SUMMARY: Austin is expected to experience temperatures in the 90s, with feels-like temperatures in the 100s. Austin-Travis County EMS Captain Darren Noak anticipates an increase in heat-related illness calls. EMS is prepared, having dealt with such issues in the past. Last May saw more heat-related calls than the previous year, but June is currently seeing slightly fewer. However, with the rising temperatures, a quick increase in cases is expected. Ambulances are equipped with tools like ice packs and IV saline to manage heat-related illnesses, ranging from cramps to heat stroke. Key advice includes wearing loose clothing, staying hydrated, and seeking shade.

This week is forecasted to be a hot one, and paramedics with Austin-Travis County EMS said they're prepared for an uptick in heat-related illness calls.

SUMMARY: SMU Political Science Professor Cal states that losing a presidential candidate this close to an election and major party national conventions is unprecedented in U.S. history. The Democratic Party is rallying around Kamala Harris, boosted by endorsements and the Biden-Harris campaign’s resources. She is considered the steadier choice over alternative chaotic scenarios. Potential vice-presidential candidates include governors with executive experience, like Gretchen Whitmer, Josh Shapiro, and Roy Cooper. A male running mate is advised to balance the ticket. Stability is crucial for Democrats to present a unified front against the Republicans. They aim to finalize their candidate before the convention for a cohesive campaign.

SMU political scientist Cal Jillson talks about the historic nature of President Biden dropping out of the 2024 race, Kamala Harris’ shot at being the Democratic nominee and who she could pick as her running mate.

Poll: More minority voters in Texas to vote for Trump

Published

www.youtube.com – FOX 4 Dallas-Fort Worth – 2024-07-21 17:40:06

SUMMARY: The Republican National Convention showcased increased diversity with black and Hispanic leaders playing prominent roles, aiming to attract more minority voters. Polls indicate growing support for Trump among minority groups in Texas, with black voter support rising to 16% and Latino support to 45%. Analysts suggest this shift could signal trouble for Democrats, who traditionally rely on overwhelming minority support. The trend shows a potential pivot, especially influenced by economic concerns and perceptions of being underserved by the current administration. Discussions emphasized the GOP’s efforts to appeal to diverse demographics and adapt their strategies for future elections.

New polling shows an increasing number of Black and Hispanic voters in Texas are planning to vote for former president Donald Trump in November. FOX 4’s Steven Dial, FOX 26’s Greg Groogan and FOX 7’s Rudy Koski discuss the trend and what it means going forward for both parties. NOTE: This was recorded before President Biden ended his reelection campaign.
