After Paul Manafort’s resignation as Donald Trump’s campaign manager last week, we’ll continue to gauge the fallout and take a closer look at Steve Bannon, the Breitbart News executive chairman who has taken over as chief of the Trump campaign.

Also, the California Secretary of State’s first voter registration report shows more than 18 million Golden State residents are registered to vote for the November elections. We’ll dive into some of the numbers to get a better sense of the who and where of registration increases and decreases.

Plus, it seems top GOP strategists are starting to test the idea of employing a “break glass in case of emergency” plan and what that might look like in response to Donald Trump’s recent struggles in the polls and within his campaign.
