First off, check back tomorrow morning for a preview and open thread for the UT-3 GOP convention. France has its legislative runoffs on Sunday. Only 4 out of 577 seats were decided in the first round last week, but President Emmanuel Macron’s corporate-liberal centrist En Marche (Let’s Go) party is projected to win around 3/4 of the seats in the runoffs.
Next, we are making the following ratings change ahead of next week’s elections: GA-6 goes to Lean D from Lean R. SC-5 remains at Safe R.
And now this week’s questions:
1. Do additional precautions need to be taken with regards to the security of members of Congress?
2. In general, do you see hyperbolic and emotional rhetoric in politics as a problem?
And because it’s the weekend, we’re thankful for the heroic and professional police officers who prevented a greater tragedy this week, unlike say, the one you see HERE.
