So Far

It’s a frustrating night. There haven’t been any upsets in states called yet, but seeing how close it is in Virginia, Michigan, and North Carolina is a bit worrisome. Florida is always a wildcard because, well, it’s Florida.

I’m not alarmed yet, but definitely frustrated that Trump is still in it by this point in the night.

George W. And Laura Bush Snub Trump, Vote For Downballot GOPers Instead

From Talking Points Memo:

Former President George W. Bush and former First Lady Laura Bush didn’t vote for a presidential candidate this year.

A family spokesperson spokesperson said the former first couple did not vote for either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, according to the Wall Street Journal.
CBS’s Will Rahn also cited a Bush family spokesperson who said the Bushes “left the top box blank and voted Republican downballot.”

The Bush family has been near-universally cool on Trump since the Republican nominee mercilessly attacked former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush during the Republican presidential primaries.

Unlike most of his fellow competitors, Jeb Bush never endorsed Trump, writing in May that Trump “has not demonstrated that temperament or strength of character. He has not displayed a respect for the Constitution. And, he is not a consistent conservative. These are all reasons why I cannot support his candidacy.”
