New Jersey’s senator was every where. He was going to be noticed even when the moderators were speaking to someone else. He owned the moment when he spoke about gun control.

Julian Castro is the most googled man in America this morning. The 44 year old former Mayor of San Antonio, Texas has presence, poise and true grasp of the issues. He also has a twin brother Joaquin Castro who was in the House for ten years. Through the night Castro and Booker tagged teamed Beto O’Rourke, with Castro body slamming him on immigration. Castro looked America in the eyes and said we all should be pissed about the father and daughter drowning in the Rio Grande river. Just close your eyes and imagine a Mexican American running against Donald Trump . Watch the poll numbers and his coffers rise this week.

The former Golden Boy from El Paso, Texas faltered terribly yesterday.  He seemed to stumbled and fumble on issues. Of all the candidates, he looked the most uncomfortable.  Perhaps relying too much on rehearsed responses. To make matters worse has was tagged teamed by Booker and Castro with his fellow Texan leveling the fatal blow on immigration.

New York Mayor came out of the gate swinging.  The big noise from the big Apple isn’t  popular in his city.  Last night it was clear Bill De Blasio he would not be ignored.    He fought for every minute of airtime.  He’s hoping to find love outside the five boroughs.

*To Qualify for the Debates Candidates……..
1. “Earning 1 percent in three polls approved by the DNC.” The Atlantic defined this rule as “three separate national or early-state polls.” OR:
2. “Receiving donations from 65,000 people, with 200 in 20 different states.”
Thirteen candidates hit both of those benchmarks, but a candidate only needed to meet one or the other to qualify. Those who met both benchmarks are Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Beto O’Rourke, Pete Buttigieg, Andrew Yang, Tulsi Gabbard, Cory Booker, Marianne Williamson, Jay Inslee, and Amy Klobuchar.

____________________________________________________________________________________________

Amy Klobuchar couldn’t get through the pack. Tulsi Gabbard was even less successful. Jay Lnslee ,Tim Ryan and John Delaney made noise during the debates however, they weren’t memorable.

Big city fella, Born and Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Lived in New York (a part time New Yorker) for three years . I have lived in the Sacramento area since 1993. When I first moved here, I hated it. Initially found the city too conservative for my tastes. A great place to raise children however too few options for adults . The city has grown up, there is much to do here. The city suffers from low self esteem in my opinion, locals have few positive words to say about their hometown. visitors and transplants are amazed at what they find here. From, the grand old homes in Alkali Flats, and the huge trees in midtown, there are many surprises in Sacramento. Theater is alive is this area . And finally ,there is a nightlife... In.downtown midtown, for the young and not so young. My Criticism is with local government. There is a shortage of visionaries in city hall. Sacramento has long relied on the state, feds and real estate for revenue. Like many cities in America,Downtown Sacramento was the hub of activity in the area. as the population moved to the suburbs and retail followed. The city has spent millions to revive downtown. Today less than ten thousand people live downtown. No one at city hall could connect the dots. Population-Retail. Business says Sacramento is challenging and many corporations have chosen to set up operations outside the cities limits. There is vision in the burbs. Sacramento has bones, there are many good pieces here, leaders seem unable or unwilling to put those pieces together into. Rant aside, I love it here. From the trees to the rivers. But its the people here that move me. Sacramento is one of the most integrated cities in America. I find I'm welcome everywhere. The spices work in this city of nearly 500,000 and for the most part these spices blend well together. From Ukrainians to Hispanics and a sizable gay community, all the spices seem to work well here. I frequently travel and occasionally I will venture into a city with huge racial borders, where its unsafe to visit after certain hours. I haven't found it here. I cant imagine living in a community where there is one hue or one spice. I love the big trees, Temple Coffee House, the Alhambra Safeway, Zelda's Pizza, Bicyclist in Midtown, The Mother Lode Saloon, Crest Theater, and the Rivers. I could go on and I might. Sacramento is home.
