President Trump said that he is considering a significant increase to the number of military personnel along the border, two days after he unveiled plans to send 5,200 troops there, the Washington Post reports.
Said Trump: Well go up to anywhere between 10 and 15,000 military personnel on top of Border Patrol, ICE and everybody else at the border. Nobodys coming in. Were not allowing people to come in.
From a fundraising email:
A few moments from now, Randall, I am going to ask you to rush a contribution to J.D. Scholten the Democratic candidate running against Steve King in Iowa's 4th Congressional District. Let me explain:
J.D. Scholten is defined by his Iowa values. Hes a former baseball player turned paralegal and community organizer who is fighting to protect workers rights, create opportunity for all, and defend our health care.
Steve King is a lifelong politician who has used his career in public service to openly appeal to white supremacists, stoke racism, and foster fear of immigrant communities. He is one of our nations loudest voices who sows division and hate among Americans just like Donald Trump.
A new poll shows J.D. Scholtens longshot bid to beat Steve King within one percentage point of winning this race, which is why I am personally asking you to step up and help his campaign today:
Will you rush a contribution of $10 or more to Kings challenger J.D. Scholten and to other Iowa Democrats running to help our party take the House back on November 6th?
Lansing A ballot initiative to legalize recreational marijuana and retail sales in Michigan remains popular with voters but faces a late push from opponents running television attack ads in an effort to defeat the measure.
A majority of Michigan voters support Proposal 1, according to an Oct. 25-27 poll of 600 likely voters conducted for The Detroit News and WDIV. Fifty-seven percent of respondents said they would vote for the legalization initiative compared with 40 percent who were opposed.
The 17-percentage-point margin bodes well for the Coalition to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol, and the findings indicate 2.8 percent of voters remain undecided on the measure. The survey had a margin of error of plus-minus 4 percentage points.
Voters know where they stand on the issue of legalization, said Glengariff Group pollster Richard Czuba. But the one red flag Id wave here is that if younger voters dont materialize at the polls, this is going to be a closer proposal than it's polling at right now.
Two ballot proposals to establish an independent redistricting commission and create new voting options such as no-reason absentee voting have maintained double-digit leads, according to new polling.
The redistricting plan, Proposal 2, received the support of 58.5 percent of 600 likely voters to 26.5 percent opposed, The Detroit News-WDIV survey found. TV poll of 600 likely voters. About 15 percent remain undecided in the poll with a margin of error of plus-minus 4 percentage points.
The proposals lead has grown since the Glengariff Group began measuring support in September. In early October, backing stood at 55 percent.
Proposal 2 would amend 11 separate sections of the Michigan Constitution to create a 13-member redistricting commission that includes four self-identified Democrats, four Republicans and five others who are non-affiliated or independent.
Support for Proposal 3, a plan that would expand voter options to include no-reason absentee voting, has slid from 72 percent support in early October to 69 percent support in the most recent poll. Roughly 22 percent of those surveyed oppose the proposal and about 10 percent remain undecided.

A +10D day, or 2,400 votes. So although Mon and Tues were relatively good for the GOP, Dems still won both by 2,400. And the Clark county firewall is officially over 30k, and IMO, likely to be at least 40k.

House Majority PAC has placed an initial buy in Fargo in the race for ND CD-AL. This is the first outside money we have seen in a race that is considered a safe Republican seat.
