Fund-raising invitations obtained by The New York Times […]

Election Deniers in Senate Races Shift to Appeal to Voters in Middle

At a Republican debate just before the Sept. 13 primary, Mr. Bolduc, a retired brigadier general in the Army, declared unequivocally, “I signed a letter with 120 other generals and admirals saying that Trump won the election, and, damn it, I stand by my letter.” He added for good measure, “I’m not switching horses, baby.

Rally With Trump? Some G.O.P. Candidates Aren’t Thrilled About It.

Former President Donald J. Trump is preparing to swoop into Ohio on Saturday to rally Republicans behind J.D. Vance in a key Senate race. Two weeks earlier, he did the same for Mehmet Oz in Pennsylvania. Neither candidate invited him. Instead, aides to the former president simply informed the Senate campaigns that he was coming. […]

Herschel Walker Tests the Importance of ‘Candidate Quality’

Mehmet Oz could prevail over John Fetterman in Pennsylvania’s Senate election and, well, I’m not sure what that would mean. The carnival (and crudités) of that contest precludes tidy lessons. And it’s impossible to know what voters will or won’t make of Fetterman’s stroke earlier this year. Ron Johnson could defeat Mandela Barnes in Wisconsin, […]

Fetterman Says Stroke Problems Have Not Slowed Down a ‘Normal’ Campaign

Four months after suffering a stroke he described as a “near-death experience,” Lt. Gov. John Fetterman of Pennsylvania acknowledges lingering problems with his speech and hearing that sometimes cause verbal miscues.

Live by the Trump, Die by the Trump

When we met here three weeks ago, many of you were aptly besotted with Dwight Garner’s review of Jared Kushner’s White House memoir, “Breaking History,” in The Times. Although I showcased one sentence from it, I could have showcased half a dozen. That review yielded more nominations for this feature than any article ever had. […]

How a New Class of Republicans Could Push America to the Right

Much of the attention paid to Donald Trump’s favorite candidates running in the midterms has focused — rightly! — on their support for relitigating the 2020 election. (Which, for those still unsure, was not stolen.) But across a range of policy issues, including abortion, climate change, same-sex marriage and education, Trump’s MAGA warriors have taken […]

Finally, a Dr. Oz Show That I Really Want to Watch

I must have watched a few whole episodes of “The Dr. Oz Show” when I wrote a long profile of Mehmet Oz for the Times Magazine back in 2010, but afterward? Please. I’m a glutton, but not for punishment, and the snippets of the show that I’d happen upon convinced me that snippets sufficed. Oz […]

Can Democrats Avoid a Midterm Wipeout?

Mainstream Democrats have historically treated abortion as a divisive issue best left on the periphery of their campaign strategy. (Biden himself did not utter the word “abortion” until more than a year into his presidency.) But this election season, some Democrats are actively campaigning on the issue, wagering that the Supreme Court’s abrogation of the […]
