Mid Week Musings

     Starting to see those ubiquitous Byrne for Assembly signs crop up, prompting recollection in voter's minds about his close race in 2014.  Observers think he will win the three way GOP primary, but faces more dubious prospects in the fall.
     The top of the ticket must be important because the candidate class of the local GOP gets a rash over the mention of Donald Trump's name. Only bobsledder Finley says he supports him with no qualifiers or reservations. John Byrne was a Kasich backer as the right people were at his rally in April.
     What's up ? The woodchucks in the party want Trump but the dainties, and the elites along with the media dilettantes  have candidates wary of supporting the top of the ticket.
      A GOP old bull says in the AD116 race, Bill Sheridan is the better candidate, but Mr. Byrne has al the me-too lines, so he should get the chance to try again. I suspect that's how it turns out but we will see.
       Back to last night...when Bill Clinton declared that "in 1971, I met a girl !", I had to chuckle, as he met so many since.
       Oh and Hillary's newfound opposition to TPP ?  Looks like that's BS, as her buddy, the Governor of VA told supporters fast track must be passed in the lame duck session.

Byrne is working hard to get the seat he has no shot at. He is like JEB in that all the money in the world will not win the election for him. I guess its good for the sign industry.

He would win against Shelly's maid. But the vote will be split again, so the maid is back in bidness.

I know what your saying mayor but for the elites shying away is only saying VOTE FOR HILLARY..
My feeling is if they cant endorse the Donald then vote for people who will endorse him or just vote for Hillary...

He forgot to say he also carried on with his original girlfriend and many more after while the Beast looked the other way.

What a fine web they have woven!

Mayor, Up here in the big county, the Sheridan signs are cropping up at 4x the Byrne signs. Finley should just stay home and watch the TV that night. Sheridan is the only Republican in this race and people are starting to realize it now. Last time was a hold your nose and vote for anyone but Addie. Finley was the wrench in the works but Sheridan has a race on its way for the river district. If he makes it through the primary, Addie will be toast.

Sheriden the spoiler does not impress me. He was a no show at my hometown parade. Sorry old bill I'm voting BYRNE. He did show up.

If Trump would have mentioned meeting a "girl" dannies everywhere would be leaking all over the rug.

Sheridan signs everywhere in SLC, across every town

The signs are up because it is his home county. Unfortunately residence matters and plays into the hands of the dems. Hopefully the losers will back the winner so we can attempt to win the seat. The dems are much better at voting for the dem after a fight and the Republicans can't see that the remaining republican is better then the dem. They just see that it is not the guy I wanted.

Wow - harsh - yet, deserved - his words, he owns them, no one else does.

NY Daily News wants Trump prosecuted.

Wow Danny! Prosecuted for running for president? Just another hack statement. You ruined Live At 5 for many of us. Please stay off the noon show.

9:44 of course Byrne showed up!! He is the ultimate campaigner, will drive to Timbuctoo if he thought he could get one vote. Trouble is if he were to get elected--then what??? He 's at a loss unless someone tells him what to do.
