I shall post videos, graphs, news stories, and other material there. We shall use some of this material in class, and you may review the rest at your convenience. You will all receive invitations to post to the blog. (Please let me know if you do not get such an invitation.) I encourage you to use the blog in these ways:
To post questions or comments about the readings before we discuss them in class;
To follow up on class discussions with additional comments or questions.
To post relevant news items or videos.

There are only two major limitations: no coarse language, and no derogatory comments about people at the Claremont Colleges.

Politico: Trump expands House battleground map

In class we've brought up the likelihood of the Democrats retaking the Senate, or at least the apparent likelihood of it happening; even though Dems need about 30 seats in the house to retake it, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi thinks it's possible--and of course Trump is a major factor.

Interesting part for me: “Throughout the year, there have been folks on the other side who have made the claim that all they have to do is tie our member to Donald Trump and game over,” Walden said. “I’m not seeing empirical data that backs up that.” Should prospective candidates tie themselves to Trump or actively avoid association with him? What's going to boost your numbers? It seems that even in districts that have Clinton winning, "traditional" republican bases will still go red. Does supporting Trump hurt or help your cause in those cases?
