David Waldman takes us through our 30th day of recovery and into the weekend:

Meet Foster Campbell, Democrats’ last hope to flip a 2016 Senate seat, and carrying a populist message for 4 decades.

Meet Wilbur Ross, who once bailed out Trump in Atlantic City and is now his pick for Commerce secretary.

Meet Donald Trump, enemy of all that the Tea Party told you they hold dear. Trump may not accept money from whichever job he’s moonlighting at, although it does look like he might really need the cash. His donors try to help him out in any way they can. Who cares about Donald Trump? Not many it seems. Here’s what happened to a private citizen he found caring too much.  

Josie Duffy Rice brings us a Brennan Center report asking How many Americans are unnecessarily incarcerated? The prison population is declining, but so slowly that it will take 70 years to get back to where it was 20 years ago. Keep an eye out for Josie’s own piece on the topic, coming soon!

And, some other reading & info for the weekend:

20 points to remember for the next 30 days and beyond.

Meet the villians of Trump’s D.C. and New York Lairs
