There was a Republican primary election on Tuesday to see who gets to face incumbent Democrat Senator Kay Hagan in the Fall…
I don’t want to get carried away being always aware of how Republicans can screw up a sure thing, but thus far it looks like the GOP will be taking this seat from the Dems.
Why you ask?
First off, the winner, Thom Tillis is a solid candidate – no Todd Akin here. As the Speaker of the State House., Tillis is a somewhat moderate and congenial fellow. And even though the Dems spent $6 million trying to destroy this man he still got 45% of the vote in a crowded primary. They were so desperate that an ad was produced in which Tillis said ObamaCare was a “great idea,” even though Tillis said he was being sarcastic.
The Democrats are toast this fall, mark my words.
That said, what I fear most is that the Republicans are likely to make a bigger mess of things than the Dems.
To be honest, I’ve been very stressed out. This World we live in is on the brink of economic, environmental and social disaster. Between watching World War III unfold and trying to maintain a law practice, I’m wiped out.
I’m going to try and slowly return to writing, but it’s very hard to do with an absence of hope. I’m going to try and find a fire within and somehow regain whatever vestiges of hope I may have.
I do have a full-fledged, tinfoil hat theory on what happened to the Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 and will try and put it in essay form for you.
In the meantime, good luck and godspeed.
