President Trump is reportedly going in the direction of selecting Amy Coney Barrett as his Supreme Court nomination. Multiple outlets report that Trump will make that announcement tomorrow. She has been a leading contender since the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.        President Trump will be throwing a rally tonight in Virginia even after Governor Ralph Northam tested positive with coronavirus. Officials have been trying to stop it citing health risks. It'll be Trump's third campaign stop today.       Senator Kamala Harris says the recent decision in the Breonna Taylor case was a "gut punch." Harris says she has been speaking with Taylor's mother since she was killed. She added she's come to know Taylor as a caregiver.       The United States has surpassed seven-million confirmed coronavirus cases. Johns Hopkins University reports there are over 203-thousand deaths in the U.S. Thirty-two-point-three-million people have been infected around the globe.       Google is taking a different approach with election advertisements this year. A spokesperson for the company said Friday that they will block any promotions related to the November election as soon as the polls close. The temporary motion could last around a week.       California Governor Gavin Newsom is supporting a bill requiring private health insurers to cover mental health and drug addiction treatments. The new law will define what is "medically necessary". The new law will be put in place next year.
