Mark Kelly, A Potential Democratic VP Candidate, Endorses The PRO Act
Quick Glance: Senator Mark Kelly Surfaces as Unexpected VP Contender for Kamala Harris
  • Senator Mark Kelly (D-Ariz.) is being considered as an unexpected contender for the vice presidency for Kamala Harris, given her status as the likely Democratic presidential nominee.

  • With his background as a former fighter pilot, astronaut, and husband of former Rep. Gabby Giffords, along with his election victory in Arizona as a crucial swing state, Kelly, a relatively lesser-known senator, could be a robust VP candidate.

  • Democrats are exploring potential VP contenders for Harris like Governors Gretchen Whitmer (Mich.), Josh Shapiro (Pa.), Roy Cooper (N.C.), and Andy Beshear (Ky.) to bolster Harris's nomination.

  • Although concerns exist regarding Kelly not being the best match for Harris due to both serving in the Senate, his veteran experience and backing of Harris are seen as compelling factors.

Quick Glance: Escalating Protests in Kenya: Pressure on Ruto
  • Police in Kenya utilized tear gas to disperse a large crowd of protesters aiming to exert pressure on President William Ruto after he had made concessions to demonstrators.

  • The ongoing protests pose the biggest crisis of Ruto's two-year tenure and have persisted even after the withdrawal of $2.7 billion in tax hikes and the dismissal of nearly the entire cabinet of the president.

  • The demands of protesters for Ruto's resignation due to mismanagement, corruption, and the deaths of dozens of protesters in previous antigovernment rallies are prominently highlighted.

  • With over 30 percent of government revenue solely allocated to servicing debt interest, Ruto is caught between lenders' calls for deficit reductions and a populace in distress over escalating cost of living.

Quick Glance: Kamala Harris' Fight for Climate and Energy
  • Vice President Kamala Harris is supported by climate advocates and has proven to be a champion for environmental justice. Her climate activism spans her career, from suing oil companies to endorsing the Green New Deal resolution.

  • With rising global temperatures, we are at a critical point for the planet. Scientists stress the urgency of a massive shift to clean energy by the end of the decade to minimize damage. Harris is seen as a clear alternative to her Republican opponent Trump regarding climate action.

  • Democrats plan to leverage climate change as a central theme in the 2024 campaign, particularly contrasting Trump's backward energy policies. The focus is on highlighting a stark contrast between Trump and Harris and mobilizing young voters through her climate agenda.

  • A potential second term for Democrats would involve continuing Biden's climate agenda. Harris would have to decide early in her administration how much the US would reduce its climate pollution by 2035. Her relationship with Biden's environmental cabinet heads, including EPA Administrator Michael Regan, is strong, and she is viewed as a proactive leader who delves deep into critical issues.
