Opinion: The only way Republicans can lead again

President Donald Trump is conducting an all-out assault on our democracy. There is no other way to look at this.

Matt Bevin lost reelection by a small margin, but instead of conceding defeat, he is making unfounded claims of voter fraud to question the result. The way we, as a democracy, respond to Bevin's behavior may tell us a lot about what will happen if President Donald Trump tries the same tactic in 2020.
