11 Tight Governor's Races Will Shape America's Political Landscape
Ed Kilgore, New York Magazine
Kilgore writes: "The pre-midterm obsession with trends in close House and Senate races is so powerful at the moment that elementary school kids in metro Washington can probably cite Beto O'Rourke's quarterly fund-raising haul or the latest polls from California's 48th district."

The Historic Danger of Proud Boys
Rebecca Onion, Slate
Onion writes: "Last weekend, the fancy Metropolitan Republican Club, on Manhattan's Upper East Side, hosted the Proud Boys' Gavin McInnes. The ex-founder of Vice magazine, failed stand-up comic, and current leader of an alt-right 'Western chauvinist' group gave what was, according to a witness, a bizarre and disjointed speech."

Cole writes: "Trump said Friday that he finds 'credible' the bald-faced and ridiculous lies the Saudi government came up with to explain the death of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi. He thereby signaled his intention of sweeping the affair under the table for the sake of Saudi arms sales."

OIL & GAS PIPELINES




Animated map of the major oil and gas pipelines in the US





The United States is the world's largest consumer of oil, using over 19 million barrels a day in 2014. This high level of consumption wouldn't be possible without the 2.5 million mile network of pipeline used to transport the fuel from its source to the market. -------------------------------------------------- Follow BI Video on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1oS68Zs Follow BI Video On Facebook: http://on.fb.me/1bkB8qg Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.

Pipeline Nation: America’s Broken Industry







A pipeline network more than 2.5 million miles long transports oil and natural gas throughout the United States — but a top official in the federal government's pipeline safety oversight agency admits that the regulatory process is overstretched and "kind of dying." A recent spike in the number of spills illustrates the problem: the Department of Transportation recorded 73 pipeline-related accidents in 2014, an 87 percent increase over 2009. Despite calls for stricter regulations over the last few years, the rules governing the infrastructure have largely remained the same. Critics say that this is because of the oil industry's cozy relationship with regulators, and argue that violations for penalties are too low to compel compliance. VICE News traveled to Glendive, Montana, to visit the site of a pipeline spill that dumped more than 50,000 gallons of oil into the Yellowstone River, to find out why the industry has such weak regulatory oversight.

You have to see our latest ad ... it's on in West Virginia




VoteVets


This one is in West Virginia where we can elect a progressive veteran and pick up a House seat. It’s one those races where if we can win, we will flip the House. And it’s a close one.

And this ad is powerful. It attacks Republican Carol Miller for profiting off the opioid crisis that is ravaging West Virginia.

It starts like this: “The IED went off, and just like that, my war was over. For my pain, they gave me a Purple Heart and a bottle of Oxycontin…”
