Will this election never end?

Soon and very soon. December 10 is the day Louisianans vote for a senator in a run-off between Democrat Foster Campbell and Republican John Kennedy.

Yeah, I know, I know. There really are people who will vote for a Republican named John Kennedy just because his name is John Kennedy. It’s those pesky “undecideds.” This election season went on for seeming decades and still there were undecideds walking into the polling booth.

There will be those people again on December 10 in Louisiana.

Mike Pence is trekking down there this Saturday to try to convince as many of them as possible to vote John Kennedy.

It’s important. The upcoming Senate right now has 51 Republicans and 46 Democrats. After the December 10 run-off, there will be a 52/46 or a 51/47 split. So, either a six point lead for the GOP or a 4 point lead. Four is easier to overcome than six. It could matter. It does matter.

Mike Pence thinks it matters a lot or he wouldn’t be taking time out of his Governoring, his transition-teaming, his Carrier-fixing, and all his other important jobs to fly down to Louisiana to make the case for Mr. Kennedy.



Sharon Hambrick grew up in Fundamentalist Christianity and still “defaults” Fundy much of the time, to her own consternation. A licensed California lawyer, mother of five, wife of one, writer, inveterate road-tripper, and burgeoning feminist Democrat, Sharon wept away November 9, but woke up on November 10 determined to do something. When the idea of a Pence Watch was presented to her, she eagerly hopped on board.
