You have to wonder about the people running our state government when they set an election before Labor Day, just at the end of August.
That's the case this year as we have the primary day next Tuesday, Aug. 26.
And the term primary is misleading. In some cases, where people from only one party are running, this is the actual election.
Party labels at this level are somewhat meaningless, yet we're saddled with those labels determining who can vote for certain candidates.
