Marc-Andre Fleury happy to stay in Vegas, share net in 2020-21

  Marc-Andre Fleury happy to stay in Vegas, share net in 2020-21 Having two competent goalies will be crucial this coming season, and the Knights realize, even with their talented roster, that a reliable tandem is key. Fleury himself even admits that Lehner is the future for the Golden Knights and will almost certainly serve as the “starter” once he is back to full strength. And the soon-to-be 36-year-old Fleury is also better off as a “backup” at this point in his career.

State politics reporters will be working extra hard over the next two months — or however long it will take to know the results of the election — so it’ s to Deborah Birx, the White House coronavirus response coordinator, speaks to reporters in the rotunda of the State Capitol in Lincoln, Neb., on Aug.

This is a list of heads of state , heads of governments, and other rulers in the year 2020 . Algeria. President – Abdelmadjid Tebboune, President of Algeria (2019–present).

This year has been epic for political news, and many of its biggest story lines — the coronavirus, racial injustice and the 2020 campaign — have played out in states at least as much as they have in Washington. With that in mind, The Fix has revived an old tradition and compiled its 2020 list of reporters to follow in each state and D.C.

So much of what we know about those major stories has come from the reporters covering officials in those states. Of course, 2020 also exacerbated the ongoing crisis in local news as the economy slowdown led to advertising shortfalls.

Senators eyeing more forward help?

  Senators eyeing more forward help? The Senators have already added to their forward group this offseason with the signing of Evgenii Dadonov and the acquisition of Austin Watson, but they might not be done adding up front just yet.

2020 will test how we work together to address critical challenges at home and across borders. Here is five global issues we’ll be watching for in 2020 . systems that sustain us.” And the 2019 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Madrid (COP26) did not send a strong signal of positive intent.

“With so many local and regional news organizations struggling right now — some for their very survival — their reporters are working harder than ever to find the time and resources to do the job that we need them to do. And that is to hold public officials to account on behalf of citizens,” said Margaret Sullivan, a Washington Post columnist and author of “Ghosting the News: Local Journalism and the Crisis of American Democracy.”

The biggest and most state-centric politics story may be one that’s now unfolding: voting and the election during the pandemic. How that’s done has been largely up to state officials, and the most furious fighting over it is happening in state capitols and courts.

Thank you to all the readers, colleagues and friends of The Fix who recommended people for this list. It’s not exhaustive (tell me who I’m missing via email or tweet). But if you want to know what’s happening as 2020 barrels toward its climax, these are the journalists — including digital, broadcast and print reporters, as well as some editors and pundits — you should follow.

Pack the court? Battles between Republicans and Democrats fuel clash over Supreme Court's future

  Pack the court? Battles between Republicans and Democrats fuel clash over Supreme Court's future The Constitution does not set the number of justices. Created in 1789 with six, the court has veered from five to 10, settling at nine 150 years ago.Fuming at what President Donald Trump and Republicans have done since 2016 to turn the court to the right, they could fight back with legislation, Senate rules changes – even by granting statehood (and two Senate seats) to the District of Columbia or Puerto Rico.

This is a list of offenders executed in the United States in 2020 . As of October 17, 2020 , fourteen inmates have been executed in the United States in 2020

In 2020 , Democratic voters faced a crucial choice: who should be the candidate to take on Trump in the November election? From consensus-minded-pragmatists in the party' s moderate lane, to a Democratic socialist, the contenders put forward a wide range of visions for the future of their party, and country.

How to watch election night 2020: the definitive hour-by-hour guide .
Election Day is nearly here, and in a matter of hours we’ll find out whether this is the end of the campaign — or just the beginning of a protracted fight over who won. At 7 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time, which applies to all times mentioned here), we’ll start to see returns from Florida, Ohio, North Carolina and Georgia. Trump won all four of these states in 2016 and needs to win them again in 2020. The good news for viewers is that we should see relatively quick results in these key states, all of which are allowed to start processing (i.e., opening envelopes, validating signatures or even counting) their early votes and mail ballots before Election Day.
