I am trying to stay up to see the results of the Connecticut governors race – the one I am most interested in today – but I just don’t think I am going to make it. So far, at almost 11:30pm, not even half the votes are in and Tom Foley (R) is leading Dan Malloy (D) by ONE percentage point, 50% to 49%. I knew it would be close, but not this close.
Voting is important, people. Now that the day has come and gone, I wish I had done more for this election. I wish I had stood on a street corner with a sign or worked some phone banks or even offered up my dirty ass car to give people rides to the polls. It’s important to vote, no matter who you vote for.
Me, I’m a proud Democrat. I think we need to keep this country moving forward. We need to do more for the common good. We need to help those in need. That’s why I’m a Democrat.
I really hope Dan Malloy wins tonight. I know that life will go on if he doesn’t, but certainly there are going to be some noticeable crappy changes in Connecticut if he loses.
Plus, I have it on good authority that if Malloy get’s re-elected he will move to legalize marijuana in Connecticut. 🙂
