It’s that time again. In between getting fired up for presidential elections, we’ve got to contend with midterms, that special season in which the electorate tend to express their preference for party ideology, rather than presidential candidates.

Her journey consists of 40 minutes walking, and 35 minutes on two buses. 

Each night she goes to Bothell, Paulson-Quick takes two dance classes, totaling two and a half hours.
