Democrats Win One Senate Seat in Georgia, With Second Race Still Too Close to Call | Election News

00:05-07:12 The police officers involved in the shooting of Jacob Blake will not face any criminal charges, Kenosha County District Attorney Michael Graveley announced today. Blake, who is Black, was struck by seven bullets at close range on Aug. 23 as he walked away from Kenosha police officer Rusten Sheskey, who had answered a domestic disturbance call. The shooting left Blake paralyzed from the waist down. 07:13-07:48 Two crucial Georgia runoff elections are happening today — and they will determine which party controls the Senate. Democrat Jon Ossoff is running against Republican Sen. David Perdue, and Democrat Raphael Warnock is running against GOP incumbent Kelly Loeffler, who was appointed in 2019 to replace a retiree. 07:49-10:14 Trump called Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger over the weekend and, according to audio obtained by The Washington Post, attempted to pressure him to “find" the votes necessary to overturn the election results, which Joe Biden won. In the recording, Trump berated Raffensperger, tried to flatter him, begged him to act and threatened him with vague criminal consequences if he refused, at one point warning that Raffensperger was taking “a big risk.” 10:15-13:26 Journalist Carl Bernstein said Trump's call with Raffensperger amounts to a criminal act and is "far worse" than the Watergate scandal that ended Richard Nixon's presidency. Bernstein, along with his Washington Post colleague Bob Woodward, worked on the investigation into the Watergate affair during Nixon's presidency that ultimately led to Nixon’s resignation. 13:27-13:54 Some good immigration news from France! The government is fast-tracking almost 700 citizenship applications from foreign frontline workers who have distinguished themselves in the battle against COVID-19. A statement released on Tuesday by Junior Minister for Citizenship Marlene Schiappa's office reads: "Health care workers, cleaning professionals, childcare workers and store clerks ... They have proved their commitment to the nation. It is now up to the Republic to take a step toward them." 13:55-16:45  According to statistics from Johns Hopkins University, there are now over 85 million novel coronavirus cases worldwide. Over 1.8 million people have died. Over 48 million people have recovered globally. In the United States, over 20.8 million people have been diagnosed with COVID-19. America has had more than 354,000 deaths. There’s a new strain of Coronavirus called B117, and since the UK reported it last month, it’s been found in more than 30 countries. In the US, cases have been documented in Colorado, California, Florida and New York (in Saratoga Springs). In Los Angeles County, hospital beds are so scarce that ambulance drivers have been instructed not to transport patients with little chance of survival. 16:46-23:00 Millions of people have been surprised to learn that Hilaria Baldwin, wife of actor Alec Baldwin, and the mother of their five children, is not a Spaniard but an American who was born and raised in Boston and who was known, at least until 2009, as Hillary. The internet and the news media have been sharing evidence of Hillary speaking in a Spanish accent in videos and magazine interviews in ¡Hola! that cite her as a native Spanish speaker. 23:01-25:14 You can now own a scented candle that smells like the rapper, Drake! Revolve, the company he teamed up with, describes the scent the $80 candle emits as "Smooth musk fragrance (that) is introspective as in an interpretation of your beautiful self, yet extrovertive as how you would want others to see your bold and brilliant self." 25:15-31:44 Three of the five acts nominated for the 2021 Best Children's Album Grammy Award are sharing their outrage that the contenders in their category are all white. .
