Tropical Storm Erika lashes Caribbean islands, heads for Florida

Tropical Storm Erika is seen in the Caribbean Ocean in this NOAA GOES-East satellite imageBy David Adams MIAMI (Reuters) – Tropical Storm Erika threatened Haiti and the Dominican Republic with heavy rain and strong winds on Friday as it swirled across the Caribbean and geared up for a run at south Florida, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said. At least 12 people were confirmed dead on the island of Dominica, Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit said on Twitter, adding: "The number may be higher." Due to some likely weakening over mountainous areas, Erika was no longer forecast to make landfall in the United States as a hurricane. Florida Governor Rick Scott declared a state of emergency on Friday, noting the storm could travel "up the spine of Florida" from Sunday into next week.

Biden backers eye gay support, money for presidential bid

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden delivers remarks at the U.S.-Ukraine Business Forum in WashingtonBy Jeff Mason WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Backers of Vice President Joe Biden are reaching out to donors and activists in the gay and lesbian community to line up financial and political support if Biden, who endorsed same-sex marriage before Hillary Clinton, decides to run for president. Draft Biden, the outside Super PAC that is laying the groundwork for a run, believes it can tap into a disproportionately large number of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual (LGBT) members of the Democratic fundraising pool to support Biden instead of the former secretary of state. Gays and lesbians were a critical part of President Barack Obama's coalition in 2008 and 2012.

Republican candidate Rubio rips into China’s Xi

Republican presidential hopeful Marco Rubio branded Beijing's record on human rights a "disgrace"Republican presidential hopeful Marco Rubio on Friday accused Xi Jinping of seeking to undermine US interests, in a notably personal attack ahead of the Chinese president's visit to Washington. Rubio — a Florida lawmaker who sits on the Senate foreign relations committee — singled out the Chinese leader, as he branded Beijing's record on human rights a "disgrace." China has been a popular whipping boy for Republicans on the campaign trail, particularly following the global stock sell-off that many say was triggered by Beijing revaluing its currency. Another Republican White House contender, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, has called on President Barack Obama to cancel a planned state dinner with Xi.

Rubio, a foreign policy hawk, called on President Barack Obama "to speak bluntly to this authoritarian ruler" and downgrade Xi's visit by scrapping a planned state dinner at the White House. Rubio, a U.S. senator from Florida, accused Xi of trying to undermine U.S. influence in Asia by asserting Chinese control over disputed territories in the East and South China Seas.
