Thanks for Reading!
Josh Goodman says goodbye.
Well, I'd love to be blogging about Rick Scott's incredible resilience in Florida.
I'd love to writing about Vincent Sheheen's sleeper campaign in South Carolina (Seriously: We only have Rasmussen polls in the state, Sheheen has credentials both as a good-ol'-boy and as a reformer and Nikki Haley continues to get bad press. Are we sure he doesn't have a chance?)
I'd love to be writing about how Georgia's 50% rule means there's a very good chance that Nathan Deal will be the state's next governor. (Supposedly, a Democrat never has beaten a Republican in a statewide runoff).
I'd love to be figuring out whether Pennsylvania's population trends favor Republicans or Democrats ahead of redistricting. (Philadelphia and Allegheny County are stagnating population-wise, but so are some of the Republican-trending places in the Western part of the state.)
And, I'd love to be trying to figure out when a state last changed its name, as Rhode Island might do with Question 1. Has it ever happened before?
But, I'm sad to report that I don't have time to do any of that because today happens to be my last day with Governing. I've had great fun blogging over the last few years and I've learned a lot from all of your comments.
If you want to hear about my future plans, don't hesitate to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Governing Politics isn't going away. I'm told it will be stocked with content from NCSL and Stateline.org, which will put it in good hands.
Thanks so much for reading!
