Mississippi Voters Haaate Gov Tate Reeves But Too Afraid They'll Catch Democrat Cooties

Did we mention Brandon Presley is Elvis's (non-kissing) cousin?

Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves is awful, and most Mississippi voters know it. A Mississippi Today/Siena College poll from late April showed that the number of voters who'd prefer "someone else" to the incumbent cold mashed potatoes impersonator had grown from 57 percent to 60 percent. That should be good news for Democratic challenger Brandon Presley, who last we checked is "someone else." Unfortunately, he's also a Democrat, and Mississippi is Mississippi. The same poll showed Reeves, who has a 42 percent approval rating, expanding his lead over Presley, who has Elvis blood in his veins. In January, Reeves had a slim four-point lead against Presley with 14 percent of voters undecided. Now, Reeves is a full 11 points ahead, with just six percent of voters unsure if they should stick with the gross racist who imagines himself as a modern-day Clint Eastwood shooting brown people.

Democrat Donna Deegan Wins Jacksonville Mayor's Race In DeSantis's Florida. Now, That's A F**king Nice Time!

Why do they call it an 'upset' when we're so happy?

Florida has lately been a source of ongoing woe, so I admit I was a little choked up last night when Democrat Donna Deegan defeated Republican Daniel Davis in the Jacksonville mayoral race. The current Republican mayor, Lenny Curry, is term-limited out of office, and Davis was considered a favorite to win the Republican stronghold. Jacksonville has elected only one Democratic mayor, Alvin Brown, since 1993.

Jacksonville was also the most populous city (954,614) in the US with a Republican mayor. Now, that's Fort Worth, Texas (935,508).

Deegan, a former local TV anchor and founder of a breast cancer research organization, whooped Davis 52 to 48 percent. She is also Jacksonville's first woman mayor. Cherelle Parker made similar history in Philadelphia last night. (Parker technically only won the Democratic nomination for mayor, but Democrats account for 85 percent of the city's electorate. It's OK if she starts measuring the drapes.)

Republicans can't spin this as a fluke victory because Deegan ran against a MAGA extremist soft-focus loon like Kari Lake. Davis, chief executive of the local chamber of commerce, was considered a business-friendly "normal" Republican, and he'd crushed Deegan in fundraising by a margin of four-to-one. Yet Davis did embrace DeSantis-style positions on the LGBTQ community. He said he'd sign some gross loyalty pledge to the bigoted Moms for Liberty regarding education, medical care, and “moral upbringing of their children.”

The Philadelphia Mayor's Race Is Today, If Only Philly Voters Knew About It

There's still time, go vote!

Today, Philadelphia voters will select the Democratic nominee for mayor. Democrats account for a whopping 85 percent of Philly's electorate. A Republican will run against the Democratic nominee in the fall but they'll consider themselves lucky to pull in more than 10 percent of the remaining vote. That makes tonight's primary winner all but a lock for mayor.

This election is a big deal. Philadelphia's population of more than 1.5 million is greater than the US states of Hawaii, New Hampshire, Maine, Montana, Rhode Island, Delaware, both Dakotas, Alaska, Vermont, and Wyoming.

Yet coverage of this race has been muted, and the expected voter turnout is about 15 percent of eligible voters. Recent polls show the primary is a statistical tie among five candidates — Rebecca Rhynhart at 18 percent, Cherelle Parker at 17 percent, Helen Gym at 15 percent, Allan Domb at 14 percent, and Jeff Brown bringing up the rear at 11 percent.

Could Mark Robinson Become North Carolina's First Black Confederate Governor?

God, we hope not.

North Carolina’s Republican Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson is a vicious bigot who loves guns and hates gays. He compared queerness to "filth," and he declared before a Charlotte-area church congregation that "we are called to be led by men" not women." He launched his insulting and dangerous campaign for governor last month.

“I’m running for governor because we the people of North Carolina need someone who understands us,” Robinson declared to supporters in Alamance County. “We don’t need another politician who’s spent their life climbing the political ladder.”

Robinson was elected lieutenant governor in 2020 and is running for governor in 2024. He’s not just climbing the ladder. He’s practically sprinting to the top.

Polls show him as the clear frontrunner for the Republican nomination, in spite — if not outright because — of his extremist views that some pundits argue will alienate independents and suburban women in the general election. Republican strategists also worry that Robinson will "nationalize" the race for Democrats on account of how he's a big jerk.
