Fleury himself even admits that Lehner is the future for the Golden Knights and will almost certainly serve as the “starter” once he is back to full strength. And the soon-to-be 36-year-old Fleury is also better off as a “backup” at this point in his career.

This year has been epic for political news, and many of its biggest story lines — the coronavirus, racial injustice and the 2020 campaign — have played out in states at least as much as they have in Washington. With that in mind, The Fix has revived an old tradition and compiled its 2020 list of reporters to follow in each state and D.C.

So much of what we know about those major stories has come from the reporters covering officials in those states. Of course, 2020 also exacerbated the ongoing crisis in local news as the economy slowdown led to advertising shortfalls.

“With so many local and regional news organizations struggling right now — some for their very survival — their reporters are working harder than ever to find the time and resources to do the job that we need them to do. And that is to hold public officials to account on behalf of citizens,” said Margaret Sullivan, a Washington Post columnist and author of “Ghosting the News: Local Journalism and the Crisis of American Democracy.”

The biggest and most state-centric politics story may be one that’s now unfolding: voting and the election during the pandemic. How that’s done has been largely up to state officials, and the most furious fighting over it is happening in state capitols and courts.

Thank you to all the readers, colleagues and friends of The Fix who recommended people for this list. It’s not exhaustive (tell me who I’m missing via email or tweet). But if you want to know what’s happening as 2020 barrels toward its climax, these are the journalists — including digital, broadcast and print reporters, as well as some editors and pundits — you should follow.

Opinion: Michigan loss to Michigan State is worst and most surprising of Jim Harbaugh era .
Despite entering the game as a three-touchdown favorite over rival Michigan State, Michigan got out-played at home in a 27-24 loss. Though the result might not look as bad because it happened against a name-brand opponent in a rivalry game, it’s by far the worst and most surprising loss of the Harbaugh era based on the circumstances. This isn’t Mark Dantonio heyday Michigan State; it’s Mel Tucker scrapping and clawing to rebuild a roster that was left bereft of talent and lost to Rutgers a week earlier.
