It took awhile! However, Louis, especially, Bill and Allen contributing, vetted, made calls, did the real heavy lifting to produce this thoroughly researched list. In many cases, such as the DA race, and with Katherine Barger, we are between the devil and the deep blue sea! So, we hold our noses and exercise what’s left of our democratic process.
