Mike's Blog Round Up
November 5, 2018

Plunderbund: GOP gubernatorial candidate Mike DeWine is fortunate Ohio no longer has a law against false advertising in political campaigns.

Show Me Progress: Who’s afraid of Chuck Todd? Missouri Republican Senate candidate Josh Hawley.

Calculated Risk: After slashing almost 300,000 federal, state and local government jobs under President Obama, the public sector is growing again under Donald Trump.

Zandar Versus the Stupid: The unbearable whiteness of domestic terrorism in the U.S.

Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
"What Senator Reid may call domestic terrorists, I call patriots." (Nevada Republican Senator Dean Heller, on Bundy ranch militiamen in Nevada, April 18, 2014.)
