The Top 3 Debate Moments from the Past Week
Political debates are some of the most pivotal and poignant moments during any campaign. In some cases, it’s two individuals and a moderator in a room, debating the issues. In other scenarios, there’s more than two candidates and an enthusiastic audience in the room. No matter the breakdown, there’s always excitement in the air when the individuals who have stated their visions to voters, come face to face with each other.
AR Intel tracked the three most interested debate moments from the past week and compiled them here for you to see. Let us know — was there a debate you watched this week that we missed?

Blue Wave? A Trio of New Senate Polls Throws Cold Water on That Notion
A president’s first midterm is often used as a “check” on that president’s power, typically in the form of voters electing members from the opposing party to positions in Congress. A “wave” election occurs when one party broadly sweeps another out of power, and Democrats are hoping for a “blue wave” in 2018.
But a slew of new Senate polls released this week demonstrates just how difficult it will be for Democrats to accomplish “wave” status. To see the polls and analysis, sign up for a free 7-day trial of AR Intel!
The Top 10 Red State Democrats in Online Fundraising This July

Primary Recap: What Happened in Connecticut, Minnesota, & Wisconsin
Tuesday night marked yet another busy primary day across the country, as voters flocked to the polls in states like Connecticut, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.

Senate Democrats’ Q2 Fundraising Numbers
Red state Democrats will need all the help they can get in the final months leading up to the midterm elections this November. AR Intel has been consistently tracking the fundraising totals of Senate Democrats running in states won by President Trump in the 2016 election.
Many of these incumbents are running for their third or fourth term, but few have faced an environment as challenging as this one. Trump won several of the states that these Democrats represent by larger than 20-point margins.
So, how well did Democrats do in the second quarter of 2018? To find out and get exclusive access to AR Intel’s Q2 fundraising infographic, sign up today!
Axios: Brutal poll: Democrats’ Senate dream slips away
To win the Senate, Democrats need to keep all 10 seats they’re defending in states that President Trump won in 2016 — plus pick up two more seats.
Why it matters: That’s not happening. A new Axios/SurveyMonkey poll of key states shows Dems would lose three of those red-state seats while picking up two GOP seats — still short of the majority.

SCOTUS Nomination (So Far): By The Numbers
President Trump will announce his nomination to the Supreme Court to the nation Monday evening. While this will put to rest the rampant speculation about who he will ultimately select, it will set off a furious campaign by outside groups to sway so-called red state Democrats to either support or oppose the nominee. The same could be true of two Republican senators, as well.
