    Gary:

    I wonder how Matt is doing in Minneapolis. I have seen at least two (maybe more mailings) from Matt reminding them Otto was for laws like photo ID. If the amendment went down heavily in 2012 in Minneapolis then Matt should’ve done well. Either that or maybe this is a suggestion that the effort to mobilize against voter ID only came from getting Obama reelected and the marriage amendment.

    That mailing apparently didn’t work. Entenza’s political career is all but officially over.
