Mitt Romney’s decision not to seek re-election to the Senate seemed to shock Democrats more than Republicans. Some on the left speculated that he feared a successful primary challenge from the MAGA crowd. Others thought his decision solely a matter of conscience. Republicans, on the other hand, had little to say one way or another but it is fair to assume that many if not most were glad to be rid of him.
This is an excellent take on the situation imho. I meditated this morning with a 94 year old British-American man who worked for the UN for his entire career, mostly in Africa. For the first time ever he was optimistic about the upcoming election, which surprised me. We'll see. I'm still pretty terrified that we're heading toward fascism.
Great points. Incredibly scary if Trump gets reelected. So important to get out and vote.
