A conservative Latino’s view on politics. The battle in the governor’s race, between John Cox and Travis Allen to represent the Republican Party and be one of the top-two in the “jungle primary,” is dividing us. Allen voters embellish Cox’s flaws, while purposely ignoring Allen’s and are creating an irreparable wedge if one of them advances. Allen’s rhetoric is also …

Welcoming Mike Slater to San Diego by way of Jackson, Tenn. in a downpour on his second day seemed a bit of let down – mostly for me. “Welcome to sunny San Diego?” he asked grinning as he put out his hand.

We are lucky enough to embrace small bastions here on the Left Coast and in other blue states. Nevertheless, there is hope–and it lies in the Northeast with this instance.
