BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) — Hungary's nationalist Jobbik party will not return to its far-right origins, including frequent anti-Semitic and racist remarks by its politicians, party chairman Gabor Vona said Friday.

Jobbik is the strongest opposition group but far behind Prime Minister Viktor Orban's Fidesz party in the polls ahead of April's election.

Vona told The Associated Press in an interview that he has pushed Jobbik in a more centrist direction to become a "people's party" and attract more voters.

"I decided in 2013 that this is how I will lead the party or I won't lead it at all," Vona said. "The kind of anti-Semitic expressions which took place in Jobbik earlier are impossible to imagine. Or if they did, they wo

It was NASA's first use of a reused Falcon rocket and only the second of a previously flown Dragon.

Within 10 minutes of liftoff, the first-stage booster was back at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, standing upright on the giant X at SpaceX's landing zone. That's where it landed back in June following its first launch. Double sonic booms thunder
