The hurricane, which has devastated parts of the Bahamas, is also a focal point of a larger climate change discussion. Climate change has been a significant platform and policy priority for a number of Democratic presidential hopefuls, including New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, who has just released a $3 trillion dollar plan. On the gun front, while the mass shooting in Texas dominated news going into the Labor Day weekend, the Washington Post is reporting that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is non-commital on bringing new gun legislation up for a vote.
