3/ Republicans Starting To Turn From Trump?
The unexpected firing of James Comey is only accelerating the divide between moderate republicans and their more conservative counterparts. Senators who can’t rely on a gerrymandered district to help them hold power face more moderate constituencies.
This month, Republicans rejected many of the administration’s priorities in a short-term spending measure, including money for a wall along the border with Mexico.
Senator Shelley Moore Capito, Republican of West Virginia, which has had large numbers of opioid deaths, issued a news release calling on the administration to “propose a realistic budget that demonstrates the administration’s commitment to combating drug addiction.” If it does not, she warned in a letter to Mick Mulvaney, the White House budget director, “I will lead a bipartisan group of my colleagues on the Appropriations Committee and in the Senate to reject those proposed cuts.”

4/ Trump Mulls West Wing Shakeup
