Open Forum

A few things going on:

Jimmy Carter wants BRAC to spare the sub base. Dennis Hastert and Jimmy Carter is about as bipartisan as it gets.

Lt. Governor Kevin Sullivan's blog is apparently active again. He's a bit grumpy about people panning the lack of activity on his part, but I do respect the fact that he hasn't abandoned it entirely. I hope he keeps it going, and that other officials give blogging or something like it a shot at some point. The possibility of interacting with officials in a new and different format is too good to ignore.

Also, Republican Secretary of the State candidate Richard Abbate has posted a comment or two on this page, where his candidacy was originally noted. Scroll down to the end to see his comments. It's interesting mostly because I know of so few statements from him as of yet.

Anything else going on?

Rell has put out a flier touting her accomplishments for the state.

I wish Rell had stated the obvious a month ago and said she was running. At this point I'm not even excited about her candidacy, the constant speculation and wait has really killed any sense of anticipation (personally speaking).

I noticed in the article that she has apparently moved her decision date back until the end of September. The only reason I can think of to do this is that she wants to announce when campaign finance reform is agreed on.

Every day she waits, more money goes to Democrats.
