The Cook Political Report just shifted eight more House races to favor Democrats.

Why it matters: There are now 15 GOP-held seats rated as "lean" or "likely" Democratic, which includes seven Republican incumbents. Three of the races are districts Hillary Clinton won in 2016. As Cook's Dave Wasserman writes: "It's becoming harder and harder to see Republicans' path to holding the majority."

The eight races, per Cook Political Report:

  1. FL-26: Carlos Curbelo (R) - Lean R to toss up  
  2. KS-03: Kevin Yoder (R) - Toss up to lean D  
  3. MI-03: Justin Amash (R) - Solid R to likely R 
  4. MI-11: OPEN (Trott)(R) - Toss up to lean D  
  5. NY-21: Elise Stefanik (R) - Solid R to likely R  
  6. NY-24: John Katko (R) - Likely R to lean R  
  7. PA-17: Keith Rothfus (R) - Lean D to likely D  
  8. UT-04: Mia Love (R) - Lean R to toss up

Primary elections are being held on Tuesday in Minnesota, Georgia, Connecticut, Vermont and Wisconsin.

The big picture: Georgia and Wisconsin both struggled to hold primaries during the coronavirus pandemic, but are doing so again — testing their voting systems ahead of the general election. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) is facing a strong challenger as she fights for her political career. In Georgia, a Republican primary runoff pits a QAnon supporter against a hardline conservative.

The U.S. government has agreed to buy 100 million doses of Moderna's experimental coronavirus vaccine for $1.5 billion, or $15 per dose.

Why it matters: The Trump administration, through Operation Warp Speed, has now bought initial batches of vaccines from Moderna, GlaxoSmithKline and Sanofi, Pfizer, Novavax, Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca before knowing whether they are safe and effective. The federal government also appears to own some of the patent rights associated with Moderna's vaccine.
