Sen. Gary Peters (D-MI) is one of only two Democratic senators standing for re-election next year in states that President Donald Trump carried in 2016. As such, he is one of the National Republican Senatorial Committee’s top targets.
But on Monday, the NRSC’s attempt to attack Peters with a subtle reference from the workplace comedy “Parks and Recreation” fell flat.

The pair of tweets are presumably a reference to Gary Gergich, the bumbling Pawnee Parks Department employee who nobody paid attention to except when he made a mistake, and who was referred to by the other characters as “Jerry” and “Larry” for several seasons because he was too polite to correct them. Incidentally, Gergich was an overwhelmingly wholesome character and went on to become the town’s beloved mayor in the series finale.
The NRSC’s juvenile joke was met mostly with ridicule from social media:
This is a garbage post that nearly no one will relate to. Good job.

I love that you’re keeping this up and also doubling-down.

The same brainless morons who support the creature occupying the White House, so no surprise there. Anyone in Michigan with a brain knows who Gary Peters is.

GOP’s Collins demands delay in impeachment hearing after being overwhelmed with Dem’s massive case against Trump
Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) has demanded that Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) postpone a scheduled House Judiciary Committee hearing slated for Monday after being blindsided by a massive report from the Democrats on the committee making the case for the impeachment of President Donald Trump.
According to Newsmax, Collins -- who has become one of the president's main surrogates opposing ouster of the president -- fired back at the Democrats over their Saturday release of thousands of pages of documents to be considered from the House impeachment investigation.
Demand grows for Pete Buttigieg to come clean about his time at ‘corporate greed machine’ McKinsey
"The political risk is not that his former employer, a multibillion-dollar corporate entity that promotes fraud across the globe, will be mad at him. It's what he would have to disclose."
Days after reports surfaced about the global consulting firm McKinsey's work advising the Trump administration on immigration policy, calls are growing louder for South Bend, Indiana mayor and 2020 presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg to disclose details about the work he did for the company.
Biden won’t voluntarily testify in Trump’s impeachment trial. Here’s what that means
"No, I’m not going to let them take their eye off the ball," Biden told reporters at a campaign event in Iowa Falls on Wednesday afternoon. "The president is the one who has committed impeachable crimes, and I’m not going to let him divert from that. I’m not going to let anyone divert from that."
