Re: President* Trump - *Impeached

I have to throw this tidbit in here: many years ago the relatives from England came to visit us in California. We took them to Yosemite. The relatives had never heard of Yosemite, and guessed that it was pronounced: YO-semite. IMHO, Trump is familiar with the word "semite" as he hates 'em. His eyes...

Still possible, but he's not making up enough ground. The latest:

ARPAIO, JOE 136,419 36%
CRAWFORD, MIKE 97,250 26%
SHERIDAN, JERRY 136,960 37%

541 vote difference. (Sheridan's largest lead yet.)
Thanks, Bob. :-D

If that means I have to go in person to early voting, I'll wear two masks. :mrgreen:
