Gubernatorial primries in VA today. I'm going democrat and voting for Ralph Northam because I trust that Periello guy about as far as I can throw him. Guy seems like a desperate opportunists. Northam leans a bit too conservative for my taste, but at least it's a consistent lean right. Current Governor McAuliffe  endorsed him which is enough for me.

Lieutenant Governor is tough because I like all three for slightly different reasons. Probably going to go with Susan Platt since I feel like it's a wash here, and we could use a little more estrogen in VA politics.

This is an actual guy who ran in MD for House of Reps.

I immediately thought of him when you brought up Chaz Willow. A bit out of the Willow demographic, but his heart is there.

The Dulles Bridge Project has another voice behind it besides Hogan, though -- Mark Warner is pushing for it. It was one of his larger platforms. So we'll get the Virginia pollution regardless.

Unless he loses! He's up by 12,000 votes (out of 2.1 million counted) and nobody's calling anything yet. The Libertarian guy got 50,000 himself!

So, locally, let's talk about the big casualty of MD going Republican... Namely the Purple Line. Farewell, sane and much needed transportation alternative. Hello to the short-siighted Dulles Bridge Bypass Monster Beltway Project and a million years of fucked up construction and bad traffic that won't be fixed or complete until AFTER the Silver Line is due to connect Dulles therefore making the new Potomac Bridge outdated and pointless!  Yay!

Not sure about that. Still heavily Democratic House of Delegates and Senate. It's only the governor that is a Republican. And really, we were just here with Ehrlich for 8 years to no great effect.

The Purple Line is still in the fight, yes (and Hogan has softened his insane rhetoric opposing it as of...um...this morning!) The Dulles Bridge Project has another voice behind it besides Hogan, though -- Mark Warner is pushing for it. It was one of his larger platforms. So we'll get the Virginia pollution regardless.

Agree with most of what you say, about the "why" of voting. We do have early voting in Maryland that includes 7 straight days of voting from 10am to 8pm. Most people would have a day off to work that out in a 7 day period.

Ah, yes -- early voting! The poorly advertised, rarely spoken of option provided at a tiny select handful of inconvenient locations! The same principle applies -- it's a chore even to do the early voting.
