Kellyanne Conway announced Sunday night she's stepping down from her position as counselor to President Trump "Gratefully & Humbly" to spend more time with her family at the end of the month.

The big picture: Conway's resignation, which she stressed was "completely my choice," comes ahead of this week's Republican National Convention, where Trump is set to formally accept his party's nomination to run for a second term. Conway is due to speak at the convention on Wednesday.

Of note: Her attorney husband and vocal Trump critic George Conway tweeted he would be withdrawing from the anti-Trump Republican group the Lincoln Project and announcing he'd be taking a Twitter hiatus "to devote more time to family matters."

  • "Needless to say, I continue to support the Lincoln Project and its mission," he added. Passionately."

On Night 4 of the Republican National Convention, President Trump will deliver a wildly different speech than the one Joe Biden gave last week.

What to watch: Trump will offer a blistering rebuke of Biden’s record and his decades as "a failed" elected official in a closing address that will declare November as a battle between “us vs. them,” campaign officials tell Axios.

Joe Biden is calling for the winner of November's presidential election to select Ruth Bader Ginsburg's replacement on the Supreme Court.

What he's saying: "[L]et me be clear: The voters should pick the president and the president should pick the justice for the Senate to consider," Biden said. "This was the position the Republican Senate took in 2016 when there were almost 10 months to go before the election. That's the position the United States Senate must take today, and the election's only 46 days off.

President Trump will move within days to nominate his third Supreme Court justice in just three-plus short years — and shape the court for literally decades to come, top Republican sources tell Axios.

Driving the news: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans are ready to move to confirm Trump's nominee before Election Day, just 46 days away, setting up one of the most consequential periods of our lifetimes, the sources say.
