Apparently, the Big 10 may cancel this season. Clay Travis is rallying southern governors to resist the urge, although southern states are in the middle of a spike in cases.
The right wing is working overtime to politicize Covid.
It would be a shame if CFB is cancelled for the year, but getting governors to push universities and the NCAA into doing something unsafe would be completely irresponsible.
Just a heads up! This will be the next battle played out over the coming days and itll likely be ugly.
It looks like Patricia Sigman (D) is a serious candidate to win the nomination this month. She can take the seat and flip it blue. If youre inclined to donate please do. Her Republican opposition in the race is well-financed.
Longwood resident Patricia R. Sigman is a Democratic candidate on the primary ballot for state Senate, District 9. There is one opponent running against her for the seat and she is hopeful voters will turn out for the Aug. 18 primary elections to get her name on the ballot for the elections on Nov. 3.
Sigman is a long-standing member of this community. She and her husband, Phil, have been affiliated with Temple Israel and also Congregation of Reform Judaism.
"Seminole County is our home and our roots here run deep," she told Heritage. "The Sigman family has been here since the early 1960s."
Sigman, a board-certified Labor & Employment lawyer and a civil mediator for 26 years, has seen all aspects of law from the business, community and personal perspective. She is a small business owner (Sigman & Sigman, P.A. in Altamonte Springs), a voter protection leader, community volunteer, and with her husband, Phil, has raised three children - all of whom attended Seminole County Public Schools, as well as the JCC pre-school and JCC summer camps.

Not great at all. Still a long way to go but Ill take any good news. Im not cheering for a disaster. I am not hoping for bad news. This is deadly. Id be thrilled if it burned out today.
That said, Ron DeathSantis still needs to resign. Any progress we might be making has nothing to do with him.
We are witnessing the greatest dereliction of press and gubernatorial duty in the history of America.
Community spread is too high across most of Florida to safely open schools!
Orange County asked for a waiver and he hasnt said one way or the other whether it will be granted. Keep the pressure on!
Emails are great but phone calls make more of an impact!
But OPEN THE SCHOOLS!
Yall better start emailing and tweeting Ron DeSantis!
Hell we are doing him a favor by shutting the schools! His pic will be next to the first beloved teacher or cute little student who dies!! The media will eat him alive.
In Central Florida hospitals are calling for COVID survivors to aid in the fight by donating. Im sure its the same everywhere.
Ernst admits there should be hearings and a vote for a SCOTUS justice if (God forbid) RBG were to die...even during the lame duck session.
This right here proves that the winning the Senate and controlling the SCOTUS nominee hearings are just as important, if not more, than the winning POTUS.
Ernst must lose!!! This would rip the country to pieces. The political death match would be unprecedented and shes all for it.
Rachel Maddow, Meet the Press, Morning Joe all should run with this and absolutely roast DeSantis! They say schools shouldnt open unless our positivity rate declines!
17000 kids from around the country at the Orange County Convention Center. Just wonderful!
Jerry Demings is the Orange Co mayor where Rep Val Demings is from.
The whole world knows that COVID is spiking in FL.
But Jerry Demings is doing nothing. Teachers are calling for him to come to their side and tell the OCPS School Board its unsafe to open schools. The OCPS School Board wants local authorities to help build a case to keep schools closed.
The Orange County Classroom Teachers Association FB page is blowing up with complaints about him and the Dem mayor of Orlando, Buddy Dyer.
They are silent instead of ordering a return to Phase 1, curfews, and recommending school closures.
This will spill over into presidential politics if they dont watch out. Teachers in FL are angry and scared.
And the OCPS Board meets tomorrow morning to finalize school start plans. If Mayor Demings is silent, this will hurt Rep Demings.
