Thanks again to rdelbov for letting me sit in today. I'm off to Reno early tomorrow morning, so I won't be around most of the day unless things are slow. Here's a bonus open thread/poll for everyone.
1. Romney was teased throughout the race as being Mr. 20%, the frontrunner who no one really liked, the co-conspirator to Obamacare, and the race's most out-of-touch candidate. So how did he win the nomination so handily then, with no real scare to speak of?
2. If Romney had either not run, dropped out for personal reasons, or committed an early major gaffe that left him mired in low single digits, who would the nominee have been?
Elections have consequences -- from the race for President to the race for one seat on a city council. The political economist Max Weber wrote that the state possesses a monopoly on the legitimate use of force. But in the United States, the state is divided into myriad federal, state, and local entities. And the elections to fill those entities are the products of the fascinating interactions between campaigns, party affiliations, voter turnout, and the media spotlight. Red Racing Horses analyzes those elections -- from a Republican-leaning perspective -- to keep a close eye on the process of electing officials, and to offer our perspective on the election-related issues of the day. Thank you for visiting, and we hope you'll enjoy the blog.
