The current meme making the rounds (presumably from the Adelstein campaign) is that Democratic women are leaning hard toward Stan (and away from Katus) which means that you need to vote for Stan to keep Elli from winning.
Problem with that theory is... I don't know a single Democratic woman that is for Stan. Not one. (And I know quite a few Democratic women.)
My recommendation: stay out of the Stan/Elli fight and return our moderate, well-spoken, team player Tom Katus to Pierre.
