Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America get a kick out of seeing the Democratic National Committee with less than half a million dollars on hand heading into the midterms while Republicans have $40 million ready to go. They also shake their heads as Maryland GOP Gov.

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. ACF#24: Groundhog Day

 

Today’s podcast is Groundhog Day, because this is the 25th anniversary of the movie. The Federalist’s Robert Tracinski joins me for a discussion of the best Bill Murray movie bar none–and one of the few contenders for comedy of the ’90s.
