Tom Vilsack returns to the position he held during the Obama administration at USDA. Why hasn’t the pandemic compelled a rethinking of factory farming.

It’s starting to sink in: Republican Sen. Cory Gardner helped mastermind the GOP’s midterm strategy of pushing Senate candidates closer to President Donald Trump.
