The whispering campaign continues to mention 3 prominent politicians who have yet to come out of the closet - (1) a southern Senator, (2) a mid-Atlantic Senator, and a former mid-western Senator who currently resides in Wash. D.C.
Gee, I wonder who that could be?
Kyrsten Sinema is not bad looking. I think the mid-atlantic senator is Barbara Milkulski.
I kind of liked Nan. Her medical background was useful in this day. She’s not pro-life, but her voting record on the issue was not bad in her one term. It would have better to keep her.
If the GOP wins the seat again, it is likely to be a total Pro-Abort Rino.
It is interesting the GOP always loses the close elections.
