No. The state's Democrats, who were hammered flat after the state's political electoral realignment in 2010 are seeking every opportunity to make things difficult for Republicans. Adding more party names to the ballot simply serves to confuse more voters, aiding Democrats, in the eyes of party loyalists like Kyle.
That said, as a Libertarian, I'm glad to finally see the county's and state's ballots opened to more than just the same damned, two parties.
When local Republicans "betray" their party's interest or perceived principles, local Democrats can't restrain themselves in praising that person's "bipartisanship". Witness Mike Ritz, mentioned above. But let local Democrats behave the same way, and you get the slapdown that Harvey is getting. It's all a one-way street.
Is the presentation itself available online?
Point 1: So why was a "granite marker" placed at Auction/Willis and what does it mark? Why did the Colonial Dames place one there?
Point 6: So why was Union Avenue thus named? In honor of what?
You neglect to mention Cohen's Democratic challenger, Tomeka Hart.
State Senator Ophelia Ford then proceeded to disencrachise voters in her district by claiming an unpublicised "illness" that kept her from performing her duties most of her first session.
Tunica County NAACP executive Lessadollar Sowers was convicted of 10 counts of fraudulently voting. A couple of years ago, the ShelbyCo District Attorney's office prosecuted several people on vote fraud charges, then stopped. Democrats mutter darkly after every election since 2010 about conspiracies and plots but are content to leave the allegation unproved, but floating around. The Dems who still largely control government in the Mid-South are utterly uninterested in following after voting fraud.
I'm surprised they gave it up so easily, too. Though, as you noted, without a definte starting total it's still meaningless.
