RNC maintains right to use Trump’s name in fundraising – Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Republican National Committee is defending its right to use former President Donald Trump’s name in fundraising appeals after he demanded they put an end to the practice. In a Monday letter to Trump attorney Alex Cannon, RNC chief counsel J. Justin Riemer said the committee “has every right to refer to public figures as it engages in core, First Amendment-protected political speech” and said “it will continue to do so in pursuit of these common goals.” But he maintained that Trump had also “reaffirmed” to the chair of the RNC, Ronna McDaniel, over the weekend “that he approves of the RNC’s current use of his name in fundraising and other materials, including for our upcoming donor retreat event at Palm Beach at which we look forward to him participating.” The flap ref...

How high can rates go? This chart shows this year’s sharp climb in long-term Treasury rates – MarketWatch

The Tell Published: March 8, 2021 at 7:18 p.m. ET 10-year could top 2% this year, per one forecast “There is still plenty of room for yields to climb,” investment strategist James Paulsen says. AFP/Getty Images It has become harder for Wall Street to watch U.S. Treasury yields climb without feeling a little bit queasy. After all, the Federal Reserve made cheap and abundant credit a key part of its pandemic response, with the result being that big U.S. corporations borrowed a record amount of debt last year, at ultralow rates, to bolster their balance sheets during the crisis.
