Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So, most of them are done, but we still have:
DE-SEN, featuring elder statesman Mike Castle, who has served Delaware in various offices for decades, versus Palin, NRA, and DeMint-endorsed 2008 nominee wingnut Christine O'Donnell. More or less a tossup.
DE-AL, featuring a bunch of nobodies fighting for the chance to lose to Jack Markell. There's been some speculation that if Castle loses the primary, the winner of this one might let him keep running for his House seat.
DC: primaries amounting to general elections for their nonvoting delegate, mayor, and some ward members.
MD: Republican primary for Governor featuring former governor Bob Ehrlich against Palin endorsee Brian Murphy. While this primary has not been heavily polled, the few polls that I have seen give Ehrlich a 40-60 point lead. As far as I know, sitting governor Martin O'Malley has no opposition to speak of, nor does sitting senator Barbara Mikulski, running for reelection.
WI-GOV:Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett has little competition for the Democratic nod in the gubernatorial race, but Scott Walker, Milwaukee County Executive, is fending off former representative Mark Neumann.
WI-SEN: Russ Feingold is running unopposed for his nomination, but Ron Johnson faces a slightly more substantive rival than Ehrlich does, Dave Westlake, also a businessman. Johnson has more endorsements, and a lead in the polls.
Have at it!
(Reminder: this thread is not about previous elections except insofar as they pertain to this midterm and the primaries leading up to it. Nor is it about any issues that do not immediately, directly pertain to this midterm.)
All right. We are now officially past the primaries and into the general election. So it is at this time that I reintroduce something that worked so well here two years ago. I introduce it now, as many if not most states allow for early voting, and I would appreciate if it was placed into the OP.
This is an I Voted sticker. They give these out when you go to the polls; this design is the one you get at my precinct and the one we used here in 2008.
When you cast your general-election vote, I want you to make this sticker- or another one you happen to like better- your new avatar until Election Day. By the time the polls close, the only people that should NOT be sporting these stickers are those who are too young to vote and those who are not US citizens.
