As we celebrate Independence Day, I’m grateful to work with an expanding coalition of leaders and organizations working tirelessly for more choice and more voice for all. We built this system, and we can fix it, and achieve a more perfect union. Fight on! 🇺🇸

Fact: Open primaries means we could vote for any candidate running in the primary, not just one party’s candidates. 

We’re a nonpartisan coalition fighting to bring more choice & more voice to Arkansans. Join us:

It's unclear how Herman Cain contracted COVID, but per  @NBC News  @Monica Alba, Cain attended the Trump rally in Tulsa on June 20 as an official campaign surrogate & posted a photo of himself inside the BOK Center without wearing a mask.

We are sorry to announce that Herman Cain has tested positive for COVID-19, and is currently receiving treatment in an Atlanta-area hospital. 

Please keep him, and all who are battling this virus, in your prayers.

Our full statement appears below. Updates to follow.

Black voters, on average, wait 45 percent longer to vote than white voters; Latino voters wait 46 percent longer. https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2020/06/voter-suppression-novembers-looming-election-cr...

I worked with many of these folks, and they’re deeply kind, thoughtful, talented, and dedicated patriots. Most spent decades working for Republicans, and they don’t take lightly the decision to support Biden.

Indictment: "[Ghislaine] Maxwell assisted, facilitated and contributed to Jeffrey Epstein's abuse of minor girls by, among other things, helping Epstein to recruit, groom, and ultimately abuse victims...

"The victims were as young as 14."

When I joined the GOP it used to be pro-trade, pro-immigration, and believed in the critical role of US global leadership. It’s unrecognizable on those issues today.

Tell a person’s priorities by where they spend their money. Tell a country’s priorities by what they insist on opening first. It speaks volumes that the looming school and childcare crisis don’t command more attention.

From Karen Hughes: Mask-wearing isn’t a political test. It’s a moral test, and my fellow Republicans are failing. https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/07/01/mask-wearing-isnt-political-test-its-moral-test-m...

Kelvin Pittman in Jacksonville, FL felt the president didn’t take the killing of George Floyd seriously: “It was kind of the last straw. It was like, this dude is just in it for himself. I thought he was supposed to be for the people.” https://nyti.ms/38iiV1O

“ #RankedChoiceVoting is such a no-brainer.” That’s it. That’s the tweet. https://bit.ly/3dIv4yU

This is how we fix our broken political system: -End gerrymandering -Ranked Choice Voting -Automatic voter registration + vote by mail -Campaign finance & ethics reform  #unrigthesystem

Patriots unite in North Carolina to restore decency and competence to the White House. Proud to ally with leaders like  @Judge Bob Orr from  @Republicans for a New President to host a principled convention and grow the movement for a new, better president: https://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/politics-government/article243901932.html

For those of you, like me, ever in search of bright spots:

BREAKING: Bipartisan Senate leadership rarely gets together on anything. But they have gotten together today to object to Trump’s attempt to take over Voice of America & turn it into a propaganda mill. 

Here’s their letter, & the lawsuit to stop this outrage is also proceeding.

New Gallup poll—for the first time since Gallup started asking, percentage who support increased immigration (34%) exceeds the percentage who want decreased immigration (28%, a new low):

I knew it would be this bad. The narcissism, fact denial, dictator admiration, bigotry, and false bravado could only lead to disaster for the country. Yet, I hoped everyone who disagreed would be right, we’d avoid crises, and I would be proven wrong.

I served in uniform for 25 years under Democrat & Republican presidents and none of them ever had a SECDEF make a statement that they took our enemies trying to kill us seriously ... we never doubted whose side they were on.

I want to assure all of our service members that we take seriously any and all potential threats against U.S. military personnel.

It’s fascinating to see the mask debate play out in real time where the effectively polarized who rejected masks at first are now coming around as their states see spikes. I see this in AZ, TX, and elsewhere.

This from  @Scott Gottlieb, MD is such an important point. As one education expert told me, “the priority should have always been how to open schools, not bars.”

"I would be prioritizing opening the schools. I would do what it takes from a policy standpoint to ... open the schools," says @ScottGottliebMD. "If you can't get children back into schools you really can't restart the economy in a robust fashion."

This is all so unbelievable! My son was there! I’m in utter disbelief. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/06/30/us/politics/russian-bounties-afghanistan-intelligence.html

Telling people to wear masks might be the single thing Trump could do to most improve his re-election prospects.

 #BREAKING Officials were aware in early 2019 of intelligence indicating Russia was offering bounties to the Taliban for the deaths of Americans, a full year earlier than has been reported—John Bolton told colleagues he briefed Trump on the intel assessment https://apnews.com/425e43fa0ffdd6e126c5171653ec47d1
