Dem Notes

* Those stimulus checks don’t include a President Joe Biden signature. This is a reversal from checks sent out by the previous president. This is more about taking action than getting credit.

* “We’re going to start off making sure Americans are taken care of first, but we’re then going to try to help the rest of the world.”–That was President Joe Biden on the prioritizing of vaccines.

* “By July Fourth, there’s a good chance you, your family and friends can gather in your backyard and have a barbecue and celebrate Independence Day.”–President Joe Biden.

* Competitive when it should be, collaborative when it can be, and adversarial when it must be.”–Secretary of State Antony Blinken on the U.S. relationship with China.

* Although daily White House press briefings are back, still no sign of a Biden press conference.

* One of the two Democratic Georgia senators elected in January, African-American Raphael Warnock, will have to defend his seat next year. Rumor has it that some Republicans are trying to recruit black Georgia football icon Herschel Walker, a former Heisman Trophy winner, to reclaim that key Senate seat. Walker has a decades-long friendship with Donald Trump dating back to when Walker played for the New Jersey Generals of the USFL, owned by Trump, in the 1980s.
