Last question to @JoeBiden is whether he’s been tested for cognitive decline given his age (77). “I’ve been tested and I’m constantly tested...I can hardly wait to compare my cognitive capability to the cognitive capability of the guy I’m running against,” he says.

.@JoeBiden also tells @edokeefe he won’t release a list of the Black women he is considering for Supreme Court until they are further along in the vetting process. VP announcement timeline? Early August, he says.

.@edokeefe asks @JoeBiden what he would do or say to Putin re: bounties on American soldiers. Biden talks about going to the UN Security Council or sanctions. Says he had “blunt” conversations with Putin as VP.

On @Princeton changing the name of the Woodrow Wilson School, @JoeBiden says that’s up to individual institutions. He said he draws a distinction between people like Washington who owned slaves and people who fought for the confederacy. Confederate statues “belong in museums.”

.@JoeBiden says his campaign has told him 200 million people have viewed the virtual content he has put out while staying at home during the pandemic. Looking for the @BoKnowsNews take on that claim...

On the Russia bounties, @JoeBiden says, “both parties should demand the facts.” And then, seemingly swiping back at Trump - who has questioned Biden’s own mental faculties - says, “He doesn’t seem to be cognitively aware of what’s going on.”

The idea that the president didn’t know about the bounties is “a dereliction of duty,” he says. https://t.co/Ts1I65iYc3

.@JoeBiden is in Wilmington, DE today talking about his plan to fight COVID-19 including doubling drive-through testing sites and hiring 100,000 contact tracers. He’s also laying hard into the message to wear a mask, saying people need to do it to protect others.

Biden mocking Trump for calling himself a 'war time president' w/pandemic: It's almost July and it seems like our wartime president has surrendered, waving the white flag on the battlefield

.@CBSNews projects that Amy McGrath will defeat Charles Booker in the Democratic primary for Kentucky Senate. She'll face @senatemajldr in the fall.

A source in the room at the House Dems' briefing at the White House today on the Russian bounties told @edokeefe, "too much time was spent sort of haggling over timeframes with NYT reporting, as opposed to the actual potential threat that exists to our US forces in Afghanistan."

We asked voters: How many people have died from the coronavirus in the United States? See the responses from the latest CBS News polling >> https://t.co/ndtz5tf6ZU

To accompany today’s ⁦SCOTUS decision striking down a Louisiana abortion restriction here’s the latest ⁦@CBSNews⁩ polling on the issue. Two thirds of Americans want Roe v. Wade kept in place. Some of that 2/3 say there should be stricter limits —> https://t.co/kY0Lso3IYs

For the first time, the House has voted 232-180 in favor of DC statehood - the first time the chamber has touched the issue on the floor since 1993 (that time it failed, 153-277). The bill is not expected to get consideration in the Senate.

Quoted @weijia

“In that really primal desire to get a rise out of the crowd and get that affirmation he wants, he went to this place that has such bad consequences for Asian Americans broadly and for Asian American kids in particular. It’s a joke to him but not to us.” https://t.co/XDy3dUCVVq

Asked @senatemajldr if GOP could lead on race&policing w/o condemning racist language from @realDonaldTrump. “Every week, you all try to get me into a running commentary on the President’s comments about a variety of different things. I really don’t have anything to add on that.” https://t.co/1aovib4a6u

If @surajpatelnyc beats 14-term incumbent @RepMaloney in NY-12 — certainly possible — thats potentially two powerful House committee chairs (who were two of @SpeakerPelosi’s top lieutenants during the impeachment fight) gone in one fell swoop.

NY-16 has yet to be called (mail-in ballots are still being counted) but ⁦@JamaalBowmanNY⁩ is declaring victory over 16-term incumbent ⁦@RepEliotEngel⁩, who chairs ⁦@HouseForeign⁩ —> https://t.co/iSC2wq59O2
