ROCHESTER, NY - "I believe in this union" shouts 75 year old, African American Bishop Herman Dailey as he clutches a megaphone outside of GM's Rochester Operation, where he worked for nearly 35 years.

Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin showed up at Adventureland Park in Altoona, Iowa, on Nov. 19, 2016, with four bottles of Maker’s Mark bourbon.

The bourbon was a present for Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad’s 70th birthday bash. In tow were three of Bevin’s children, chief of staff Blake Brickman, and operations director John Hodgson. They ate beef and pork barbecue sandwiches, baked beans, cornbread and chocolate cupcakes decorated with phony mustaches.
