Wow….I didn’t know Roger Simon was retiring! That makes me sad, but glad he gets to relax and enjoy life.
He was an awesome columnist to read. His ‘simon says‘ series on politico.com was one of my favorites. I recommend going back and reading some of his 2016 campaign pieces. I suspect Mr. Simon will be signing the “I told you so” song within the next few months.
