For the record, my choices have not changed for any of the offices. Those who didn’t win in the primary will be in the run-off, and I still wholeheartedly support them.
After that day the candidates may take a well-earned breather, maybe a whole day, before they gear up for the general election.
Will the voters take a longer breather? Will they take the summer off and “vacation” from politics until November? If they do, they will regret it.
Because there is a bigger battle going on than the visible one with TV ads, bumper stickers and yard signs, a battle for the future existence of the republic as we know it.
Over the years I’ve noticed a disturbing trend. Some folks fight hard for a little while, then when it looks like they’ve won a skirmish they tend to sit back and rest a spell. We simply can’t afford to do that this year.
