Bolivia Vote Tally Shows Morales Win but Monitors Urge a Run-Off

Bolivia Vote Tally Shows Morales Win but Monitors Urge a Run-Off(Bloomberg) — The final tally in Bolivia’s election shows that Evo Morales got enough votes to win a fourth term as president, but opponents are disputing the result while the European Union and the Organization of American States called for a second round.With 99.99% of ballots counted from the Oct. 20 election, Morales had 47.1% versus 36.5% for his main rival, Carlos Mesa. This means that Morales has the lead of more than ten percentage points which he needed to avoid a run-off in December.Clashes broke out between rival supporters in some cities in the worst violence is the worst the nation has seen in more than a decade, according to Kathryn Ledebur, director of the Andean Information Network, a Bolivia-based think tank.Morales himself told reporters Thursday that he had secured a first round win. The president is an ally of Nicolas Maduro, though, unlike his Venezuelan counterpart, he has presided over growth and rising living standards.The Organization of American States identified flaws in the electoral process, and called for a second round in December. The EU said it “fully shares” this view. The OAS has accepted Morales’ invitation to verify the results.The preliminary vote count was halted on Sunday evening, then re-started 24 hours later. This caused widespread suspicion, protests and accusations of fraud. While votes were still being tallied, the vice president of the electoral authority resigned, and opposition supporters set fire to its regional.The governments of the U.S., Brazil, Colombia and Argentina said they are “deeply worried” by anomalies in the ballot counting, according to a joint statement send by the Colombian foreign affairs ministry. Even though there’s no clear evidence of fraud, the “confusing lack of transparency” from the electoral authority means that the opposition won’t accept Morales’s win as legitimate, Ledebur said.The unrest in Bolivia comes after days of clashes in neighboring Chile, following a rise in metro fares, and more than a week of violence in Ecuador earlier in the month after the government increased fuel prices.To contact the reporter on this story: Matthew Bristow in Bogota at mbristow5@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Juan Pablo Spinetto at jspinetto@bloomberg.net, Walter Brandimarte, Bruce DouglasFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

Tally of children split at border tops 5,400 in new count

Tally of children split at border tops 5,400 in new countU.S. immigration authorities separated more than 1,500 children from their parents at the Mexico border early in the Trump administration, the American Civil Liberties Union said Thursday, bringing the total number of children separated since July 2017 to more than 5,400. The ACLU said the administration told its attorneys that 1,556 children were separated from July 1, 2017, to June 26, 2018, when a federal judge in San Diego ordered that children in government custody be reunited with their parents. Children from that period can be difficult to find because the government had inadequate tracking systems.

Joe Biden Tops Bernie Sanders’ First-Day Fundraising Tally

Joe Biden Tops Bernie Sanders’ First-Day Fundraising TallyREUTERSJoe Biden’s presidential campaign announced Friday that it had raised a total of $ 6.3 million in the first 24 hours of his candidacy—the largest single-day tally for any 2020 candidate thus far. “That’s more than any other presidential campaign so far,” boasted a note to supporters. The campaign said that 97 percent of online donations were under $ 200 and that the average online donation was $ 41. Additionally, they said that a total of 96,926 people contributed and some 61 percent of donations were new and did not come from pre-existing email lists. A Biden aide told The Daily Beast that the number was measured from 6 a.m. Thursday to 6 a.m. Friday, that the total includes a high-dollar fundraiser Biden attended in Philadelphia on Thursday, and that none of the funds are general-election funds. The fundraiser was held at the home of David L. Cohen, senior executive vice president at Comcast, where guests were asked to contribute up to the maximum of $ 2,800 for the primary campaign. Health-insurance executive Daniel J. Hilferty, CEO of Independence Blue Cross, was another host. Organizers told The Wall Street Journal that the fundraiser brought in at least $ 700,000 but The Daily Beast could not independently confirm that figure. Prior to the event, former Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell told The Daily Beast that he was getting calls from people looking for invitations. Biden’s overall figure is greater than the single-day totals from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX), who previously held the top two highest 24-hour fundraising totals. However, Biden’s tally came from significantly fewer donors than Sanders’ and included the high-dollar event. Sanders raised more than $ 5.9 million from 223,047 individual contributors and has not held any fundraisers, nor plans to. O’Rourke has not had any fundraisers, but he will hold a high-dollar event in New York City. He raised $ 6.1 million in his first day from more than 128,000 contributors, which appeared to lead the field, until the campaign's FEC filing revealed that nearly $ 300,000 of that money was devoted to general election funds. Biden’s haul helps ease concerns from within the former vice president’s camp and supporters that he would not be able to out-raise several popular 2020 opponents. While he has access to the prior 2012 Obama-Biden email list, it is likely to have diminished in size over the years and, unlike some of his opponents who had transferred funds from Senate runs, Biden began his campaign with $ 0.

Tally of missing in California's deadliest blaze surpasses 600

Tally of missing in California's deadliest blaze surpasses 600A search for victims of a catastrophic blaze that reduced a northern California town to ashes intensified on Thursday, as authorities expanded to 630 the number of those reported missing in the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in state history. At least 63 people have been confirmed dead in the Camp Fire, which erupted a week ago in the drought-parched Sierra foothills 175 miles (280 km) north of San Francisco and now ranks as one of the most lethal single U.S. wildfires since the turn of the last century. Authorities attributed the high death toll in part to the staggering speed with which the wind-driven flames, fueled by desiccated scrub and trees, raced with little warning through Paradise, a town of 27,000.
