Six months until the fall elections, so I guess I ought to start paying attention. Not that anything I do or say will affect the outcome; my congressman and senator are Democrats and are safe, so I don't even need to vote, though I will. But it's pleasing to see congressional Republicans cut and run when, after little more than a year in control of the Senate and therefore of the government, they will face the consequences. So far, 38 Republican congressmen and 3 Republican senators are "retiring," i.e. quitting, with more to follow. So far, so good. But after last fall's debacle, I'm not predicting or assuming anything - what will be, will be.
Yeah something new happens everyday-suddenly Stormy seems to have disappeared-I look forward to Cohen getting squashed! Len
Whoa there, not so fast. Cohen was set up by the LOTUS on AF-1 last week as his fall guy. Let's see first if the Southern District of NY prosecutors can flip him. If so and they get lucky, Donald's tits might get caught in a wringer.
The most prominent (at least the most notorious) Republican candidate for this seat at this point is Paul Nehlen, an alt-right Holocaust denier and anti-Semite . Nehlen ran against Ryan in the primary in 2016, losing something like 6-1. The Republicans are definitely trying to get another respectable candidate who has some local recognition on the ballot. If Nehlen wins the primary, that will undoubtedly hand the seat to the Democrats, who have a locally well-recognized union leader. Randy Bryce, a metalworker, on the primary ballot (he has already raised $5 million, mostly in small contributions. Bryce is attacking the Republicans on economic policy and jobs.
