I don't think I like these open primaries. I haven't even worked on any campaigns this Spring but I feel exhausted anyway at the prospect of having to (not?) do it all over again! I wish we could get RCV on all the races and call it a day. Anyway. I, at least, am all done for my race for Democratic County Committee and I want to thank everyone who voted for me.
