    Did Joe Biden win the 2020 election?


  5. - Rich Miller - Monday, May 23, 22 @ 3:35 pm:

  10. - H-W - Monday, May 23, 22 @ 3:40 pm:

    As a Republican, where do you believe you are most likely to find common ground, when it comes to working with what undoubtedly be a Democratic State Legislature? What laws do you think you can usher through the State Legislature?


  11. - Rich Miller - Monday, May 23, 22 @ 3:44 pm:

    sal-says, I think that might work.

    Would you be willing to take the state’s budget hostage as bargaining chip for any one of your agenda items?


  13. - Give Me A Break - Monday, May 23, 22 @ 3:45 pm:

    What programs do you consider to be waste and should be eliminated and since you seem to know about fraud in state government, why have you not used the already existing means to report that fraud to the applicable EIOG or law enforcement agency?


  14. - Give Me A Break - Monday, May 23, 22 @ 3:47 pm:

  22. - Lefty Lefty - Monday, May 23, 22 @ 4:17 pm:

  23. - Amalia - Monday, May 23, 22 @ 4:19 pm:

  30. - Galway Bay - Monday, May 23, 22 @ 4:52 pm:

    Amalia Mike Madigan is facing federal charges. Not up to Gov on pardon if convicted.
