New Age guru Deepak Chopra engaged physicist Lawrence Krauss in a bizarre conversation after Krauss tweeted a photograph of himself with Richard Dawkins at Origins Project Dialogue conference in Dublin last week.

Published

Although Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina is seeking reelection in a deep red state — much redder than neighboring North Carolina, which has evolved into a swing state — polls on South Carolina’s 2020 U.S. Senate race have been surprisingly close. Morning Consult, in a recent poll, found Graham leading his Democratic challenger, Jaime Harrison, by only 1%. But Morning Consult’s Eli Yokley is reporting that Republican strategists believe another Supreme Court battle could help the veteran senator win reelection.
