SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Several Republican governors seen as potential 2024 presidential candidates have been cautious to push new abortion restrictions in their state since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.

Gov. Kristi Noem had pledged to “immediately” call a special legislative session to “guarantee that every unborn child has a right to life in South Dakota” if the justices overturned Roe.

In Arkansas, Gov. Asa Hutchinson has said he does not plan to put abortion on the agenda of next month’s special session focused on tax cuts.

And in Florida, Gov. Ron DeSantis has shied away from detailing whether he will push to completely ban abortions despite a pledge to “expand pro-life protections.”

Idaho Republicans poised to reject 2020 election results

The Idaho Republican Party will consider 31 resolutions at its three-day convention, including one already adopted by Texas Republicans that President Joe Biden isn’t the legitimate leader of the country.

Another calls for not recognizing “imaginary identities,” a resolution aimed at transgender people. Multiple resolutions at the convention that begins Thursday involve voting.

One resolution calls for changing Idaho’s system for statewide elections into a national-style electoral college, a process that sometimes leads to candidates winning without receiving the most votes.
