We are finally getting to our state's primaries today. For the first time in about 40 years, the election is close enough for the Democrat's vote in our state to maybe make a difference to them. The field is pretty narrow on the ballot by the time they get to us. Of course, after 72,000 people showed up to see Barack on Sunday, Hillary may have an uphill battle on her hands. What I am most excited about is that the campaign commercials will finally stop! YAY! YAY! YAY! For about a month. We have been hearing all of the campaign news and some commercials since you folks back East were voting in January. The battle is bitter out here, and we have been suffering through the mudslinging for about 2 months. It's not just the national races, but the local ones are even worse. So, it will be nice to take a breather from the hyperbole until July when it starts up again.
