Good Tuesday morning. Here are some of the stories making news in Washington and politics today.
• Virginia’s turmoil deepened on Monday as Gov. Ralph Northam, struggling with fallout from the revelation of a racist photo on his medical school yearbook page, was indirectly accused of sabotage by his own lieutenant governor. Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax suggested the governor’s allies had a hand in unearthing sexual assault claims made against him, to stop him from becoming governor should Mr. Northam resign.
• Stacy Abrams, whose unsuccessful run for governor of Georgia attracted much attention, and who will deliver the Democratic rebuttal to the State of the Union, is being courted to run for the Senate in 2020.
