                 Senator Mark Kelly (D-AZ) announced on Wednesday that he will support a change to eliminate the Senate filibuster, despite his campaign pledge to work as an “independent.” In a statement, Kelly detailed his openness to give one party unilateral power in an effort to protect “the vote-by-mail system.” “If campaign finance and voting rights reforms are blocked again this week, I will support the proposed changes to pass them with a majority vote. Protecting the vote-by-mail system used by a majority of Arizonans and getting dark money out of our elections is too important to let fall victim to Washington dysfunction,” the Democrat explained. Far-left members of the Democratic Party have increasingly called for a change in the Senate rules, eliminating the 60-vote threshold for some pieces of legislation. Largely, the efforts are due to lack of support for key pieces of President Joe Biden’s agenda among members of the legislative body. On the other hand, Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), who also campaigned to be a moderate lawmaker, opposed the highly-consequential move. “Coward Mark Kelly has finally admitted...
    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Roger Stone is threatening to run for governor in Florida if Ron DeSantis doesn’t pledge to serve all four years in office if he’s reelected. Stone told CBS Miami’s Jim DeFede that he would run as a Libertarian or some other third-party candidate to siphon votes away from DeSantis and cost him reelection. “Look, I have no illusions about my ability to become elected governor of Florida. That’s not the point here. I believe that Gov. DeSantis, assuming he’s going to run for reelection, should pledge to the people of Florida that he will fill out all four years of a second term,” said Stone. “What I don’t want to see is for him to be reelected and then immediately abandon Florida to run off and run for president, particularly if he’s running against Donald Trump.” READ MORE: Howard County Bus Drivers Stage 'Sick Out' To Ask For Better Pay And BenefitsBut what if Trump doesn’t run for president in 2024? Stone maintained that the governor should still finish out his second term if reelected. “I think it...

I'll work hard for those who didn't support me, as hard for them as I did for those who didn't vote for me. That's the job of a president, to represent all of us, not just our base or our party. This is not a partisan moment. This must be an American moment."  Biden's speech projected stability, humanity and trustworthiness, qualities that he portrayed as the antidote to four years of President Donald Trump. Yet he never once mentioned Trump by name, surprising some viewers who expected Biden's speech to echo searing critiques of Trump delivered earlier this week by former President Barack Obama and others.  Read more: Here are the highlights of the DNC's final night This is not to say that Biden ignored his opponent entirely.
