- Julian Castro bought ad space for Fox News specifically in Bedminster, New Jersey, where President Trump has spent the week vacationing. In the ad, Castro says Trump is complicit in the deaths of those killed in the El Paso mass shooting. [Axios]
- People convicted of low-level marijuana charges in Manhattan will now have their records sealed. [Wall Street Journal]
- Looks like another board member of the National Rifle Association called it quits! [NY Post]
