Everybody thought the world was going to be changed by the election of two senators in Georgia but as near as I can tell the only bill Biden will be able to pass the Senate is the Covid relief bill because of reconciliation. Killing the filibuster has to be the next priority.

OT: She was also lobbied by Alaska Natives who helped get her elected as a write in candidate.

Wow -->> @lisamurkowski says she will vote in favor of Haaland for Interior, "despite some very real misgivings." Heavily lobbied by Alaska energy sector to oppose her.

Gooden ain’t too good at his job, is he?

But TX-5 is R +16 so it probably won’t matter.
