What on Earth could have transformed Mitch McConnell from a baron of subdivision drainage and park maintenance 30 years ago into the bare-knuckled power-wielder for the nation’s elites?

AHTV and BOOK TV will have a block of programming where all of the respective Louisville pieces for their networks will air.
"The only real challenge in this debate is coaxing the President off of the campaign trail and up to the negotiating table, to get him to choose results over rallies.”
"We are concerned that as we approach the end of your current term, this commitment will be further undermined by a final push to issue a set of 'midnight regulations,' with little opportunity for oversight."
