Decision 2023


Friends, although the stakes are far lower in 2023 than in 2024, there are still some important bellwether races that you'll want to keep track of.  For instance, a popular Democratic Governor in the deep red state of Kentucky may be ousted by a Trump devotee, Daniel Cameron.  That would be big news.  Republicans are also hoping to take control of the State Senate in Virginia, thus consolidating their grip on the state.  The Dems, of course, are hoping to perform well nationally and to prove that their massive and well-financed turnout machine can still do its job, despite Biden's unpopularity.  All in all, I wouldn't put much stock in anything that happens in 2023, as far as what it means for 2024, but it never hurts to go into an election cycle with a head of steam, does it?


  1. Dr. Waddy from Jack: Just think: this week we drop below a year until the election. Its going to be an intensely dramatic year withal. But what sillyness our Presidential campaigns are! The great British democracy can choose a new chief executive in a day. Hoping for the best in Kaintuck.

  2. Jack, it's going to be as surreal a year as you or I have ever experienced. This might be a good time to take up hallucinogens, come to think of it!
