I will hope that the people here have had enough of Republicans. The last 12 years have been a downward spiral since poor turnout in 2010 allowed Repubs to gerrymander the state. Poor turnout again in 2022 resulted in Repubs taking over the state Supreme Court which immediately reheard a gerrymandering case and reversed the ruling. A turncoat Dem just allowed the state Legislature to override the Governor's veto of a drastic anti abortion bill.

Republicans are destroying the public schools and attempting to ruin the well respected and academically acclaimed University system.

People have to come out and vote. They must.
