QOTD (1/8/17)

“I’ve wondered why we didn’t have a caucus this week, or heard from the governor. I thought we would try to do something, but it doesn’t look like they are in any big hurry. Either the governor knows she has run out of time, or they have cooked something up between all the parties that they think we can vote on quickly.”
