McConnell’s new posture toward Moscow

"For decades, I have used my Senate seat to stand up to Russia," the Kentucky Republican protested.

i agree with calloway1972

i agree with calloway1972 that it is 100% a waste of money to donate to amy mcgrath, who has zero chance of beating mitch.

i don't know that there is any strategy that *would* beat mitch, but it is certainly not running pro-trump conservative democrats.

dems have a pathological love of losing.
