From a reader:
Jonah, sorry I’m just now catching up with your posts. I went door to door
as a legislative candidate (lost) and you bet, minimum wage was huge here.
Hundreds of voters lined up at the courthouse on election day to REGISTER
and vote and I’m sure it was more the wage issue that the Burns-Tester race.
I mean if you cared that much why would you wait so long to register? But
I’m sure the libs got through to all these people via the plethora of local
nonprofits here to convince they were all going to get raises if this thing
And what is really irritating is that of course, it’s another franchise
“issue” pushed nationally and going around the states to bolster turnout.
Yet the state supreme court took OUR franchise issues off the ballot and
left THEIRS for very specious reasons–petition signatures collected by
out-of-staters. Funny how the Dems played the xenophobia card here with
that and the harping ont he fact that Burns was originally from Missouri.
