Biden Jr. said at a fund-raiser in New York on Monday night that he had already amassed 360,000 donors with an average contribution of $55 — a disclosure that appeared to reveal he has raised $19.8 million for his presidential bid.

Advertisement Supported by White House Memo ByPeter Baker June 17, 2019 WASHINGTON — As he rode down that escalator in June 2015, it felt like a lark, a curiosity, just another staged television spectacle. At most, many assumed that Donald J. Trump’s candidacy would be a sideshow, sure to be entertaining but hardly decisive. Four years later, as President Trump kicks off his campaign for a second term on Tuesday with an eardrum-pounding, packed-to-the-rafters rally in Florida, no one doubts that he is the dominant force in the arena today, the one defining the national conversation as no president has done in generations.

Welcome to On Politics , your guide to the day in national politics. I’m Lisa Lerer, your host. As President Trump prepares to officially kick off his re-election campaign in Orlando tomorrow night, his numbers are, as he is fond of saying, “not good, folks.” In a new poll of ruby red Texas, less than 40 percent of voters say they would “definitely” re-elect Mr. Trump.
