September 18, 2018

The 2018 Primetime Emmy Awards were last night, and overall, streaming services dominated. Netflix tied with HBO for the network with the most awards at 23 each. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, a show from Amazon's prime streaming service, swept the show. Game of Thrones picked up Best Drama Series, with Peter Dinklage winning Supporting Actor in a Drama. 

President Trump is laying new tariffs on China.  The White House announced plans for a ten-percent tariff on 200-billion-dollars worth of Chinese imports yesterday.  The sanctions will take effect next Monday.   

Midterms are coming up, but some of us are already looking ahead to 2020. Our very own Governor Hickenlooper may be sending stronger signals about a possible run for the White House.  Yesterday, he filed paperwork necessary to form a political action committee.  The move paves the way for fundraising efforts to increase Hickenlooper's national visibility and help support candidates in other states.  The governor has yet to publicly say whether he will run for president.
