Out-cue: them from expanding]
TAG: Correspondent Jeremy House reporting. Powell traveled to York on Monday to learn about the efforts of the long-time manufacturing hub to diversify its economy.
VERBATIM: Federal Reserve officials typically gather many of their insights and observations about the economy from some of the top Ph.D. economists in Washington. However, Powell heard from small business people who are grappling personally with inflation, high interest rates, labor shortages and other challenges of the post-pandemic economy. They told Powell they are still having trouble finding all the workers they need. Higher interest rates have discouraged some of them from expanding.

The Trump campaign wants the third Republican presidential debate to be canceled. Trump campaign senior advisers are calling on Republican party officials to “immediately cancel the upcoming debate in Miami,” even though the former president is not planning to participate. The advisers said the GOP should “end all future debates” so the party can focus on and prevent “Democrats’ efforts to steal the 2024 election.” The statement came on the same day an angry Donald Trump showed up for the start of a New York City trial in a fraud lawsuit.Listen Download

The former President is kicking off his 2024 campaign with two stops along the East Coast. More from Correspondent Bernie Bennett.
Former President Donald Trump kicked off his 2024 White House bid with a stop Saturday in New Hampshire before heading to South Carolina, appearances in early-voting states marking the first campaign events since announcing his latest run more than two months ago.
Those states hold two of the party’s first three nominating contests, giving them enormous power in selecting the nominee.
Mr. Trump and his allies hope the events will offer a show of force behind the former president after a sluggish start to his campaign. In recent weeks, his backers have reached out to political operatives and elected officials to secure support for Mr. Trump at a critical point when other Republicans are preparing their own expected challenges.

The fastest growing Southern Baptist churches aren’t southern
VERBATIM: According to the latest numbers from Life Way Research, SBC congregations in New England grew by one percent over the last five years, while churches in all other SBC regions shrunk. There aren’t very many Southern Baptist congregations in New England, but those that ARE there are getting bigger. The nation’s largest Protestant denomination has re-asserted its commitment to church-planting this year in every part of America. Michael Harrington, SRN News.
