Brian writes, "The Mayday PAC is thinking of supporting the Independent candidate Greg Orman, who is running for Senate in Kansas against a lone Republican opponent. (The Democratic candidate withdrew); but we're only going to if we can raise $200k by midnight Monday."
"Some explanation came from the e-mail sent out by Mayday PAC:"
"We are now considering entering one final race. All eyes are on the Kansas Senate race. Greg Orman is an Independent -- not a Republican, not a Democrat -- and he could decide who controls the Senate. He is actively campaigning as a reformer against an entrenched incumbent who has taken millions from special interests.
Should we do this? If we raise $200,000 by Monday at 11:59pm, we will be in a place to firmly say: Yes, we're in."
Brian continues, "To me (and I have no inside knowledge of the board's decisions - I'm just a volunteer at this point) - this seems to be a test of whether or not Mayday PAC supporters think it is worth the risk of devoting resources an independent candidate, albeit one that is slightly ahead in the polls and which FiveThirtyEight gives a '67 percent chance' of Orman winning."
Help us hit $200k for Kansas

Impeached president and serial liar Donald John Trump said on Thursday that he has been tested for COVID-19 for a second time, and again received negative results. Trump this time took the newer, rapid point-of-care test and called it “more pleasant” than the first. Seems legit. President Trump says he tested negative for coronavirus using […]
Yoga studios are closed nationwide. The irony is that between the anxieties of the outside world and those popping up inside your very own home with everyone trapped indoors, there’s probably never been a time where yoga’s calming zen was more vital and needed. Rather than just throwing in the yoga mat and subjecting family […]
The workers aren’t inside their physical business space anymore. So why should business technology still be under that roof either? In fact, more and more businesses have been making this migration for a while now, moving all their digital infrastructure to the world’s two largest cloud services platforms, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft’s Azure.

Gather round, young and old — and hear tales of bygone days. Back in olden times, citizens would mass at a house of coffee, wherein skilled java alchemists would concoct special blends and apply artisanal wizardry to make each steaming chalice an appointment for the taste buds. Granted, said wizards, once known as baristas, were […]
