¡Buenos dias! Yes, the awards have been postponed yet another day. Scheduling pods is not easy and neither is getting headshots of nominees! Anyway, we should have two great pods tomorrow!

I'll write the code for the SD28 special as soon as Gavin calls the special. Candidates also can't open a committee or file a statement of intent until the special is declared.

Meanwhile, California Democrats have a message for presidential candidates blowing off the bilingual presidential forum on November 16, and it's very much NSFW. Are you effing serious, Biden and Warren?

To be honest, I don't have a candidate yet and most of you know that I'll be voting for a Dem nominee. I have swag from Kamala, Pete, and Cory. Kamala will be saved for 2022 re-elect, and the others are just cool political memorabilia ("BOOT BOOT EDGE" and "We Rise").

Please, and I have emailed you, if you were a nominee, send me a head shot. If you don't, it's all about me and post-shower dancing.
