Rokita hammered on the issue most directly, arguing that Hill had yet to show meaningful remorse, and that nominating him for a second term would risk losing the seat to Democrats.A defiant Hill had compared himself to President Trump and accused enemies within the party of seizing on the accusations to force him from office.Hill led on each of the first two ballots, but got just 40% of the vote on the second ballot, 167 votes short of the required majority. Under party rules, Decatur County Prosecutor Nate Harter, the last-place finisher on the ballot, was eliminated, with his votes reallocated to those delegates’ next choice. 60 Harter delegates declined to vote for either Hill or Rokita, but Rokita captured nearly three-quarters of the rest to overtake Hill and win the nomination.Zionsville attorney John Westercamp was eliminated on the first ballot after finishing last with 17% of the vote.The coronavirus pandemic prompted both parties to hold virtual conventions instead of the planned gathering at the Indiana Convention Center. With four candidates in the race, Republicans used a ranked-choice mail-in ballot to maintain the requirement that the winning candidate earn a majority.Hill’s first run for attorney general, in 2016, also took three ballots, with Hill leading on all three but not clinching the needed majority until the final vote.Rokita will face former Evansville Mayor Jonathan Weinzapfel in November. Democrats quickly sent out a fundraising appeal attacking Rokita’s opposition to the federal health care law, charging the four-term congressman and former secretary of state “has spent his political career stripping Americans of their health care and jacking up premiums.” Facebook WhatsApp Twitter WhatsApp Pinterest Pinterestlast_img read more

U.S. Banks Resume Lending to Coal Industry

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享The New York Times:Starting three years ago, the largest American banks vowed to cut back on lending to the coal industry.But the banks, it turns out, never actually promised to walk away from coal completely. And now, with coal companies enjoying a small resurgence under the Trump administration, banks are again embracing the industry.Five of the country’s biggest banks are lending tens or hundreds of millions of dollars to coal companies again, in one case eclipsing what they lent in 2014, before the industry entered a nose dive, according to an analysis by Rainforest Action Network, a liberal environmental group.JPMorgan’s coal lending increased to $654 million 2017 from $32 million in 2015, according to the analysis. That was more than the $570 million the bank lent to coal interests in 2014. The vast majority of JPMorgan’s coal loans in 2017 were to Peabody, which emerged from bankruptcy that April.Morgan Stanley’s coal loans, though well below their 2014 levels, more than doubled from 2015 to 2017. And though their loans to coal companies haven’t quite reached earlier levels, Goldman Sachs and Bank of America each added new coal loans last year, the analysis shows. Citigroup made more such loans in 2016 and 2017 than it did in 2015, though well below its 2014 figure.Combined, the five banks issued about $1.5 billion in new coal-related loans last year, according to Rainforest Action Network.More: Think the Big Banks Have Abandoned Coal?
