Earlier this week, Mary blogged about Representative Christopher Collins (R-NY) being indicted on allegations of insider trading.  Today, Collins has announced that he is suspending his reelection campaign.  It’s not yet clear who will replace him, but it seems unlikely that the GOP will lose this safe seat.

Sharice Davids just won the Democratic primary in the KS-03 District. She defeated the Bernie-Ocasio-Cortez backed progressive candidate. She will face incumbent Republican Kevin Yoder in November.

I normally wouldn’t take interest in the race, except that Sharice is a former student of mine.

The energy among Democrats is fueled by anti-Trump Resistance and the embrace of Socialism.

The anti-Trump energy will get Democrats only so far — there already is evidence it will not be enough. Democrats feel the need to be FOR something, not just AGAINST Trump.
