Back in the day, politics would take the summer off. We would have the May primary, and it would be quiet until Labor Day. then, the campaigning and the commercials would ramp up until the November general election.
My friends, those days are over and, they are never coming back.
Campaigning for the general election began right after the last votes were counted after the primary. There are no more election season and election cycles. It's become a 24/7/365 business.
Expect to see the first presidential candidates dipping their toes in the water after we see the make up of the new house and senate on election night in November.
It never ends.
