Gaetz is no stranger to voting against hurricane relief as the lawmaker didn't vote in favor of a $15 billion relief package as Hurricane Irma – where at least 92 people died in the contiguous United States – approached Florida in 2017, the Miami Herald reported.

KYIV (Reuters) -Ukrainian troops said on Saturday they had taken the key bastion of Lyman in occupied eastern Ukraine, a stinging defeat that prompted a close ally of President Vladimir Putin to call for the possible use of low-grade nuclear weapons. The capture came just a day after Putin proclaimed the annexation of four Ukrainian regions - including Donetsk, where Lyman is located - and placed them under Russia's nuclear umbrella, at a ceremony that was condemned by Kyiv and the West as an illegitimate farce.
No doubt Putin's allies—like the talking heads at Fox News, the leaders of the MAGA caucus on Capitol Hill, and Putinistas across Europe—will warn that to even speak of the need to remove Putin from office will provoke him, perhaps even lead him to unleash nuclear weapons in Ukraine or against the West. How do we know that? Because that was the response to Biden's moment of public honesty and realism on this issue.

The New York attorney general's lawsuit accusing Donald Trump and his company of fraud has been assigned to a state court judge who repeatedly ruled against the former president in related subpoena disputes — including holding him in contempt, fining him $110,000 and forcing him to sit for a deposition. Trump's lawyers are objecting to Manhattan Judge Arthur Engoron's continued involvement and accused Attorney General Letitia James' office of attempting to “judge shop” because, in paperwork seeking assignment of a judge, it noted Engoron's knowledge of the case and linked the lawsuit and subpoena disputes as "related" matters. In a letter Thursday to the court's administrative judge, Trump lawyer Alina Habba argued that the lawsuit should instead be assigned to the court's Commercial Division, which is set up to handle complex corporate litigation.

Greg Abbott (R) and Democratic candidate Beto O'Rourke traded barbs and sought to paint each other as inherently out of touch with the state in their first and only televised debate on Friday evening.

While the candidates touched on some policy stances, the one-hour debate was a mostly civil affair while the candidates did open old wounds and tried to paint each other as extremists.
