    Until the filing period closes, candidates who have made gestures to a run are included. Some of these may not run, while others are likely to jump in.


    When Assembly member Brian Maienschein changed party registration from Republican to Democrat on January 24 only fifty-one days into the 2019-20 Legislative Session, jaws dropped and headlines were made. Rumors were abound about what the Democrats were giving him for the move and lots of other theories.

    I was surprised as much as anybody, although I knew that Democrats weren't all in on the race. Yes, lots of labo . . .
