HATE… Details are still emerging in the mass shooting at a prominent synagogue in Pittsburgh during a service on Saturday morning when at least 11 people were killed -- including a 97-year-old woman, siblings, and a husband and wife. WHITES DON’T KILL WHITES… That’s what a 51-year-old man said moments after allegedly killing two Black people at a Kentucky Kroger grocery store last week. He unsuccessfully tried to enter a predominantly Black church nearby minutes before the fatal shooting. PIPE BOMB ARRESTSuspect Cesar Sayoc Jr. -- an ardent Donald Trump supporter with a lengthy criminal record and a social media trail of furious posts about immigrants, the news media, and Democrats -- was arrested on Friday. ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE… The self-proclaimed nationalist president will hold 11 rallies in six days leading up to the November 6th elections -- expect continued partisan attacks. PARTY UNISON… Just one day after a pipe bomb was mailed to George Soros, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) posted, and later deleted, a tweet that suggested three Jewish, billionaire Democratic donors, “Soros, Steyer, and Bloomberg,” were attempting to "buy" the 2018 midterm elections. MASS EXODUS… Very few people expect AG Jeff Sessions to remain in the administration after midterms. However, other Cabinet secretaries may be rushing toward the exit in the weeks after the midterm elections. BASTA… Lawyer and cable news darling Michael Avenatti was quoted in TIME magazine saying that the Democratic presidential nominee who will battle Trump “better be a white male” -- remarks he says were taken out of context. Now, he’s pressing forward, assembling a team of political veterans and building out a digital fundraising apparatus designed to enable his 2020 presidential bid. FROM RUSSIA, WITH LOVE… National Security Advisor John Bolton on Friday said that Russian President Vladimir Putin had been invited to visit DC next year for “basically, a full day of consultations.” He said no date had been set yet. BRAZIL DECIDESJair Bolsonaro -- who has made comments supporting torture and calling for political opponents to be shot as well as comments disparaging women, minorities, and LGBT people -- has been elected as the next president of Brazil. STEPPING DOWNGerman Chancellor Angela Merkel has announced she will not seek to run for re-election as leader of her party. She made clear that she wanted to remain Chancellor, a position she has held since 2005.

Discrimination Complaint Filed Against Henry Cuellar
A former aide to Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-TX) has filed a complaint alleging that she was fired for being pregnant -- a violation of federal law. Kristie Small, who served as Cuellar’s Acting Chief of Staff until earlier this month, told WaPo that she joined Cuellar’s office on June 1st and that once she learned about her pregnancy, emailed him in August about planning for her maternity leave. The Congressman then replied that she was under probation -- Small said Cuellar had never raised concerns about her performance before then. He also gave her new performance markers which he then said she had failed to meet. “I was very confused. I had never been told there was a 90-day probation period. When I asked other staffers, no one else had ever had this type of discussion with him,” she said. “I knew I was doing an excellent job. All of this started happening in response to my maternity-leave email. It’s 100 percent clear to me that had I not been pregnant, I would still be in this job.” Small submitted her request last week to the Office of Compliance, which handles discrimination and harassment complaints in the legislative branch. Cuellar’s office defended Small’s firing last week, but did not address her claims: “The Office of Representative Cuellar considers internal personnel matters confidential and will not comment publicly on Ms. Small’s allegations at this time, except to say that the office values its employees and conducts all personnel matters in compliance with the congressional [sic] Accountability Act and applicable House Rules. All actions taken with respect to Ms. Small’s employment were in compliance with the law and House Rules.” And the founders of Congress Too, which is made up of former congressional staffers committed to addressing discrimination and harassment in Congress, started a fundraising page for Smalls as she navigates the process.

Grace Meng Doesn’t Want Jeff Sessions to Interfere With Any Wilbur Ross 2020 Census Investigation
Congresswoman Grace Meng (D-NY)
is determined to hold Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross accountable for lying to her about the addition of a citizenship question to the 2020 Census. And she wants to make sure that if DOJ investigates him -- as she’s requested -- that AG Jeff Sessions doesn’t cover for Ross. Last week, Meng sent Sessions a letter calling on him to recuse himself from any investigation into Ross’ lies to her during an Appropriations Subcommittee hearing, when he misled her about the White House’s role in the addition of the citizenship question to the Census. “The Secretary must be held accountable for his actions and that is why I called on Attorney General Sessions to investigate,” said Meng. “But statements the Attorney General made last week exposed his bias on the issue and as a result he cannot independently investigate the matter. Therefore, the Attorney General must step aside from any probe that moves forward against Secretary Ross.”
Federal district court Judge Jesse Furman on Friday denied the Trump administration’s request to put a trial -- slated to start next month -- on hold until the Supreme Court considers whether to hear the government’s challenge to Furman’s ruling allowing the challengers to depose Ross and other administration officials. The two cases have been consolidated into one trial brought by 17 states and a coalition of immigrant rights groups. The challengers are seeking the depositions to understand how the decision to add the citizenship question was made and who was involved. They argue the question is unconstitutional and arbitrary. Furman said the government may have its day before the Supreme Court, but that day should not come before the District Court decides the case on the merits. Read Meng's letter here.
Ro Khanna Intros Coretta Scott King Bill to Address Income Inequality
The gap between productivity growth and hourly compensation growth has increased dramatically since 1973 and contributed to worsening income inequality, according to the Economic Policy Institute. As communities of color are the last to see jobs growth during an economic recovery, many argue the Federal Reserve’s moves to slow the economy have contributed to the fact that the Black unemployment rate remains consistently about twice as high as the white rate. In an effort to address the issue, Congressman Ro Khanna (D-CA) on Friday introduced legislation to strengthen the Federal Reserve’s mandate to pursue a robust job and wage growth. Named after the Black woman activist who made full employment a hallmark of her civil rights efforts, the Coretta Scott King Full Employment Federal Reserve Act directs the Fed to target wages that keep pace worker productivity growth and to shrink discrepancies in unemployment due to race, gender, or geography. If enacted, among other things, the bill would require the Fed to issue regular reports on its own prior estimates of future employment and inflation, and on how its monetary policy has affected different demographic groups; consider racial, gender, class, and other forms of diversity in picking the regional bank presidents rather than its current overwhelmingly white, male, and financial sector-dominated leadership; and seek a job market where job seekers can find employment and minimize involuntary part-time employment. “Despite the progress made by Coretta Scott King’s campaign four decades ago, the Fed is still not adequately focused on the broad-based job creation and wage growth that our workers need to fully recover from the Great Recession,” Khanna said. “This legislation will help ensure that our nation’s central bankers are putting the livelihoods of American working families ahead of the Wall Street voices that are often in their ears.” More here.

Did Your Squad Vote? Michelle Obama Wants to Know
Michelle Obama
on Friday rolled out the #VotingSquad campaign for When We All Vote -- her nonpartisan, nonprofit organization. The #VotingSquad campaign is a digital movement aimed for individual voters to remind at least five people from family to friends to get out and vote by either voting early, by absentee, by mail, or at the polls for the 2018 midterm election. "I’m challenging everyone across the country to start a #VotingSquad to get your friends and family ready to vote," Obama tweeted Friday. “Build your squad & then tag 5 others to do the same!" In the accompanying campaign video, FLOTUS44 said, “I learned a little secret. You are the best messengers to get out the vote. You know who's too busy or too forgetful or who might flake out on Election Day.” She then challenged fellow When We All Vote co-chairs Tom Hanks, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Janelle Monáe, Chris Paul, Faith Hill, and Tim McGraw to create their digital campaign ad in joining the call-to-action. According to the United States Election Project, voter turnout in midterm elections hasn't cracked 50% since 1942 and hasn't even reached 45% since 1974. But that may be changing this go round. According to the Pew Research Center, eligible voters saying they're more enthusiastic about voting this cycle than in previous cycles is at a 12-year high. Voter enthusiasm is relatively high among voters in both parties, but it is somewhat higher among voters who favor the Democrats. Overall, 61% of all registered voters say they are more enthusiastic about voting than in past congressional elections, higher than at any point during midterms in the past two decades. A record share of registered voters -- 72% -- say the issue of which party controls Congress will be a factor in their vote. See Michelle Obama’s video here.
Michelle Luján Grisham Leads Gubernatorial Opponent in the Polls
Congressional Hispanic Caucus Chair Congresswoman Michelle Luján Grisham (D-NM) squared off with her Republican opponent, Congressman Steve Pearce, last week in their bid to become New Mexico’s next Governor. Luján Grisham accused Pearce of hiding his oil field business interests by describing them as a company that rents party equipment. She also alleged that he had used his position as a member of the House Natural Resources Committee to enrich himself by supporting less regulation of the oil and gas industry. Pearce shot back that she was “misstating the facts all the way through.” He said he did have a party-equipment rental business at one point. A recent poll showed that 48% of voters said they will vote for Luján Grisham while 39% of voters said they'll vote for Pearce. Meanwhile, 13% of voters said they were still “undecided.” Of those voters, 55% said they'd pick Luján Grisham if the election were held today, while 45% of the undecided voters said they’d pick Pearce. Outgoing Republican Governor Susana Martínez has reached her term limit. Statewide, there are 1,261,458 people registered to vote. As of Tuesday afternoon, 64,946 Democrats had voted early-- that's compared to only 39,563 Republicans. Latinos make up nearly half the state’s population while Native Americans comprise 11%. Asian Americans and African Americans each comprise 2% respectively. More here.

Rubén Gallego Weighs 2020 Senate Run
Congressman Rubén Gallego (D-AZ) is seriously considering a run for Senate in 2020. A special election will be held for the final two years of the late John McCain’s term, and he’s already confident he would win a Democratic primary. His decision will depend on several factors including the outcome of the 2018 midterms and whether Democrats win back the House. Gallego is also closely watching the outcome of the contentious race between Democrat Kyrsten Sinema and Republican Martha McSally for the Senate seat being left open by retiring Republican Jeff Flake. “It’s difficult winning statewide here. And luckily you have a great example in how Sinema is being competitive about it,” Gallego said. “I would probably have to look strongly about [it]. There’s no guarantee that I would win.” The 38-year-old first generation American of Colombian and Mexican descent also said he had to consider how to balance a Senate run with caring for his young son. The Marine veteran was first elected to Congress in 2014 and has been among the Democrats critical of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) -- he backed Congressman Tim Ryan (D-OH) for Minority Leader two years ago. He’s also penned a letter to AG Jeff Sessions expressing his support of legalizing marijuana. As a member of the Arizona legislature, he introduced a bill that would have legalized marijuana possession and regulated and taxed marijuana in the state in a manner similar to alcohol. In September, Latino Victory launched an effort to recruit Gallego to run in 2020 for the Senate. More here.
Cory Booker Hits New Hampshire and Says 2020 Decision Will Come After Midterms
Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ)
has officially made the rounds for a 2020 presidential bid after headlining two Democratic GOTV events in New Hampshire this weekend -- the last of four early primary/caucus-voting states. Speaking one day after the mass shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, Booker told a crowd of young activists that “we are in a moral moment in America ... This is not normal. This is not who we are.” The Senator was one of a group of prominent Democratic leaders, including former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, who were mailed pipe bombs this past week. The Senator flew to Nevada in August, delivered speeches in Iowa earlier this month, and visited South Carolina last week. He spoke at the state’s Democratic Party’s gala dinner earlier this month -- he received four standing ovations. In South Carolina, the pivotal southern primary state testing appeal to Black voters, Booker spoke at a barbecue for Democratic activists and at two HBCUs. The Senator has tried to downplay any presidential ambitions saying that he’s “not even focusing on that,” adding he’ll “start thinking about 2020” after the midterm elections. More here.

NYT Adds Jorge Aranguré
Jorge Aranguré
is joining The New York Times as a Senior Editor on the Metro desk. In his new role, he’ll assist the Times’ night editing and help oversee their relaunch of New York Today -- a daily newsletter on New York businesses, arts, sports, dining, style, and more. Aranguré was most recently a Contributing Editor for the Village Voice, where he managed pieces on transportation, education, housing, the judicial system and health care, and more. Prior to that, the Tijuana native was the Editor-In-Chief of VICE Sports, where he planned, managed, and coordinated all aspects of VICE Media’s sports vertical. The 42-year-old has additionally worked for The Washington Post and ESPN. He has written in the past about Latino and Hispanic baseball players and their impact on the game and its culture. The 1997 University of South Carolina graduate, who also has a Master’s from Syracuse University, began his career as an MLB writer at The Record in New Jersey. Aranguré once said in an interview, “Companies hire journalists of color but then don’t use them enough or put them in the right roles. Or they peg them into stereotypical roles. Companies say they want diversity but then don’t value these journalists or don’t want to get out of their comfort zone as far as the stories they tell.” He added: “I knew a lot of young, promising Latino journalists who left the business because they couldn’t find jobs. So we have to find a way to build up that talent base again at a time when the business is still trying to figure itself out. ... We have a long ways to go.” More here

Anousheh Ansari
has been named CEO of the XPRIZE Foundation -- an organization which makes multimillion-dollar awards to industry-changing technology that they say creates a better, safer, more sustainable world.

About Those Black Trump Supporters at the White House...
Regular Beat readers were not surprised about the news that the Trump administration hosted Turning Point USA's Young Black Leaders 2018 Summit. We reported earlier this month that the event for Black conservatives between the ages of 15 and 35 was happening. During Friday’s convening, Donald Trump Jr. told the group they “have the most guts of anyone in America.” He went on to say, “They’re resisting the fact that they are losing their stranglehold on entire communities,” referring to Democrats. “They just assume they have your vote anyway.” Trump received just 8% of the African American vote in the 2016 election. When the president spoke, he praised former NFL player Jim Brown and Kanye West citing his meeting with them earlier this month in the Oval Office. “I think Kanye may be the most powerful man in all of politics,” Trump said, adding that the rapper was a "little different," but "smart." Other speakers included actress Stacey Dash, NRA’s Colion Noir, and provocateur Candace Owens -- who also serves as Turning Point’s Communication Director. While HUD Secretary Ben Carson addressed the group, someone yelled “CNN sucks,” and the rest of the audience began to boo and chant -- though not exactly on rhythm or in unison. Certain members of the press had challenges covering the event. The Root’s Jason Johnson was invited as press and credentialed only to be told later they were revoking his credentials. “Seems they're afraid of being reported on,” Johnson said. There was no entry fee for the four-day conference, but attendees had to apply to be admitted. Turning Point covered lodging at no cost for attendees as well, and they offered a travel stipend if needed. The organization was founded in 2012 by conservative activist Charlie Kirk. Its website says it has more than 350 chapters, however, The Beat DC had some challenges confirming the chapters. The Summit took place October 25th through October 28th in DC. More here.
