Grandson of Terrorist Runs for Congress • California politics has become the stuff of headlines. Democrat Ammar Campa-Najjar is running for Congress in California to unseat GOP Rep. Duncan Hunter. Campa-Najjar, a former Obama reelection campaign director, says he wants to provide California a leader who is not embroiled in scandal, a reference to Hunter, who is accused of improperly using political funds, Politico reports. But Campa-Najjar is the


grandson of an architect of the 1972 Palestinian terrorist attack that killed 11 Israeli athletes at the Olympics. Campa-Najjar says he does not share his grandfather’s beliefs and has strong ties with the Jewish community.


All Eyes on Connecticut • Normally solidly blue Connecticut just might experience a change of color as Donald Trump is making political waves there. Two-term Gov. Dannel Malloy’s approval rating is down lower than that of any other Democratic governor in the nation, according to a Morning Consult poll. And during the Malloy era, the Republican Party has racked up gains in the state. They need to fl ip only fi ve seats in the House and one in the Senate to become the majority party. The pre-Trump GOP


had managed to lock up total control of 23 statehouses as of early 2015, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures, whereas Democrats held only seven.


QUOTABLE | NOTABLE Federal surveillance authority is an


important tool to combat terrorism and keep Americans safe, but it must be used by the book in order to protect the constitutional rights and civil liberties of all Americans.”


— Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, on surveillance used in Trump-Russia probe, at a news conference

GOP’s Lindstrom Takes on Elizabeth Warren • GOP Senate candidate Beth Lindstrom says Elizabeth Warren has done little for Massachusetts, and in fact, Warren railed against Trump’s tax cuts. She says it’s time for


Warren to go — and she plans to unseat her in November. “Warren’s abrasive style of leadership is driving people apart,” Lindstrom wrote in a statement on her website. Lindstrom earned name recognition as a member of Mitt Romney’s Cabinet when he was governor, and her no-holds-barred approach is earning her street cred. Appearing on Boston Herald Radio last February, she said Sen. Warren was pandering to her “presidential aspirations” instead of her constituents.


Ted Cruz Stares Down Democratic Threat • Meet Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke — a former guitarist in a punk rock band who is pro-choice and pro-immigration. He’s eyeing Ted Cruz’s Texas Senate seat in November. And if that seems unlikely, consider a recent Public Policy Polling survey that showed him within single digits — 45 to 37 percent — of Ted Cruz. O’Rourke could be positioned to defy history: Democrats have not won a Senate race in Texas since 1988. O’Rourke has so far raised $5 million from more than 10,000 contributors. Despite that, Ted Cruz


remains the front-runner — and the best bet in a state with a modern history of voting faithfully to the right. (Translation: Not likely, O’Rourke.)
