I am hoping for an epic fight and fail. That will seal the fate of “the conservative democrats” in wva nd ind mont and a few other places,we might have 60 after the rats pull a,stunt like Schumer is hoping for . Nothing can mess this up.
Can you IMAGINE the ads we can run if they don’t vote for the nominee?? So delicious.
