Joe Biden's brother fueled speculation of a potential 2020 presidential run after calling into a SiriusXM program this week and talking about the former Vice President's character and "moral strength."

He said that the former veep "absolutely" could run for president again, and doesn't know "why anyone would think otherwise." Speculation surrounding the idea of a 2020 run for Biden was amplified after he launched the American Possibilities PAC on June 1, which his wife said in an interview with CBS "This Morning" was created to keep him "involved in the midterm elections".

What next? While Biden has pushed aside the notion of running in 2020 (CNN reported last month that upon being asked if he planned to run, Biden responded "Could I? Yes. Would I? Probably not."), he said in December that he was "not committing to not running."

For decades, the share of Americans moving to new cities has been falling. The pandemic-induced rise of telework is turning that trend around.

Wisconsin Democrats and the Democratic attorney general of Michigan are urging voters to return absentee ballots to election clerks’ offices or drop boxes, warning that the USPS may not be able to deliver ballots by the Election Day deadline.

Driving the news: The Supreme Court rejected an effort by Wisconsin Democrats and civil rights groups to extend the state's deadline for counting absentee ballots to six days after Election Day, as long as they were postmarked by Nov. 3. In Michigan, absentee ballots must also be received by 8 p.m. on Election Day in order to be counted.
