• Yesterday, Kamala Harris delivered a powerful speech on honoring Justice Ginsburg’s legacy and what President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee means for the future of health care, reproductive freedom, labor rights, voting rights and preserving the morals of this nation. Some toplines below. You can watch the full remarks HERE.

@JoeBiden: .@TheRock is right: Your vote is your voice — and it’s up to all of us to make our voices heard this November. Make your plan to vote today: http://iwillvote.com

@JoeBiden: How much more did you pay in taxes than President Trump? Head to http://JoeBiden.com/TrumpTaxes to find out.

@JoeBiden: Here's the deal: Until we deal with COVID-19, we'll never get our economy fully back on track, get our kids safely back to school, or get our lives back. It's why as president, I won't waste a day getting this virus under control.

9/29 Mike Luckovich: Glass ceiling's back!


9/28 Daily Dose of Joe

Friends -- see below for today's Dose of Joe.

• Yesterday, Vice President Biden delivered remarks on what President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee means for American’s future, rights, livelihood and their access to affordable and quality health care. Biden urged Americans to vote and let their Senators know that they want to be heard before the Senate votes to confirm a new Justice. And he also urged every Senator to take a step back and do what is right for the country. You can watch his full remarks HERE.

• Kamala Harris will travel to Raleigh, North Carolina to deliver remarks on the Supreme Court and what's at stake in this election for the American people, from the Affordable Care Act to other issues affecting their everyday lives. After, Senator Harris will participate in a Sister to Sister meets Shop Talk roundtable to hear directly from Black North Carolinians and highlight the importance of voting to affect change.

• Jill Biden will travel to Madison and Waukesha, Wisconsin. In Madison, Biden will participate in a “Get Out the Vote” event as ballots continue to be mailed to voters across the state and will discuss the numerous ways Wisconsinites can cast their ballot this year, including by mail, at a drop box location, early in-person, or in-person on election day. In Waukesha, she will give remarks on Vice President Biden’s Build Back Better plan to help Wisconsin’s economy recover from the pandemic and discuss his proposals to lower health care costs and protect coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.

• Yesterday, former Pennsylvania Republican Governor Tom Ridge endorsed Joe Biden for President of the United States. In an op-ed in The Philadelphia Inquirer, Governor Ridge wrote, “Joe Biden has the experience and empathy necessary to help us navigate not only the pandemic, but also other issues that have fractured our nation, including social injustice, income inequality, and immigration reform.”

• Superstar Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson announced his support for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in a video yesterday. Johnson cited Biden and Harris’ compassion and heart, as well as their long careers standing with working families.



@JoeBiden: The truth is the economy wasn’t working for folks long before these crises hit. It’s why @KamalaHarris and I won’t just build back to the way things were — we’ll build back better. We won’t be satisfied until the economy starts working for everyone.

@JoeBiden: Thank you @TheRock for your support at this critical moment for our nation. You said it best: This election is about earning the respect of the American people. It’s about decency. It’s about electing leaders who tell the truth. Thanks again, DJ. Next time we’re talking cars.

@JoeBiden: Jill, Kamala, Doug, and our families all extend our warmest wishes to all who observe Yom Kippur. May you have an easy and meaningful fast. And may you be sealed in the Book of Life.

Carville agrees with my theory on how trump will eventually leave the White House

I do not believe that trump really believe that he can truly contest the election results if the current polling results are accurate. If the current polls are accurate, Biden will win by a landslide and there will be no legitimate way to contest the election result. Floriuda will have accurate election results out on election night that will be good except for some miliary ballots. If trump loses Florida, then any election contest will be doomed to fail. However trump's threats could give him leverage to negotiate a plea deal with Governor Cuomo, AG James or DA Cyrus Vance where trump would agree to a peaceful transfer of power in exchange for no prison time for NY state tax charges.

I believe that trump will either pardon himself or will resign and have Pence pardon him for all federal crimes. trump may pardon his family members and some loyal idiots like Barr. The pardon will get rid of federal crimes and so trump needs to worry about state crimes and hsi biggest risk is NY state. I believe that trump will cur a deal with NY for a peaceful transfer of power in exchange for no prison time for turmp and perhaps members of his family

Carville agrees with my theory
This would be in effect a plea deal and not a pardon

9/27 Mike Luckovich: What swinging pendulum?


Federal judge blocks Texas' elimination of straight-ticket voting

Source: Texas Tribune

A U.S. district judge has blocked Texas from eliminating straight-ticket voting as an option for people at the polls this November.

Straight-ticket voting allows voters to register support for all of their party’s candidates on the ballot with a single mark. Democrats had sued the state in March to overturn the Texas Legislature's decision to kill straight-ticket voting.

“Time and time again Republican leadership has tried to make it harder to vote and time and time again federal courts strike it down,” Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa said in a statement after the ruling. "Texas Democrats will have to continue to win at the ballot box to protect the right vote. Until the new Texas majority wipes out these out-of-touch Republicans, Texas Democrats will never stop fighting for Texans in court.”
