We’re in the final days before the midterms and I’m coming into it feeling like
Not sure if we can prevent a post apocalyptic future, but I’m damn sure gonna try. What about the rest of you?
Things look ominous, certainly. While Brian Kemp refuses to recuse himself from the Georgia election tallies, Stacey Abrams leads him by one point.
