ADDITIONAL ELECTION NEWS:
2. Democrats hope for tidal moment in Georgia with two Senate seats in play
THE HILL reports: Republicans are scrambling to defend both of their Senate seats in Georgia as signs of trouble pile up for President Trump in the state.
Two GOP outside groups are preparing to pour tens of millions of dollars into television advertising in Georgia this week to bolster Sen. David Perdue’s (R-Ga.) reelection bid against Jon Ossoff, an investigative journalist and former House candidate who won the state’s Democratic Senate primary last month.
Meanwhile, Georgia’s junior senator, Kelly Loeffler (R), is leaning into a dispute over the Black Lives Matter movement with the WNBA team she co-owns as she looks to bolster her conservative credentials ahead of November, where she will face both Republicans and Democrats on a jungle primary-style general election ballot.
3. FEC Complaint Alleges Hickenlooper Violated Campaign Finance Laws
The Free Beacon reports: Former Colorado governor John Hickenlooper (D.) may have violated campaign finance laws by coordinating an advertisement with an outside super PAC backing his Senate campaign, according to a complaint filed with the Federal Election Commission.
According to the FEC complaint, filed by the conservative watchdog group Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT), Hickenlooper posted a statement on one of his campaign websites that was picked up days later in a similarly worded advertisement by the Senate Majority PAC, a committee tied to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.).
“The facts demonstrate there was coordination between Hickenlooper’s campaign and Senate Majority PAC. Hickenlooper posted a ‘request or suggestion’ ask using language we have seen several times in the past,” said Kendra Arnold, executive director of FACT. “The fact that 12 days after the ask was published Senate Majority PAC ran the advertisement leads me to believe there was coordination between the campaign and super PAC.”
As if Coloradans needed another reason to not trust @Hickenlooper, the scandal-ridden former Governor has now been accused of violating campaign finance laws. Seriously Hick? Again? #COSen #copolitics https://t.co/npZTJPv1os

4. State election officials warn budget cuts could lead to November chaos
THE HILL reports: Multiple states are facing dire budget shortfalls as November’s general election approaches due to the coronavirus pandemic, signaling that local governments could have a real problem holding elections while the disease lingers in the country.
Experts at NYU’s Brennan Center for Justice have estimated that states need an additional $4 billion to adequately prepare for this election cycle, but the CARES Act only allotted $400 million nationwide for COVID-19 related election expenses.
States need money for increased mail-in voting, educational materials for voters, protective equipment to make in-person voting at the polls as safe as possible and more, according to the university’s experts.
