Oh yeah. When I read Thom Tillis (one of two idiots representing my state) said he “wouldn’t vote to eliminate the legislative filibuster”, I was like “you voted to nuke the filibuster on SCOTUS judges, STFU.”

Republicans plan on eliminating the filibuster if, god forbid, Trump gets back in the White House. It’s not an open secret they want to do it too.

They’re going to get shellacked if moderate GOP voters stay home or vote D out of spite. I hope they stay home though, that would put some seats in play.

It’s just as I thought. The same kind of astroturfing that gave the Tea Party movement credibility to win the 2010 midterms and wreck long term damage to our country.

Not just giving the Trump hush money trial the “both sides” treatment but also breathlessly covering the pro Hamas protesters at college campuses as if that will make the difference in six months.

I like visiting FL a lot, but even if it were as blue as California the summer heat is nigh unbearable plus some unfriendly locals. CT would be a blue state I would move to bc it’s on the East Coast, sensible taxation and easier to see family.

Rs would have to lose one or both state houses, plus both Senate seats, to get me to move there.

Rs only have a 1 seat majority in both AZ state houses. This is similar to what Virginia had going into their 2019 legislative elections— and Ds scored a trifecta! Imagine how much amped up it will be in AZ because it’s an election year.

Rick Wilson was delighted to hear the news, but he seems to think that Rick Scott, being able to self finance his reelection campaign, will be re-elected. Wilson used to be a FL R strategist but outspending your opponent doesn’t always work.

I think Rs are going to get blown out across the country. They’ll have to triage resources to keep vulnerable R Senators but even that may not be enough. Especially with Trump using the RNC as his personal legal slush fund.

We could use a brief D House majority and pass another reconciliation bill that guarantees funding for Ukraine and Israel— as well as keep the extended child tax credit.

I’ve been telling people who like and use VBM (in states where primaries are done) to request the Nov ones pronto. We need to make sure we’re hyper compliant and get the ballots back in pronto.

I recommend mail voters in OH and FL send their Nov absentee ballot requests now. And send the ballots pronto after making sure everything is good (so you don’t have any ballot curing issues). I think both states allow you to drop off ballots during the in person EV period too.

Rs keep gerrymandering our state every which way because they want to extend their power as much as possible. NC is a roughly 50-50 state & if the state and congressional lines were drawn fairly in a presidential year, Ds could win back legislative control. And Berger and Moore know it.

The NC GOP was in the hole for $72K while NC Dems have $4M last I checked. And they can’t rely on all dark money PACs because Rs have to defend gov seats in Montana too.

From your keyboard to God’s ears… we need to continue that momentum afterwards. Thom Tillis REALLY needs to go in 2026, and I think MAGA Ted Budd is toast since he’s up in 2028.

Will the dark money PACs have enough funds to cover the attack ad for state, congressional and Senate fund gap caused by Trump’s legal slush fund? Because if not… hoo boy, Rs are looking at a BIG loss this fall.

The night of 11/8/2016 was truly horrific. I could not sleep that night — felt like the people who didn’t vote stabbed me in the back. And it led to over half the events in the poll.

Moore and Berger are getting complacent, never mind that their state party is $72K in the hole.

When NC regains a D trifecta, there will be serious payback for these guys. I hope they’re still around to see the 12 wk abortion ban, the gerrymandering, the secretive laws, et al thrown in the garbage.

That’s not it. The majority of the 2022 midterms (save NC) and 2023 have seen candidates and issues Dems win by over 10-15 pts on average. That is unheard of.

I would love this year to be 2010 in reverse for Republicans, where they lose a lot more seats than they expected.

He may not say it now, but if he wins the primary and manages to unseat Cruz in November, Allred is going to get pressured into voting for SCOTUS expansion.
