Well, it’s more like a Soviet Politburo release on its committee members but it amounts to the same thing as the announcement came even prior to petition submission dates for candidates to run in an election.
Who needs elections? It’s already decided.
So here’s the HudCo official list which actually was released last month (true story). It came prior to the unfortunate incidents related to anti-Semitism the national party had to embarrassingly subsume but tone deaf isn’t a HudCo issue anyway, it’s a feature.
Of note, the official comment of support lists Ravi Bhalla. Which of course will be highly entertaining to the insiders who know differently.
Hey, Hudco has assumed control and they aren’t letting go. Prepare your wallets Hoboken.
