End of week open line

Posted By on Fri, Jan 29, 2016 at 3:57 PM


Latest chatter from the campaign trail: Ted Cruz has pivoted his attacks to Marco Rubio after yesterday's Republican debate. Rubio, who's long seemed like the GOP's clearest option for a consensus alternative to Cruz or Donald Trump, has the Texas senator worried Rubio is finally breaking away from the second tier to become a real contender. Of course, that means Rubio's fellow second tier-ers (Bush, Christie, etc.) have every incentive to target him, too.

This seems like a great weekend to be anywhere in the nation other than Iowa.

Hey, also: Remember a week ago, when it was winter? Highs are in the upper 60s this weekend. Seems like a good time to share this nice shot — taken by a reader — of the River Market just before dawn last Friday.
