Bubba is stopping in Flint to campaign for Peters and Schauer: http://woodtv.com/2014/10/22/bill-clinton-visiting-flint-to-campaign-for-dems/

This is interesting: http://www.mlive.com/auto/index.ssf/2014/10/gov_rick_snyder_signs_anti-tes.html Rick Snyder signed a bill that would prevent auto manufacturers from selling automobiles directly to consumers at retail in Michigan. Most people think this was directly targeted towards Tesla, who does exactly this.

And this is absolutely awesome: http://www.deadlinedetroit.com/articles/10617/attorney_richard_bernstein_in_lead_in_supreme_court_race_poll_shows#.VEe57yLF8Xs

I can't imagine that anybody else is polling the Supreme Court races. For those who aren't familiar, the Sam Bernstein Law Firm is based in Farmington Hills and specializes in personal injury cases. For years, they've been notorious for flooding the airwaves with awkward commercials. These commercials have only gotten more awkward since the kids joined the firm.

The Detroit Tigers and Detroit Red Wings broadcast from the 1-800-CALL-SAM studios, and their commercials air during sporting events constantly. I encourage you to find some of their commercials on YouTube.

I'm sorry, but this is coming into a dangerous ground. Many personal facts (including, but not only, private religious convictions) are simply not relevant to someone's performance as a politician, as evident in many examples of past and present leaders. And I don't like an idea of people's votes being determined by such reasoning as "hmm, he's a Catholic (or whatever else), so it may theoretically affect his policy". I know it's not what you said, but many other people would be inclined to follow this path.

You might very well be right on how we should evaluate a politician.  On the flip side a politician has put himself or herself in the public domain and his or her religious beliefs are part of profile to be scrutinized by the public.  One can say all day that the general public should not not certain parts of the profile in making their judgement but it is reasonable to ask about it and it is reasonable for the politician to reuse to answer and the voting public draw their own conclusions about that behavior.

FWIW, Karl Rove just bought $820K in tv ads there.

Soon-to-be-Auditor Keller is going to be the next Governor after Martinez. You heard it here first. He probably should have ran this year. Aragon was the favorite as the Hispanic and being ticketed on Martinez coattails but Keller has been ruthlessly impressive hitting the local news circuit weekly and making people care about the race for Auditor when normally nobody does.

Moody's just downgraded Petrobras' credit. It's also been learned the investigation into Petrobras wrongdoing reached the US as the SEC is supposedly looking at it.

I saw that.  Since the market cap of Petrobras is still pretty high this did not really affect the market prices of the bonds I hold which I really plan to hold until maturity anyway.  Of course going forward if these trends continue the price will fall which does not matter to me giving I am holding until maturity but will make it costlier for Petrobras to borrow money in the international market.

Section subsection 2 is crazy.

If taken literally it would mean that the government couldn't enforce a regulation ensuring that food was actually safe to eat.

Here's the report for the first day of LA early voting. I know its super early, but, blacks were at 31% of the ballots cast, which would be good for Landrieu if it holds.
