There is a winter storm watch for New York tonight and tomorrow until 6PM. I am scheduled to fly home tomorrow from Brooklyn.
Maybe I will and maybe I won’t.
Our dog Killer is on watch.
I have been keeping an eye on the polls, although I voted before I left town. I always vote the first day early voting allows. I want that vote banked.
In case you care, my vote went without enthusiasm for Biss.
I voted for Chuy for Congress and Fritz for Assessor.
Since I don’t live in Marie Newman’s congressional district , I can’t vote for her against the Machine’s Dan Lipinski. A win for her would be a blow to the regulars.
I wish I could have voted for Brandon Johnson for 1st district County Commish.
Boss Joe Berios is now so likely to lose that the rats are already deserting his sinking ship.
What surprises me is that some self-identified progressive and so-called independent election organizations in some progressive wards have remained silent on the race for Tax Assessor.
I don’t get it.
What a great chance to beat The Machine.
In the race for Governor, $65 million dollars has gotten JB Pritzker exactly where he started at 35%. Four points ahead of second place, undecided.
It would take all the undecideds to go elsewhere for Pritzker to lose, so I’m guessing he won’t.
If Rauner survives the Ives challenge, one might assume that in November a Democratic wave and another $100 million in a self-funded campaign would carry Pritzker to the governor’s mansion.
But these days, assume nothing.
