KANSAS. Another Senate seat is in play: “Kansas Senate candidate Barbara Bollier was a life-long Republican, but in 2018 she decided she’d had enough: Fed up by the party’s lurch to the right in Washington and Topeka, the 62-year-old state legislator divorced the GOP and became a Democrat. Two years later, she’s asking Kansans to join her and do something they haven’t since Franklin Roosevelt was president: elect a Democrat to the Senate — and possibly make Chuck Schumer the majority leader in the process.”

HAVANA SYNDROME. Mysterious sonic attacks on U.S. diplomats which took place in Cuba and China now extend to Russia: “The cases involving C.I.A. officers, none of which have been publicly reported, are adding to suspicions that Russia carried out the attacks worldwide. Some senior Russia analysts in the C.I.A., officials at the State Department and outside scientists, as well as several of the victims, see Russia as the most likely culprit given its history with weapons that cause brain injuries and its interest in fracturing Washington’s relations with Beijing and Havana.”
