2. Greg Koger at Mischiefs of Faction on money for access.

3. Here at View, Timothy L. O'Brien on Trump as manager.

4. Abby Rapoport at the American Prospect on ideological and partisan battles between states and cities.

5. Philip Bump at the Fix goes through the reasons not to believe there’s a “hidden” Trump vote.

6. And the Wall Street Journal asked former White House economists about Trump and Hillary Clinton. None of them is claiming to support Trump. No, this isn’t normal.
