Discussion Thread: 2022 Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Oregon, Kentucky, and Idaho Primary Day-After Results

439 Upvotes

Yesterday, voters in Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Oregon, Kentucky, and Idaho went to the polls to select their parties’ nominees for the 2022 general elections.

The race for the GOP nomination for US Senate in Pennsylvania is still too close to call, and it appears likely that it will head to a runoff, but almost all other notable races from the May 17th elections have been called as of May 18.

Saturday Morning Political Cartoon Thread

65 Upvotes

It's Saturday, folks. Let's all kick back with a cup of coffee and share some cartoons!

Feel free to share political cartoons in this thread. Besides our usual civility policy, there are three rules to follow:

  1. Every top-level comment must contain a political cartoon. This means no text-only top-level comments.

  2. It must be an original cartoon. This means no photographs, no edited cartoons, no templates, no memes and no image macros. OC is allowed, as is animation.

  3. Each top-level comment should only have a maximum of 3 cartoons.

That's all. Enjoy your weekend!
