Stacey Abrams, Hillary Clinton and Why Politicians Write Fiction
  + stars: | 2021-05-11 | by ( Mark Yarm | ) www.wsj.com + 0.00   time to read: +3 min
But a different sort of trend is making a comeback in 2021: Big-name politicians are writing fiction. Stacey Abrams’s While Justice Sleeps, which centers on Avery Keene, a law clerk for a U.S. Supreme Court justice, is out May 11. (The former Georgia gubernatorial candidate has also written eight romance titles under the pen name Selena Montgomery.) Another part of the appeal is the insider knowledge that people like the Clintons can bring to the page. “With the first book, there were certain reviewers who said, ‘I know exactly what Clinton wrote and what Patterson wrote,’” he recalls.

The Democrat Fighting H.R.1

Mr. Gardner has been overseeing Granite State voting since Dec. 2, 1976, a week before Stacey Abrams’s 3rd birthday. The longest-serving secretary of state in U.S. history, he’s an institution, famous for his apolitical commitment to the state’s constitution and its first-in-the-nation primary. It isn’t only that Mr. Gardner vehemently opposes his party’s H.R.1 bill, which would federally impose procedures such as early and absentee voting on the states. “Just because you make voting easier, it does not raise turnout automatically,” Mr. Gardner told the committee. In the hearing and in a subsequent interview with me, Mr. Gardner explained that some of these rules are part of the state’s constitution.

The Capitol Riot Showed Us America's Ugly Truth - The New York Times

It’s time we face this ugly truth, let it sink into the marrow of our bones, let it move us to action. But the more challenging narrative is that we now have to honor our salvation by doing something with it. For the first time in many years, Democrats will control the House, the Senate, and the presidency. If the Democrats dare to use the power they have amassed, a brave new world might be possible.

Democrats Dominate Fundraising in Georgia Senate Runoffs
  + stars: | 2020-12-24 | by ( Julie Bykowicz | Chad Day | ) www.wsj.com + 0.00   time to read: +4 min
Democrats are pouring money into the Georgia special election that will determine which party controls the Senate, with candidates Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock together collecting more than $210 million in two months, new fundraising filings show. If Democrats win both seats, the party would lead the White House and both legislative chambers—a fact the GOP has been playing up in its fundraising appeals and advertisements. Republicans are outpacing Democrats on TV largely thanks to a trio of big-spending outside groups with close ties to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell : American Crossroads, the Senate Leadership Fund and Peachtree PAC. But the Nov. 3 election showed fundraising success doesn’t necessarily translate into victory at the ballot box. Not counting Georgia, Republicans spent less on advertising in all but two of the 12 most competitive Senate races, yet won nine of those contests.
