(CNN) Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Tuesday announced that a special election to replace Democratic Rep. Alcee Hastings, who died last month, will take place next January. The primary for Florida's 20th Congressional District will be on November 2 with the general election on January 11, DeSantis said, announcing an upcoming executive order that will set the special election. "I know there'll be a lot of folks that want to run for it, so hopefully that gives them enough time to be able to get on the ballot and do whatever they need to do to be competitive," the Republican governor told reporters Tuesday. The timing means the solidly blue district will likely go nine months without representation, delaying Democrats from adding another member to their caucus at a time when they have a narrow majority in the HouseHastings had been the longest-serving member of Florida's congressional delegation.

Members of Myanmar's Civil Disobedience Movement (CDM) undertake military training in the country's ethnic border regions, as clashes with the ruling junta escalate. The KNDO is not the only armed ethnic group offering CDM members training. Nerdah Bo Mya acknowledges it is a very one-sided battle on the streets of Myanmar. Armed clashes between the Myanmar military and another Karen armed group -- the Karen National Liberation Army -- have displaced about 40,000 people, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA). But Nerdah Bo Mya says they will return to the cities better equipped mentally, at least.

“This is about whether the Republican Party is going to perpetuate lies about the 2020 election and attempt to whitewash what happened on Jan. 6,” said Jeremy Adler, the spokesman. “Every person of conscience draws a line beyond which they will not go: Liz Cheney refuses to lie,” Mr. Romney wrote on Twitter. “As one of my Republican Senate colleagues said to me following my impeachment vote: ‘I wouldn’t want to be a member of a group that punished someone for following their conscience.’”Many House Republicans insist they have no problem with Ms. Cheney’s vote to impeach Mr. Trump, which she described as a vote of conscience. It has also infuriated Mr. Trump. The final straw for many came last week in Orlando, where Republicans gathered for their annual policy retreat in hopes of putting on a show of unity.
