Friend vs best friend
California's crowded field for governor was knocked down to two Tuesday, when voters picked Democratic Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom and Republican businessman John Cox as the winners of the state's primary. The contest had been watched closely because of the state's unusual system, in which the two candidates who receive the most votes advance, regardless of party. Tuesday's results mean a traditional match of a Democrat versus Republican. The peculiarity of the open primary saw two of the Democrats, Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom and former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, promoting Republican rivals to better their own chances. Gov. Jerry Brown, the state's longest-serving governor, is barred by term limits from running again and in all, 27 people ran to replace him in a state where registered Democrats outnumber Republicans 45 percent to 26 percent, according to the Public Policy Institute of California. Now that voters have chosen, meet the candidates for governor. … [Read more...] about It’s Gavin Newsom Vs. John Cox for California Governor. Who Are They?

Tweet or no tweet, as Trump now contemplates a retaliatory strike on Putin’s Syrian partner, it’s more clear than ever that Russia … [Read more...] about Trump vs Putin? Time to Be ‘Scared’
Yes, Tom Cairney was at Chelsea vs West Ham on Sunday, congratulations to those eagle-eyed viewers who saw him sat behind the Hammers dugout. People have been busy trying to figure out what it means for the Fulham skipper's future - he's been linked to David Moyes' side in the past so it must mean something that he just so happens to be watching one of their games only yards behind their dugout. In reality, the truth is far less exciting (isn't it always?) The fact is, him and QPR striker Matt Smith, who happen to be best friends, went along to watch a game of football that happens to be conveniently located close to where the pair live. Read More Latest Fulham news It also just so happened to be West Ham that Chelsea were playing. It's quite normal to see well-known faces sat behind the dugouts at Stamford Bridge - it seems to be the place where people who are in the public eye generally sit.
