US Senate Race Begins Games of Musical Chairs | Dan Walters | State and regional

Remember the game of musical chairs?

A group of chairs is assembled and the players – one more than the number of chairs – march around them while music plays. When the music stops, the players scramble to sit on the chairs and the player who can’t find one is out of the game. One chair is removed and play continues until there is only one chair and one winner.

It is a fun game when played by children. It can be downright violent, basically fighting, when adults play, especially after they’ve been drinking.
