Notable Quotes of the Day
“Harris is trying to run in a lane very similar to what Rubio tried to do in 2016. They’re both new faces, running as next-generation candidates against candidates that in many ways represent the past.

– Alex Conant, communications director for 2016 Rubio presidential campaign
“As the field is narrowing, this next debate will have fewer Democrats on the stage. Kids are back to school. Moms and dads are back from vacations. They’re starting to pay attention more here, as well. I do think there’s still time for Kamala to move forward. I think she’s a very polished politician, a good elected official, someone with a strong background, and she’ll make her case. I wouldn’t just count her out entirely yet.
– Joe Crowley, former Democratic House Caucus chairman
