Fmr Gillum Chief of Staff Campaigns for Mayor Against Old Boss' Record -- 'Tallahassee Had the Highest Number of Murders in History Last Year'

10 hours 31 sec ago
Although Florida Democratic gubernatorial nominee Andrew Gillum’s track record as mayor has seemingly been of little interest to many in the Sunshine State’s political media, one of the hopefuls running to replace Gillum as Tallahassee’s mayor is not ignoring it. According to a recently published article by Steve Stewart of Tallahassee Reports, former Gillum chief of staff and mayoral candidate Dustin Daniels is campaigning on improving upon what he called the city’s “highest number of murders in history last year.” The mailer, proclaiming Daniels will “move Tallahassee forward” as mayor, backs up a previous report that showed a significant increase in Florida’s capital city’s murder rate while Gillum served as mayor. As Stewart pointed out, Daniels’ claim contradicts claims from Gillum on improvements in public safety for Tallahassee while he served as mayor. “The message put forth by Daniels is at odds with the message of gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum, who is telling voters Tallahassee is already doing better due to the decline in crime for the first six months of 2018,” Stewart wrote. “In the process, Gillum is ignoring the decisions that contributed to the record-setting crimes rates in Tallahassee which include historical highs in murders.” Gillum faces Republican gubernatorial nominee Ron

12 hours 19 min ago
Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) doubled down Sunday on his stance as a “no” vote on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court. “I have made up my mind that I’m voting against Judge Kavanaugh, and that’s based on his jurisprudence,” Coons said on MSNBC’s “Kasie DC.” Coons added there needs to be a hearing “where it’s possible” Dr. Christine Blasey Ford has the “opportunity to present her allegations” of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh. He told host Kasie Hunt, “I think there are a few members on both sides, Republican and Democrat, where who they believe this week will make the difference in how they vote.” Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent

The U.S. is the Only Improving Economy in the World Right Now, Finance Chiefs Say

Sun, 09/23/2018 - 22:24
The United States has a huge advantage in the still-escalating global trade fights: it is the only major economy to score an ‘improving’ score in CNBC’s latest survey of corporate executives. The U.S. economy is viewed as “improving,” according to the latest quarterly CNBC Global CFO Council survey. China, which had been viewed as improving earlier in the year, was downgraded to just “stable.” The Eurozone, which had been viewed as “improving” for most of last year and in the first quarter of this year, entered its second quarter as merely “stable.”       The U.S. is also the only country to have scored “improving” in each of the previous four quarters. The results suggest that the U.S. is in a much stronger position than others to handle any economic drag from rising tariffs and retaliatory trade barriers.
