Liz Cheney predicted a "splintered" Republican party if Trump wins the 2024 nominee. Cheney has previously said that she will no longer be a Republican if Trump is the nominee. Former President Trump continues to tease a 2024 run ahead of the November midterms in which Democrats and Republicans are fighting a close battle for control of Congress. If Trump does announce a campaign and ultimately cinches the Republican spot, Cheney predicted the party would "shatter." "I think that Donald Trump, he's the only president in American history who refused to guarantee a peaceful transition of power," Cheney said.

"There are some extreme right-wing voters who are racists, who are sexists, who are homophobes, xenophobes.
Evan McMullin reaffirmed that he wouldn't caucus with either party if elected to the Senate as an Independent. McMullin contrasted his independence with Mike Lee, his Republican general election opponent. Todd presented a scenario of the Senate having 50-49 composition, with McMullin potentially being a deciding vote on the body's leadership. I think that this will give Utah an added value of influence in the Senate that it just doesn't have. Polling in recent months has largely shown a competitive contest between McMullin and Lee in the solidly Republican state.

The United States has warned Russia there will be "catastrophic" consequences if Moscow uses nuclear weapons after setbacks in its war in Ukraine. National security adviser Jake Sullivan told NBC News' "Meet the Press" Sunday that the consequences "would be catastrophic if Russia went down the dark road of nuclear weapons use." Putin has made a string of nuclear threats against Ukraine and the West as a whole since he launched his invasion just over seven months ago. Russia has the largest nuclear arsenal in the world with almost 6,000 nuclear warheads and 1,500 of them currently deployed, according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, an independent think tank that tracks global stockpiles. It has also triggered an exodus of Russians attempting to flee the draft, clogging border crossings and snapping up available flights.

Democrats had been spending millions of dollars in Republican primaries elevating extreme candidates who falsely insist Donald Trump won the 2020 election, in hopes of facing weaker opponents in the general election. The raw political calculus that underpins the Democrats’ midterm election strategy is at odds with President Joe Biden’s core political message that democracy is in peril. Biden appears to have accepted the tradeoff involved: If boosting election-denying candidates saves even a few Democratic congressional seats, it’s worth the risk. NBC News asked the White House what Biden thinks of the practice and whether he’s ever voiced qualms about it. During the 2016 presidential campaign, many Democrats saw Trump as the weakest and, hence, most desirable opponent in the general election.

Sen. Dick Durbin called GOP governors "pathetic" for relocating migrants to different states. Governors DeSantis and Abbott have flown and bussed immigrants to northern states and Washington, DC. On Sunday, Durbin, the Democratic Whip, said the GOP governors are jeopardizing migrants' stay in the US by relocating them. We saw it with the forcible removal of children from their parents, some who've never been reunited with their families," Durbin said.
