Primary season is gearing up, and Tuesday's primaries in four states are proving as pivotal as national elections. Once again, candidates endorsed by Donald Trump are in hot races with others in the primary. Once again, America waits to see if those Trump endorsements continue to pay off.
U.S. Congress
Since a leaked draft of a Supreme Court decision that would appear to overturn Roe v. Wade appeared last week, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) vowed to hold a vote on the Women's Health Protection Act, a bill that would "establish a national right to abortion." All fifty Senate Republicans voted against the bill, and moderate Joe Manchin (D-WV) joined Republicans in voting against the bill.
U.S. Supreme Court
Late last night, Politico released a story on a leaked Supreme Court opinion draft. This draft was written by Justice Samuel Alito, a conservative member of the Court. The opinion is in regards to the Thomas v. Dobbs case originating in Mississippi, where a suit was brought regarding state legislation that prohibits an abortion after fifteen weeks of pregnancy.
