NATIONAL

These white people will respond to your racist trolls so you don’t have to.

Single-payer Dems: Save Obamacare now, single-payer later. Bernie Sanders, Cory Booker, and other luminaries behind Medicare-for-All rallied with Planned Parenthood to save the ACA.

Run, Mika Brzezinski. Run far. Christie’s awkward moment with Mika on Morning Joe.

MENENDEZ TRIAL

Prosecutors zero in on the charge legal experts say Sen. Menendez may be most vulnerable: He concealed gifts he received from Florida eye doctor Salomon Melgen.

On Salomon Melgen: Was Menendez’ friend & co-defendent a ‘constituent’? Lawyers debate.

Gonna need your vote, buddy. With Graham-Cassidy deadline looming, will Menendez vote?

PARKER SPACE, LITTLE CONFEDERATE BITCH-BABY

Parker Space: Who raised this guy? Calls his woman opponent a bitch. Has no apologies.

Weinberg calls on Space to resign. So does Mark Matzen, now running DACC.

This item, from Matt Friedman’s POLITICO NJ Playbook, is just WTF:
LOST IN SPACE – Jacqueline Stapel, executive director of the Sussex County Democratic Committee who ran against Space in 2015, was one of the people involved in the conversation in which Space called his opponent ‘a bitch.’ And she’s not happy it was leaked to me. “As an individual and a Sussex County resident, I am deeply offended that a private conversation amongst myself, Jennifer Hamilton, and Parker Space was secretly recorded and leaked to the media for cheap political gain. As an American, I denounce its secret leakage and use by the media and political campaigns because it is undermining everyone’s privacy rights.” Stapel called Space a “friend.”

SO NOT COOL
