If Martha McSally wins in Arizona, Republicans should thank Angela Green

If Martha McSally wins in Arizona Republicans should thank Angela Green

The Arizona Senate race is still too close to call. Republican Martha McSally leads Democrat Kyrsten Sinema by around 17,000 votes as of Thursday afternoon. Green Party candidate Angela Green has registered 39,000 votes despite dropping out of the race and backing Sinema.

It can be assumed nearly all of those who voted for Green would have voted for Sinema if Green wasn’t on the ballot.

Approximately 60% of votes had already been sent in early in Arizona prior to Green’s exit from the race. The Green Party candidate was not seen often on the campaign trail, opting to operate her organic goods and hemp clothing business instead.

Ironically, Sinema’s political career started when she ran for the Arizona House in 2002 as an Independent.

Arizona Senate race: Green Party candidate emerges as potential spoiler for Sinema, in ironic twist

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/arizona-senate-race-green-party-candidate-emerges-as-potential-spoiler-for-sinema-in-ironic-twistThe situation could represent a cruel twist of fate for Sinema, who started her own political career running for the Arizona House of Representatives in 2002 as an independent affiliated with the Arizona Green Party. McSally and her GOP allies often tried to use Sinema’s past against her, casting her as a far-left politician masquerading as a moderate.

My Take

Many like to rail against third party candidates, especially if their mainstream party candidate loses as a result. But our founders never intended parties to play a role in government and were especially fearful of the two-party system we have in place today.

If the mainstream parties want to prevent third parties from stealing votes, they should work with third parties to put up candidates that can appeal to them. Sinema could have easily been a unifying force between the Democratic and Green Parties. Instead, she chose to pretend she was a moderate despite her roots that were clearly far to the left. In that scenario, the votes she may have lost for not pretending to be a moderate may have been made up by not splitting the leftist vote.

Angela Green’s presence in this election will further alienate the Green Party from mainstream Democrats. But it’s on the major parties to work with smaller parties instead of trying to simply convince them they have no chance.

Following a terrible week for Michael Avenatti, his law firm has been evicted over past due rent

Following a terrible week for Michael Avenatti his law firm has been evicted over past due rent

Things were looking pretty bad for attorney Michael Avenatti last week. He was arrested for domestic abuse, making him the laughing stock on social media venues that he prizes as his public relations arm. His star client, porn star Stormy Daniels, is reportedly reconsidering her association with her lawyer. That was last week. This week is starting off badly as well.

His law firm has been evicted from their Newport Beach, California office building for skipping out on four months rent totally $213,000.

Avenatti’s law firm evicted from California offices over unpaid $213G rent

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/avenattis-law-firm-evicted-from-california-offices-over-unpaid-213g-rentMichael Avenatti’s law firm was ordered to be evicted from its California offices over unpaid rent after the judge dismissed his attempt to block the eviction, the latest setback for the embattled lawyer who was arrested on domestic violence charges earlier this week.

His law firm – Eagan Avenatti – was sued after skipping four months of rent payments totaling over $213,000.

My Take

As I was saying even before this latest round of bad news, Michael Avenatti needs to take a long break from the public eye. Even the best spin doctors couldn’t salvage his reputation in the short term. If he hopes to someday emerge into the public spotlight that he craves, he’ll need to take a break from being in the news and get some solid ground underneath him.

Many leftists supported him in his quests to take down the President, block Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation, launch a 2020 presidential run, and become a prominent face for the Democratic Party. It’s safe to say they backed the wrong horse.

Conspiracy Theory

Many Democrats support Mueller investigation without knowing what it’s about

“Trump stole the election!”

Two years and two elections ago, something happened that has Democrats scratching their heads even today. Hillary Clinton lost. She wasn’t supposed to lose. She was cheated some way, somehow.

This is what they hope to be proven by special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian influence in the 2016 elections. The problem is a majority of Democrats think the Russians did something that Mueller’s team isn’t even investigating because there’s absolutely no hint of a possibility that it could be true.

67% of Democrats believe “Russia tampered with vote tallies in order to get Donald Trump elected President.”

Let that sink in.

Robert Mueller Poll

If you believe Russia attempted to influence the elections by using social media and other venues to spread anti-Hillary rhetoric, you’re almost certainly correct. In fact, the Mueller investigation has assumed that to be true from the beginning. The question isn’t whether or not Russia tried to influence the elections in this way. It’s whether or not Americans helped them, in particular members of the Trump campaign.

What’s not being considered is whether or not Russia tampered with vote tallies. They did not. It’s not even a consideration in Mueller’s investigation, yet two-thirds of Democrats believe it to be true.

67% of Democrats can’t wait for Mueller to prove their theories correct even though he isn’t even investigating vote tally tampering at all. It’s reminiscent of the days after Obamacare was launched when Democrats asked, “Wait, it’s not free?”

Jai, a Tallahassee park in the background and both dressed in Florida A&M University orange and green. Gillum first thanked his supporters. Then, he officially acknowledged Republican Ron DeSantis as the winner.

“R. Jai and I wanted to take a moment to congratulate Mr. DeSantis on becoming the next governor of the great state of Florida,” Gillum said in the video posted at about 5 p.m.

DeSantis Tweeted acknowledgement of the concession.

Florida is a bellwether for the 2020 presidential election. The closeness of the race and the apparent corruption in the state means both parties have a lot of work to do. The state needs to get their act together before then as well.
