I report for Bloomberg Government on the 2020 U.S. House and Senate elections from Washington, D.C. I also write profiles of members of Congress and keep track of congressional voting behavior, redistricting, the census, and money in politics. I’ve been with Bloomberg for more than nine years, and before that I worked as a political reporter at CQ. We're less than one year out from Election Day 2020, and Democrats are defending their majority in the House as Republicans seek to keep control of the Senate. The high-profile presidential election will influence the congressional races. So what would you like to know? Could the Democrats win control of the Senate or might Republicans reclaim the House? Which Senate and House races appear to be the most competitive? Is there a specific House or Senate election you'd like to know more about? Off of reddit, you can find me on Twitter @greggiroux

A second U.S. Embassy staffer in Kyiv overheard a key cellphone call between President Donald Trump and his ambassador to the European Union discussing the need for Ukrainian officials to pursue "investigations," The Associated Press has learned.

The July 26 call between Trump and Gordon Sondland was first described during testimony Wednesday by William B. Taylor Jr., the acting U.S. ambassador to Ukraine. Taylor said one of his staffers overhead the call while Sondland was in a restaurant the day after Trump’s July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy that triggered the House impeachment inquiry.

The second diplomatic staffer also at the table was Suriya Jayanti, a foreign service officer based in Kyiv. A person briefed on what Jayanti overheard spoke to AP on condition of anonymity to discuss a sensitive matter currently under investigation.
