Barone: Will Democrats ditch policy that has promoted income equality?

By Michael Barone | The policies of defeated one-term presidents are not as easily reversed as their victorious successors, suffused with campaign rhetoric, sometimes suppose. That applies even when, as now, the winning party has majorities in both houses of Congress. Those margins, after Democrats’ double wins in the Georgia Senate races Tuesday, are tenuous […]

Elder: Right-wing conspiracy ‘insane’ – left-wing conspiracy theories, not so much

By Larry Elder | Democrats and much of the Republican-hating media call the Republicans’ election challenge dead on arrival and say the effort hurt Republicans in Georgia.
