Ben Jealous is the Democrat candidate for Governor of Maryland.

He was doing so well. Just five seconds more and everything would have been fine.

One for the 'Only in America' file.

Joe Ganim spent seven years in prison for shaking down contractors for years while Mayor of Bridgeport, Connecticut's biggest city. What happened when he came out? They made him Mayor again. Now he is standing for Governor of Connecticut.


1991-2003 - Mayor of Bridgeport, elected five times.

2003 - Convicted on 16 federal counts - racketeering, extortion, racketeering conspiracy, bribery, two counts of bribery conspiracy, eight counts of mail fraud, two counts of filing a false tax return.  Sentenced to nine years in prison and fined $475k in fines and restitution. The judge said he had lied to the jury. Resigned from office and lost his licence to practice law.

2010 - Released from jail on licence. He boasted in a radio interview that he had gamed the system by participating in a drug-treatment programme, which gave him a year's reduction, despite not being a drug-user.

2010-2015 - Worked at his family's law firm Ganim, Ganim & Ganim and started a consulting firm giving advice to white-collar convicts on how to survive prison.

2015 - Made a public apology and stood again for Mayor of Bridgeport. Somehow he got the support of not just the police union, but one of the FBI agents who had convicted him. He deposed the incumbent and was elected Mayor for a sixth time in a landslide. Gave the ex-FBI guy a job as a senior advisor.

2018 - Candidate for Governor of Connecticut. Ran into another slight legal problem on Day 1 of the campaign on the way home from filing his campaign papers.

Meet the Democratic Party's candidate for Governor of Vermont, Christine Hallquist.

Christine has resigned from her position at Vermont Electric Cooperative, where she was CEO for the last twelve years, to concentrate on the election.

One other thing - until December 2015, Christine was known as David Hallquist.

Thanks.

We are approaching the most critical mid-terms ever. They can often take away a President's ability to get legislation through, but this time they may well decide whether the President survives his term. Despite his excesses, there was never going to be a serious move against Trump until these elections were done. With Republicans in the majority, tackling Trump would need their support, and there is too much of a risk of alienating their electorate.

Once the elections are over, the risks for Trump suddenly become huge. Each scandal is making Democrat majorities more likely, which is why Giuliani is constantly calling for Mueller to wrap up soon. He wants the fallout to be dealt with by a Republican-majority House. If the investigation carries on til after the start of November, as seems likely, Democrats could be calling the shots and the game might be up.

The coast won't be clear even if the Republicans hold on, though. Republicans who have looked the other way are likely to find their principles and their voices. We have already heard the first murmurings from them today that the investigation 'should be allowed to run its course', which is code for ultimately withdrawing support from the President if it is damning. Nixon held on until Republicans deserted him, and then he had to go - the same probably applies to Donald.

Having said all that, though, neither party's leadership wants impeachment. No matter who wins the mid-terms, unless Mueller comes up with something more dramatic, the President will probably see out his term.
