My anticipation for the 2014 elections peaked the first week of November.
The focus has shifted to gathering signatures for judicial candidates, a few tasteless television commercials (Tom Cotton's mother really really loves him) and who's tweeting what and to how many followers who may or may not actually vote.
There are still a few names being whispered about town who may run for a position, districtwide or statewide. There 's still a little time to announce.
Will there be a swing in political party power in state government? How will the governor's race impact the House and Senate races? And locally, we're seeing judicial shifts, a new city attorney, and I'm still anticipating a few local officials to seek higher office.
Along with toys in his sleigh, let's hope Santa brings us a few more political announcements so at least each race is contested.
