TOP STORIES

The roster is set for tonight’s first GOP debate in Cleveland, with the top 10 candidates in the main event and seven others in a separate, earlier contest. Fox News said that Republican presidential candidates Donald Trump, Jeb Bush, Scott Walker, Mike Huckabee, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Chris Christie and John Kasich will appear in the premiere event. That leaves Rick Perry, Rick Santorum, Bobby Jindal, Carly Fiorina, Lindsey Graham, George Pataki, and Jim Gilmore on the under card. Looking Ahead: Here’s how each candidate can win, according to The Hill.

The Securities and Exchange Commission is about to start requiring companies to disclose how much they pay their top executives, and to compare those salaries with median employee pay. Looking Ahead: Public reporting of the gap is unlikely to result in a rush to cut executives’ pay packages or boost employee salaries.

President Obama hosted more than 30 companies and 90 entrepreneurs as part of the White House’s first Demo Day to showcase female- and minority-driven start-ups. Looking Ahead: The president also announced a public-private initiative aimed at spurring women and minority entrepreneurship. 

The FBI is looking into the security of the private email server that Hillary Rodham Clinton used when she was secretary of state. Looking Ahead: Clinton is not accused of any wrongdoing, and two officials told The Washington Post that the FBI is not targeting her.

Senators are seeking a deal that would allow them to move the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act — which is intended to boost the sharing of data on hackers between the public and private sectors — before the Senate’s month-long August recess. Looking Ahead: A vote was expected to be delayed until fall, but a deal could bring the measure to the floor this week.
