In the first quarter of 2019, Rep. Chris Collins (R-N.Y.) received $0 in campaign contributions from individuals for his re-election, according to a filing with the Federal Elections Commission.

The backdrop: Collins was charged in 2018 with 11 counts of securities fraud, wire fraud and providing false testimony to investigators. The charges stem from insider trading involving an Australian drug company. In total, he has only been able to raise $5,000, which came from the campaign of another New York Republican who failed to secure a seat in last year's election, and 2 PACs. In the 2018 midterm election, Collins fundraised $280,000, reports The Daily Beast, despite his felony charges, and won a fourth term..

President Trump's final debate performance exceeded Americans' expectations, but it wasn't enough to shift the dynamics that left him trailing Joe Biden across most measures, according to a new Axios-SurveyMonkey poll.

What they're saying: "Liar" was the word used most by debate watchers to describe Trump's performance, followed by "lies," "strong," "presidential" and "childish." "Presidential" was the word used most to describe Biden's performance, followed by "liar," "weak," "expected" and "honest."

The mainstream media turned away. But online, President Trump's charges about Hunter Biden were by far the dominant storyline about the final presidential debate, according to exclusive NewsWhip data provided to Axios.

  • Coverage of business dealings by Joe Biden's son — and pre-debate allegations by one of his former business associates, Tony Bobulinski — garnered more than twice as much online activity (likes, comments, shares) as the runner-up.

From high levels of obesity and opioid addiction to inequities in access to care, America's pre-existing conditions make the country an easy target for COVID-19, as well as future pandemics that could cripple the United States for decades to come.

Why it matters: One of the best ways the country could prepare for future threats — and boost its economy — is to improve Americans' overall health.
