Senator Rand Paul wins straw poll in boost to 2016 presidential prospects
Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky speaks at the Conservative Political Action Conference at National Harbor in MarylandBy Steve Holland NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. (Reuters) - Senator Rand Paul won a straw poll of conservative activists on Saturday, giving his potential bid for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016 a boost, and Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker came in second in a surprising show of strength. Whether the victory for Paul will have long-lasting benefit is unclear since his libertarian views may not have broad appeal in the Republican Party. Paul, a 52-year-old Kentucky Republican, outdistanced most other potential candidates by taking 25.7 percent of the vote at the Conservative Political Action Conference, a gathering of activists on Washington's outskirts of Washington.

China Feb official PMI shrinks for a second straight month
An employee works at a logistic center in HuaibeiActivity in China's factory sector contracted for a second straight month in February on unsteady exports and slowing investment, an official survey showed on Sunday, reinforcing bets that more policy loosening is needed to lift the economy. A separate official services PMI, also released on Sunday, showed growth in the sector accelerated to 53.9, up from 53.7 in January. Accounting for 48 percent of China's $10.2 trillion economy last year, the services sector has weathered the growth downturn better than factories, partly because it depends less on foreign demand. The official PMIs were released shortly after China's central bank cut interest rates late on Saturday, the latest effort to support the world's second-largest economy as its momentum slows and deflation risks rise.
