Former Sec­ret­ary of State Hil­lary Clin­ton (D) “and her al­lies con­tin­ue to dom­in­ate the pres­id­en­tial battle­ground-state air­waves, out­spend­ing” real es­tate mogul Don­ald Trump (R) and pro-Trump groups this month, $26 mil­lion to $0, ac­cord­ing to ad-spend­ing data from SMG Delta. For the week, it’s $7.5 mil­lion to $0 in the eight battle­grounds of Col­or­ado, Flor­ida, Iowa, North Car­o­lina, New Hamp­shire, Nevada, Ohio and Vir­gin­ia. And when you add fu­ture ad re­ser­va­tions, it’s $140 mil­lion to $0. In these battle­ground states, the Clin­ton cam­paign has spent nearly $9 mil­lion in ads this month, while af­fil­i­ated out­side groups like the pro-Clin­ton Su­per PAC Pri­or­it­ies USA have chipped in an ad­di­tion­al $17 mil­lion. The sole pro-Trump ad­vert­iser, Re­build­ing Amer­ica Now, has aired com­mer­cials on na­tion­al cable TV, not in the battle­grounds-at a price tag of $1.2 mil­lion so far.” (NBC News)

HARD CHOICES. “Monday’s Su­preme Court rul­ing toss­ing Texas abor­tion re­stric­tions puts a massive spot­light on the new de­bate press­ing evan­gel­ic­als: Which is a worse sin, ra­cism or abor­tion?”

“This ques­tion of how to deal with Hil­lary Clin­ton’s ro­bust sup­port for abor­tion rights along with Trump’s chal­len­ging of the place of minor­it­ies is one of the most com­mon at evan­gel­ic­als’ din­ner tables today, lay­ing bare di­vi­sions between young and old and white and non-white. And it is a chal­lenge to the evan­gel­ic­al-GOP al­li­ance that has been sac­rosanct for gen­er­a­tions.” (Wash­ing­ton Post)
