A Marion County judge ordered Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb's office to turn over emails between then-Gov. Mike Pence and President-elect Donald Trump regarding the retaining of jobs in Indianapolis after an announced move to Mexico by Carrier Corp, per the Indianapolis Star.

The details: After the 2016 election, Trump and Pence negotiated a huge tax incentive for Carrier to keep the plant open for 10 years and employ 1,100 workers at the Indianapolis plant. In the ruling, the court gave Holcomb 30 days to hand over the documents to the Citizens Action Coalition of Indiana, which filed for the Carrier documents in December 2016.

Pro-Trump super PAC America First Action is preparing to unleash a series of targeted, swing-state attacks on the Democrats most likely to face President Trump after Super Tuesday, people familiar with the group's plans tell me in an exclusive preview of its strategy.

The state of play: The group has been tracking favorable/unfavorable ratings in Florida, Georgia, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio and Pennsylvania for 2020 candidates Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg and Michael Bloomberg — under the theory that if Trump wins each of these six states he would win re-election.
