In “an ef­fort to shore up her 2018 re-elec­tion ef­fort,” Sen. Eliza­beth War­ren (D) “hired Kristen Orth­man, a well-re­spec­ted com­mu­nic­a­tions staffer who pre­vi­ously worked for former Demo­crat­ic Lead­er Harry Re­id (D-NV).” (Politico)

JUMP­ING IN. Sher­iff Joshua Ford (I) an­nounced he will run for War­ren’s seat.

“Up­set by what he calls a cor­rupt two-party sys­tem bought and paid for by cor­por­a­tions, Ford … said he felt he had to step up to make a change be­cause he felt no one else would.”

Ford sup­por­ted Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) dur­ing the pres­id­en­tial race. (Wicked Loc­al)
