Editor, Thank you for allowing me to share my first political experience. I have always voted, but I never did much research on the candidates, until now. I joined #TeamFrasier after listening to Charles Frasier speak about Hinesville at the first kickoff meeting.

But please remember that football is only a game and that we are first and foremost an academic institution. (I usually say that when we lose to Florida. I don't say that on the rare occasions when we lose to the You-Know-Where Institute of Technology. That is because I go into a fetal position. It is hard to say anything meaningful when in a fetal position.)
