Why picking Tim Kaine probably doesn’t do much for Hillary Clinton in Virginia

washingtonpost.com — During the run-up to the blessedly now-concluded vice-presidential picks by Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, one refrain was common: How will the running mates help either candidate win election?

It’s taken Donald Trump more than a month to figure out how to start fundraising

washingtonpost.com — The very first day that Donald Trump's campaign began fundraising in earnest was June 21 -- precisely one month before he accepted his party's nomination in Cleveland on Thursday night. We know that because the campaign filed its June fundraising report with the FEC this week, detailing contributions by day.

In true Trump style, Ivanka Trump figures she can sell a few dresses off her convention speech

washingtonpost.com — There are actually quite a few guides on the internet offering suggestions on making money off of political campaigns.

Donald Trump isn’t making television ratings great again. Unhappy!

washingtonpost.com — Donald Trump must have seen Karl Rove complaining about him on TV or something, because Trump tweeted. One of the best produced, including the incredible stage & set, in the history of conventions. Great unity! Big T.V. ratings! @KarlRove - Donald J.

Who, exactly, was Ivanka Trump endorsing?

washingtonpost.com — As the second-to-last speaker at the Republican convention, Ivanka Trump had two goals. First, to leverage her likability on behalf of the next speaker, her father. And, second, to demonstrate to women that Donald Trump was the sort of candidate that would have their backs. "My father values talent," Ivanka Trump said.

The simple reason Republicans are furious at Ted Cruz

nypost.com — Donald Trump isn't the most popular Republican presidential nominee ever. Sure, he got more votes than any nominee in history, but he also set a record for most votes cast against him. He cobbled together the necessary majority of delegates to win the nomination, but had one of the smallest majorities in the history of the Republican Party.

By creating a fake sense of crisis, Trump’s speech raised questions about how he’d handle a real one

washingtonpost.com — To mark the first anniversary of the day that terrorists hijacked four planes and used them to murder thousands of people and obliterate a chunk of lower Manhattan, New York magazine compiled a set of statistics about the attacks. 60 police officers were killed. 343 firefighters were killed.
