Trump’s shadow, and stalled GOP agenda, loom over close Georgia race

The unfolding drama over Russian meddling in the 2016 election and President Trump’s handling of it has transfixed Washington — and bored Mather Lindsay.

“Probably a little overdone,” Lindsay, a 46-year-old economist and father of three girls, said during lunch this week at the Salt Factory Pub. What grabbed Lindsay’s attention was the GOP’s stalled legislative agenda — in particular the promised overhauls of the tax code and the nation’s health-care law.

“Trump’s self-inflicted wounds are my biggest disappointment,” Lindsay said. “He has squandered a huge opportunity to get all that done.”

“Someone,” he added, “needs to take his Twitter away.”
