There are 200 military veterans running for Congress in the midterm elections, according to With Honor, a non-partisan super PAC. All but one of the women endorsed by the group are Democrats.

Why it matters: This is another 2018 trend that could change the face of Congress. Less than 20% of lawmakers have served in the military and less than 20% of House members are women.

The backdrop: An estimated 400 veterans ran for the House of Representatives this year, which could be twice as many as past cycles, With Honor co-founder and CEO Rye Barcott told The Atlantic.

  • The group has raised $20 million (of their $30 million goal) to support their candidates this cycle, per The Atlantic. $10 million of that came from Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.
  • With Honor has endorsed 34 military vets running for office this cycle, including 18 Democrats and 16 Republicans.
  • The female veterans endorsed by the group include Amy McGrath in Kentucky, Chrissy Houlahan in Pennsylvania, Mikie Sherrill in New Jersey, Gina Ortiz Jones in Texas, Elaine Luria in Virginia, Lynne Blankenbeker (R) in New Hampshire, and MJ Hegar in Texas.

Trump tightens screws on ByteDance to sell Tiktok

President Trump added more pressure Friday night on China-based TikTok parent ByteDance to exit the U.S., ordering it to divest all assets related to the U.S. operation of TikTok within 90 days.

Between the lines: The order means ByteDance must be wholly disentangled from TikTok in the U.S. by November. Trump had previously ordered TikTok banned if ByteDance hadn't struck a deal within 45 days. The new order likely means ByteDance has just another 45 days after that to fully close the deal, one White House source told Axios.

In her first sit-down interview since being named Joe Biden's running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris talked about what she'll do to fight for women if elected VP, and how the Democrats are thinking about voter turnout strategies ahead of November.

What they're saying: "In a Biden-Harris administration women are going to be a priority, understanding that women have many priorities and all of them must be acknowledged," Harris told The 19th*'s Errin Haines-Whack.
