    Would there be special elections in DC? Wait until 2022? From what is known about the mayor we'd want her to run, no?

    I think she would run. I would imagine it depends on how long it takes to happen. If it happens later in 2022, I think waiting until 2022 could make sense. Might also depend on what the dem majority is. A special election would seem to make the most sense though. Also House of reps seat. The senators the main draw though.

    It’s remarkable to think that Virginia was arguably the most racist state in the country just 50-60 years ago.

    Virginia actually ceased all public education for a year rather than comply with Brown v Board of Topeka. They chose to have no schools rather than integrate them.

    Virginia banned interracial marriage into the 1960’s until Loving v Virginia in 1967.

    There are.Virginians alive and voting today who lived through this time.

    If you think about the time since Super Tuesday and today, it just goes to show how fucking bad and unpopular Trump is as the president. He’s campaigning, less than three weeks until the election, against Joe Biden, in Georgia!

    This is a lie. Both my parents and all my uncle and aunts who were school aged during that time went to public school in VA and never had a year interruption because of that decision.

    Some school systems did it (most notably Prince Edward County, which shuttered their public schools for more than a year), but to say every public school in VA did it is a Trumpian level lie.

    With COVID and how most everyone has strong thoughts about Trump, I don't know what can be determined from this. But I'm happy to take it as a good sign as it doesn't hurt anything to be optimistic.

    Governors race. Shifting suburbs in two metros. States always get polled in general cycles.

    Missouri used to be a paradigm swing state. Had a long record of voting Democrat statewide. Remember it being heavily contested in 2000.

    My Mizzou friends have lamented in the past few years how red the home state has been turning. These newer polls give some hope. The people have voted for two referendums that will unfuck the gerrymandering. The state GOP is fighting like hell against it.

    If it ever goes through, I think it will go a long way to put Missouri back in swing state status.

    The 1956 legislation allowed the state to close any school district facing a federal desegregation order.

    Virginia passed a state law allowing the segregationist governor to close any school that desegregated.

    The fact that some schools did not desegregate and stayed open is irrelevant to the actual state law against desegregation, which did in fact close schools.

    I think we just having a disagreement over what you meant by your initial post. I thought you said all schools did in fact close. What you meant was that it was going to be an option in the future.
