Scoop: @marcorubio urged Joe Biden on Tuesday night to immediately call on Congress to pass $2,000 stimulus checks as a sign of congressional unity, according to a letter obtained by @axios…
"It would send a powerful message to the American people if, on the first day of your presidency, you called on the House and Senate to send you legislation to increase the direct economic impact payments to Americans struggling ... from $600 to $2,000," Rubio wrote
The letter:
For people who didn’t click to read the story — of course I know both Biden & Rubio have already supported $2k checks

The point is Rubio is trying portray himself as a practical partisan and trying to find ways to smooth over the political damage after last week

Scoop: On Tuesday, Reps. Nancy Mace (R-S.C.) and Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) got in a heated back and forth on a text chain with all freshmen GOP members, according to sources who've read the text messages…
The conversation started when Greene — a fierce defender of President Trump and former QAnon backer — sent an article to the chain claiming the president’s approval numbers had increased in December
Mace, who came out early against Republicans who planned to reject the election results, fired back: “I’m disgusted by what you and other Q-conspiracy theorists did last week in the chamber after all of the violence.”

Exclusive: Pro-Trump super PAC America First Action has been tracking favorable/unfavorable ratings in FL, GA, MI, NC, OH & PA for Biden, Sanders, Warren, Buttigieg & Bloomberg—under the theory that if Trump wins each of these 6 states he wins re-election…
The spending isn't expected to begin until it's clear who the Democratic nominee will be, whether that's after next week's Super Tuesday or in July

The super PAC has pulled together about 500 pages of research on four of the five candidates, with about 300 pages on Buttigieg
I reviewed overall and state-by-state data the group provided on each of the candidates

Biden still enjoyed the most favorable numbers of those Democrats in each of the six states, but slid underwater between Aug 2019 & Jan 2020, from 46%-48%- favorable/unfavorable to 44%-50%
