Mike's Blog Round Up
June 11, 2019

Mock, Paper. Scissors: She seems nice.

Shakesville: The Democrats’ dog and donkey show comes to Iowa.

Blue Mass Group: It’s beginning to look like Massachusetts GOP Governor Charlie Baker wants a third term. When will Democrats begin to do something about it?

Brad Delong: The South’s economy is going, well, south.

Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
"Red states of the South and other areas of the country are moving forward with pro-growth tax reform, while California and the blue states of the Northeast are doubling down on Obamanomics and European progressivism. Who will come out on top? Our money is on the red states and those wisely following their lead." (Arthur Laffer and Stephen Moore, on “The Red State Path to Prosperity,” March 27, 2013)
