Ohio congressman Tim Ryan is running for the U.S. Senate, trying as hard as he can to sound like a regular guy fighting for you, but he’s still coming up short. Ryan is a Democrat opposing Republican J.D. Vance to replace retiring Sen. Rob Portman. And his record makes one thing clear: He’s never wavered in supporting Biden’s Build Back Better agenda from day one. That makes him just as dangerous as any other Democrat seeking office and is reason enough for Ohioans to vote against him in November.
FORT MYERS, Fla., Oct 5 (Reuters) - U.S. President Joe Biden met with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis on Wednesday to tour the devastation from Hurricane Ian, and stressed the need for a united federal and state effort for the lengthy recovery ahead.
Ian's greatest impacts are in four heavily Republican counties critical for GOP efforts to win elections for governor and U.S. Senate.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Two Democratic senators urged the Education Department to strengthen regulations against excluding kids from class because of behaviors related to a disability — a practice known as informal removal. Since the pandemic began, parents of kids with disabilities say the practice is on the rise, denying their kids the legal right to an education. Disability rights advocates and legal experts say the removals likely circumvent protections for these children, who are not supposed to be disciplined because of their disability. In a report Tuesday, The Associated Press and The Hechinger Report documented the impact of these informal removals on children and families. In interviews with 20 families in 10 states, parents said they were called repeatedly, sometimes less than an hour into the school day, to pick up their children. Some said they left work so frequently they lost their jobs. The Education Department in May said it intended to strengthen protections for students with disabilities through possible regulatory amendments to Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, which protects people from being discriminated against based on their disability.
