I used to pride myself in voting for the individual I thought was best for the position regardless of party affiliation. I’ve had personal interactions with Cal Rampton, Scott Matheson, Deedee Corradini, Ted Wilson and Ralph Becker over the years. The current Democratic Party has strayed so far from those days when I had a chance to work with and vote for good Democrats.

I don't intend to vote for a single Democrat until they shape up and get back to a rational, civil dialogue from the leaders of their party. There are Republicans I didn't vote for and some I wouldn't vote for now. But as long as the Democratic Party is led by people like Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, Maxine Waters, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, etc., no Democrat wiII ever have my vote. These leaders have to be the absolute worst individuals in the swamp.
