Gov. Cuomo rebukes President Trump's suggestion of delaying election
Aug 02 2020
A top donor to Harris's erstwhile presidential campaign, who spoke anonymously to discuss the issue candidly, said Bass' history could be a problem for Biden in Florida, where Cuban-Americans are a key demographic, and suggested Trump would seek to exploit it.
There are plenty of myths out there about voting by mail - some of which, unfortunately, have been spread by President Donald Trump and other officials. The suggestion was immediately criticised by leaders of the opposition Democratic Party.
The Republicans supported Hayes, the former governor of OH and Civil War hero, who also was known to be a reformer.
"It is yet another way in which President Donald Trump as president has violated an important norm that no previous president has dared to violate, whether Democrat or Republican", he said. "I want to have the election", he told a White House press briefing. During a closed-door House briefing, U.S. intelligence officials on Friday discounted the possibility of foreign countries mass producing fake ballots to interfere in the November elections, contradicting Trump's continued insistence that mail-in voting poses a significant threat to election security. For its part, Alaska has long had a mail-in voting option - voters can request an absentee ballot for any reason.
"But I wake up every single day with a heart full of hope and here is why: Vice President Biden is meeting the moment", she added.
Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger of IL retweeted the President, but added the comment: "Reminder: Election dates are set by Congress".
USPS is recommending that voters who are voting by mail send in their ballots at least one week before Election Day. The presidential elections are scheduled for November 3.
"Too much is at stake for our community and we believe having a Black woman vice presidential candidate is the clearest path to the victory in November that our country needs to move forward", said Rev. Matthew Watley, of Kingdom Fellowship AME Church in Silver Spring, Maryland, who signed the letter.
"A group of us really felt we needed to organize and speak out and correct the record because she has tremendous support", Kounalakis said. "Where we're at today isn't where we'll be in November".
Mr Biden, with his Senate and White House experience, may be better positioned to deliver on change swiftly. Democrats control the House of Representatives and some have already said they will not support any delay to the vote.
For decades, the first and often only foreign policy shift that new presidents of both parties directed on their first day in office, and Mr Trump was no exception, was abortion-related.
While American law allows wide latitude to the state and local governments in the conduct of a Federal election, the date of the election is cast in stone as the first Tuesday of November, which means this time around polling will take place on 3 November.
So how do you go about voting absentee by mail in Alaska? "His comment is aimed at states that have a different process than we do, he's fine with absentee ballots, and I don't think he's questioning Kentucky's process".
Biden also has said he would immediately restore daily press briefings at the White House, State Department and Pentagon, events once deemed critical to communicate US policy that the Trump administration has all but abandoned. So I'll be an absentee voter.
