Aftab Pureval, the Democrat challenging Rep. Steve Chabot for his U.S. House seat in Ohio's 1st congressional district, has raised $660,000 in the eight weeks since announcing his candidacy. Pureval, a first-generation American and lawyer-turned-politician, was elected in 2016 as the Clerk of Courts in Ohio's Hamilton County — the first Democrat elected to that position in 100 years in the district.

Why it matters: Pureval's team said that these fundraising totals are more than any Democratic challenger has raised in a single quarter against Chabot, who has held the seat since it was redistricted in 2010. Most importantly, the numbers show nearly 80% of the money is coming from voters in and around the district, suggesting enthusiasm from Pureval's constituents. Well-funded Democrats, like Paul Ryan challenger Randy Bryce and Georgia's Jon Ossoff, often see the bulk of their cash come from big blue states like New York and California.

Joe Biden's campaign released a three-part plan Tuesday to rebuild U.S. supply chains in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, and it's centered around the idea that the country is more vulnerable to global disruptions in spite of President Trump's "America First" rhetoric.

Why it matters: Biden is proposing a way to make sure the U.S. doesn't rely on other countries for personal protective equipment (PPE) and other related medical supplies. That's another way of acknowledging that we're not getting over this health crisis anytime soon.

Nationwide Black Lives Matter protests sparked by George Floyd's killing have put new pressure on states and cities to scale back the force that officers can use on civilians.

Why it matters: Police reforms of this scale have not taken place in response to the Black Lives Matter movement since its inception in 2013, after George Zimmerman's acquittal for shooting Trayvon Martin, an unarmed Black teenager.
