Healthcare talk continues

9:39 p.m. ET June 26, 2019: Booker continues the healthcare debate, saying he is for Medicare for all, but seems to suggest he would keep private insurance. At least for a time.

Klobuchar reminds everyone that the three women on stage fought hard for a women’s right to choose.

Health is the topic

Warren says is for Medicare for all. “Healthcare is a basic human right,” she said.

9:25 p.m. ET June 26, 2019: The questions and answers are going fast. Here is what has happened:

Ryan is asked about jobs and says he is not seeing what Trump promised with jobs. Ryan said family members who have had to “unbolt a machine from a factory floor” and ship it out of the country.

Castro is asked about equal pay for men and women. He would work to pass the Equal Rights Amendment, he says.

Gabbard is asked about the economy but about her military experience instead. She did say she would spend tax dollars on helping working class families.

de Blasio says the party has to be strong and bold and progressive. “There’s plenty of money in this country, it’s just in the wrong hands.”  

Delaney says he would double the earned income tax credit. “I’m very different from everybody else here on stage,” Delaney said. 

Booker says the economy isn’t working for all

9:13 p.m. ET June 26, 2019: Booker says this economy “is not working for black and brown communities,” but won’t single out corporations he says are too big.

O’Rourke answers, in part, in Spanish

9:10 p.m. ET June 26, 2019: O’Rourke is asked about taxing corporations. He answers first in English, then in Spanish. But he doesn’t answer the question. He has another shot at it, but still doesn’t really answer if he would tax corporations at 70 percent.

Klobuchar on college

9:08 p.m. ET June 26, 2019: Klobuchar says she doesn’t support subsidizing college for kids from wealthy families. She also says Donald Trump “just sits in the White House and gloats” over college debt.

Warren goes first

9:03 p.m. ET June 26, 2019: Warren gets the first question. “What do you say to those who think significant change can be dangerous.” She says the economy is not doing great for someone who is trying to get a prescription filled. “It’s corruption” Warren says, when the rich are doing better, but the middle class is not.

  • Former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, who flirted with running for president last year before deciding against it in December, may be back in the race as a last-minute entry. >> Read more trending news  In recent days, Patrick, 63, has signaled to other Democrats that he is considering a last-minute entry into the 2020 race, The New York Times reported. If he does run, he will join another Democratic candidate, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, as a late entry into the field. Patrick served as Massachusetts' 71st governor from 2007 to 2015, following Mitt Romney, the current Republican U.S. senator from Utah who failed in his bid to stop Barack Obama's reelection effort in 2012. Deval Laurdine Patrick was born July 31, 1956, in Chicago. According to his website, Patrick moved to Massachusetts in 1970. He was awarded a scholarship to Milton Academy through A Better Chance, a Boston-based organization. Patrick's father, Laurdine Kenneth 'Pat' Patrick Jr., was a jazz musician, composer and arranger who specialized in the jazz alto and baritone saxophones. The elder Patrick was best known for his four-decade association with jazz composer Sun Ra. Patrick's father left his family when Patrick was 4, but he did manage to reconnect with his father before the musician's death in 1991. Patrick graduated cum laude with a bachelor's degree from Harvard College in Boston -- becoming the first member of his family to attend college -- and earned his law degree from Harvard Law School. In 2015 Patrick was awarded an honorary Doctor of Laws degree by Harvard University. Patrick clerked for a federal judge before becoming an attorney in the private sector. Patrick worked for two Boston-based firms -- Day, Berry & Howard and Hill & Barlow. In 1994, he was appointed by President Bill Clinton as assistant attorney general overseeing the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice. Patrick has also served in senior executive positions at Coca-Cola and Texaco. If Patrick decides to run for president, he has until Friday to file for the first primary, which will be held Feb. 3 in New Hampshire, the New York Times reported. Patrick has been a managing director of Bain Capital, a private equity firm since he left office, The Washington Post reported. The firm was co-founded by Romney and was criticized by Democrats when Romney ran against Obama. Patrick married Diane Whiting in 1984, and the couple has two adult daughters, Sarah and Katherine.  Patrick's personal life might also receive renewed focus if he pursues the Democratic nomination. His wife was hospitalized for depression in 2007, the Post reported. In June 2019, his former brother-in-law, Bernard Sigh, was sentenced to six years in prison after he was convicted of charges that included the kidnapping and rape of Patrick's sister, the newspaper reported. Patrick's great-great-great-grandmother, Emily Wintersmith, and her son bought a farm from a white man, Harvey Slaughter, for a very small sum, according to Family Tree magazine. An analysis of Patrick's autosomal DNA revealed Slaughter is Patrick’s great-great-great-grandfather.
  • As the nation's political attention is focused on the beginning of impeachment hearings on Capitol Hill, Hillary Clinton said she is facing 'enormous pressure' to once again run for president in 2020.  >> Read more trending news  But Clinton also told BBC Radio 5 Live it's not something she's considering -- for the moment.  'As I say, 'Never, never, never say never.' I will certainly tell you, I'm under enormous pressure from many, many, many people to think about it,' Clinton said. 'But as of this moment, sitting here in this studio talking to you, that is absolutely not my plans.' Clinton might make another run for the White House in 2020. Clinton, a former first lady, U.S. senator and secretary of state, lost the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump. She won the popular vote but lost the Electoral College vote, which ultimately determines who wins each presidential election. On Wednesday, Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives began holding public impeachment hearings on the president. Democrats said Trump threatened to withhold military aid to Ukraine unless the foreign government investigated Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden.  Republicans say the impeachment hearings are a one-sided political stunt and the Democrats' latest attempt to oust Trump from office. There are still more than a dozen Democrats running to oppose Trump next year, but only a few remaining, serious contenders. They include Biden, and U.S. Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris' campaign is downsizing and pinning all its hopes on next year's Iowa caucus.  At least 10 candidates will be in Atlanta on Nov. 20 for the fifth Democratic debate. The debate will be at Tyler Perry Studios, a 330-acre film and production company founded by the Atlanta-born entertainment mogul.
  • This is quite a dog tale. >> Read more trending news  A 10-week-old dachshund mix from southeast Missouri has what looks like a tail growing out of his forehead, and his puppy dog eyes have taken the internet by storm. The puppy's name -- Narwhal -- pays tribute to the toothed whale that has a large tusk growing from its head that is actually a protruding canine tooth. However, some people on social media are calling him a 'unicorn puppy.' 'He’s got an extra what looks like a perfect tail sitting in the center of his forehead,” Brian Heuring, a veterinarian at Cape Small Animal Clinic in Cape Girardeau, told WFVS. Narwhal was found earlier this month by Mac's Mission, an area rescue group, KDSK reported. Officials from Mac's Mission took the puppy to the veterinarian, who said there was no reason to remove the growth, KVFS reported. Since Narwhal's photo was posted Friday on social media, the pup has received thousands of comments and the original post has been shared numerous times. Narwhal is not bothered by the tail, and he is unable to wag it. “He is pretty much the most unique amazing example of what we do here, and we are so thankful to have the chance to be part of his journey,” officials with the rescue said in a Facebook post.

  • Jimmy Carter’s pastor said the former president is “in good spirits” just one day after undergoing brain surgery. >> Read more trending news The Rev. Tony Lowden, pastor of Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains, Georgia, was in Atlanta on Wednesday visiting Carter at Emory University Hospital. “His spirits are good, and he is up and walking,” Lowden said. Carter was admitted to the hospital on Monday to deal with bleeding near his brain, caused by a series of falls over the past few weeks. Carter was diagnosed with a subdural hematoma and was operated on early Tuesday morning to relieve pressure on his brain. A spokeswoman for Carter said there were no complications from the procedure, but wouldn’t give a timetable on his release. He “will remain in the hospital as long as advisable for observation,” said Deanna Congileo on Tuesday. Lowden drove to Atlanta on Wednesday with dozens of well wishes from the president’s boyhood home of Plains and his home church, Maranatha. “Everyone is praying and concerned about him and making sure that he is OK,” Lowden said. Young visited their church on Sunday to teach Sunday School with Carter. Lowden said he expects to field at least one question from Carter: When can he return to teaching Sunday School? Carter has been teaching Sunday School regularly at Maranatha for 40 years. After he broke his hip in May and fractured his pelvis in October, Carter missed both of his immediately scheduled classes, but quickly made them up the following Sundays. “I am going to tell him that we have everything in order at the church, and he doesn’t have to worry about anything,” Lowden said. “There is no need to rush.”

Williams said the search area was large Monday afternoon, but added that he expected it to be whittled down later in the evening. 'There's a lot of different efforts going on right now in this investigation,' Williams said. 'The information that drove us to Alabama demanded this response, and we absolutely hope to find her alive.' Williams asked that anyone who saw Taylor or her mother between Jacksonville and Alabama in the last two weeks contact authorities.

If you see her or know of her whereabouts, you are asked to call police at 904-630-0500. The Cox Media Group National Content Desk contributed to this report.
