If you’re not in Corpus for the convention, then you probably don’t know that it’s really hot and very humid. According to one of our local experts, IT’S ALWAYS LIKE THIS. Which honestly makes me pretty sure that I won’t be coming here ever again.
So far, there’s extraordinarily little to report. The caucuses went fairly smoothly with the exception of SD 23 apparently which has always marched to the beat of it’s own dysfunctional drummer.
