Many of these districts will be won or lost by very small margins—margins that can be drastically influenced by the power of centrally organized, volunteer based, and data-driven field strategies.

    "In the same time frame" the donations occurred, Walked signed into law changes passed by the Republican-led Legislature that would have made companies like NL Industries effectively immune from compensation claims for lead paint poisoning.

    Donald Trump’s phony prayer for the black vote at an African-American church in Detroit should not distract us from the truth. Ever since Barack Obama was elected as our first black president in 2008, the GOP-controlled state legislatures have been passing laws to block black and brown voters from voting.

    In just four states are felons permanently barred from voting absent action by the governor. And in one of them, Virginia, lawmakers are considering an even more restrictive regime that would forever foreclose the possibility of redemption for tens of thousands of citizens.

    These are not obscure cases, but rather decisions on two of the hottest current subjects, abortion and voting rights. I’m in no way suggesting that the Supreme Court’s June 27 decision in the Texas abortion case or the appeals court decisions last month invalidating voter ID laws in Texas and North Carolina have been overlooked.
