The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the subject of an expanded defunding campaign by a liberal group that claims that Main Street’s top lobbyist in Washington doesn’t support Democratic-sponsored voting reforms.

Accountable.US wants companies, including Target, Microsoft, and Salesforce, that have backed the reforms to quit the Chamber.

“Companies can’t have it both ways,” said Kyle Herrig, the president of Accountable.US, which is pushing the hashtag #DropTheUSChamber.

  • Longtime GOP political operative Bobbie Kilberg has been elected to the board of the Richard Nixon Foundation. Kilberg is a onetime aide to Nixon and former President George W. Bush and well known in Washington Republican and technology circles.

  • Donald Trump’s new national spokeswoman Liz Harrington gave a tribute of sorts to the late talk radio giant Rush Limbaugh when introducing herself on Real America's Voice. The former Republican National Committee spokeswoman said that she grew up in a conservative farming family that listened to Limbaugh and declared herself a “Rush baby.”

  • Pollsters Celinda Lake and Ed Goeas, the bipartisan directors of the Georgetown University Battleground Poll, are near a deal to write a book on civility and how Washington can find some. Republican Goeas said they just landed an agent and hope to have their book out early next year. It follows the addition of a civility poll to the regular Battleground survey at the suggestion of Mo Elleithee, the founding executive director of Georgetown University's Institute of Politics and Public Service, which sponsors the poll.
