2018 Midterm Elections

May as well start a thread for this, so that we do not put too much of it in the Policy Discussion or the Trump Administration threads. I know that there will be some overlap.


Missouri GOP rep announces she won't run for Senate

Claire beat Jim Talent in 2006. She campaigned a lot in Southwest Missouri, a GOP stronghold. While Talent won there, Claire outperformed expectations. Once I saw that, I called the election for her while she was still 2.5 points down statewide.

Now the woman the GOP had recruited to run against her has decided not to. I lived in Missouri for a couple of decades and think it would be great to see Senator McCaskill serve a third term in the Senate!! She is exactly the kind of pragmatic centrist the nation needs.

We drive over to Progreso from time to time for a walk on the malecon and lunch on the beach. Somtimes we go to Celestun or Sisal or Chubura or Chelem.

Today I waited for the pool boys to show up, then went downtown to make reservations on the patio at Apoala from where we can watch the Thursday night Serenata Yucateca, stopping on the way home to pick up a chicken for lunch. Have folks coming down on Thursday for their wedding at a cenote and want to take them there.

In a bit I will go out to our pool and enjoy a little time in the sun and the water. Today's work day is abbreviated since the markets were only open 1/2 day today.

You do know we live an hour from the Gulf Coast and 3 1/2 hours from the Caribbean coast, right?

It is a very nice life, this retirement gig.

She was just over in the war zone with McCain and Graham, I think.
