The most competitive race in Northeast Florida — the battle in plurality-Democrat House District 15 — continues to be an air war. Democrat Tracye Polson dropped her final bomb Wednesday. “When your opponent is a professional lobbyist, special interests can’t wait to falsely attack you,” Polson says in the broadcast spot.

This week in City Hall, a time capsule containing artifacts from 1960 was opened. Being it’s the 50-year anniversary of Consolidation, city leaders are (understandably) in a sentimental mode.

The primaries are now well behind us. The parties have unified. Ops for losing candidates have moved into other campaigns (or endeavors). If you pay attention, there is — at times — a crispness in the morning air. And while that coolness may be fleeting, it’s an augury of the inevitable march of time. The […]

“Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.” Those of a certain age will recall the Semisonic earworm “Closing Time.” It is also where we stand in primary season. We already know what races we are tracking election night. In some, there is enough confidence in the results to have a sense of what […]
