    With regard to the race to unseat McConnell, the best candidate is the one that gets no press. Mike Broiher, retired Marine Lt Col, small farmer, and boring 50+ white guy. Everything that I’ve seen that he’s said or written has been spot on perfect. But he’ll be completely ignored by those who like a shiny pony. Reminds me of everyone I know who should be a big Bernie or Warren fan but who, instead, like the pony that is Mayor Butthead.
