Congress just got a little bluer when Democrat Conor Lamb won a Pennsylvania special election in a district Donald Trump carried by 19 points. To put that into perspective and what it means for November, Trump only won NC-02 by nine points and our district has fewer rural voters than the one in Pennsylvania.
In the White House
After pressure from Donald Trump, Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe just two days before he was set to retire. Now, Trump is urging the Attorney General’s office to shut down the Mueller investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
