Good news and bad news

You may have noticed I’ve been MIA lately.  I’m moving to DC at the end of the month (good news), and until then I am living with friends and don’t really have much access to the internet.  That, plus the planning inherent in any big move, has kept me from keeping you as informed as I would like.

I’ll be back in April.

Until then, go to JimTedisco.com and support his run on New York’s 20th District.  The special election is March 31!

New Jersey Update

I’m sure that Richard Merkt is a wonderful man, but I’ve decided to wait until after the New Jersey GOP gubernatorial primary to endorse a candidate there.

Now is not the time for depression

A few thoughts:

1) We may have lost the presidency, but we can’t lose hope.  Not now, or ever.

2) Congratulations to Pete Olson and Jason Chaffetz for their outstanding victories last night.

3) With this election cycle over, Down the Ticket will now look to the gubernatorial elections in Virginia and New Jersey.

4) For the 2010 election cycle, Down the Ticket will narrow its focus to around 5-6 races.  As you may have noticed, having a 12 hour a day job and contributing to another blog on top of this one burnt me out a bit.  One man following 20+ candidates is a bit much.

Remember, Obama may have won last night, but we can still fight.  Keep the faith.

Home from vacation!

I know, I know, I missed you, too! Ha.

Morning flight with one of the neediest passengers ever to fly commercial air? Check.

Mini-nap? Check

10-hour, 4:30pm to 2:30am shift at work followed by an 8am-8pm shift on Wednesday? Ughhhh……Definitely not check.
