This is the most interesting thing I've heard from Mark. :P 21? Way above the 15 year average. What's Small's secret?

Gosh, I'd almost forgotten about them. KirstinElaine is right there, let the campaign for something begin! I'm all for that kind of stuff... as long as he doesn't cheat on his donations.

A Democratic incompetent to replace a Republican crazy? Small is obviously not a top tier candidate. His campaign will be as successful as his revote litigation.

It's unlikely that the Democrat, whoever that might be, can beat the incumbent Susan Brooks. The District has a Cook number of R+9, but Brooks won handily in 2018 with 56.8% of the vote to 43.2% for the Democrat. I suspect Small will be one of a number of wannabes on the Democratic side and that he will not get very much money based on his incompetence as a lawyer.

I think wannabe is a really good description of Small, probably the kindest thing I can think of to call him.

Isn't he saying he's running as a Republican to "take the GOP back"? Sounds like he's going to primary her. Maybe if he runs on his pro pot platform he can find some lit Hoosiers.

No, no, no, you don't get it. Brooks isn't running because she's a-skeered of the political awesomeness that is Mark Small. Now everyone knows to stay out of the race so Marky-Mark can have all the votes and save the Republic!

Small fully admits that he's not a Republican -- yet he's seeking to take "that" back. Surely that will impress the GOP primary voters. :roll:.

He then tweets a series of simplistic, unrealistic policy positions that might be great if you are a progressive who enjoys pie-in-the pandering. But they are not a serious attempt to seek a conservative party's nomination in a conservative district.

In sum, again like Taiz's :mememe: . But Taitz twice received three percent of primary voter (and once received 25 percent!); Small would be blessed to receive three percent in a incumbantless primary where people will be playing for keeps.

If anyone is considering a betting pool, I'll be very charitable toward Small's run. If he makes it onto the primary ballot, I'll take 3.6%.

Hadn't realized Brooks was NRCC head of recruitment, that's ominous... Maybe Mark Small has more clout than we give him credit for :lol:
Republicans fear campaign arm is stumbling in fight for the House
The NRCC chief tried to do damage control at a closed-door caucus meeting.
By MELANIE ZANONA and LAURA BARRÓN-LÓPEZ 06/20/2019 05:12 AM EDT Updated 06/20/2019 10:00 AM EDT

***
Adding to the internal drama, Rep. Susan Brooks (R-Ind.), head of NRCC recruitment and one of just 13 female lawmakers in the House GOP, stunned party leaders when she announced last week that she would retire at the end of her term in 2020. The surprise departure reignited questions about the party’s efforts to attract and elect more female candidates when Trump will be at the top of the ticket.

While the NRCC said Brooks would stay on as recruitment chair through the cycle, Democrats seized on the news to highlight the lack of women in the GOP conference.

“Losing Congresswoman Brooks, who was working hard to recruit women to run for office, underscores the problem Washington Republicans have created for themselves," said DCCC Chairwoman Cheri Bustos (D-Ill.).

In a round up story about GOP panic over retirements, POLITICO missed the really important point -- but Fogbowzers have known all along -- clearly, Susan Brooks retired because she was terrified to run against Mark Small.

Republicans rattled after surge of retirements
The retirements could complicate the GOP's attempt to retake the House.
By MELANIE ZANONA 07/31/2019 07:34 PM EDT

The House GOP has been smacked by a wave of retirements over the past few weeks — but some Republicans fear the worst is yet to come.

With the GOP relegated to the minority for the first time in eight years, a mix of veteran and vulnerable members have decided to call it quits instead of sticking around to see whether the party wins back power in 2020.

Over the past two weeks alone, five Republicans — including a member of the Republican leadership team — said they would not seek reelection. And that comes after Rep. Susan Brooks of Indiana, who leads recruitment efforts for the House GOP’s campaign arm and is one of the few Republican women left in the House, shocked her colleagues by announcing her retirement earlier this summer.
***
Brooks’ decision to leave Congress has also created an opening for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which is targeting her seat in the northern Indianapolis suburbs for the first time this year.

Gosh, the DCCC must be busting down Mark Small's door, what a break for the Democrats to have such a charismatic and realistic candidate.

Small's blog: Short history of our system of electors a/k/a electoral college:
In a diner a couple of days ago, a person said to me, “The electoral college sure worked in 2016, didn’t it.” Hers was a statement, not a question. I might have surprised her when I said, “No. And there is no ‘electoral college.’”

I have written about this matter before, but sometimes it is necessary to re-visit a topic. And the topic of the “electoral college” seems relevant.

There is no mention of “electoral college” in The Constitution. A “college” is “an organized association of persons. Rather, electors were intended, by the Framers of the Constitution, to act as a deliberative body to protect the nation from a person who was incompetent or corrupt. The number of electors apportioned to each State was based on the “Great Compromise”, whereby each State received a number of seats in the House of Representatives based on population and two seats in the Senate regardless of a State’s size. The electors never have acted as a deliberative body and the extension of the Great Compromise to electoral votes violates a concept our nation has accepted for decades - one person/one vote.

The Framers shaped the Constitution on premises that included distrust of, and the need for protections against, democracy and majority rule.
Article II of the United States Constitution addresses the executive branch of government. Article II, section 1 established the procedure for the election of the President. “Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in Congress...”
:roll:
There are few requirements in the Constitution for President. A person must: 1) be at least thirty-five (35) years of age; 2) be a native-born citizen of the United States; and 3) have lived the past fourteen (14) years, on a continual basis, in the United States.
