McConnell leads delegation of Republican senators to Kyiv

I wouldnt be particularly upset if Putin’s military had an “oops” with one of his hypersonic missiles. The turtle has caused enough damage to the US and planet.

Could have record heat for this summer if the last two days are any indication in Wi. Temps record setting in the low 90s -high dew points. Under normal conditions were normally in the mid 60’s and 40’s for lows in May. We do get some 80s once in a while but not 90’s

Benny

It’s been known to get 90’s in Central Illinois, but not usually in the mid-90’s as it got in the past couple of days. Coolish front blowing through this afternoon, probably won’t get to see the Flower Blood moon/eclipse due to cloudy skies.

https://news.yahoo.com/john-fetterman-pennsylvania-lieutenant-governor-201545268.html

John Fetterman, the favorite to win Pennsylvania’s Democratic US Senate contest, announced Sunday that he’s recovering after a stroke.

Fetterman is at the Penn Medicine Lancaster General Hospital in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, according to a statement, which noted he first went to the hospital Friday.

Pennsylvania’s primary is on Tuesday, and polls show Fetterman, Pennsylvania lieutenant governor, holding a significant lead over US Rep. Conor Lamb and state Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta. Fetterman, who began canceling events on Friday, said Sunday he is continuing in the race.

“I had a stroke that was caused by a clot from my heart being in an A-fib rhythm for too long,” he said, adding, “I’m feeling much better, and the doctors tell me I didn’t suffer any cognitive damage. I’m well on my way to a full recovery.”

He continued: “Our campaign isn’t slowing down one bit, and we are still on track to win this primary on Tuesday, and flip this Senate seat in November.”

His spokesman Joe Calvello told CNN that the lieutenant governor was on his way to an event on Friday at a college in Millersville, which is near Lancaster, when his wife, Gisele, urged him to get checked out at a hospital.

“I wasn’t feeling well, so I went to the hospital to get checked out,” Fetterman said in the statement. “I didn’t want to go — I didn’t think I had to — but Gisele insisted, and as usual, she was right.”

Fetterman’s campaign had not given any indication that the lieutenant governor was in the hospital and did not respond to questions about whether the illness was Covid-related.

Fetterman also canceled a handful of events on Saturday and Sunday.

Lamb, one of Fetterman’s opponents, responded to the news Sunday, saying he and his wife, Hayley, “are keeping John and his family in our prayers and wishing him a full and speedy recovery.”

Happy Sunday birdies!

Hopefully John bounces right back. The R contingent looks like a total mess in PA.

Hopefully full recovery and doesn’t affect the primary.

Has Fetterman been doing that well? to be referred to as the ‘likely’ Dem contender?

From the NY Post:

Dr. Oz says he’s the GOP candidate who can defeat Fetterman in Pa. Senate race

Dr. Mehmet Oz, the TV celebrity locked in a competitive race in Pennsylvania’s Republican Senate primary, predicted that he is the one who could defeat Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, the likely Democratic contender.

“I’m the best candidate to beat John Fetterman, who is basically a tall Bernie Sanders. He’s been called … the most liberal statewide official in America,” Oz told host John Catsimatidis on his WABC 770 AM radio show in an interview that aired Sunday about the 6-foot-8-inch Fetterman.

Yes runaway lead in polls. Last one I saw he was ahead of Lamb something like 50-15.

Dude needs to smoke a bowl and relax! You can still stay focused, but the blood pressure stays in kilter.
