LEADING THE DAY: PROGRESSIVES FACE TESTS IN NEW YORK AND KENTUCKY PRIMARIES 

Progressives are hoping for big wins in New York and Kentucky this evening as voters across the two states head out to vote in a number of critical primaries. 

In Kentucky, Democratic establishment favorite Amy McGrath will face off against progressive state Rep. Charles Booker (D) in the primary that will determine who will go up against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnellAddison (Mitch) Mitchell McConnellTrump says he supports another round of stimulus checks NAACP Legal Defense Fund urges Senate to reject GOP police reform bill OVERNIGHT ENERGY: Internal watchdog probing Park Police actions toward Lafayette Square protesters | Democrats detail their .5T green infrastructure plan | Green groups challenge Trump water rules rollback MORE in November.

Bowman’s campaign announced on Friday that he had raised $2 million during the campaign from more than 65,000 individual donors, touting the strength of his progressive base. Additionally, a Data for Progress survey showed Bowman up 10 points over Engel. The congressman’s campaign, on the other hand, said their internal polling showed Engel leading Bowman by eight points. 

Regardless, Booker and Bowman are seen as the leaders of a progressive pack looking to make gains in tonight’s primaries. 

Booker gave Bowman a shoutout on Twitter today, telling voters to imagine the two of them in in Washington, D.C., together.

Dozens of former national security officials are banding together to back Biden in the presidential election, Reuters’ Tim Reid reports. The group includes more than two dozen officials who served in the presidential administrations of Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and George Bush, per Reuters’ reporting, and is set to endorse Biden publicly in the coming weeks.
