Pennsylvania looks like it’s breaking away in terms of who is leading but we’re not in the clear yet.
Our organizer told us that Allegheny County is one of the most important counties in the country. If Hillary doesn’t win Allegheny County, she probably won’t win PA. And if she doesn’t win PA, well, I don’t even want to think about it.
Another reason why PA is a special case is because 1.) we do not have early voting 2.) voter ID laws were struck down here and 3.) it’s an open carry state. That’s right, Trump motivated poll watching ammosexuals can carry their guns into the polling stations. Isn’t that special?
The cumliminstion of these three things means that minority voters won’t be able to trickle in to a polling station early. No, we’ll all be voting on the same day, during the same hours were there will be concentrations of voters in particular spots throughout a diverse city and county. And because there is no voter ID law, the ridiculous accusations of voter fraud will get even louder. And then there are the Donald’s droogs looking for fun.
Hell yeah I’m nervous. But it’s not going to stop me helping with the GOTV efforts.
So, there’s that…
Update: The Washington Post wrote a beautiful, enthusiastic endorsement of Clinton based on her own merits. I read it on the bus and it brought tears to my eyes. Highly recommended.
