By ,

Katie Hobbs is projected to win the state’s gubernatorial election; Donald Trump is expected to announce his bid to run for president in 2024; and the world population is expected to surpass 8 billion. These stories highlight the Daily Rundown for Tuesday, Nov. 15, 2022.

Hobbs wins Arizona gubernatorial race: Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, D, secured victory in the race to be the state’s next governor, with the Associated Press calling the race Monday night. As of 7:00 a.m. EST Tuesday, Hobbs held a lead of about 20,000 votes over her Republican opponent Kari Lake with about 98% of the vote counted since last Tuesday’s midterm elections.

“Democracy is worth the wait,” Hobbs tweeted Monday night. “Thank you, Arizona. I am so honored and so proud to be your next governor.”

Monday’s result marked the last of the notable gubernatorial races, with only Alaska’s to be decided. Hobbs’ win comes after Democrats maintained control of the Senate over the weekend, and before Republicans are expected to take the House, which could happen as soon as later Tuesday.

Trump to announce 2024 bid: Former President Donald Trump is expected to announce his third campaign for president Tuesday night. An announcement was expected at 9 p.m. EST Tuesday from his club in Palm Beach.

“Hopefully, tomorrow will turn out to be one of the most important days in the history of our Country!” former President Trump wrote on Truth Social Monday night.

The expected announcement comes despite Trump being urged to delay the announcement until after next month’s Georgia Senate runoff election. Trump has also received blame from some conservatives and Republicans over a disappointing midterms performance.

World population to reach 8 billion – According to the United Nations, the world’s population is expected pass 8 billion at 10:00 a.m. EST Tuesday. Much of the growth over the last 12 years since the world population hit 7 billion came from developing nations in Africa.

“This unprecedented growth is due to the gradual increase in human lifespan owing to improvements in public health, nutrition, personal hygiene and medicine,” the U.N. said. “It is also the result of high and persistent levels of fertility in some countries.”

The U.N. expects it to take 15 years for the world population to reach 9 billion, calling their projection “a sign that the overall growth rate of the global population is slowing.”
