President Trump is considering conservative pundit Stephen Moore and former Godfather's Pizza CEO Herman Cain for the two vacant seats on the Federal Reserve's board, Bloomberg's Saleha Mohsin and Jennifer Jacobs report.

Buzz: Mohsin and Jacobs note that Moore is a good friend of White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow and "blamed the Fed for slowing the economy while championing Trump's policies in a March 13 [Wall Street] Journal column that he co-authored."

Moore is also the founder of the conservative Club for Growth and previously served on the WSJ's editorial board. He was an adviser on Trump's campaign and "helped write its economic agenda."

Cain ran for president in 2012 but ended his campaign after multiple allegations of sexual assault and harassment, and has also been a vocal advocate for Trump.

  • "Cain last September co-founded a pro-Trump super-political action committee, America Fighting Back PAC, which features a photo of the president on its website and says: 'We must protect Donald Trump and his agenda from impeachment.'"

Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Hillary Clinton both are slated to speak on the Wednesday of the Democratic convention — Aug. 19 — four sources familiar with the planning told Axios.

Why it matters: That's the same night Joe Biden's running mate (to be revealed next week) will address the nation. Clinton and Warren represent two of the most influential wise-women of Democratic politics with the potential to turn out millions of establishment and progressive voters in November.
