Diana Becton is funded by George Soros, the globalist liberal commie. If she wins, that would be a tragedy.

Fortunately, they still have to count mail-in ballots, so there is hope.

Herman stay off the drugs... no wait you can't. Soros does more good for the local communities than the Koch brothers. Tell me, why is the GOP so afraid of Soros? Fox told you? He is an old guy that is willing to give money to the little people. Sound like the Koch brothers paying off Paul Ryan with $500k right?

Jerry, what’s your last name? Seinfeld? Because you’re funny.

You kids need to lay off the drugs, son.

Soros wants to get everyone hooked on drugs and welfare because then they are easier for the government to control.

This Diana Becton lady is a pawn in Soros’ plan.

So are you.

Do you know who have drug issues? mostly white families in the small/rural towns, I guess Soros must be sending free drugs and welfare there... You need to learn facts, read, and stop watching Fox entertainment, it's turning your brain to mushed. I am in the 1% in earning, and you are likely on Social Security, hope the GOP sweep in every state so they can just end all "entitlements" away from every senior citizen. I don't care who wins... I only care about my own pocket book.

Yes, yes, you frequently tell everyone on these pages how rich you are.

Well let me tell you son, you ain’t the only one here who’s rich.

Too bad being rich don’t make you smart.

You sound foolish when you say, “I only care about my own pocket book.”

Stop arguing and view the 60 Minutes interview of this George Soros. A Jew who rounded up his own people with the Nazis and sent them off to concentration camps and is proud of it, no regrets, is not exactly the kind of philanthropist that I trust. Watch the interview and learn the facts from the horse's mouth.

Why are you arguing about George Soros?

The real issue is that we have a DA who plagiarized her application and has little, or no, prosecuting experience being hand picked by the Board of Supervisors to replace a convicted felon who they also supported. Shame on the Board of Stupidrvisors.

Of course having her lead in this race doesn't say much for the voters either does it.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
