Redraw has been mandated by mid-August.

Wonderful! Smiley

Actually, this is probably awful. Sure, we might get another House seat out of it, but it means the Legislature will be called into special session to redraw the maps. Legislators, including vulnerable Democratic incumbents (Clelland, Zimmermann, Danish, Sachs), are forbidden from fundraising during session. If GOP leadership in the Legislature causes the session to drag on for a few weeks, we could see a fundraising gap open (or, in most cases, widen further) in those races, and if the Republicans pick up 1 State Senate seat and 5 House seats they've got a supermajority in both chambers and the Governor's race was for nothing.

I honestly don't think anyone here actually LIKES either of these guys, unlike how some here fantasize about another President Clinton and such.

I know SJoyce loves Crist, he'd probably support him even when he was a republican.

Yeah, that's probably true - hometown hero and all.

I'm saying Crist by 2-3 and a Sarvisesque performance from Wyllie.

Oh, isn't Shireen Baratheon around as well? I don't think she was ever killed off.

Also 11.

There is Mya Baratheon, as well.

Has something tragic happened to Loras?

I'd have the eight Sandsnakes to offer as well Tongue

... all of them? Or just one?

Out of curiousity, which Frey?  There are so many of them Tongue  

For that I reccommend the wiki. I've done a lot of research for the game, but I refuse to even take a look at Walder Frey's family and decide which one is actually open to marriage and so forth. That said, Roslin Frey is now Robb's Queen and Fat Walda is still there, xD

Oh gods.

Thank you all for your suggestions - I'll probably finish up some business and then head north, where there's a number of noted families with marriageable children. If I find nothing I'll return south.

Arya Stark is still around, right? Anyway, if you're looking for potential matches, there are always Freys around.

She's 11! Littlefinger is creepy but in the kinda-creepy-dating-a-teenager way, not the full-on dating-an-actual-child way.

Semi-OOC: is it just me, or do the Great Houses lack many marriage prospects? There's no Baratheons, Targaryens, Arryns, or Lannisters of marriagable age, the only Tyrell not yet married appears to be Elinor (who's from a junior branch and betrothed), the only Tully is a widow, the only Stark is missing - the only two options here are Arianne Martell or Asha Greyjoy. This'll be fun.

So, SSM is allowed in Miami and the keys?

The decision was immediately stayed, so not really.

During that interview, Tampa Bay Times reporter Adam Smith asked Jolly, “You’re OK if Florida said and voters decided same sex marriage is fine?”

“I am,” Jolly responded.

Not really news, but eh. More power to Jolly. If I'm going to be represented by a Republican I'm happy it's one of the less objectionable ones.

It'd be kinda weird to play as Euron after he killed me, so I'll be Baelish.

The only thing that'll kill discussion and the desire to run for re-election quicker in the Legislature than healthcare is another one of SJoyce's education bills. Tongue

Don't give me ideas Tongue

Darren Soto is my favorite of those options, with Val Demings a close second.

But A. it doesn't matter, and B. he's gonna pick Gelber.

Are you kidding? That is a really, really good one. It sends the message home to the average apolitical, undecided voter that Crist is only here to advance himself (as is Scott, but he at least hides it).

"If you vote for Charlie Crist, you'll get 4 great years and 2 championship rings. Charlie Crist is one of the best in the league."
"But then after four years he will run off to a lesser place (Cleveland and Washington)."

"And you still got a great four years." It's just not a well-thought-out ad.

As a side note, the Crist campaign is up with their first TV ad, Sunshine. Attention whoring, but I'm at around 20 seconds on the right in the blue shirt.

I'm surprised Euron would be able to ride a dragon.

Ugh, come on. Looks like our victory proved pointless. With Mance on the loose south of the Wall, I'm finished. Sad

At least you're alive Tongue The war has actually gone relatively well for the Iron Islands - but Balon, Victarion, and Theon are all dead. The only surviving Greyjoys are Asha, Aeron, and Euron.

Scott will defeat Nan Rich 54-46ish, and the Crist-Scott race is a toss up, though I give Scott the edge. I suspect it will be close enough that it will take a day or two to determine the winner.

I'd give Crist the edge in Crist-Scott, but that might just be personal hackery. Regardless, I think Sanchez is mostly right here.
