Amy Klobuchar seeks a fourth term in the Senate, one fellow Democratic member of the Minnesota delegation isn't having any of it.

All three ex-senators used to represent the 4th district, which covers the eastern portion of the state, in the House. "Each of them knows the fourth district and understands the kind of principled leadership our community needs in Congress," said Sonnenberg.

IVF treatments have been halted in Alabama after a ruling declared frozen embryos to be human life. Most House Republicans back a bill making a similar argument — with no IVF exception. Most House Republicans have cosponsored a bill declaring that life begins from the moment of conception, a position under increased scrutiny after the Alabama Supreme Court ruled that frozen embryos are "unborn children." This Congress, 125 House Republicans — including Speaker Mike Johnson — have cosponsored the "Life at Conception Act," which states that the term "human being" includes "all stages of life, including the moment of fertilization, cloning, or other moment at which an individual member of the human species comes into being." AdvertisementSome House Republicans in swing seats who have previously cosponsored the Life at Conception Act have done the same, including current cosponsor Reps. Michelle Steel of California and past cosponsor David Schweikert of Arizona.

Read previewHomeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is only the second Cabinet secretary to be impeached in American history. The three Republicans who voted to oppose Mayorkas' impeachment have each warned about establishing a new precedent for the action some lawmakers place only below authorizing a war. Still, the vote to impeach Trump for inciting the Capitol riot was the most bipartisan presidential impeachment vote in history. As The New York Times pointed out during Trump's first impeachment, one out of every four presidents have had articles of impeachment written up against them. Gallagher announced his decision just days after bucking his party on the first vote to impeach Mayorkas.

Regardless, the Democratic Party could have avoided this altogether. But the same poll suggested that if the choice was between Trump and another Democratic candidate, 40% would probably vote for Trump and 48% would vote for the Democratic candidate. David Axelrod, a former strategist for Barack Obama, said at the time the polls would "send tremors of doubt" through the Democratic Party. If he continues to run, he will be the nominee of the Democratic Party," he wrote on X. The Democratic Party did not seriously consider putting up a candidate other than Biden in 2024, and it's left them with next to no alternative options.

Larry Hogan is running for Senate despite trashing the idea last year. "Not a lot gets done in the Senate," Hogan said in May 2023, reaffirming his decision not to run.

On Wednesday, 17 Republican senators joined with Democrats to begin debate on a version of the foreign aid bill that no longer includes any of the border security provisions. AdvertisementThe $95.34 billion package contains $60 billion in new aid to Ukraine, $14 billion for Israel, and $9.15 billion for humanitarian assistance, including for Gaza. In May 2022 — the last time the Senate voted on a bill primarily dealing with Ukraine aid — 39 GOP senators supported it. Several Democratic senators are hoping to impose new conditions on Israel aid amid the devastating war in Gaza, and Republicans may offer amendments of their own. Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia has threatened to call a vote on ousting Johnson from the speakership if he allows another vote on Ukraine aid.

Perhaps the biggest takeaway from Special Counsel Robert Hur's report is that President Joe Biden is struggling with memory issues. Hur's report, while not recommending any criminal charges over Biden's handling of classified documents, included seemingly grave warnings about the president's mental acuity. During a portion dealing with classified documents pertaining to Afghanistan, the report noted that the 81-year-old president "would likely present himself to a jury, as he did during our interview of him, as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory."

Democrats believe it will be essentially impossible to get that aid through both chambers of Congress without attaching it to Israel aid. AdvertisementYet despite AIPAC's endorsement of a $11.7 billion Israel aid package on Tuesday, all but 46 House Democrats voted against it. Democratic Rep. Don Beyer, a former diplomat, said he sees little urgency in approving more Israel aid. Another factor in Democrats' rejection of the Israel aid bill was its exclusion of humanitarian aid for Palestinians, which is included in the Senate's foreign aid bill. And there are some progressive Democrats who are likely to spurn further Israel aid altogether.

The House failed to pass a $17.6 billion bill to provide aid to Israel on Tuesday. 14 House Republicans joined with Democrats to vote against it, citing the cost. Yet among the lawmakers who voted down the $17.6 billion bill were 14 Republicans, most of whom argued that the bill was fiscally irresponsible. AdvertisementThis is the second time the House has voted on an Israel aid bill since the October 7, 2023, Hamas terrorist attacks. That was part of an attempt to unlink Israel aid from Ukraine aid, which is far more toxic to Republicans.
