John Kasich is going to speak at the Democratic convention and endorse Joe Biden.

Quote:
Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a Republican and frequent Trump critic, has been approached and is expected to speak at the Democratic National Convention on Biden's behalf next month, according to a person with direct knowledge of the plans who insisted on anonymity to discuss strategy. Kasich is among a handful of high-profile Republicans likely to become more active in supporting Biden in the fall.

This is delightful. Kasich is DubDub's guy from 2016, right?

And Ohio gets that much more interesting.

They should invite Romney, George Conway, and the Lincoln Project members to speak as well...

Doubt Romney would. If you invite any of the Lincoln Project guys invite Steve Schmidt.

Expected to speak. Not will speak.

The GOP pressure is going to come down on him like a ton of bricks. His political career is over if he does. Let’s see if he actually does it.

The Cult45 members will come down on him but I doubt the Bush/McCain rank and file members will.

I was watching Chuck Todd about a week ago and he was breaking down some of the more granular questions in one of the big recent polls that they asked Republicans. They asked if the respondent was a Trump Republican or a Party Republican. Respondents split 50/50. They then asked a host of questions about everything from the economy to the handling of COVID-19. The only things the two groups agree on is that they want Republicans to win and economics. They don't agree on COVID-19. They don't agree on race relations. They didn't agree on anything else but those two things.

The Republican civil war is coming.

The sheriff of Jacksonville, Fla., said he can’t provide security for the Republican National Convention because of a lack of clear plans, adequate funding and enough law enforcement officers.

“As we're talking today, we are still not close to having some kind of plan that we can work with that makes me comfortable that we're going to keep that event and the community safe,” Duval County Sheriff Mike Williams told POLITICO.

Typical Trump

If 2020 follows to form, surely a tropical storm or hurricane will hit Jacksonville that week, too.

I'm shocked and thankful he didn't come after Atlanta... yet.
