The media is primarily focused on the Pennsylvania Republican US Senate primary….

But on Sunday, the focus was on the Democrats as Fetterman announced he was recovering from a stroke. The 52-year-old said he went to the hospital on Friday after not feeling well and would remain for a while for observation.

Now McIntosh and Trump aren’t speaking, according to Trump advisers.
People who have spoken to Trump say he regularly rails about the Club for Growth and the organization being disloyal.
