MIDTERMS
DC
PENNSYLVANIA
OREGON
NORTH CAROLINA
NEW YORK
  • New York elections not just about Cuomo (by: DAN MARGOLIS, People's World - CPUSA) Barron is right in charging that Cuomo is banking on the vote of the Black and other minority communities in New York State without planning to deliver on their needs and concerns. But the elections are not simply about the current Democratic ticket; more important is which block of social forces will gain supremacy this fall, those around the Democrats or those around the Republicans.
  • No Talk of 2012 During Obama, Bloomberg Golf Outing (By Jill Colvin, DNAinfo)
  • Commentary: The Rhetoric of Hate (by Rosemarie Robotham, Essence magazine) We have a Black president, and we may or may not agree with what he does, but the fact is, the purveyors of hate are whipping up a frenzy of frightening proportions and using him as their poster child. It's on the rest of us to meet the voices of hate and take back Martin's Dream. Oh yes, we can.
NYC CHARTER REVISION
  • Mike Long Slams Term-Limits Referendum (BY FRANK LOMBARDI, Daily News/Daily Politics)
  • Charting revision (LETTER from Matthew Goldstein in NY Post) I write to clarify the work of the New York City Charter Revision Commission and the ballot questions that voters will consider on Nov. 2
