The Daily Kos Elections Morning Digest is compiled by David Nir, Jeff Singer, Stephen Wolf, and Carolyn Fiddler, with additional contributions from David Jarman, Steve Singiser, Daniel Donner, James Lambert, David Beard, and Arjun Jaikumar. Leading Off ● GA-Sen: On Sunday, two days after acknowledging Republican Brian Kemp as the winner in this year's race for governor, Democrat Stacey Abrams told CNN's Jake Tapper that she plans to seek public office again, though she didn't specify a race or a timetable: «I'm going to spend the next year as a private citizen, but I do indeed intend to run for office again. I'm not sure for what and I am not exactly certain when. I need to take a nap, but once I do, I'm planning to get back into the ring.» After turning in the best gubernatorial performance by a Georgia Democrat in decades with her 50-49 loss, Abrams would be a top contender to challenge GOP Sen. David Perdue in 2020. However, if she does indeed plan to take a full year off (which would be quite understandable after a bruising year and a half on the campaign trail), it might be too late to mount a Senate race. That said, Abrams' name-recognition and fundraising prowess could allow her to wait longer than most candidates.
A federal judge is once again standing in the way of Donald Trump’s illegal orders—this time his proclamation blocking people who cross the southern border between ports of entry from applying for asylum: «Whatever the scope of the president's authority, he may not rewrite the immigration laws to impose a condition that Congress has expressly forbidden,» Tigar wrote in his opinion. «Asylum seekers will be put at increased risk of violence and other harms at the border, and many will be deprived of meritorious asylum claims.» The immigration law in question says that migrants can apply for asylum “whether or not at a designated port of arrival.” This is likely another place where Trump will look to Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch to bail him out by being a lapdog and a sociopath, respectively.
If Nancy Pelosi falls, the likely next speaker would be Rep. Steny Hoyer — a total catastrophe for the left

Finally taking a break from politics this week. In the early days of social media, it seemed a notification was a notification. Someone mentioned you or tagged you in a photo, you got pinged, and that was that. Over the past couple years or so, I've noticed both Facebook and Twitter desperately throwing random notifications into the mix about various friends' activities. I'm getting Facebook alerts about people I don't know commenting on posts written by people I don't know. Once in a while, Twitter burps up some obnoxious little nudge informing me that someone has tweeted, or liked a tweet. Now, before people write me with advice about changing my settings, let me assure you I have tried everything humanly possible. At least in some cases, YOU CAN’T TURN THEM OFF. (I realize this is hardly the biggest problem in the world right now, but it’s fun to complain about.) Help sustain these cartoons — join the Sorensen Subscription Service!

Miu Miu recently launched the Croisiere 2019 advertising campaign. “A hotel is a point of endless rendezvous and interaction, both a destination and a starting point: a threshold between familiarity and the hitherto undiscovered. Inside a hotel’s rooms and suites, labyrinthine corridors and vestibules, personas are easily worn and shrugged off, different roles assumed and exchanged — a million stories can be told. A hotel is a space open to reinvention of the self,” says an official release. The grand public space of the lobby or foyer marks a point of convergence, a spontaneous and unexpected arena for the exchange and interchange of distinct characters. A proscenium arch under which personalities are perceived, discerned, redefined as guests mill around, blurring lives together. A hotel is a paradox — simultaneously intimate and expansive, private and public. It is an ephemeral space — a home, but only for a night, according to the release.“The Miu Miu Croisiere 2019 campaign captures this essence — of constant change, of intrigue and interaction. A litany of women from different walks of life — models, movie stars — cross paths at the entrance to the gilded foyer of the fin de siecle Hotel Regina in Paris. The revolving cast promenading through the doorway includes the actress Gwendoline Christie and the models Lucan Gillespie, Taylor Hill, Kendall Jenner, Adriana Lima, Ariel Nicholson, Cami You Ten, Zoe Thaets and Naomi Chin Wing — vividly illustrating the notion of the hotel as cultural crucible, a pole of intersection,” says the release.Captured by Alasdair McLellan at the very door of the hotel, suspended in dynamic action, these figures are poised, on a threshold. Whether entering or exiting, the women are boldly stepping into the unknown. Nothing can be anticipated, but anything may be expected, as per the release.The brand’s Miu Miu More collection that was launched some time ago, also created a lot of buzz because of its campaign. A multifaceted cast of Hollywood star Elle alongside models Eniola Abioro, Olivia Anakwa, Olivia Forte, Lucan Gillespie and Oumie Jammeh, graced the campaign.“Desires, obsessions, passions. The needs and loves of the Miu Miu girl — her fashion fantasies, her daydreams — inspire a filmic short in celebration of the holiday period. An alternate Miu Miu world — a magic ’Miu-niverse’ created by director Gordon von Steiner — is an ode to mid-century art-house and avant-garde movies, a wild choreography of color and light, intense and illusory, a Miu Miu mania. Impressionistic, abstract, it is peopled with cinematic homages and aesthetic memories, a polychromatic reverie,” says the Miu Miu website.Click on the slideshow for a sneak peek at the campaign. https://www.blouinartinfo.com/ Founder: Louise Blouin
