Ron DeSantis of Florida is getting showered with national attention as he rises in GOP circles. Many Republicans want him to run for president, but he'll have to win reelection in Florida first. Ron DeSantis of Florida. Thanks to frequent appearances on Fox News and his friendship with former President Donald Trump, DeSantis went from a little-known US House member to governor of one of the largest swing states in the country. To have a credible shot at the most powerful job in the world, DeSantis first must win his gubernatorial reelection in Florida in 2022, and he hasn't officially filed yet.

WASHINGTON — Republicans are beginning to catch up with Democrats in online fundraising, creating, for the first time in modern history, a political landscape where both parties are largely funded by small donations, for better — or some say worse. In the last quarter, the GOP’s three main party committees raised from small donations amounts nearly identical to their Democratic counterparts. Campaign finance laws give an advantage to raising lots of small donations instead of big checks from wealthy individuals, since donations are maxed out at $2,900. While small dollars tend to be romanticized — Democrats’ voting rights bill includes provision to encourage such giving by matching $6 in public funds for every $1 in small donations — some see a big downside to empowering small donors, who tend to be the most ideological and online. “Candidates know that if they can successfully stoke this culture of outrage that is likely to open the spigot of small donations.”

Protesters stuck an "eviction note" on the front door of Nancy Pelosi's San Francisco property. The note urged the House speaker to work to extend the federal eviction moratorium.

The note was placed on the front door of Pelosi's San Francisco property and demanded that the House speaker reconvene Congress to push for an extension to the moratorium. "We call upon you to immediately call Congress to session to vote to extend the eviction moratorium and keep people in their homes.

WASHINGTON — U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said on Friday there will be no nationwide mandate for Americans to get a Covid-19 vaccine, clarifying comments she made earlier during a televised interview. I was referring to mandates by private institutions and portions of the federal government," Walensky wrote in a Twitter post. "There will be no federal mandate." Earlier on Friday, when asked by a Fox News Channel interviewer, "Are you for mandating a vaccine on a federal level," Walensky said: "That's something that I think the administration is looking into." The United States is experiencing rising numbers of Covid-19 cases, especially in areas with lower rates of vaccination.

About 560,000 incarcerated people received $783.5 million in stimulus payments, Fox News reported. By May 2020, incarcerated people had received 84,861 payments totalling $100 million, the IG report said. Dead people received 1.2 million payments totalling $1.6 billion. Colin Scholl and Lisa Strawn, who were both incarcerated, argued in their complaint that the "IRS has no legal basis for withholding, retracting, or asking others to intercept stimulus payments to incarcerated persons." She wrote that excluding anyone from stimulus payments solely based on whether they were incarcerated was "arbitrary and capricious."

CDC Director Rochelle Walensky defended her agency's decision to shift its guidance on masking. The CDC this week recommended that fully vaccinated people mask up in areas of high transmission. This weighed heavily on me to have to do this," Walensky said during a Friday appearance on Fox News. According to data from the CDC, 49.5% of people in the US are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, while 57.4% of people in the US are at least partially vaccinated. Walensky previously said the change this week was a result of new information on the transmission of the highly contagious Delta variant.

GOP Sen. Ron Johson said he would support a vaccine mandate only for an "incredibly deadly" disease but not COVID-19. COVID-19 has killed more than 613,000 people in the US and more than 4.2 million globally, per Johns Hopkins University. "No," Johnson said during a Friday evening appearance on Fox News' "The Ingraham Angle" when asked whether he would ever support any sort of vaccine mandate. Over the past week, vaccine mandates have become more commonplace as cases of the disease rise. Still, Walensky said Friday there would be no federal vaccine mandate for Americans, Reuters reported.

MyPillow Chief Executive Mike Lindell said he is pulling ads from Fox News after the network said it wouldn't take one of his commercials. Lindell said he spent almost $50 million on the network last year, and about $19 million so far this year, to run his ads. Since the 2020 presidential election, Lindell has been claiming adamantly that there was widespread voter fraud, with votes stolen from President Donald Trump. Voting-machine maker Dominion Voting Systems sued Lindell and MyPillow in February for defamation. Fox News parent Fox Corp. and News Corp., the Journal's parent, have common ownership.

Hunter Biden said "f--- 'em," when asked how he responds to critics who say his art is overpriced. Hunter Biden is "complexly famous, but not yet for art," Young told Politico, adding, "Guess people will pay for a known last name." Biden's art venture is the latest ethical dilemma his business dealings have posed for his father. However, nonpartisan experts and government officials testified that despite the optics of Hunter Biden's work with Burisma, there was no evidence that his father was involved with his dealings or that Hunter Biden's activities ran afoul of the law. "In one way, I think I'm the most famous artist in the MAGA world, at least," he added.

MyPillow to Pull Ads From Fox News in Disagreement With Network

The chief executive of MyPillow Inc., one of Fox News’s big advertisers, said he is pulling his ads from the network after a disagreement over a proposed commercial. Mike Lindell said he made the decision after Fox News declined to run a commercial linked to his efforts to promote his claims of widespread fraud in the 2020 presidential election. Security and election officials have said there is no proof of widespread election fraud. “It’s unfortunate Mr. Lindell has chosen to pause his commercial time on FOX News given the level of success he’s experienced in building his brand through advertising on the number one cable news network,” Fox News said in a statement. Mr. Lindell said he wanted to cancel the ads as soon as possible and that he had told his ad buyer to inform Fox News.

Fortune supports the new guidance, which has been widely praised by experts like her, saying it will surely save lives. Suddenly, cities and counties are reinstating indoor mask mandates that they just triumphantly repealed — now with the CDC's support. The guidance announced Tuesday has been met with outrage from many Republican officials and caused frustration among the already vaccinated. She doesn't find it too much of an inconvenience and has still been wearing masks when she runs errands like going to the pharmacy. Like so many others, Fortune of Harvard is sick of wearing a mask at work and in public places.

The Washington Post surveyed people's news sources and vaccine hesitancy. A quarter of people relying on Facebook for their news said they wouldn't get a COVID-19 shot. The Washington Post published its findings after Facebook got into a fight with the White House over vaccine hesitancy in the US. Facebook also offered its own statistics, saying 85% of Facebook users in the US have been, or want to be, vaccinated. The Washington Post analysis said this statistic wasn't helpful in trying to understand Facebook's effect on vaccine hesitancy because it didn't compare Facebook users with non-users.

The Fox News hosts mocked the testimony at Tuesday's January 6 committee hearing. Carlson snickered at one officer's testimony, while Ingraham gave out "awards" for "performances." Both hosts selectively used footage to exclude testimony about racial abuse and violence. 'Today's best performances'On "The Ingraham Angle," Ingraham introduced "the Angle awards for today's best performances." Ingraham's show honed in on the pen comment alone, displaying a graphic of a trophy with "Best Exaggerated Performance" emblazoned on it.

GOP Rep. Jim Jordan said on Tuesday he had spoken to Donald Trump on January 6. Jordan was barred from serving on the Jan. 6 committee over concerns he was involved in the events. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Jordan could be called as a witness by the Jan. 6 panel. In a Tuesday interview with Fox News' Bret Baier, Jordan discussed the opening day of the House Select Committee appointed to investigate the January 6 riot.

Multiple officers gave damning testimony about the Capitol riot at a Tuesday congressional hearing. Later that day Jim Banks accused Nancy Pelosi of scripting their testimonies, which she denied. Banks made the claim of Pelosi's authorship in a Tuesday night appearance on Fox News' "The Ingraham Angle." He told "The Ingraham Angle" on Tuesday: "Everything that you saw today was carefully scripted by Speaker Pelosi and her staff." Banks' office did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.

Capitol Police Officer Harry Dunn delivered some of the most emotional testimony during Tuesday's Jan. 6 riot inquiry, describing how the mob hurled racial epithets at him and bemoaning the state of America. "It was just so overwhelming," said Dunn, who joined three other police officers at the first hearing held by the House select committee. In April, he told MSNBC the combination of racist slurs and physical attacks had Black officers facing a "different" battle while fending off the mob. "One officer told me he had never, in his 40 years of life, had been called a n----- to his face, and that streak ended on January 6th. For months, Dunn was among the most active Capitol police officers pushing for post-riot accountability.

An Arizona GOP election official tore into the state's election audit on Fox News Monday. Maricopa County Recorder Stephen Richer told Fox News Monday said that continued claims of election fraud in the county by Trump and his associates were "false." Donald Trump repeated his baseless claims of election fraud in Arizona at a rally over the weekend, claiming among other things that hundreds of thousands of ballots had been printed on illegal paper. State Democrats characterized it in April as an attempt to legitimize baseless claims of election fraud. He said two other baseless claims repeated by Harrington were false: "Some of these claims that we thought were like the undead have come back, I guess."

Mitch McConnell sought to assign blame to Democrats for the slowing US vaccination rate. In remarks on the Senate floor Monday, McConnell claimed that Joe Biden had taken over a highly successful vaccination program from President Donald Trump. "This turn toward pessimism is especially stunning and especially sad because President Biden took office with wind at his back." McConnell's comments come amid debate in recent weeks about why the US rate of people getting vaccinated is lagging behind that of other developed nations. Polls indicate a partisan divide in the willingness to get vaccinated, with Republicans less likely to say they are planning on getting the shot.

The CDC now recommends masks again, even for vaccinated people, in some indoor settings. And in Hawaii, the government is waiting until more residents are vaccinated before lifting its indoor mask mandate. In nearby San Mateo County, masks are now required, even for fully vaccinated people, inside county offices, clinics, and public facilities. Los Angeles County also reinstated its indoor mask mandate on July 18 following a sharp uptick in cases.

Fox and Newsmax did however air complaints about the hearing before and afterward. Immediately after the hearing, which included a video compilation of the assault, Fox anchor Bret Baier said the hearing "was an eye-opener" for "anybody watching who... thought it was not violent." "A massive wave of former Fox News viewers have abandoned Fox and have found a home at OAN," Herring claimed at the time. Saturday was one of them: Fox didn't air Trump's speech, but Newsmax did, so Newsmax surged ahead in the ratings for about an hour. The banners on both Fox and Newsmax cast the hearing in political language by calling it "DEM-LED."

Senators from both parties worked over the weekend to try to finish the deal so that Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer could try again as early as Monday to open floor debate on the measure. Republicans blocked the Democrat's effort to start floor action last week, complaining they lacked the details of the deal. Senator Rob Portman, the lead Republican negotiator on the bipartisan infrastructure plan, said Sunday on ABC's "This Week" that spending on mass transit was the only issue outstanding, and agreement could be reached this week. Democrat Mark Warner, also a negotiator, told Fox News Sunday the text of the infrastructure proposal could be ready on Monday.
