Today’s news and information gleanings from here and there.

That super PAC was Fair Share Action. Google says, “Fair Share Action is an American super PAC that seeks to elect Democratic candidates to political office. … The super PAC is heavily funded by Tim Gill, a computer software entrepreneur and LGBT rights activist.

  • “In 1860, The Atlantic endorsed Abraham Lincoln. In 1964, the magazine endorsed Lyndon B. Johnson. And today, for the third time in its 159-year history, The Atlantic has endorsed a candidate for president: Hillary Clinton.”
