5. 48-ish days to VP selection:
Former Vice President Joe Biden said he wanted to choose his jogging friend by August 1 – it’s not too long!
Biden himself withdrew some of his previous seat quarter support from who was considered and who was not.
While still offering praise for the most-mentioned candidates – and its campaign New Mexico Gov.
So things are getting more and more serious.
4. How do Democrats dance around ‘Defeat Police’?
What the Democrats would like to talk about this week at the Congress is the legislative package they aimed to reform the police last week – from banning strangers to creating a national police duty abuse database.
He said: “Nobody will allocate funds to the police. We can reconstruct the police forces. Reconstruct, imagine the policing. That’s what we will do. The point is that the police have a role to play.”
Politically speaking, it’s the right place. Many people support reform in reform practices. Much less back defunding completely.
The question before the Congressional Democrats is whether Clyburn’s position he expressed on Sunday is enough for the more activist wing of his parties.
3. Trump and ramp:
Twitter bananas are gone, Trump looked old and weak. This is of course what Twitter does.
But then Trump decided to drastically raise the profile of that moment and make it a much bigger story.
It is difficult to overdo Trump’s miscalculation. His video of walking down the ramp without his tweet, perhaps a little Sunday story. With Tweet, it’s a BIG story on Sunday, there is the potential to infiltrate a week when the President wants to focus on the re-launch of the election campaign.
This is a terrible political instinct.
2. The Trump campaign is restarting:
The past few weeks have been disastrous for Trump and his party. (See below). The president hopes that it will be the week when everything changes, pointing to his rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma on Saturday.
Although this is already bot (The rally was originally scheduled for Friday, June 19, a day celebrating the end of slavery) Trump and his closest allies see his return to the campaign trail as perhaps something that could heal what bothers the President’s political wealth.
However, the news of the week seems to focus, at least in part, on the wisdom of Trump, who held a major rally, especially with the coronavirus swelling in the west and southwest.
However, there is no plan to enforce social distance in rally or wearing a mask.
Yes, Trump will likely get what he wants – a large crowd celebrating the country’s “transition to size.” But at all costs?
1. Press the panic button:
On Saturday night, Des Moines Register issued a poll about the Iowa Senate race. And that was a shock.
And for the Senate Republicans hoping to hold their narrow majority this fall, this t-r-o-u-b-l-e.
Why is that? Because there are so many seats that independent handicaps see at least as vulnerable as Iowa.
Do the math: These are nine seats. In contrast, Cook evaluates only two Democratic chairs – Alabama and Michigan – as competitive. You can see why Republicans are so bad on Saturday night (and Sunday) when you think that Democrats only need three seats to win the majority if Biden wins the presidential race (and if not four).
