Beto's move seems gimmicky and something a third party candidate looking to attract attention would do.

Now that Rayner and Diamond have dropped out, Eric Lynn is the likely Democratic nominee. He won't win the general. The person most likely to take this seat in November is Republican Anna Paulina Luna (who ran for this seat in 2020)

If he actually cared about the planet more than his vanity there is alot of good he could do with his money (or even $44 billion of it).

Maybe the people who just received that $44 billion from Musk could now use it for the good of the planet?
Oh, but that angle doesn't serve the cause of trying to keep online speech regulated, so I guess I needn't have mentioned it.

Really do not feel like Mandel is going to do that well. Would not shock me to see him finish third or fourth.

BrentinCO: Now that Kahele is out, Tulsi 2.0?

I could see Hanabusa making another run before Fox's newest favorite "Democrat" trying for this.

Democrats have lost their appeal to the states highest court seeking to keep their maps in place for the 2022 cycle. A special master appointed by the lower court will now be in charge of redrawing the maps with the goal being an august primary date. There’s going to be a lot of implications from this ruling that can’t be understated. Democrats could potentially lose 4-5 seats under this map compared to the old. Clean and compact lines in New York City could cause headaches for longtime machine democrats who had their districts drawn in a way that they could pick their primary electorates. It could not only leave Nicole Malliotakis with a Republican-leaning seat, but could also give republicans a second competitive NYC seat if a compact south Brooklyn seat is drawn around the Hasidic Jewish communities in Borough Park and Midwood/Gravesend (this has been proposed by multiple organizations that are submitting draft proposals to the special master). I wonder if any last minute retirements come out of this.

This would certainly explain the miles-long line of units on the west side of the Dnieper that has not moved in days but has been sitting ducks for the Ukrainians.

Here is a quick update about what has happened the past few days.

In the north, the long convoy on the west side of the Dnieper River is completely stalled and is under sporadic attack by Ukraine. A second invading army has started to go around it to the west.

The Russian force that was supposed to proceed down the east side of the Dnieper has been stopped at Chernihiv for days now, after making only 33 miles of progress.

Although the military commentators on television rarely mention it, the Russian force that is moving southwest towards Kyiv is in my view an ominous sign. These units have made the most progress into Ukraine of any Russian force.

In the northeast, Kharkiv remains in the hands of Ukraine after heavy shelling for nearly a week. The Russians are now holding back on a physical assault after being repulsed multiple times in the first few days of the invasion.

In the south, the Russians finally managed to capture a city yesterday - Kherson, northwest of Crimea. Russia has intensified its attack on Mariupol.

The map that Lukashenko used yesterday was interesting because it shows an attack on Odesa that has not happened yet - it was either a major mistake to use the map or it was a ruse, but Odesa officials are using that map to decide how to build defenses.

CA Pol Junkie: Why are people predicting "safe"? Is there any reason to think the vote for confirmation won't be 52-48 with Collins and Murkowski joining all Democrats?

I think some folk assumed this is the nomination rather than confirmation.

Thank you guys very much! I have dabbled around at OC for 18 years now, and I hope that I have brought some constructive and positive energy/information to the site.

BrentinCO is one of my favorite new friends at OC. I appreciate the thoughtfulness of your postings and the way that you sometimes find areas of agreement with people from other parts of the political spectrum. Being a Christian doesn't require us to fall in line with a political party regardless of what it does.

IndyGeorgia is one of my older friends here at OC. When I decided it was time to return to OC after a break, I believe that it was IndyGeorgia who restored my access (sorry if it was someone else and my mind is playing tricks on me here). I value your time at OC and the number of races you have entered here.

We all owe a debt of gratitude to RP for his work at OC. He has been receptive to a lot of kooky ideas that I have produced, and he has devoted a great deal of his life to enhancing the OC experience. One of my greatest regrets is that when RP needed a break from OC about a decade ago, I didn't defend him adequately when some users made unnecessarily negative comments about him.

I can't forget to mention my grief in the recent passing of Thomas Walker. Up to this point, I believe that I have met three people at OC, including Thomas. We are all at a loss that Thomas was unable to complete his biography of Alton Parker, the 1904 Democratic nominee for US President. I don't know what happened to all his Parker research.

Now that I'm 55, I have reached the point where I don't need to agree with someone on every topic in order to be friends with the person. In fact, I have let go of a lot of opinions that I formerly held (I still don't like alcohol or guns though).

I have been teaching the historic preservation course at Rowan University in Glassboro NJ the past two spring sessions, which takes a lot of my time away from OC. I really love teaching there, which is reflected by some students but not others who seem to regret taking the course. I often work in little tidbits about political history and find it shocking that the students (some of whom are history students) don't know basic things about political history --> but this points to the importance of OC in making this information available for people!
