No Democratic candidates for local offices in my area

Thirteen sections on my ballot and only the Federal offices and the state auditor have Democrats running. All the other sections, including my state rep has only one person on the ballot, all republicans. How can we expect change if we can't get people to run? I've only lived here for 7 years but surely there has to be local members of the Democratic party that want to represent me in the state congress.

I just hope that the get someone new to play Biden. The thought of Jim Carrey doing it full time almost made me regret my vote

Senate Majority leader?

If they do maintain control of the Senate, what are the odds of the Republicans deciding that McConnell is too toxic and choose someone else to be the majority leader? If they think that he could cost them seats in the mid-term they might decide that a more "moderate" Republican could serve them better.

I wish they kept Discussionist open for the election

I would love to have watched their heads explode while munching on some popcorn.
