8:33 am
new polls show the democrats largely don't want president biden to run for a second term. president biden has said he will be running for reelection. the polls suggest governor newsome would be vice president kamala harris in a hypothetical matchup if both were to run for the presidency in 24. it's one of those things i've tried to say. no. no way. in every way i possibly can, including science , and i don't know what else. i don't know what language in fact, i may need advice and counsel. what's the language to express? absolutely no. this morning, governor newsom is meeting with vice president kamala harris, the white house chief of staff ron klain and first lady jill biden, as the president is, of course in the middle east. the biden administration warning pharmacies now denying women certain medications could be a violation of civil rights, even if those medications could cause an abortion, the department of health and human services issued this guidance to the 60,000 retail pharmacies in the country
