President Biden coming to my town today, Santa Cruz County, CA

I live in Rio Del Mar at Seacliff State Beach, one of the hardest-hit areas of the Central Coast.
The president is coming later today, I've seen his entourage's aircraft flying along the coast and he'll be at my location this afternoon after stops in Watsonville and Capitola.

Are there any DUers in Santa Cruz or Monterey Counties?

WHEN will we learn what McCarthy gave away to the other insurrectionists?

I am just guessing, any informed opinions are welcome to reply!

I imagine some of the concessions will be revealed with the reading of the rules, like the "one vote needed for motion to vacate" rule.

But others will never be known or can only be inferred by looking at who needed favors and which insurrectionists get to chair the various committees.

Are any journalists or pundits working on this, or any DUers?

I'm witnessing the destruction of a wharf on the central coast, and other things.

Here in Santa Cruz County we are seeing epic wind, waves, and rain as part of the series of atmospheric rivers.

The Capitola and Santa Cruz piers have been damaged and will remain closed and two hundred feet of the wharf at Rio Del Mar is gone.

Ask me anything, I'm watching it from my workstation at home.

Watch the wharf collapse at the 15 seconds mark of this video:

Predictit had McCarthy at just 41 cents to win right now.

I love following this page and had it running 24/7 during the tight senate races.

Betters are pretty good indicators of outcomes, it seems. I would love to see Jeffreys numbers higher.
