… The French Right has a Very Good Chance {#winning]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,December 9th,2016

.. Francois Fillon has become a very Strong candidate for President of france . He persuaded a FOrMEr Pres , Nicholas Sarkozy , to withdraw from the race . The French Right held a primary in order to select their candidate . So far , the Socialists are not doing so . Fillon won and is in a strong position to win the national election  ..

.. The Socialists have a serious problem . Incumbent Pres Francois Hollande is running for re – election .. As many as 3 other candidates , including current pm Maniel ValLS , are going to RUN . which creates a serious problem for Hollande . The Socialists have no primary like the Right does . Ergo , All 4 Socialists will be on the ballot in the first round of the eLEction ..

.. France runs their elections in a similar method to the u.s. state of Louisiana . The 1st round is A ” jungle primary ” , where everybody is on the ballot . If nobdy gets to 50 % , then the top two vote getters advance to a runoff election . Because of this , the Socialists , incl. Hollande , risk not getting thru to the runoff . The French Right [fillon] and the national Front [Maxine Le Pen would make it , where fillon would crush le Pen … x

… What werre the NV Dems Thinking [#absentee ballot process][#military][#US]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,February 24th,2016

.. getting absentee ballots to our overseas military is never easy . You have to think ahead , and to plan ahead in order for them to get their ballots in enough time for them to be able to vote , especially without being rushed . Then it takes more time for their ballots to be returned ..

.. then you have a caucus . That presents even more headaches ..

.. Caucuses are meetings . People take time out of their day [or evening] to stand up for their political principles , and those candidates whom they might support . However , this becomes a very big issue for the uniformed military ..

.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. in other countries , their military services are rife with politics . As a result , the professional level of theose nation ‘ s armed services suffers as a result . our does not , and does not permit it . But it does permit [and encourage ] people to vote …

.. but what the DemOCrap party in Nevada did in their recent caucus is a disgrace . They had our troops in the field spend 3 to 4 hours on the phone [on an international call] to participate in their local caucus . Are you kidding ?? Those calls are extraordinarily expensive , as well as time – wasting . Be real ..

.. The Nevada GOP was far more practical . They did things the olde fashioned way . They had our troops participate with their candidate preferences [in the caucus] with an absentee ballot . Simple enough ..

.. There has to be a better way . Maybe the Nevada GOP Already has it ..

… the Results of the Early States affect Us here [#Ohio]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,February 23rd,2016

.. in my home state , early voting has begun . I have sent for my in – mail absentee ballot . It should be here at my home in a few days ..

.. you can do that [by mail] up to the day before the election [in our case , March 15th] . By then , you have to then do it the old – fashioned way [in person] ..

.. between now and then [February 17th and March 15th] , you can vote in person absentee at our state ‘ s individual county boards of elections . You can take your time , but not forever . other people will also want to take advantage of the electoral process ..

.. there are still quite a few states that do not have this voting feature . It has changed campaigning , no doubt . Whether it has changed campaigning for the better is still open to a great deal of question ..

… Busy Day [#Primary Day] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,June 3rd,2014

.. election day , today ..

.. eight different states with primary elections , today , including : …

.. California — not too much here — the principal ones are the congressional ” jungle ” primaries . If two candidates from the same party make it to the general election , then the other party ….. too bad ….

.. the big battle should be the last district , # 52 — Incumbent Scott Peters is likely headed to a fall battle with local San Diego businessman Carl de Maio …

.. Iowa — republican Joni Ernst is likely headed to a fall battle with congresscritter Bruce Braley . If Braley can keep his foot out of his mouth , then this one will be a real barn – burner …

.. New Mexico — the set – up for the fall election . nothing major here …

.. New Jersey — ditto , except for a special election in CD # 1 …

.. South Dakota — a set – up for the fall . The prime battle will be the US Senate battle for the seat that is now currently held by retiring Senator Tim Johnson . This one is widely expected to go Republican …

.. Montana — the set for the fall battle will be the US Senate race , also a seat that is very , very highly likely to go Republican …

.. Mississippi — a crazy brawl in the Republican primary . Thad Cochoran is trying to survive and hold onto his seat . If he wins the primary [which he may not] , he would be an easy faviourite to win in the general election …

.. Alabama — nothing major , here

… the Matchup is Now Set [Ohio] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,May 12th,2014

.. well , Ohio has joined the primary party ..

.. no major surprises in the primary races ..

.. the big thing here in Ohio is that 1 – term Cuyahoga County Executive Ed Fitzgerald is the DemoCrap nominee for Governor against incumbent Republican John Kasich . Kasich is a fairly health favourite for re – election against the underqualified Fitzgerald , who does not deserve to move up just because he is making the trains move on time and un – corruptly ..

… Primary Season is Really in Gear …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,May 10th,2014

.. Illinois kicked it off almost two months ago .

.. now , North Carolina and Ohio have joined the party .

.. basically , week by week , the rest of the summer , the various states are going to holding primaries for various offices . Local offices are definitely included , but they are not the ones that grab the headlines . It is the statewide races that do ..

.. Added anticipation comes this year in the Senate races , as the GOP has a very , very good shot at knocking out the Democraps from the majority . I hope that they do so …
