    A primary election voter enters a Tampa, Florida, polling place on Aug. 23, 2022.Octavio Jones | Getty Images Most women ages 50 and up plan to vote in this November's midterm elections, but half of them have not decided which candidates they will vote for, a new AARP poll finds. One key issue they do agree on is protecting Social Security, the national survey of 800 female voters ages 50 and up found. Women voters mostly agree they want benefit cuts prevented. Three-quarters of respondents say such a move would personally help them. The national survey was conducted by phone and online between Sept. 6 and 13.

    SACRAMENTO —  Two days after kicking off his reelection campaign, Gov. Gavin Newsom replaced his opening upbeat message about California with a dire warning that his highest-profile Republican opponent “stands with Donald Trump” and “wants to roll back abortion rights.” It’s a pivot to a familiar strategy for the Democratic governor. Newsom released the new 30-second ad Wednesday, one day after the U.S. Supreme Court confirmed a draft opinion was leaked that, if signed by five justices, would rescind existing federal legal protections for women seeking abortions. The news quickly catapulted reproductive rights to the top of the list of key issues in midterm elections around the country and Newsom’s reelection campaign for a second and final four-year term in office. It also places the state and its Democratic leader back in the national spotlight, relying on the same political blueprint he used to successfully beat back the recall — a carefully crafted campaign focused on the stakes for Californians who feel their beliefs are under attack by ultra-conservative forces. The ad singles out Newsom’s main GOP opponent, state...
    As violent crime continues to rise across America, attorney Leo Terrell joins ‘Americas Newsroom’ urging NYC Mayor Eric Adams to call out prosecutors for ‘soft-on-crime’ policies after two young NYPD officers were killed. LEO TERRELL: …the gun issue is the issue that the Democrats want to talk about. What needs to be focused on are the career criminals that are constantly being released every day and not being held incarcerated. That's the key. And can I mention one other thing: if you look, America needs to know what makes up the police department. Please scan the sea of blue. You see black, white, brown, young officers that represents America's finest… that sea of blue represents the best and the brightest of America. I think Adams' honeymoon period is over. I think Adams needs to call out the prosecutors and go after these guys. WATCH THE FULL ‘AMERICA’S NEWSROOM' INTERVIEW BELOW:  Video This article was written by Fox News staff.

    A variety of factors undoubtedly contributed to Republican Glenn Youngkin’s victory in the Virginia gubernatorial election last week, but only one is being completely dismissed by Democrats and their allies in the media. President Joe Biden’s tumbling approval ratings, a struggling economy, COVID-19 restrictions and general “wokeness” have all been used as scapegoats, at least in part, for Democrat Terry McAuliffe’s loss in a state Biden won by double-digits in 2020. Conservatives have pointed to Critical Race Theory (CRT) being taught in Virginia schools, particularly in Loudoun County, as another key contributor to backlash against the Democratic Party.
    Mental health has become a big issue at these Olympics and we should not be surprised.  The Olympics are the ultimate and this one had been five years in the making, the stakes are the highest and exposure is the greatest. Fault lines were bound to appear. My experience is that every case is different, every athlete is different. Things can change and unravel quickly in short periods of time. So, although people want definitive answers, guidelines and protocols, I can't offer you that. Nobody can. Gymnastics superstar Simone Biles has pulled out of several events due to mental ill-health Ben Stokes has decided to take 'an indefinite break from cricket' to look after his wellbeing I have some broad principles which I have used in my rugby coaching career and became clearer and reinforced as director of sport for the British Olympic Association at three Olympics.  The first and most important is to always appreciate you are dealing with flesh and bones, human beings, albeit amazing physical specimens with seemingly super powers. These don't make anybody immune...
    (CNN)This week, US Vice President Kamala Harris will spend two days south of the border, during her first international trip to Guatemala and Mexico to meet local leaders and help address the root causes of undocumented migration. The official agenda is focused on economic development, climate and food insecurity, strengthening the rule of law and deepening bilateral law enforcement cooperation, but violence and the means of violence -- weapons -- seem to be the elephant in the room. United States may be the ultimate destination for many migrants, but it is also the origin of many weapons employed in the violence driving them northward in the first place. On average, more than 500 firearms from the US cross the southern border each day. Yet for now, there's little sign that gun smuggling will be a priority at the Vice President's meetings in Guatemala and Mexico. Its an issue that everyone knows is there, but theres no action on either side.

    The grueling final Senate debate on President Biden's $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill delivered an unsettling realization to progressives—the showdown on the filibuster and nearly everything we hold dear (racial justice, social justice, voting rights, a living wage, immigration, climate change, LGBTQ issues, and more) is already upon us.  Not only did eight centrist Senate Democrats band together to kill Sen. Bernie Sanders' $15 per hour minimum wage amendment, Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia went on to weaken the bill's unemployment insurance benefits, cutting them from $400 to $300 per week with an early September expiration date. (Fortunately, some researchers have estimated the $100 change doesn't reduce the anti-poverty impact of the bill—either way, the official poverty rate drops from 12.3% to 8.3% under the Democratic plan.) And Sen. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona gave her bestie Minority Leader Mitch McConnell a friendly tap on the back just before delivering an obscenely tone-deaf display of indifference to the dignity of working-class Americans with her thumbs-down vote on the minimum wage amendment from the Senate floor.  These outright displays of disdain for the plight...

    (CNN)Both opponents and supporters of abortion rights are investing heavily in the Georgia Senate runoff election next week, underscoring in their get-out-the-vote and fundraising efforts the crucial significance that a US Senate majority would offer each side as they look to advance their agenda under a new administration.That's why many of those activists have spent their holiday season working to draw supporters to the polls, whether for Democrats Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff, or incumbent Republican Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue. Early voting wrapped this week and Election Day is Tuesday, January 5. If Democrats win both seats, they'll control the chamber with a 50-50 split decided by incoming Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. The Senate majority would determine whether measures expanding abortion access backed by the Democrat-led House and Democratic President-elect Joe Biden would meet a receptive vote or a thorny end. And on a much broader scale, whichever party takes the Senate holds the power to confirm or reject Biden's picks for the federal judiciary, a key part of determining national abortion policy as conservative state legislatures...

    YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) - Negotiations between two separate fruit packing companies in Yakima, Washington and their employees are at a standstill over compensation. Employees at fruit packing companies Matson Fruit and Columbia Reach Fruit have demanded higher pay since the strikes started last month, the Yakima Herald-Republic reported. In an email to the Herald-Republic on Monday, Matson Fruit co-owner and company manager Jordan Matson said the company has focused on expanding safety measures in response to new guidance released last week by Democratic Gov. Jay Inslee’s office amid the coronavirus pandemic.
