Today's installment of campaign-related news items from across the country.

Today's installment of campaign-related news items from across the country.

* In Michigan, where Democratic state legislative candidates received the most votes while Republicans received the most power, a federal court yesterday unanimously struck down the state's gerrymandered district lines, concluding that the existing map is "deliberately" discriminatory.

* Symone Sanders, a prominent African-American political strategist and Sen. Bernie Sanders' former press secretary, has joined former Vice President Joe Biden's 2020 team.

* And speaking of Biden, the former vice president reached out to Anita Hill to express regret for how he responded to her testimony in 1991, and by all appearances, the professor was not satisfied with Biden's contrition.

* Nevertheless, the Delaware Democrat picked up some additional endorsements yesterday afternoon from several U.S. House members, as well as his home state's governor, John Carney (D).

* During her appearance at the "She the People" event this week, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) unveiled her latest policy proposal: a measure intended to address black maternal mortality rates.

* Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld (R), running a long-shot primary campaign against Donald Trump, made the case this week that the president should resign from office in response to the Mueller report. Weld went on to describe Trump as "a one-man crime wave."

* And during his latest Fox News interview, the president offered his assessments of several of the Democratic presidential hopefuls, including Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), whom Trump accused of having "a little bit of a nasty wit." I'll look forward to seeing how the Harris campaign puts the line to good use.
