Introductions News Draft

I thought a New York Times update was an interesting article to discuss. 

I could only find the story on NYT’s Live Election Updates page, which changes as the news changes. Since the story can be hard to find from the link, or missing by tomorrow, I saved the article that interested me as a pdf available only to folks using an account.

Do you remember when Trump floated postponing the election in late July? There were some colorful quotes at that time from other politicians:

“Never in the history of the country, through wars, depressions and the Civil War, have we ever not had a federally scheduled election on time, and we’ll find a way to do that again this Nov. 3,” Mr. McConnell said.

“Only Congress can change the date of our elections, and under no circumstances will we consider doing so to accommodate the president’s inept and haphazard response to the coronavirus pandemic,” said Representative Zoe Lofgren, Democrat of California and the chair of the Administration Committee, which oversees elections.
