The Republicans were the big winners in last night’s elections, and many of you are asking how that will impact Matt’s decision on whether or not to run for Congress.

“You guys are losing every race. Why should I use your advice?” Jones said. “I’m not saying that to be rude, but I was proven correct in this thing.”

“He has,” Jones said. “But out of shambles something can rise. Right?”
Matt said he’ll make his decision in the next few weeks.
