    Back when Wake played at Nebraska, our group of guys stayed in St. Joseph’s, MO, about an hour north of KC and 2+ hours from Lincoln. We drove up for the afternoon game and passed a welcome to Iowa sign. None of us had any idea we had to go through Iowa to get to Lincoln.

    So not to go too far down the Omaha/Nebraska/Iowa rabbit hole, but ... the Missouri River separates Nebraska from Iowa in that area - with Nebraska being on the west and Iowa on the east. However, there is this tiny part of Iowa that is actually on the west side of the river and surrounded by Omaha. Evidently it was on the Iowa side of the river until there was a big flood in the late 1800s that changed where the river flowed. After that, it ended up on the other side of the river - but was still considered Iowa. It is basically the area that is just south of the airport, so if you are going to the airport from the south, you pass through about 20 seconds of Iowa.

    Same earthquake/flood is responsible for the Kentucky Exclave

    Blaire Erskine has one of her little video clips pretending to be Loeffler giving a speech, and it's hilarious. She sounds like a pod person.

    The Dr. Bill Bledsoe ads Jaime Harrison has been running for the last ten days or so are brilliant.

    LOL.

    “"Jaime has two opponents on the ballot, and we are making sure voters know the facts about each, and about Jaime, before they vote,” said Guy King, a spokesperson for Harrison's campaign.”

    A third party candidate could definitely help.

    sabato now has IA, CO, AZ and ME all lean dem which would get to 50. Has both GA and NC as toss ups.

    Really hoping a wave election would put Ds at 55 or so

    Now you understand why McConnell laughed in that debate while his opponent was trashing his COVID response. Looking cold-faced and squirming awkwardly at the camera is an even worse look than bizarre laughter.

    I agree with CO, AZ and ME. I'd still have IA as a toss-up and NC as a lean Dem. Bizarrely, Cunningham appears to be running slightly ahead of Biden, as is Kelly in AZ. I also agree that GA is now a toss-up. And SC, TX, MT and KS are lean Pubs, but they also bear watching. I'm now thinking the o/u is 51.5, and 53-54 is not out of the question. Also feeling good about Dr. Webb winning my R+6 district. He has a bright future and could well be a future governor and/or senator.

    Ha. But in fairness, those were not the only two options. That was a brutal take down. Wish I heard Perdue's response though.
