The Cook Political Report moves the South Carolina Senate race from Lean Republican to Toss Up.
Quote:
While South Carolina is certainly redder than its border states Georgia and North Carolina — two other Sun Belt states that have seen more rapid demographic and urban/suburban shifts than South Carolina — that doesn’t mean there aren’t underlying shifts here as well.
...
Ultimately, this race has earned a more competitive rating — underscoring just how fast the GOP majority is slipping away if they have to defend turf like this, and also how much Trump’s numbers have fallen across the board. We are moving South Carolina from Lean Republican to Toss Up.

Minnesota's 2nd District is considered a tight race between Craig and Republican challenger Tyler Kistner.
A federal judge has put the #mn02 election back on track for November, granting an injunction for Angie Craig against enforcing a Minnesota state law that would have pushed race to February.

Apparently Graham also illegally begged for campaign money beside shamelessly declaring how much anti-abortion he is while at the hearing. They know Barr won't investigate these violations.

Privatize the profits and socialize the losses. It's the American way. That's how Mnuchin got rich. Worse, he did it on the backs of elderly people who had been conned into reverse mortgages. Mnuchin paid zero, took on the debt then taxpayers bailed him out.

Respect for the North Caroline GOP chair who finally has had enough: family values are after all everything for the GOP.

"It’s time for Trump to either start providing North Carolinians with straight answers on his extramarital affairs or suspend his campaign.”

ETA: sorry, misspelled that. Not Trump, Cunningham. My bad

Senator John Cornyn
@JohnCornyn
More California money flooding in for MJ Hegar. That is on top of the $15 million NY Senator Schumer has bankrolled. They will soon learn that a Texas Senate seat is not for sale. #NotOnMyWatch

They bought my vote. I don't know if it will be enough, but it is nice to see Cornyn being lambasted for his association with McConnell and Trump in TV ads.
