We preview two big elections that will be decided on Tuesday. Al Cross analyzes the gubernatorial contest in ruby red Kentucky, where Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear, running on his record and support for reproductive rights, is thought to be favored against state Attorney General Daniel Cameron, a black Republican who is a protege of Mitch McConnell and endorsed by Donald Trump. And in Virginia, both houses of the General Assembly are up for grabs, and Bob Holsworth says a GOP sweep could enhance the national image of Gov. Glenn Youngkin, a popular Republican who is not up this year but who is putting his entire political muscle into the effort. But should Democrats hold onto the state Senate AND take the house of delegates, it could send a signal that support for abortion rights is a winning issue.
PLUS: Republicans continue harping on Biden’s mental ability while Trump continues to spew nonsense and gibberish … Mike Pence ends his presidential campaign … and GOP senators have finally had enough with Tommy Tuberville’s tactics.
