I had a couple of things I wanted to post about today, but I figured I’d be efficient and use a single diary.
LOOKING BACK: I just finished reading What Happened by Hillary Clinton, which I highly recommend. It is very readable and moves along quickly. While it is of course her take, given that it also struck me as remarkably even-keeled. She does talk about both what she could have done differently/better and what she felt she was up against. She also dispels some myths about her campaign which sometimes even get spread as gospel on BMG. (Yes, she did campaign plenty in the Midwest including keeping plenty of staff on the ground; yes, she spoke every chance she got about people’s economic anxieties – BUT HER EMAILS!)
LOOKING FORWARD: Yesterday was the deadline for towns and wards to inform the state party of their caucus times and places. That information can be found here. There is no longer a previous deadline by which you had to register as a Dem to participate and those who will be 18 by 9/18/18 may participate. If you don’t see yours it may not be posted quite yet, but hopefully will be shortly. Delegates elected should commit to convention Friday evening June 1st and all day Saturday June 2nd. Fee waivers are available and there are add-on slots for “youth”, minority, disabled, and LGBT persons. Candidates who get at least 15% of the convention vote will advance to the primary ballot.
