Trump’s endorsements beginning to hurt GOP candidates
One of the big landslides of tonight that’s going to have long term implications is what’s happening in Florida, where Governor Ron DeSantis is going to be winning his race by close to 20 points. That’s more than twice what anyone was expecting at the time. I think that’s going to be very helpful for his presidential ambitions should he decide to run and may not be so helpful for former President Trump. I’d also point out that Trump’s endorsements are beginning to hurt Republican chances in the Senate. His choice in New Hampshire is now running behind. His choice in Ohio is not doing anywhere near as well, as was expected.
And we don’t know whether his choice in Georgia is going to pay off. So one of the subtext tonight is what are Republicans going to think of Donald Trump at the end of the night?

Rising support for Hamas among students highlights ignorance
Tensions are rising on college campuses as pro-Israeli and pro-Palestinian students clash, increasing calls for heightened security measures and even the resignation of top administrators. Some universities have taken the step of banning pro-Palestinian groups, accusing them of supporting Hamas and openly endorsing the Oct. 7 attack on Israel.

Chinese disappearances are no mere coincidence
Xi Jinping has greatly expanded his power and authority within China since rising to the presidency in 2013. In similarly authoritarian systems, political disappearances, assassinations, and abductions frequently rise. Throughout 2023, observers have noticed these events playing out in China. Even the most powerful and high-profile Chinese politicians have fallen victim to secretive disappearances and
US debt interest is cause for concern
Economist Paul Krugman recently said that interest payments on U.S. debt won’t be a major concern in the years ahead. The U.S. national debt is almost at $33 trillion, and the interest payments alone on that debt are approaching $500 billion per year.
