After all that has happened between them, if I were Sessions, I would determine that if sucking up to Trump is what is required to win this election, I will find another way to spend my time. But I guess the swamp just sucks you back in...
    It didn't register when I saw the extract quote in an article but Sessions' first campaign video is entirely focused on placating Trump and assuring his potential Alabama voters that he's all on board the Trump Train...

    ...hands cupped together and mouth wide open right behind the caboose (if you ask me).

    Cenk Uygur has filed to run for Katie Hill's seat in Congress. (She's the one in Cali who resigned.)
    Uygur is the founder of The Young Turks.

    For her part, Hill is backing Christy Smith, a state assemblywoman, stating her seat should be filled by another woman.

    Apparently he will aim to run for a Senate seat in Kansas.
    I've seen similar reports, and so far he's denied it. Talk about bad timing; with Sondland's testimony yesterday bringing him fully into the Ukraine issues, his future Senate seat opponents just got handed a bowlful of lasting fodder.

    Yup, he should have Nikki'd it on out of there in the spring instead of trying to keep all his options open until now.

    (And speaking of, I kinda assume that the Nikki flattery offensive towards Trump was an angle for the Sec/St job when Pompeo slid out. Might need to hit [pause] on that.)

    The 2020 congressional map for North Carolina is set and while it still leans GOP, it appears at least 2 safe Republican seats have been turned over to the Democrats. If the House is close in 2020, and it certainly could be, these 2 seats may make a biiig difference.

    The new map makes it very likely that Democrats will pick up two House seats in North Carolina in 2020. That’s important because it makes Republicans’ quest to regain House control — or at least eat into Democrats’ majority — that much harder. In effect, Republicans need to flip two additional Democratic-held seats just to stand pat in the House.

    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    George Holding (R-NC) announced today that he is leaving Congress; his district was redrawn and is now heavily Democratic (per Jake Sherman tweet).
