The Trump campaign withdrew its last remaining federal lawsuit in Michigan this morning, falsely claiming that local election officials had declined to certify the Detroit-area’s vote tabulation even though they voted unanimously to do so Tuesday night politico.com/news/2020/11/1…
At the heart of the Trump campaign’s claim are two affidavits — filed by the GOP election officials who joined Dems to certify the votes in Wayne County Tuesday night — claiming they only did so under significant public pressure politico.com/news/2020/11/1…
The two officials both initially voted to oppose certifying the results, potentially upending the count of hundreds of thousands of votes in Detroit and its suburbs. But within hours they reversed and backed certification. politico.com/news/2020/11/1…

Democrats will also nominate House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer and House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.) for new terms — cementing the trio that has ruled the caucus for the last 14 years politi.co/2IMIAHD

Nancy Pelosi and her top deputies aren't going anywhere. But the House Dem leadership elections that begin this week will likely reveal what a post-Pelosi future might look like. Here’s who's in play in the caucus elections: politi.co/2UBkkdY Image
Hakeem Jeffries is running unopposed for a second and final term as the House Democratic Caucus chair. His decision to run again suggests he's not trying to take on Pelosi, despite a whisper campaign by some Dems hoping he’d do so.
As for the contested races, Katherine Clark and David Cicilline are vying for the party’s No. 4 position, assistant speaker. (The job is currently held by Ben Ray Luján, who was just elected to the Senate.) politi.co/2UBkkdY ImageImage
