- We did not know Presidential winner for certain before midnight on election nights in 1960, 1968, 1976, 2000, 2004, 2016. No one should pretend there would be anything historically unusual if that happens again in 2020. (By @BeschlossDC)
- Some facts about this Harris County drive thru voting suit (challenging over 100,000 early ballots): 1. The Texas Secretary of State (Republican) approved Harris County doing this months ago. 2. It‘s been publicly posted for months that Harris County would have this. 3. Drive thru voting was used by the Harris County for the primary elections earlier this year. 4. The plaintiffs (a Republican Activist and three Republican Candidates) waited until after votes were cast to challenge it. (By @Dan_F_Jacobson)
- Slowing the spread of this virus is literally in our hands. We need to continue to rely on common sense… I can’t stress this enough: Wear a Mask; Keep 6 Feet Apart; Avoid Large Crowds. (By @GovPhilScott)
- This year, using state accountability data for anything other than research and analysis purposes is pure leadership incompetence driven by stupidity, cruelty, greed, or some combination of the three. (By @LYSNation)

- Low standards never produce high results. (By @Leadershipfreak)
- Talk about rubbing folks the wrong way, Secretary of Education Betsy Devos, has been sued a staggering 455 times and lost more than she has won. As a Department of Education attorney who resigned says, “it was pretty clear they were not in the business of protecting civil rights.” (By @DerekWBlack)
- The distance between where you stand right now and where you want to be is measured by the changes you are willing to make in your life. (By @JohnCMaxwell)
