New Lincoln Project ad imagines a world where children still look up to the president

Published

President Donald Trump responds to a question about Jussie Smollett (Screen cap).

A new ad from the Lincoln Project tries to get Americans to remember what it’s like when children could look to the president of the United States as a role model.

The ad features a mother and her son talking about a homework assignment where the son is struggling to write about what he wants to be when he grows up.

His mother suggests he could write about wanting to be a good and moral person, although he replies that no one gets paid to be a good person.

She replies that he should write about being president because being president means that “you would have to be a good person.”

The ad then cuts to an image of Democratic nominee Joe Biden and tells viewers that, “It’s time for decency.”

Published

A letter addressed to Georgia's Chatham County Board of Elections challenged the qualifications of Republican District 2 Commission candidate Larry “Gator” Rivers, saying that he should be held to the same standards as his now-disqualified Democratic opponent, Tony Riley.

In the letter, Chatham County Democratic Party Chairman and District 6 County Commissioner Jay Jones wonder why the GOP waited so late in the election cycle to challenge the qualifications of Riley, the Savannah Morning News reports.
