The motorcade carrying the body of the Rev. Billy Graham to Charlotte's Billy Graham Library rolled through the shopping district in Black Mountain, N.C. yesterday, where Graham often shopped or caught trains.

The procession is part of more than a week of mourning that culminates with his burial Friday at his library in Charlotte.

  • Graham will "lie in honor" in the Capitol Rotunda on Wednesday and Thursday, March 1, the Speaker's office announced.
  • Upon the arrival of the casket, Speaker Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will take part in a bicameral service.

Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions has lost the Republican nomination for Senate to Tommy Tuberville in Alabama in Tuesday night’s primary runoff, AP reports.

Why it matters: Sessions had been the underdog in the race against former Auburn University head football coach Tommy Tuberville, who had the backing of President Trump. Tuberville will now face off against Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.) in November, who is considered to have one of the most vulnerable Democratic Senate seats in the country.

Wells Fargo swung to its first loss since the financial crisis — while JPMorgan Chase and Citigroup reported significantly lower profits from a year earlier — as the banks set aside billions of dollars more in the second quarter for loans that may go bad.

Why it matters: The cumulative $28 billion in loan loss provisions that banks have so far announced they’re reserving serves as a signal they’re preparing for a colossal wave of loan defaults as the economy slogs through a coronavirus-driven downturn.
