    1. Tamika Lyles just withdrew before filing deadline in Florida senate race!

    Just noted her Facebook announcement here…  It really is sad how MONEY in so many cases forces good candidates out of races!  We need to get BRIBERY (THAT IS WHAT IT IS NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU TRY TO LEGISLATE IT AWAY OR RENAMING IT SOMETHING DIFFERENT) out of politics!

    2. Add Scott Noren challenging Gillibrand for New York's senate seat

    He looks to be a good Bernie supporter as he notes on his campaign page that he’s the one that set up the “Upstate NY for Bernie Sanders” facebook site.  I found two such sites here, and both look good, so whether or not one is a fake copy or not, it looks good enough for me to see that he’s a good primary challenger supporting Bernie.

    This looks like his as it’s about page references his campaign site…

    This looks like the copy that was put in place for whatever reason.

    3. Hoping some folk notice before voting in tomorrow's primaries…

    Focusing this part of the thread on updates for states voting in tomorrow’s primaries (Indiana, North Carolina, Ohio, and West Virginia).

    I’ll start with additions for North Carolina.

    North Carolina:

    6th district – Adding Gerald Wong.  He looks like a good candidate who was inspired by Bernie as noted here:

    10th district – Adding David Wilson Brown.  He sounds like a good progressive:

    Cenk interviews him here, and notes he doesn’t have a primary opponent, but adding him nonetheless so when people are voting, they will see his campaign!
