  1. News I’ve been expecting and was happy to see:

    Initiative 89, would ask voters to place some of those protections [for health care/abortion access] into the Colorado Constitution.

    “We turned in 232,000 signatures,” said Karen Middleton, the President of the abortion access nonprofit, Cobalt, one of the groups spearheading the effort….

    Supporters had to submit more than 120-thousand valid signatures, and because it’s a constitutional amendment, a certain percentage must come from each of the state’s 35 Senate districts. 

    An initiative seeking to ban abortion will not appear on Colorado’s ballot in November after the campaign failed to collect enough legitimate signatures to qualify.

    The campaign behind Initiative 81: Protections for a Living Child says it collected “tens of thousands of signatures” but fell short of the 124,238 it needed to turn in by April 18.

    1. …so only 106 to go to grab the majority of the majority! (assuming we’d set out the vote).  They only gathered up a total of 94 votes this morning on the floor vote. Math isn’t their strong suit.  

      We only control one chamber and I barely control that one! The Senate won’t take up our legislation and the President wouldn’t sign it. I need Democrats to do the work of the people.

    2. I can't keep track of the circus freaks without a program. Is Gosar the one who thinks being a dentist makes him an expert on . . . well, just about everything?

  2. …or maybe Trump's stock is being manipulated by reality? This morning one analyst opined the fundamentals of $DJT should reflect a share price closer to $5.50. 

    Trump Media warns Nasdaq of suspected market manipulation

    The company, which is majority-owned by former President Donald Trump, is down by around 50% from the all-time high it set on March 26, the day after it merged with a blank-check acquisition company to go public.

    1. Yup, it appears Trumpanzees are rallying around the stock to "prove" it's not just a scam.  Volume was 14 million shares today — double the historical average — and it's recovered almost $10 per share since yesterday.  More sheep for the slaughter.  The stock is hoovering up potential campaign donations in the doomed effort to support this stock for another 6 months before Trump can cash in.  Afterhours trading is down again.

  3. Sec of State makes the next announcements on candidates' signature petitions.

    • "Joe Granado, Republican candidate for District 3, submitted 1,069 valid signatures, failing to meet the signature threshold."
    • "Floyd Trujillo, Republican candidate for District 4, submitted 1,084 valid signatures, failing to meet the signature threshold."

    The not-yet-updated list of all candidates who were using signatures to get on the ballot is at https://www.coloradosos.gov/pubs/elections/vote/primaryPetitionCandidates.html

    1. So, no more than 7 Republican candidates possible in the CD4 primary. Still waiting on the Sec of State's verdict on 2 petitioning candidates.
