This led me down the rabbit hole and learned that Nick Saban was a student at Kent State during the Kent State shootings of 1970 and was on-campus when it happened. Here's a clip of him talking about it:

Nick Saban was among those West Virginia sports figures urging Manchin to support the Freedom to Vote Act:

My take on the gubernatorial race is that none of the challengers are notable enough to take out Abbott. I could be entirely out of touch with what Texas Republicans think, but I don't think they are that mad at Abbott that they would want to replace him with Huffines or West.

It looks like Max Rose is strongly hinting at a run here. Him and Yang jumping in would make the race a little more interesting from an outsider's perspective, although I personally wouldn't know who I would support if I were a New Yorker.

About to get hyper-partisan: I think it's simply impossible to have a constructive and informative debate with Donald Trump present. There were times where Biden definitely got frustrated and fired back at Trump, and he did interrupt Trump, a couple of times, but most of the chaos was clearly coming from Trump.

As much as I dislike him, if you put Pence in his Trump place, the voters would have a much more likely chance of deciphering both candidates' policies in a Biden-Pence debate because Pence is a much more "normal" politician. Trump's bombastic personality doesn't allow for a serious and constructive debate. Wallace did a poor job and certainly couldn't get control over the debate, but honestly there's not much you can do without a mute button.

Max Rose is going to get re-elected on the strength of pure hatred of James Dolan and Bill de Blasio alone.

Well if the Castro stories weren't enough, hopefully this counts her out:

Also, this is from The Daily Caller. If there was any merit to this, I'm surprised they didn't hang on to this story. Just gives Biden a less likely chance of picking her.

Rest in peace to a hero in and icon. His life is in important reminder that you are never too young to get involved in social justices causes and fight for what you believe in, as well as the fact that fighting injustice is a lifelong struggle that is never "finished."

A little bit surprised to see Reyes in the lead so far in this race, I guess the Cruz endorsement carries more weight than Trump's? /s

But if he does pull it off, I'm suspecting Gina Ortiz Jones' chances would go up. I feel like she would be favored against either candidates, but she would have an easier time beating Reyes than Gonzales.

If anything, Booker should be happy with the result of this primary. He came up short, but he built up a lot of good will in the state and nationally and doesn't have to risk a big loss to McConnell to ruin his momentum. I don't see him winning a statewide race anytime in the near future, but he could run for Yarmuth's district whenever he steps down.

Safe R. Scholten might still do well in this district compared to other Democrats, but King ran well behind the statewide candidates in IA-04 in 2018.

A little bit of a sensationalist headline here. It's a swing district, literally meaning it could go either way. I could see Garcia winning the special only to lose in the general. I will say that even though Democrats haven't had an awesome winning record in these special elections since 2016, this particular race *should* have been one of the easier swing races Democrats should have won, so a loss here would obviously be a disappointment.

I'm just as curious as you are to see the results from this race. I don't know too much about this district, but if I had to make a prediction, I would say Cuellar probably holds on, but it might be close. TX-28 is a lot different than AOC and Pressley's districts, and although it is a safe blue district, I'm not sure if it's the most *progressive* district (Hillary did pretty well in a lot of these counties). But I've been wrong before.

One interesting fact from this: Romney became the first Senator in U.S. history to vote to remove a president from his own party.

NYT already getting a lot of flack online for their double endorsement of Warren/Klobuchar. They had hyped up this endorsement for a little while now and had a big 1-hour TV special about the candidate interviews, and endorsing multiple candidates seemed like a disappointment.

Who knows how much this actually changes anything though. I feel like if they only endorsed Klobuchar, she could've actually gotten a noticeable boost in polling and fundraising since she's considered a lower-tier candidate. For Warren, an endorsement *might* have helped voters who are leaning between her and Buttigieg to take her side. And while Klobuchar will definitely enjoy some sort of a good news cycle from this, I feel like endorsing 2 candidates just kinda dampens any boost the endorsee might've received.

The endorsements for this primary are very interesting: Joe Kennedy has the backing of co-chairs of the Progressive Caucus, New Dems, and Blue Dogs, while Markey has the backing of both AOC and Joe Manchin.

He stayed in the race way after he was mathematically eliminated. Endorsing two weeks before the primary is way too late. His support for her in the race was tepid at best. If he really thought it was important that she defeat Trump, he could've done a lot more.
