Bag of Randomness for Wednesday, October 27, 2020

I should have watched the first game of the World Series. If anything, to see what was said about our new ballpark.

The Lincoln Project is becoming a media business

The Lincoln Project is looking to beef up its media business after the election, sources tell Axios.

Driving the news: The group is in talks with the United Talent Agency (UTA) to help build out Lincoln Media and is weighing offers from different television studios, podcast networks and book publishers.
