    Judge did it for him.
     

    In a victory for the Florida Democratic Party, a federal judge agreed Wednesday to extend voting registration in the state until October 18 because of the impact of Hurricane Matthew.
     

    Judge Mark E. Walker, of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida, granted a preliminary injunction to the Florida Democratic Party and other groups who had argued that voter registration needed to be moved because of the effects of the storm, which raked along the Eastern Coastline for several days. The original deadline was Tuesday, but the judge had temporarily moved it to Wednesday so that he could hold a hearing on the matter.

    Marc Elias an attorney for the Florida Democratic Party and the Clinton campaign — had argued in court papers that Florida voters faced a “daunting, and indeed, life threatening obstacle” to register to vote because of Hurricane Matthew. He said “a massive and dangerous weather event that has threatened Florida with substantial damage and loss of life.”

    [b]McConnell Yanks Rick Scott from Committee Via Text[/b][/h1]  
     
    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) removed Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL), one of his top intraparty rivals, from the Commerce Committee informing him via text message, the [link=https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/senate/mitch-mcconnell-told-rick-scott-off-commerce-committee-text]Washington Examiner[/link] reports.
    Said Scott: This is what happens when you challenge leadership. It was McConnells decision to remove someone who has actually run businesses and ran the third largest state from a committee Ive served on for four years. Youll have to ask him why.
