9/24/2020 5:42:27 PM

By Kathleen Ronayne   SACRAMENTO—Kamala Harris is poised to become a leading figure in the Democratic opposition to President Donald Trump's Supreme Court pick, with her status as both a lawmaker and vice presidential nominee putting her in the center of the fight. The California senator is in a unique role following the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Friday. She's Joe Biden's running mate and a member of the powerful Senate Judiciary Committee, which would hold a hearing on Trump's nominee. Since Biden selected Harris as his running...

9/24/2020 5:41:05 PM

By Michael Balsamo, Alanna Durkin Richer and Colleen Long   WASHINGTON (AP)—In a memo to U.S. attorneys obtained by The Associated Press, the Justice Department emphasized that federal prosecutors should aggressively go after demonstrators who cause violence—and even sedition charges could potentially apply. The sedition statute doesn't require proof of a plot to overthrow the government, the memo read. It instead could be used when a defendant tries to oppose the government's authority by force. Attorney General William Barr has been pushing his U.S....

AMERICA DISRUPTED: Troubles cleave a nation, and a city
9/24/2020 5:36:06 PM

By Josh Boak and Kat Stafford   SAGINAW, Mich. (AP)—It was difficult to celebrate America in Saginaw this year. The deadly coronavirus had torn through the county. Unemployment had surged five-fold. Weeks of protest over racial inequality left many debating what should be hallowed and what must be changed. But Tom Roy had given it his best. As the head of the July Fourth fireworks board, he struggled to save the display of red-rocketed flares and bursting peonies, fruitlessly seeking a venue that felt safe from the sickness. He couldn't do it. So Saginaw canceled...

9/24/2020 5:04:50 PM

By Lynn Elber   LOS ANGELES (AP)—Larry Wilmore has been down the road as a talk show host before, with a Comedy Central show that was here and gone in two seasons—taking with it his droll and incisive brand of satire. “Wilmore,” his new weekly series for the recently launched Peacock streaming service, came together on the fly but, as he describes it, promises to be a better fit for the writer, performer and producer of shows like “black-ish” and “The Mayor.” The half-hour show debuts Friday with soccer great Megan Rapinoe,...

Biden to focus on health care in Supreme Court debate
9/24/2020 5:01:37 PM

By Alexandra Jaffe   WILMINGTON, Del. (AP)—Joe Biden is expected to use the sudden Supreme Court vacancy to reinforce his argument that the upcoming election should be a referendum on President Donald Trump's handling of health care and the coronavirus. The death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg jolted the presidential campaign just six weeks before the election and as several states are already voting. Trump has seized on the opportunity to nominate a new justice to motivate his most loyal voters. Biden hopes to keep the focus on health care, which has proven to be a...

CDC changes, then retracts, its take on coronavirus spread
9/24/2020 5:00:39 PM

By Mike Stobbe   NEW YORK (AP)—The top U.S. public health agency has stirred confusion by posting—and then taking down—an apparent change in its position on how easily the coronavirus can spread from person to person on small droplets in the air. Officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say the virus spreads primarily through small airborne droplets, like those that fly through the air when someone coughs or sneezes. Most CDC guidance about social distancing is built around that idea, saying that 6 feet is a safe buffer between people who are...

9/24/2020 4:59:50 PM

By Alan Fram and Jim Salter   WASHINGTON (AP)—Scores of suburban districts are back in play in the GOP's long-shot attempt to win House control in November's election. Democrats who used health care to capture the majority in 2018 are emphasizing it anew, saying they'll shield voters from Republicans trying to tear coverage away during a pandemic. “This is as current an issue as can possibly be,” said Leslie Dach, who heads the Democratic-backed Protect Our Care Coalition. In some races, Republicans are talking up lawlessness to try stemming...
