John James completely eclipsed the establishment candidates during the August convention. He would have done the same last weekend, too.
Gina Barr got 43% of the vote to Cox’s 57%. I don’t think Barr is ready for prime time but it shows that the conservative wing is growing in influence and the establishment wing better start to engage them regarding their priorities.
Yes, most of the speeches were uninspiring but Ron Weiser got a standing O for his retirement speech. Even people who disagreed with the way he ran the party gave him his due respect.
Redistricting: Arab-American district? African-American district? Asian-American community? Really?! Where is the American-American district? Hyphenating Americans will never inspire unity. I have my doubts about this new redistricting commission.
