Progressive groups sue to block Texas governor's order limiting ballot drop-off locations
Progressive groups in Texas are suing to block a last-minute order from Governor Greg Abbott that limits the number of drop-off locations for absentee ballots. Under the order, the state can have no more than one ballot-drop off location per county. Politico's Texas correspondent Renuka Rayasam joins CBSN "Red & Blue" host Elaine Quijano with more on the legal battle, as well as details on the state's changing electorate.

The Chinese-owned platforms will no longer be available in US app stores as of September 20. The Trump administration says the apps pose a national security threat as their parent companies could pass data from US citizens to China. The president is threatening a total ban on TikTok in mid-November. But the company could still reach a deal with a US partner that would address Washington's security concerns. So how much of a security threat is TikTok? Sen. Mitch McConnell criticized Democrats and warned that "misrepresentations of the past" would be brought up as they attempt to block a vote on President Trump's Supreme Court nominee.
