  • Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has suggested that Democrats may retain control of the Senate due to Republican "candidate quality," a thinly veiled criticism of Trump's underperforming endorsees.
  • White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain has talked up the achievements of President Biden and offered a blueprint for how frontline Democrats will present the Democrat performance on the midterm campaign trail.
  • The European Union may call a Joint Commission to finalise agreement on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action nuclear accords as soon as next week.
