EXCERPT:

HARLOW: "Now they just have to sell tax reform to the American people because most of the American people don’t love this bill. Robby, Democrats, I mean, you’re a master at running campaigns. What do Democrats need to run on? Can they run in the midterms on Russia, Russia, Russia, anti-Trump, anti-Trump, or do they need more to really win?"
MOOK: "Well, I think Debbie characterized this very well. I don’t think the Russia investigation is a winning message. Voters are — they watch and they look to see what your priorities seem to be, what you’re spending your time on and what your focus is."
