Matchmaker, matchmaker, make me a match

This amuses me:
The CD8 DFL had a very long convention on Saturday,  After ten ballots, everyone promised to go to the primary.

Nothing especially unusual htere.

The unusual thing?  The DFL trucked a bunch of Latino activists from the Twin Cities to canvass for the Metro DFL’s chosen candidate.
CD8 is pretty vast -- it extends from the far northern suburbs all the way to the Canadian border. But it's primarily a place where the local politicians that matter are from Duluth or the Iron Range. So, of course you'd want Alondra Cano to pick the candidate. Hit the link for more -- it's Mitch Berg, so you know it will be a fun read.

As someone who'd love to see the 8th represented by a person who actually represents the district, I fully support the DFL allowing Cano to pick the candidate. Those whose values are aligned with moderate Democratic Party positions might disagree... :^)

A pox, chicken or otherwise, on both their houses.

You know what the DFL needs? Another rousing funeral! That will get the voters out!
