Roe v. Wade, the presidential race, winter storms, Israeli hostages, and India’s new temple

Governor of Florida Ron DeSantis declared on Sunday that he is withdrawing from the 2024 presidential race and supporting the former president Donald Trump. As a result, Nikki Haley, the former governor of South Carolina, is the only contender challenging Trump in the GOP primary, but she won’t have much time to catch up to him. The New Hampshire primary is just one day away, and according to a recent CNN survey, Trump has 50% of the support of potential Republican primary voters in the state, compared to Haley’s 39%. Following a poor second-place result in the Iowa Republican primary last week, DeSantis withdrew his candidacy. In the New Hampshire survey, he received just 6% of the vote, which is less than the 10% required by Republican Party rules to secure delegates there.

 

The Roe v. Wade ruling, which gave Americans the federal constitutional right to an abortion, was handed down 51 years ago today. The statute was then overturned by the Supreme Court in 2022, which held that states should control abortion rights. This week, the Biden administration intends to launch its first abortion-focused advertisement of the year on the airways in battleground states. It will feature a powerful, moving testimonies from a woman who has been directly impacted by a state restriction on abortion, and she will place the responsibility squarely on the shoulders of former President Donald Trump. In an attempt to further energize voters behind reproductive rights in the first presidential election following the Supreme Court’s historic ruling, the campaign is making an organized effort to highlight the topic for the first time.

 

Warmer air this week may increase the risk of ice and floods for several regions after the US saw extremely cold temperatures over the weekend. Additionally, another devastating winter storm is expected to reach parts of the Plains and South today. At least 82 people have died in 13 states this month as a result of a string of winter storms. After more weather-related deaths were reported by emergency management organizations in Oregon, Mississippi, and Tennessee on Sunday, the death toll increased. Through at least Tuesday, the most immediate potential threats, according to meteorologists, will be brought to eastern Texas and portions of the Lower Mississippi River Valley by the warmer air. The region is currently facing flash flooding and severe rainfall that might affect almost 37 million people.
