What’s next

Can you believe it?

First they shielded the President from impeachment. Then they defended his botched response to the pandemic. Now Mitch McConnell and Cory Gardner are blaming the administration’s failures on—you guessed it—the Democrats. Donald Trump’s refusal to accept responsibility for anything is bad enough.

Let me be candid

This is not the letter I expected to write. Then again, nothing has gone according to plan.

Counter Mitch

We hope you and your family are safe and healthy. Can you spare a moment of your time? We know it’s difficult to focus on the election. But Mitch McConnell leaves us no choice.
