Minneapolis Hotel Rooms Should Be Available Last Minute

If you want to go and check out the scene at the Republican National Convention, you shouldn’t have a problem. It’s not like the hotel rooms in Minneapolis will be taken by Republicans. Politico:

Of the 12 Republicans running in competitive Senate races — five of whom are incumbents — only three have said they will be attending the convention. Six are definite no-shows, and three are on the fence.

“Nobody likes a funeral,” said a Senate Republican press secretary…

Ouch. Things are so bad, the National Republican Campaign Committee Chairman, Tom Cole of Oklahoma, is actually discouraging Republican congressional challengers from attending. According to the Hill he called heading to Minneapolis for the convention a “waste of time.”

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
