I think the thing is there is nothing else on the ballot. The pro airport people are way more likely than the negative ones as I think the negative ones may not like it but get that the writing is on the wall.
but the old anti-tax anti-government crowd shows up for every election

Yes. You can take as many as you need. I took 5+ yesterday, going back next week for more.

We got a pro-KCI voter guide from Freedom, Inc on Friday. So CFRG didn’t sway them this time.

So in other words, someone's freedom of speech check helped a special interest group decide a project was especially interesting

Also on Twitter, Justin Meyer (Air Service Director at MCI) mentioned the CEO of Southwest will be in town on Friday. He wouldn't say why but I am thinking it could be related to the new terminal push.
