Welcome to another edition of Ringside Politics with Jeff Crouere

Today’s Hot Topics:

1) The U.S. Navy dispatched the aircraft carrier Abraham Lincoln and two other ships to the Florida Keys to help with search-and-rescue operations after Hurricane Irma slammed the region. Gov. Rick Scott, R-Fla., said, “I just hope everyone survived,” after a flyover of the hurricane-battered Keys yielded what the governor said were scenes of devastation

2) Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Democrats were too hasty in celebrating the shock spending deal they made with President Donald Trump last week, saying it is not as good as they believe. The deal is not quite as good as my counterpart thought it was, the Senator from Kentucky told the New York Times’ ‘The New Washington’ podcast, explaining that the battle for the debt limit increase will be delayed well beyond the initially agreed December deadline.

3) A group pushing tax reform to benefit the middle class has launched a $2.5 million TV ad campaign targeting 23 congressional districts nationwide. The ad, “Too Complicated,” from the American Action Network’s Middle-Class Growth Initiative, spotlights a Wisconsin small-business owner and his working family. It argues that the current U.S. tax code burdens the nation’s small businesses.

4) One thing is clear after his “60 Minutes” interview: Steve Bannon is a newsmaking machine. Nearly a dozen major headlines emerged from his sitdown with Charlie Rose, which was not just the first TV interview since Bannon resigned as President Trump’s chief strategist, but his first TV interview ever. So it’s not sheer hype when Breitbart plays up the comments of its executive chairman in a lead story headlined “25 Key Quotes From Steve Bannon’s 60 Minutes Interview.”
