22 Republican members of Congress are the target of a new ad campaign from a progressive group that is launching a different ad for every Republican. Not One Penny is spending more than $1 million on the ad blitz.

Why it matters: This is the first time the group has launched a targeted ad campaign against this many Republicans, which suggests how seriously some progressives are reacting to the news of the GOP tax plan moving forward. And it's a last-ditch effort to stop Republicans from giving it a final “yes” vote when the plan goes to Committee.

Why now: Senate Republicans just voted to push the GOP tax plan forward, and a spokesperson for Not One Penny previously told Axios that the group "will hold Members of Congress accountable who want to give tax breaks to give tax breaks to millionaires, billionaires, or wealthy corporations; Democrat or Republican."

Not One Penny previously launched a similar ad campaign against eight Republicans in August (their first major effort to oppose the tax plan) and in September they targeted Rep. Tim Ryan, a Democrat, for his stance on tax reform.

Some of the Republicans targeted include Barbara Comstock (R-VA), Ed Royce (R-CA), Mimi Walters (R-CA), Ryan Costello (R-PA) and Will Hurd (R-TX).

The silver linings of online school

Online learning can be frustrating for students, teachers and parents, but some methods are working.

The big picture: Just as companies are using this era of telework to try new things, some principals, teachers and education startups are treating remote learning as a period of experimentation, too.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Hillary Clinton both are slated to speak on the Wednesday of the Democratic convention — Aug. 19 — four sources familiar with the planning told Axios.

Why it matters: That's the same night Joe Biden's running mate (to be revealed next week) will address the nation. Clinton and Warren represent two of the most influential wise-women of Democratic politics with the potential to turn out millions of establishment and progressive voters in November.
