I guess this is sorta a 2022 election, but the primaries for it are already kinda starting.

St. Louis lawyer who waved rifle at protesters running for Senate in Missouri
Mark McCloskey joins a Republican primary field that includes former Gov. Eric Greitens.
https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/electi ... i-n1267873

Mark McCloskey, the St. Louis lawyer known for brandishing a rifle at Black Lives Matter protesters outside his home last year, announced his run for the Senate in Missouri on Tuesday.

McCloskey, a Republican, announced his candidacy on Tucker Carlson's Fox News program. :roll:

"I've always been a Republican, but I've never been a politician," McCloskey told Carlson. "But, you know, God came knocking on my door last summer disguised as an angry mob :roll: , and it really did wake me up."

McCloskey said he was inspired to run for office as he was rallying for former President Donald Trump. :roll:

[snip]

Greitens, who also declared his candidacy on Fox News, has striven to align himself with supporters of Trump. He has tapped Kimberly Guilfoyle, a former Trump campaign aide who is Donald Trump Jr.'s partner, as a national campaign chair. He is also a frequent guest on a daily podcast hosted by former Trump adviser Steve Bannon. :roll:

[snip]

McCloskey and his wife, Patricia, made national headlines in June when they waved guns at people in their neighborhood who were peacefully protesting police brutality and the city's mayor after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody.

Their actions made them heroes in some GOP circles and earned them a speaking slot at Trump's Republican National Convention. :roll: They later pleaded not guilty to two felony charges. Gov. Mike Parson, a Republican, has said he would pardon the couple if they are convicted.

[snip][end]

Should be an interesting primary. Guess McCloskey and Greitens will try and out-Qcumber each other.

Runoffs set in two Georgia House special elections

Voters in two Georgia House districts will have to wait another month to learn who will be their new state representatives after candidates in special elections in Cobb County and south Georgia failed to get more than half of the vote.

2021 New York City Primary Election Results

https://www.ny1.com/nyc/all-boroughs/po ... on-results
I have to sadly report Paperboy Love Prince of the Suburbs got only under 1% of the vote.

Paperboy is nonbinary and as such I can only say they were a very interesting candidate.

Image

Paperboy often appears wearing a Gameboy Advance as a necklace.

[from Wiki]
Prince's campaign manager is 13-year old student Theo Demel, who believes that homework is unconstitutional.[1] The campaign's goal is to raise $2 million. Part of the fundraising strategy includes busking outside the Myrtle Avenue station in Bushwick, Brooklyn.[3] The campaign's major policy points include fighting poverty and providing more housing for New York City residents.[14] The campaign hosted weekly free food giveaway events, giving away food donated by churches to whomever happened to show up.[5]

In May 2021, Prince challenged their electoral competitor Andrew Yang in both a basketball game and rap battle at Tompkins Square Park.[15][16][17]

One of the criteria for joining the city's mayoral debates is fundraising a minimal amount of money.[18] Prince was among the candidates who met the criteria to appear on the ballot, but did not meet the criteria to join the debates.[18] While Prince was not inside the building to participate in mayoral debates, they were with the crowd outside, rallying attendees from a bus known as the "Love Tank".[19][20] Prince's performance outside the debate included singing about affordable housing.[21]

A writer for Harvard Political Review said that Prince's campaign could shift discussion about what sorts of political policies are acceptable to discuss and also shift the perception of the electability of minority candidates.[22] A writer for The Red Hook Star-Revue said that Prince was a candidate to take seriously.[23] That paper also endorsed Prince for mayor.[24] Trevor Noah of The Daily Show showcased Prince's idea that police should reward people for doing good as an alternative to spotting violations.[25]

[snip][end]

No winner's been declared, this is a complex tallying system of rounds that could take a while, but at the moment the highest tallying candidate was Eric Adams, with roughly 31% of the vote.

Curtis "how do you like my beret" "Guardian Angels" Sliwa won the Republican primary outright already. Incidentally, he was not a Republican until this year, as of last year he was still part of the Reform party, and a NeverTrumper. He has also been a longstanding loon in his own right on conservative talk radio.

East Bay Assembly Election Headed to Runoff With Mia Bonta in Lead

Mia Bonta, the president of the Alameda Unified School District's Board of Education, opened up an early lead on Tuesday in a special election to succeed her husband Rob in the state Assembly. But early returns from the 18th district, which includes Oakland, San Leandro and Alameda, showed Bonta falling short of the majority vote needed to avoid a runoff later this summer.

Bonta captured 37% of the vote in the last results of the evening released by the Alameda County Registrar of Voters.
