$1 billion worth of cocaine seized at Philadelphia port

U.S. authorities have seized over $1 billion worth of cocaine — that's 16.5 tons — from a ship at a Philadelphia port Tuesday, according to the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.

Why it matters: There have been a number of recent, sizable cocaine catches along the East Coast. According to a tweet from the U.S. Attorney's office, this was "the largest drug seizure in the history of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania."

New polling by Firehouse Strategies and 0ptimus finds that in three critical 2020 states, Ivanka Trump has a higher net favorability among likely general election voters than her father does.

Why it matters: Ivanka, a presidential adviser who'll be in Charlotte on Tuesday to co-chair the second American Workforce Policy Advisory Board meeting, can be a surrogate in tough states.
