October Surprises Continue Breaking Republicans’ Way

 

One week ago, I wrote a summary of “October surprises,” that were truly surprising. It is axiomatic that, each October, the media will unveil embarrassing, negative, damaging things about Republican candidates.

October 2018 started differently and has continued against the popular historical norm.
