The NR­SC has pur­chased five weeks of air­time en­tirely in At­lanta be­gin­ning Tues­day on be­half of busi­ness­man Dav­id Per­due (R). The com­mit­tee hasn’t con­firmed the buy, which was picked up by me­dia track­ers. It looks to be the first state in which the NR­SC will go on air, des­pite pur­chases in Alaska ($2.66 mil­lion), North Car­o­lina ($2.59 mil­lion), and Col­or­ado ($2.2 mil­lion).

STREET CRED: Former non­profit CEO Michelle Nunn’s (D) fath­er, former Sen. Sam Nunn (D), is help­ing her nav­ig­ate some of the top­ics he knows best on the trail: bi­par­tis­an­ship and mil­it­ary is­sues. Speak­ing at one cam­paign stop, Nunn called for a spir­it of co­oper­a­tion to be brought back to Wash­ing­ton. Her fath­er echoed the com­ments, tout­ing his own friend­ship with Bo Callaway dur­ing the Nix­on and Ford ad­min­is­tra­tions.

“Bo and I were ter­rif­ic friends and worked to­geth­er well, even though we had dif­fer­ent views on some things,” Nunn said. “He was Sec­ret­ary of the Army when I took over the Man­power Sub­com­mit­tee (of the Sen­ate Armed Ser­vices Com­mit­tee) and we ac­tu­ally worked to­geth­er to for a whole new bri­gade in the Army by work­ing to­geth­er to cut waste and in­ef­fi­cien­cies. That’s the kind of spir­it that seems to be too of­ten miss­ing today.” (Colum­bus Ledger-En­quirer)

At an­oth­er stop, Nunn met with act­ive duty troops and vet­er­ans to help pack boxes of food for fam­il­ies in need. The vis­it brought back memor­ies for the older Nunn, who re­minded the troops of his own fo­cus on their is­sues while in of­fice. “I spent a lot of time in my Sen­ate ca­reer with the mil­it­ary. I spent a lot of time with these bases like the Al­bany Mar­ine Base which is so im­port­ant to our Mar­ine Corp and na­tion­al se­cur­ity.” (WALB)

After spending a few minutes re-litigating the Democratic primary, Donald Trump turned his focus to Obamacare. “I inherited a mess, believe me. We also inherited a failed healthcare law that threatens our medical system with absolute and total catastrophe” he said. “I’ve been watching and nobody says it, but Obamacare doesn’t work.” He finished, "so we're going to repeal and replace Obamacare."

UPDATE

Donald Trump lobbed his first attack at the “dishonest media” about a minute into his speech, saying that the media would not appropriately cover the standing ovation that he received. “We are fighting the fake news,” he said, before doubling down on his previous claim that the press is “the enemy of the people." However, he made a distinction, saying that he doesn't think all media is the enemy, just the "fake news."

THE LATEST

"The FBI rejected a recent White House request to publicly knock down media reports about communications between Donald Trump's associates and Russians known to US intelligence during the 2016 presidential campaign, multiple US officials briefed on the matter tell CNN. But a White House official said late Thursday that the request was only made after the FBI indicated to the White House it did not believe the reporting to be accurate."
