That’s the name of the deal

Karine Jean-Pierre. Chief of Staff for Kamala Harris, was talking about the importance of returning mail in ballots at drop boxes or in person at this late date and to avoid mailing them. This is a congruent conflation of “name of the game” and “here’s the deal”, both meaning the most important aspect of something. “Here’s the deal” is a frequent expression uttered by both Biden and Harris. A big thanks to Bruce Ryan for hearing this one and sending it in.
