavy-lift launch vehicle to eventually carry astronauts and large cargo payloads to the moon and Mars. The Starship SN15 blasted off from the SpaceX launch site in Boca Chica, Texas, along the Gulf Coast and reached its planned maximum altitude of 10 kilometers (6 miles), then hovered momentarily in midair before flying nose-down under aerodynamic control back toward Earth.
NEW YORK — Giancarlo Stanton homered again and knocked in four runs, Aaron Hicks hit a tiebreaking single in the eighth inning and the New York Yankees beat the Houston Astros 6-3 on Wednesday for their fifth straight victory. With fans in the Bronx chanting curses at José Altuve and several other Astros for the second consecutive night, the Yankees (16-14) got three innings of scoreless relief from their major league-best bullpen and won for the 10th time in 13 games to move two games above .500 for the first time this season. Yuli Gurriel and Aledmys Díaz had back-to-back RBI doubles off Jordan Montgomery in a three-run fourth that gave Houston a 3-2 lead. But the Yankees rallied with two outs and none on in the fifth, and Stanton tied it when he greeted Ryne Stanek with an RBI double. The big slugger launched a long homer off rookie starter Luis Garcia in the third, extending his hitting streak to 11 games with his second two-run shot in two nights against the rival Astros. Stanton finished 3 for 4 with a walk and has 17 hits in his last six games, raising his batting average from .205 to .314. New York will try for a three-game sweep Thursday afternoon, with ace Gerrit Cole facing Houston for the first time since leaving the Astros for a $324 million, nine-year contract with the Yankees before the 2020 season. This is Houston's first visit to Yankee Stadium since the team's 2017-18 illegal sign-stealing scam was exposed after the 2019 season. A crowd of 9,895 limited by the pandemic called Alex Bregman and other Astros cheaters throughout the night, but the venom and vitriol seemed to be dialed down a bit from the series opener Tuesday. New York won this one even though No. 3 hitter Aaron Judge fanned all five times up, standing six runners. The five strikeouts matched a career worst set at Detroit on June 4, 2018. With the score tied 3-all, Gleyber Torres opened the eighth with a single off Brooks Raley (0-2). Pinch-hitter Clint Frazier walked and the slumping Hicks poked a flare inside the right-field line to put the Yankees ahead. Brett Gardner hit a sacrifice fly later in the inning, and Stanton added an RBI single. Jonathan Loaisiga (3-1) pitched a hitless eighth and Aroldis Chapman struck out two in a perfect ninth for his seventh save. Of his 33 outs this season, 23 are on strikeouts. TRAINER'S ROOM Astros: C Martín Maldonado sat out with a bruised left trapezius and is day to day. He told manager Dusty Baker he would be available in an emergency. Maldonado was banged up Tuesday night when Rougned Odor's knee slammed into his head and shoulder in a nasty-looking home plate collision. “He’s a little sore,” Baker said. "He’s doing pretty good, I mean, considering the force of that collision.” ... RHP Enoli Paredes, on the injured list with right side soreness, was set to begin a rehab assignment at Double-A Corpus Christi. ... RHP Jake Odorizzi (right pronator muscle strain) was scheduled to throw a bullpen — in an indoor cage if necessitated by rain. He'll need at least a couple of rehab outings before returning, Baker said. ... Slumping RF Kyle Tucker was rested in favour of Díaz, a utility infielder who has played left field in the majors several times but had never played right before. Tucker replaced Díaz on defence in the seventh inning of a tie game. Yankees: Odor was placed on the 10-day injured list with a sprained left knee and the team recalled RHP Albert Abreu from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. New York manager Aaron Boone said Odor would be examined later in the day by head team physician Dr. Christopher Ahmad. “I think all things considered, we kind of lucked out,” Boone said. “It looked ugly to me right away, and I was pretty concerned. So I think it’s going to be on the shorter side. I don’t want to speculate until Dr. Ahmad kind of gives that prognosis, but I don’t think it’s going to be too long.” DJ LeMahieu replaced Odor at second base, and Mike Ford started at first. ... Luke Voit (left knee surgery) went 2 for 3 with a two-run homer while batting leadoff in his second rehab game with Scranton, a 7-5 victory at Syracuse. He was scheduled to play five innings at first base. Last year's major league home run champ hopes to join the big league club next week. ... Also for Scranton, RHP Adam Warren struck out three in 1 1/3 scoreless innings, his first appearance since Tommy John surgery in September 2019. ROSTER MOVE Houston signed RHP Ryan Eades to a minor league contract and assigned him to Triple-A Sugar Land. UP NEXT Cole (4-1, 1.43 ERA) faces friend and former teammate Lance McCullers Jr. (2-1, 3.38) when the American League powers wrap up this highly anticipated series in a Thursday matinee. “You like to go up against the best, right?'' McCullers said, adding the two haven't really chatted lately in the lead-up. ”So, I’m looking forward to it.” ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/hub/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Mike Fitzpatrick, The Associated Press

MILWAUKEE — Jrue Holiday scored 29 points and the Milwaukee Bucks withstood a triple-double from Russell Westbrook to beat the Washington Wizards 135-134 on Wednesday night. Westbrook had 29 points, 17 assists and 12 rebounds for his 179th career triple-double, but the Wizards still lost for just the fourth time in their last 17 games. He’s just two shy of Oscar Robertson's NBA record of 181 career triple-doubles. Westbrook has a league-leading 33 triple-doubles this season, including five in his last six games. The only time Westbrook missed out on a triple-double during this six-game stretch came Saturday when he had 42 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists in a 125-124 loss to Dallas. Bradley Beal scored 42 points and hit a 3-pointer that cut Milwaukee’s lead to 135-134 with 5.3 seconds left. Westbrook got a steal in the final second, but Garrison Mathews’ desperation shot from over 50 feet away didn’t connect. Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 23 points for the Bucks before fouling out with 1:54 left. Donte DiVincenzo had 19. HAWKS 135, SUNS 103 ATLANTA (AP) — Clint Capela scored 18 points to lead seven scorers in double figures and Atlanta pulled away late to overcome Devin Booker’s 30 points and rout Phoenix. The Suns began the night even with the Utah Jazz in the race for the NBA’s best record, thanks to a five-game winning streak. Phoenix faded badly in the fourth quarter of the back-to-back following Tuesday night’s 134-118 overtime win at Cleveland. Atlanta outscored Phoenix 38-15 in the fourth period. The Suns’ first field goal of the period was a 3-pointer by Langston Galloway with 2:33 remaining. Atlanta led 97-88 before scoring the first 14 points of the fourth period. Rookie Onyeka Okongwu had the first three baskets of the period and scored 14 points. Atlanta stretched its lead to 23 points, 111-88, before the Suns finally managed their first points of the quarter on Cameron Payne’s two free throws. The Hawks began the night fifth in the Eastern Conference. Mikal Bridges, who had 18 points, was the Suns’ only other scorer in double figures. Trae Young had 16 points and 12 assists for the Hawks. Bogdan Bogdanovic and Danilo Gallinari also had 16 points. CELTICS 132, MAGIC 96 ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Kemba Walker tied a season high with 32 points in his return from a four-game injury absence and Evan Fournier had 18 points in his first game back in Orlando since being traded to Boston. Jayson Tatum shook off a slow start and finished with 27 points for Boston, which swept the three-game series with the Magic and beat Orlando for a sixth straight time over the past two seasons. The Celtics made 21 3-pointers, just two fewer than their season-best 23 against Orlando on March 21. Walker was coming off a nine-day layoff because of a strained left oblique. Dwayne Bacon and Moritz Wagner each scored 20 points for Orlando. 76ERS 135, ROCKETS 115 HOUSTON (AP) — Joel Embiid had 34 points in just 25 minutes and Philadelphia routed Houston for its sixth straight victory. The Eastern Conference leaders were up by double figures for most of the night and their starters barely had to play in the fourth quarter to keep the NBA’s longest active winning streak going. Houston, which has the NBA’s worst record at 16-50, lost its third straight and eighth in nine games. Embiid had 12 rebounds and made 14 of 16 free throws. Kelly Olynyk scored 27 points for Houston. GRIZZLIES 130, TIMBERWOLVES 135 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Ja Morant had 37 points and 10 assists and Memphis held off Minnesota. Desmond Bane scored 22 points off the bench, including a few key 3-pointers late, and Kyle Anderson added 20 points for the Grizzlies. Memphis overcame a big game from Timberwolves rookie Anthony Edwards, who tied his career high with 42 points. Karl-Anthony Towns scored 22 points but ran into foul trouble when he picked up his fifth foul late in the third quarter. TRAIL BLAZERS 141, CAVALIERS 105 CLEVELAND (AP) — Damian Lillard had 32 points and nine assists and Enes Kanter had 18 points and 13 rebounds, leading Portland to its highest points total of the season. Lillard scored 16 points in the first quarter and 14 points in the third as Portland moved within a half-game of the Mavericks and Lakers for fifth place in the West. The Trail Blazers are seventh and would be the top seed in the play-in tournament. Kevin Love had 18 points for the Cavaliers. They have lost eight in a row and are 1-11 since April 15. KINGS 104, PACERS 93 INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Marvin Bagley III kept Sacramento’s slim playoff hopes alive,scoring a season-high 31 points and grabbing 12 rebounds to lead the Kings past Indiana.
