What does that have to do with politics? Well, the baseball season is interminable. Spring training lasts six weeks, then the regular season is 162 games long and then the playoffs start. A seven-game World Series wouldn't conclude until October 30.
But when the final out is recorded, we still won't have made it to Election Day. Voters go the polls on November 4. Politics, therefore, has the longest season of any major American sport.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
