The @FEC has flagged @realDonaldTrump's 2020 re-election campaign for accepting 100 pages worth of "excessive" contributions.

While big prez campaigns — Dem & GOP — often make accounting errors, this is a lot.

Lewinsky, on Bill Clinton:

“If you want to know what power looks like, watch a man safely, even smugly, do interviews for decades, without ever worrying whether he will be asked the questions he doesn’t want to answer.”

In Jan 2017, Dems were down 52-48 in the Senate and looking at an absolutely murderous map

If you’d told them they’d come out 2018 down 53-47*, most would’ve been super relieved

Goes to show how much expectations shifted — & how much Alabama undermined Rs

In #GA06, McBath benefited from a turnout surge in heavily African-American precincts relative to the 2017 special election. Turnout increased about 10% in the whitest precincts but increased about 70% (!) in the most African-American precincts.

Like, look at this. The articles themselves usually note that there's no evidence for Trump's evidenceless claims - NBC's article, for example, puts the corrective in its sub-headline - but he continues to get the headlines and quote-tweets he wants.

Missing in the G.O.P.: Black and Hispanic Nominees for Governor
Just crunched: the percentage of white men as a share of House Democrats is set to decline from 41% to 38% as a result of the 2018 election.

Meanwhile, the percentage of white men as a share of House Republicans is on track to rise from 86% to *90%.*

Kyrsten Sinema (AZ) was a uniquely awful candidate: gave enough of an *appearance* of left-wing radicalism to alienate "moderates," but offered no policy enticements to actual left-wingers, therefore triangulating her way to defeat in a state that was eminently winnable for Dems

Since I realize not everyone has visited D.C. or knows the area's layout: Arlington Cemetery is about 2 miles from the White House. A person could walk there in under an hour. A person with a motorcade could get there in under 10 minutes. And rain isn't forecast until the evening

Richard Ojeda’s case for his candidacy is straightforward: The Democratic Party has gotten away from its roots, and he has a unique ability to win over a white, black, and brown working-class coalition by arguing that Trump is a populist fraud.

This is from a political reporter. It is very on point. And it helps underline something journalists need to understand. Spreading misinformation because you think it's your job to report "allegations of..." is bad journalism according to, not your critics, but your colleagues.

Went to a Bat Mitzvah today, which was lovely.

But as it was starting, the rabbi took time — in a very measured voice — to point out all the exits, including the emergency exits, so people would know how to leave the synagogue if necessary.

That’s new.
