In other news, the Zika virus has now spread to at least 33 military service members including one pregnant woman.

Meanwhile, one of Trump's campaign chairman in Florida says Zika isn't a serious issue. The CDC just issued a travel warning for parts of Miami.

Finally, the state of Texas has backed down on voter ID. Voters without an ID will be able to sign an affidavit just as they can in most other states.
