“Clean Dems?” Surely you jest. Feingold is “clean” just like one end of a turd is cleaner than the other!

I am no Ayotte fan, but with Hassan forced to return so many of these checks and Trump climbing in NH, she is more likely to make it back to the Senate, and the fewer Dem senators the better for enacting the Trump agenda.
