“I did want to come out here with my Nationals hat on, but they told me that would violate some type of rule,” Mulvaney stated, referencing the Nats’ resounding sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals in the National League Championship Series. “I was also going to wear my Montreal Expos hat then they said that would be foreign interference in the World Series and we couldn’t do that either.”

The Nats knocked off St. Louis 7-4 Tuesday night, as 12 candidates were on stage during the CNN-New York Times Democratic presidential primary debate. (RELATD: Nationals Fans Boo Bryce Harper In His Return To Washington D.C.)
