2021 Elections, And Plans For Running For Office In 2022 Is Upon Us

Here we are, about a month out from the comparatively small number of elections taking place this November.

This includes the gubernatorial elections in Virginia and New Jersey; the Mayoral Election in New York City; and many other municipal elections in smaller cities.

The only real concern for Democrats is Virginia, where former Governor Terry McAuliffe is being challenged by Republican Glenn Youngkin.

The New Jersey gubernatorial race seems an easy win for Governor Phil Murphy, and the NYC Mayoralty race seems an easy win for Eric Adams.

Once these elections are over, the real competition for the Senate and House of Representatives seats in 2022 Midterms begins, as well as gubernatorial races, particularly the latter for Republicans, who plan to run for President, such Trump lackeys as Ron DeSantis of Florida, Greg Abbott of Texas, and Kristi Noem of South Dakota!

“Ranked Choice System” Being Used In NYC Mayoral Primary

Only 12 of the 50 states of the Union have a larger population than New York City, which began its Mayoral primary yesterday, using a “ranked choice system” method, which required a candidate gain 50 percent plus one to be the nominee.

With 13 candidates on the ballot, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams leads with 31.7 percent of the vote, but when this new method is put into place over the next few weeks, in theory, he could be defeated by second place finisher Maya Wiley with 22.3 percent of the vote, or third place finisher Kathryn Garcia with 19.5 percent of the vote.

Every voter could rank his or her second to fifth place alternative choices, and it will likely take a few weeks until two candidates are left, and one wins 50 percent plus one vote.

if Adams wins, which is likely, he will be the second African American mayor, after David Dinkins (1989-1993), and if Wiley or Garcia wins, it will be the first woman mayor and of a minority status.
