With all due respect, there have been no successful grand duchies in the history of the world, and it's my firm belief that the Northeast is the best region. This bill goes against my convictions and my pride for my region.

With 74% in, Sullivan and No again slightly increase their leads.  I'm surprised that the AP hasn't called the Republican Senate race for Sullivan.  Practically everything that's out is from rural Bush areas that don't have many votes, let alone Republican votes.

Hillary can deliver the Congress to the Democrats, then you can teabag her from the left and force her to sign laws to her left. That's all you should want out of a President if you are a progressive.

I think this is fair point -- the way to get a progressive President Hillary Clinton is to elect a progressive Congress -- admittedly a difficult assignment given the gerrymandering in U.S. House districts.  But I consider judicial nominations a big deal and that is hugely impacted by the makeup of the U.S. Senate.

Back in 2008 many people were hoping that President Obama would be some liberal hero/magician once in the Oval Office.  History and experience should make them more realistic.  

The first step to get a progressive President Hillary Clinton is to start looking for random people with the name Hillary Clinton.

There actually aren't that many Asians and there are basically zero blacks or Hispanics.

What's your source for this? I'm at a major tech company right now and there are more than two dozen people on my side of the floor. I'm literally the only one who was born in the United States.

Obviously there are a lot of Asians in tech, but it's a very bad sign if only 1 out of more than 2 dozen employees is American born. A good company should have a healthy mix of American and foreign born. And not all foreign born tech workers are Asians.

None of this is particularly meaningful, in any case. Honda won by a large margin in the primary and he will win by a large margin in the general election. This election isn't directly analogous to the election in Hawaii, but the comparison is useful to make, because like Hawaii this district is majority-Asian and consequently strongly pro-incumbent. For Khanna to win, voters need a good reason to vote Honda out, and they have nothing of the sort.

One of Khanna's strategies here has been to court the Indian vote, which is substantial but significantly smaller than the Chinese vote. In a matter reminiscent of politics in the home country, his campaign mailers trumpet his grandfather's participation in the Quit India movement. There's no actual way of reliably measuring the Indian vote since Indians do not live in their own separate areas, but if I may draw from anecdotal evidence Khanna has largely failed in this regard. Indians are just as pro-incumbent as their Chinese neighbors.

Well, Khanna is certainly trying to play the race card for all its worth. "Don't let Ro Khanna outsource our jobs" is supposedly racist.

That is actually racist.

Umm, what? Was it racist to call Carly Fiornia an outsourcer, too?
