The Second Republican Debate

September 27, 2023: The second Republican debate took place on Wednesday night in the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in California. Candidates took the opportunity to once again assault each other and former President Trump, while also going after the Biden administration for failures at the border and a weak economy. The result was a bizarre display of American politics, in which, at one point, nearly every candidate on stage was talking over each other at once, and the nation watched, baffled and confused.

Notable events included Nikki Haley voicing the field's perceived frustration with her opponent, Vivek Ramaswamy. His young age and background put him at odds with all of the GOP candidates, making him a major target, likely due to his performance in the last debate. In this second round, he took a calmer approach and avoided confrontation when possible. This did not keep him safe, however, with a major point in the night being several candidates pointing out his shady business dealings with the same companies Hunter Biden has dealt with. Tim Scott also argued with Nikki Haley over $50,000 of curtains she purchased during her time at the UN.

Ron DeSantis and Chris Christie went after Trump for his absence from the stage, with Chris Christie calling him “Donald Duck” and claiming “he hides behind his golf clubs” instead of coming to debate. Ron DeSantis had another quiet night. Nothing of serious note came from Mike Pence, who had a calmer approach this time.

Much like in the first debate, there were many interruptions, cross-talks, and accusations from all the candidates. Notable absences were discussions about abortion, and most of the candidates (with the exception of Nikki Haley) were not discussing health care. Following the second round of debates, Trump’s position in the polls continues to dominate, with no other candidate able to gain any real traction. His absence seems to be keeping his numbers high while his competitors fight for positions beneath him.

Democrats Call on Menendez to Resign

September 28, 2023: Democrats have begun calls to oust one of their own from office for charges of bribery. Bob Menendez has vowed to remain in the Senate after notable Democrats such as Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, John Fetterman, and many others have all asked him to resign. Bernie Sanders, who is an independent, also called for Menendez to step down.

Senator Menendez pleaded not guilty to charges of bribery and corruption earlier on Wednesday. While Democrats are avoiding statements that speak to the guilt of the senator, they believe his resignation would help the public’s faith in the system.

Chuck Schumer has expressed his disappointment, saying that “for senators, there's a much, much higher standard, and clearly, when you read the indictment, Senator Menendez fell way below that standard."

Sen. Menendez has not given any indication of resigning, despite the mounting pressure from his colleagues. Experts suggest that prosecutors likely have a strong case. This story is ongoing.
