Out-cue: changed since 1984]
TAG: Correspondent Jeremy House reporting. Labor unions argue that making striking workers eligible for benefits would not have much of an impact on the fund. Lawmakers could attempt to pass the law anyway, but it’s been decades since a governor’s veto was overruled in California.
VERBATIM: While state lawmakers passed a bill to make California the third state to do this, Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom vetoed it over the weekend. Newsom says he rejected the bill because the fund the state uses to pay unemployment benefits is in debt. The money comes from a tax on businesses that hasn’t changed since 1984.

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.

Most Americans don’t want kids viewing pornography at school
VERBATIM: A new poll released by WPA Intelligence to the Christian Post finds 90% of registered voters say the graphic pictures and text in a book such as Maia Kobabe’s “Gender Queer” are NOT appropriate for children to be looking at in the public schools. Republicans are more likely to feel this way, but the survey indicates that more than 80% of Democrats ALSO believe that book should NOT be made available to students. Michael Harrington, SRN News.
