THE WIDE WORLD OF NEWS PRIMARY DAY PREVIEW:
Wait for the results and then discuss them later, like maybe Tuesday night — or Wednesday morning.
NOT FUNNY AND A LITTLE BIT SAD (via the Washington Post’s curtain raise of the Bidens’ trip to Pennsylvania on Tuesday):
More than one Black leader cited as a model President Barack Obama’s trip to Charleston, S.C., in the aftermath of the racist killing of nine members of Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church there in 2015. In one of the most electrifying moments of his presidency, Obama sang the opening words of “Amazing Grace” before a crowd of 6,000 rose to join him.
Sharpton said Biden needs a similar “I’m-really-paying-attention-to-this kind of moment.” He added, “It sent a dramatic signal, and I think a White House summit in the next few days would show that he really sees this as a priority.”
FUNNY (via an exclusive Breitbart interview with Kathy Barnette in which she declined to say she would support her Republican Senate rivals if she loses the primary):
“I have no intentions of supporting globalists,” Barnette said. “I believe we have ran out of room on this runway for this spaceship. I believe we have very little rope left to just roll the dice and we’ll see how it all works out on the other end. I believe our country is in trouble. I don’t believe we have much longer and I believe what I have done is I have made it possible where Pennsylvanians do not have to hold their nose and vote for the lesser of two evils this time. I don’t think we have room to just vote for any old warm body with an R next to their name. I think we can do better than that.”
FUNNY BUT ONLY IF YOU ARE ALREADY IN ON THE JOKE (via the Washington Post’s long-overdue takeout on Donald Trump and Club for Growth):
“They’re spending millions and millions of dollars, and I’m saying that could certainly break up a romance. That could break up a good romance,” Trump said of the group’s involvement in the Pennsylvania and Ohio Senate races.
Trump said he wasn’t sure why McIntosh was working hard against his candidates.
“I don’t know. Maybe they’re trying to prove a point. So far it hasn’t worked,” he said. “It’s almost like they wanted to show me something.”
If the feud sticks, McIntosh could join a long list of former campaign advisers and administration officials whose efforts to influence Trump ended in bruising public spats.
“David got pretty swept up in all the stuff. He got in pretty deep,” said a person familiar with the Club for Growth’s operations who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss confidential conversations. “Maybe he thought he was playing Trump. There’s a chance he thought he was smarter than Trump. It obviously didn’t work.”
