New: The Commission on Presidential Debates was unanimous in their decision to hold the second debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden virtually, two members of the commission tell CNN. They met on Wednesday to discuss the change. One member was absent and did not vote.

The Biden campaign wants what would have been the third and final debate on October 22nd to now be a town hall format, given Trump's refusal to do a virtual event. "The voters should have a chance to ask questions of both candidates, directly," says @KBeds . Full statement:

Wow: @harrisonjaime ’s SC Senate campaign announces they have raised $57 million in Q3, calling it “the highest quarterly amount raised by a US Senate candidate in American history.” It’s hard to imagine Harrison being able to spend that much money between now and Election Day.

Four years on from Donald Trump's unlikely victory, the psychic wounds of Hillary Clinton's loss remains fresh. Meaning even as Joe Biden leads, Democrats agonize. Constantly. w/ @GregJKrieg :


Ivanka Trump this month: "There is a level of viciousness that I was not expecting. ... I was a little blindsided by on a personal level."

A Trump supporting soybean farmer whose farm has lost ≈ $250k in value due to tariffs: “This isn't just numbers on a sheet or percentage of trade or dollar value. This is multi-generational American families, your base, that you are now squarely putting into financial peril."

Trump, per a source, will follow the 4-yr rule to get out of Paris, meaning the US will leave on Nov 4, 2020. Election Day 2020: Nov 3.

This man’s wife - Jo Cox - is the British MP who was murdered last year by a man who reportedly shouted “Britain First" as he attacked her. Trump just retweeted the deputy leader of Britain First.

Trump has arrived at Trump International Golf Club in Florida. This makes 10 straight weekends he has visited a property bearing his name.

Andrew Cuomo has turned his blunt, slideshow-aided daily press conferences on the Coronavirus into must watch TV for people far beyond New York. And, in doing so, the governor has set up a powerful contrast with Donald Trump. More here w/ @GregJKrieg :

@Scaramucci  on CNN: "There are people inside the administration that think it is their job to save America from this president. Ok?"
