Just desserts

The Colorado State Senate "worked" into the wee hours of the morning trying to ram through as much of the lefty agenda as they can accomplish in the next few days. They stayed in session over the weekend, too. They're trying to do as much damage as possible on their way out the door.  Amy Oliver

Strike’s Over/New polling

Magellan has a new poll of Republicans out this morning. Usually, we just see polling of primary voting Republicans and then we pivot straight to the general - but this survey includes both primary and general voting Republicans.
