Hey there, OnPolitics readers! 

Our political team recently launched a daily live blog with the top news of the day. Here’s what you’ll find in today’s politics updates

Donald Trump appointed the three Supreme Court justices who were pivotal in overturning Roe v. Wade last year. But a new survey suggests anti-abortion voters aren’t planning to reward the former president at the polls next year.

In other political news, President Joe Biden is grappling with increasing political fallout after the Department of Justice discovered additional classified documents at his private Wilmington home in Delaware last Friday. The discovery has drawn criticism from both Democrats and Republicans and has called the White House’s transparency into question.

The Senate is back in session on Monday for the first time since the U.S. officially hit the debt ceiling last week. There are still a few months before the country is at imminent risk of defaulting on its debts, but lawmakers have started sounding the alarms.

House Republicans have demanded spending cuts from Democrats in exchange for raising the debt limit. So far, most Democratic lawmakers and the White House haven’t budged.
