Ronchetti danced the dance last time - resigning the post the day before he formally became a candidate, to maximize air exposure. Expect him to do the same this year if he runs. And as he did for his Senate run, expect him to mouth Trumpist talking points, while avoiding saying Trump's n…

RE Texas breaking away from rule in Mexico City - it was much less about a local resistance to autocratic rule from the Mexican capital, and much more about transplanted Americans (most of them illegal immigrants) fighting to own slaves and run slave-dependent plantations. They were effec…
