Kentucky's governor is joining Breonna Taylor's family in calling for the grand jury transcripts. He wants to see what led to the decision not to charge three officers with gunning down the EMT in her apartment. Taylor's mom blames the attorney general for the investigation.       It looks like President Trump will nominate Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court tomorrow. Several outlets are revealing his choice a day early. The conservative judge has been a leading candidate since Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died one week ago today.        President Trump will be holding a rally tonight in Virginia, just hours after the governor tested positive for coronavirus. Officials have been trying to block it citing a health risk. Four-thousand supporters are expected even though gatherings are limited to 250 or less.        Oregon's largest city is now in a state of emergency for tomorrow's Proud Boys rally. The rightwing group moved its event to a park in Portland, claiming there was an overwhelming amount of interest. Counter-protests are expected by liberal groups.        Hawaiian Airlines is offering drive-through coronavirus testing for passengers in Los Angeles and San Francisco. The tests will be available near the airports starting at 90-bucks. Those with a negative result can skip Hawaii's mandatory two-week quarantine.       A special flyover in DC isn't happening today. It was canceled due to the weather. About 70 World War Two airplanes were set to fly over the National Mall to memorialize the end of the war 75 years ago. The event is rescheduled for tomorrow morning.
