A Democratic hybrid PAC called Red to Blue California, which focuses on flipping House seats in California, is launching a six-figure ad campaign in 10 districts with the goal of reaching 1 million voters before Election Day.

Why it matters: Democrats' path to taking back the House will be a lot easier if they win California. All 10 of these targeted districts are either open seats or held by a Republican, and they only need 23 to win the House.

The group is launching a 10-second digital ad and direct mail — that says "Vote for Democrats to stop the reckless, hate-fueled Trump agenda" — in the following districts:

  • CA-04, CA-10, CA-21, CA-22, CA-25, CA-39, CA-45, CA-48, CA-49, CA-50

They're trying to flip these seats from red to blue by specifically focusing on low-frequency voters, who typically don't vote in midterm elections but who Democrats are depending on to win the 2018 election.

Digging into Trump's taxes

President Trump paid no federal income tax in 10 of the past 15 years, and just $750 in 2016 and 2017, according to a new report from the New York Times. He also is reported to have hundreds of millions of dollars in outstanding debts, most of which would come due during a second term.

Axios Re:Cap focuses on what is and isn't surprising about the revelations, plus how real estate developers are taxed, with Francine McKenna, an independent financial journalist and certified public accountant.

Pennsylvania GOP asks Supreme Court to halt mail-in ballot extension

Republicans in Pennsylvania on Monday asked the U.S. Supreme Court to halt a major state court ruling that extended the deadlines for mail-in ballots to several days after the election, The Morning Call reports.

Why it matters: It's the first election-related test for the Supreme Court since the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and could decide the fate of thousands of ballots in a crucial swing state that President Trump won in 2016. What the court decides could signal how it would deal with similar election-related litigation in other states.
