Guys, two states have their primaries tomorrow and they couldn’t be more alike and more different at the same time!
- Alaskastan – They are voting to fill-in the remainder of Rep. Don Young’s seat (he died earlier in the year) so it is not exactly a primary, and then they are having a primary for the same seat for the next Congress, so this is a perfect moment for some insanity, and that in only enhanced by the re-emergence of Mooselini! Also, they are holding the primary for one of their two Senate Seats: Lisa Murkowski. Add into the mix that this is a top 4 primary with ranked choice voting, and Dawg only knows who will come out on top of this Idiotarod dog pile (see what I did there?), but it should be a wild night.
- Wyoming – Darth’s Daughter, the far, far-right winger Liz Cheney is looking to lose in a landslide to Harriet Hageman .(A new University of Wyoming poll finds Hageman leading Cheney, 52% to 30%.) Hageman is totally and completely endorsed by Hair Füror. It’s not much of a surprise, but Cheney is pushing Democrats to re-register as Republicans at the polls (which they can do) and vote for her. I doubt that there are enough Democrats in the state to make up the difference.
This of course clears the path for Darth’s little squirt to run in the 2024 Goat Rodeo, and the only question remaining is in which party she would run: 1) Republican or B) Libertarian (I don’t think they like her because she is also a Christifa) or iii) Independent (which would mean first trying to get on all the ballots in all the states, and boy howdy, that ain’t gonna happen).
Anyway, should be a wild night, as Emily Dickinson used to say.
