  6. New Morehouse Prez will focus on fundraising

I was wondering what happened to RJ Hunter. Good to see he’s got another opportunity in the big league.

As mentioned on the national news this morning, Wisconsin had an upset for a GOP held senate seat. They also had assembly elections in Racine and Washington counties. The Washington County results were interest. This county is one of the WOW counties, which are the republican strongholds in Wisconsin. Pick the 3 most GOP leaning metro counties in Atlanta, and this would be the Wisconsin equivalent. In Washington County the largest city is West Bend.

Average Dem over performance last night was +21.49%

SD10, out in western Wisconsin includes portions of St. Croix County, which is a well-heeled suburb of Minneapolis/St. Paul. These results are a pretty good indicator of why folks like Tim Pawlenty aren’t jumping into one of the two Minnesota Senate races.

Anyone else not surprised Georgia didn’t join 20 other states in suing to retain net neutrality? Not doing so undercuts the case for the State of Georgia subsidizing rural broadband.

It might be just a coincidence, but lets just say the government shuts down for the weekend… would that not effect the Women’s March event scheduled on the Mall in DC this Saturday? It would limit access to almost every federal venue, close down access to every mall museum and monument (they are schedule to be on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial). Does congress REALLY want the news coverage of 250 scheduled events (just in this country) focusing on the theme ‘Power of the Polls’ with the goal of voting elected officials out of office at every level local… Read more »
