Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is fundraising for housing bubble whistleblower Katie Porter (D), a UC Irvine law professor challenging Rep. Mimi Walters (R). “The Republican Congresswoman who holds that seat has voted with Donald Trump 97.8% of the time this year — including votes to repeal health care for millions of Americans, defund Planned Parenthood, and gut the rules on Wall Street. I’ve seen Katie’s commitment and grit up close and personal,” Warren wrote in the email. (Politico)

CA-48. “Of the 22 Democrats who’ve already launched campaigns against” Orange County’s “four GOP House members, at least 10 were on hand Saturday” at the annual Truman Awards. In the race against Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R), stem cell biologist Hans Keirstead (D) “one of the top early fundraisers in the Rohrabacher race, said he hopes endorsements by members of Congress and by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee will prompt Democrats with less support to drop out. Keirstead was helped with his entry into the race by the DCCC and said he confers with DCCC leaders weekly. But another top fundraiser in the race,” businessman Harley Rouda (D), “said the DCCC is also helping his campaign. ‘The only way our campaign will end is if we don’t advance past the primary,’” he said. (Orange County Register)

CA-10. “Six of the eight Democratic challengers looking to unseat” Rep. Jeff Denham (R) “gathered” last week for a debate, where they “discussed their plans for the country’s healthcare and the economy during a series of question rounds, where two candidates were called up at a time to answer questions, as well as give a rebuttal to their opponent’s response. Participating in the debate were” registered nurse Dotty Nygard (D), investor Josh Harder (D), former Riverbank Mayor Virginia Madueno (D), former congressional aide Mateo Morelos Bedolla (D), Navy veteran Mike Barkley (D), and en­gin­eer TJ Cox (D). “According to pre- and post-debate audience polls conducted by Our Revolution Turlock, shift in support from ‘unlikely’ to ‘likely’ was greatest for Cox and Madueño, and Nygard was the only candidate who was able to turn a substantial number of ‘unlikely’ supporters into ‘very likely’ supporters.” (Turlock Journal)

"House Republican leaders are further delaying a vote on a compromise immigration bill, planning to make changes to the legislation for a vote next week. The news comes after a two-hour Republican Conference meeting Thursday, in which authors of the bill walked through its contents and members raised concerns about issues the bill doesn’t address, multiple GOP lawmakers said. Many members requested the addition of a provision to require employers to use the E-Verify database to cheek the legal status of their employees."

GOP leaders, however, are under no impression that they'll be able to secure the 218 votes needed in the next 24 hours to pass the text. Rather, the delay is to give members more time to read the bill."
