Rep.

An ad released by his campaign doesn't spare any Republican talking points in doing it, either.

Your regular reminder that ending Moscow Mitch's majority is as critical as dumping Trump

It is always worth remembering that there are literally hundreds of bills passed by House Democrats now languishing in Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's legislative graveyard. With the Presidents Day recess over, the winter holiday break hangover is being shaken off. Impeachment is done and McConnell's cover-up of Donald Trump's misdeeds effected. Under normal Senate leadership in an election year, the real legislative work would be underway now. But McConnell will not let us have normal anymore; he won't let us have anything good. He's holding the nation hostage. Please give $1 to our nominee fund to help Democrats and end McConnell's career as Senate majority leader.

Five middle-class teams primed to take advantage if playoffs expand

With the baseball world focused on the Astros' scandal, reports surfaced in early February that MLB is considering expanding its playoff field in 2022. If adopted, seven teams in each league would make the postseason; the team with the best record in each league would get a first-round bye. Perhaps this was just commissioner Rob Manfred's effort to distract from sign-stealing purgatory.  If so, good job, commish. The leaked proposal, which generated much chatter, has merit. Most importantly, it would hugely benefit baseball's middle class. In recent years, baseball’s best teams have grown more dominant, leaving the rest in the dust. In 2017, three teams won 100 games — the first time that has happened since 2003. In 2018, it happened again, and, in 2019, four teams hit triple-digit wins. Meanwhile, in 2018, three teams lost 100 games in the same season for the first time since 2002. Last season, four teams lost at least that many. The best teams are getting better, and the bottom-feeders are getting worse, m
