* Smart, activist move by the Biden campaign to get the candidate a higher profile and cede less media coverage to Trump. Biden will be more of a presence on the airwaves, and to that end, his Delaware home now has a makeshift TV studio. The juxtaposition will be worth it. The more Trump opens his mouth and dissembles about the latest COVID update, the more presidential Biden can look.
* Mike Bloomberg’s $18 million contribution to the DNC far exceeds individual limits, but is legal because it comes in the form of a campaign transfer.
* Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, the last woman out in the primary, has now endorsed Joe Biden. Back in 2016, she had endorsed Bernie Sanders. She could also be back in the news cycle if Hawaii activates the National Guard. Gabbard, 38, is a major in the Army National Guard.
* “The core values of this nation, our standing in the world, our very democracy, everything that has made America–America–is at stake.”–Joe Biden.
