I’m about to start my trek down to Tifton, where I hope to witness the election of Austin Scott to Congress. I hope wherever you are tonight, whether your candidate(s) wins or loses, you at least take a moment to appreciate that this experiment in democracy known as America is the worst form of government around – except for all others.
It’s been a long road, and one that I frankly hope is over with tonight. In reality, there will be a few races here or there, possibly some major ones, that will require a runoff. We’ll cross that bridge if and when we come to it. But for now, this one evening, let’s mark an end to this long, and often weird cycle. For most, the campaign is over. Tomorrow, we need to begin to focus on governing again.
I’m taking my laptop, but I doubt you hear from me for a while. My best to all of you, even the “and others, not so much”, and we’ll see you on the other side.
