Re: VP Harris to California to campaign for Gavin Newsom

VP Harris won't add votes, but probably depress votes. She is highly unpopular even on her own state of California, where she dropped out of the Presidential nomination race there before any votes would be cast. As for the recall race. Why can't we all celebrate the FACT that Larry Elder *MIGHT* be...

Re: Texas governor Abbott signs new GOP voting restrictions into law

This isn't about poll taxes or keeping people of color from voting. Then what is it about? We already know these are laws based on lies, and based on the Georgia laws, that were based on lies. Why is not about poll taxes or racism as well? Every bit of the lies and outrage over "voter fraud&qu...

Re: VP Harris to California to campaign for Gavin Newsom
