Anxiety among Democrats about President Biden's campaign is growing by the day. "The Washington Post" reports former President Obama told his allies Biden needs to "seriously consider the viability of his candidacy." Meanwhile, "Axios" reports Biden may be persuaded by Democratic party leaders and close friends to drop out of the race by this weekend.        The Republican National Convention reaches its climax tonight with a speech by Presidential Nominee Donald Trump. The week has been unlike any other in Convention history as it started right after the assassination attempt of Trump. It included the naming of JD Vance of Ohio as his running mate and a massive security presence throughout the Milwaukee area.        Police have discovered a social media post by the shooter behind former President Trump's assassination attempt in Pennsylvania that hinted at the attack. Thomas Crooks posted on the gaming social media platform Steam "July 13th will be my premiere, watch as it unfolds." That's according to Fox News.       More Americans than expected are seeking unemployment benefits. The Labor Department says it received 243-thousand initial requests for the week ending July 13th. That's up from the previous week's revised total of 223-thousand and more than the 229-thousand most analysts were expecting today.       President Biden is announcing another round of student debt forgiveness. This time around, it's one-point-two-billion-dollars in relief for public sector workers like teachers, nurses and firefighters. Borrowers can qualify through the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program. Meantime, Republicans are leading legal challenges to the administration's earlier debt forgiveness efforts.       The lawyer for former Broncos player Terrell Davis says United Airlines' apology to the NFL Hall of Famer is not enough. Davis was taken off a flight from Denver to California in handcuffs last week after an incident with a flight attendant. United apologized to the athlete and said it removed the flight attendant from duty while they "closely review this matter." His attorney says legal action is being considered.
