75. I am so sorry for what you've gone through
but no matter how this works out, your voice WILL be heard. I've never been much involved in primaries (being military and overseas) but I have ALWAYS made sure my voice was heard in the GE. Primaries are, to some extent for sissies, I always thought. Make a decision, give me my choice and then I'll vote. This is the first one that I've actually been part of. It's been fun but for gosh sakes, please don't let those idiots Gelber (I think that's the Hitler moustache guy) or my absolute fave Jeremy Ring get away with what they've done. You had a shot there in FL and your people sold you out. I have Kay Bailey H. (who's a decent sort) and Cornyn (ahole of the year) and a R state senate. Take your folks out (legislatively) for me. I don't have that sort of voice.
