Heh, no Florida Republicans among those who voted no.

They really are desperate to keep the Puerto Ricans from burying them in the future.

I would too but I won't be eligible to vote until 2019 the earliest.

I'd ask my husband but he loves Newsom so I doubt it'll happen.

I mean you can vote for Newsom in the primary and get a potential D v R general which could boost R turnout or vote Villaraigosa, deny Rs the GE ballot, and then watch Newsom crush Villagairosa in the GE and deplete R turnout.

I would do this if I felt it had any chance of success. This is master level gamesmanship though. The average California voters doesn't understand the props we vote on let alone the intricacies of California primary voting and possible down ballot effects.

Not high but it's possible. Democrats have an A tier and a B tier candidate, whereas all Republican candidates are D tier. But if Newsom does really good in the primary and siphons enough votes from Villaraigosa, a Republican might squeak through.

Exactly. Villaraigosa has no chance of beating Newsom because SoCal Dems don't love Villagairosa and Newsom has built up a lot of goodwill since 2004. There's no reason to make this a D v R contest.

Instead of realizing people donít want to do business or move here because our cities are terrible places to live.

Basically I think our situation is sort of similar in a small state way to France and the general direction as a state given how things have gone down is going to push us towards a Macron who will probably have to make some unpopular but necessary decisions given how things have been mishandled recently

This sort of highlights the issue with the "business friendly" approach, though. Businesses are attracted to thriving cities and communities way more than they are to low taxes and deregulation.

Facebook scrubbed potentially damning Russia data before researchers could analyze it further

Facebook removed thousands of posts shared during the 2016 election by accounts linked to Russia after a Columbia University social media researcher, Jonathan Albright, used the company's data analytics tool to examine the reach of the Russian accounts.

Albright, who discovered the content had reached a far broader audience than Facebook initially acknowledged, told The Washington Post on Wednesday that the data had allowed him "to at least reconstruct some of the pieces of the puzzle" of Russia's election interference.

Eh, I don't think this means "CT will get an R governor". It's going to be a bad year for Republicans and the center of gravity in CT is less elastic than other New England states because it's much more diverse.

But the Dem who wins the nomination is going to be VERY different from Molloy and probably has to be very aggressive in rhetoric and policy. But it also means why Wyman would be the worst choice because of her ties to Molloy. Bhargava stands out in that regard but oh boy, this is a lame race on both the R and D side, like most CT elections.

Not like Jodi Rell set the world in fire with her dynamism.

You lose with like Wyman or, lol Ganim. The R side is kinda weak too.

With Congress with a desire to actually do something, I would expect some form of legislation to punish Facebook indirectly in efforts to curtail this kind of shit. That is not our current Congress. After all this Russia investigation winds down, nothing will change and it will already be too late to stop anything they are going to do in 2018/2020.

Oh, didn't notice.

Does sounds like it's somewhere between a small and moderate hit to obamacare. And all these smaller hits will add up over time.
