The Democrats, their media allies, and various radical left-wing activists tell you that they care about the rule of law.

They think you are stupid.

The way they treated now Justice Kavanaugh is proof that these people are unserious opportunists who do nothing but lie.

CA Senator and VP nominee Kamala Harris is perhaps the most vicious political creature in recent memory. The disgusting smear campaign that she launched against Kavanaugh and his family is unforgivable. All Kamala Harris does is lie. @SenKamalaHarris @KamalaHarris

NY Senator Chuck Schumer, nasty as ever. @SenSchumer @chuckschumer

ATTN: disillusioned progressives rage donating & text/phone/postcard-banking for down ballot races. LET’S ORGANIZE. Here’s some strategy for big structural change in the Electoral College.

FLIP: #AZ06|#GA07|#ME02|#MN01|#MN07|#NC08|#PA01|#PA10

A THREAD 🧵
You’re likely familiar with the GOP & ALEC gerrymandering state districts, winning both House and Senate in 2010. Dems could effectively do the same

Here’s how:
Our key to electoral reform is through the states. If we focus on the districts listed above, we can flip STATES
Thankfully, due to the hard work of voters and lawyers such as @marceelias, gerrymandering is widely struck down, and redistricting is either complete or underway. We can use this to our advantage. For more info, @slaythedragon is a great movie (on Hulu).

NEW: Democrats are leading in #AZSen, #COSen, #MISen and #NCSen, according to our new polling of likely voters, while #GASen is close to tied, ~100 days out, tracking close to Joe Biden.

Much more on our fresh state data: morningconsult.com/2020/07/28/sen… Image
Our state-by-state tracking of likely voters finds a weakness for GOP contenders in #NCSen, #MISen and #AZSen: They're trailing @realDonaldTrump among likely Republican voters. (This problem isn't showing up for Gardner in #COSen and Perdue in #GASen) morningconsult.com/2020/07/28/sen… Image
Democratic Senate contenders in #AZSen, #COSen, #GASen, #MISen and #NCSen are pretty much matching @JoeBiden's performance among likely voters in their states, and most have an advantage with independent likely voters. morningconsult.com/2020/07/28/sen… Image

Calling it The Mercedes Project probably would've been a little too on-the-nose.

The biggest problem for #GOP in #AZ is among self-identified Moderates/Leaners & Hispanic/Latinos. Ideas like this from a long-shot GOP candidate saying we annex AZ’s largest trading partner all the while wanting to still build the wall is not helping.
realclearpolitics.com/articles/2019/…
Plus, I literally heard this same candidate address the crowd at an event alleging the Democrats STOLE the election from the GOP in the ‘18 #AZSEN race. His evidence was that Ducey won by a huge margin against Garcia although McSally lost by a much closer margin... Part 1/3
Then proceeded to say that the primary reason he is challenging McSally is bc she “raised the white flag” when conceding the election to Sinema. He blamed the electoral loss to massive voter fraud by recently elected Democratic Maricopa County Recorder @Adrian_Fontes ..
Part 2/3

I think one can be in favor of an official impeachment inquiry while also respecting the dilemma Nancy Pelosi faces.

She knows that Donald Trump is a criminal, yet she needs to hold on to the House in the next election.
Nobody fought harder than Speaker Pelosi to take back the House.

She knows that a Democratic House is all that stands in the way of the right-wing destroying this country for a century in this era of Trump.

With climate change and healthcare these are life-and-death stakes.
And right now Speaker Pelosi foresees a plausible future in which the impeachment of Donald Trump backfires on Democrats and results in Donald Trump's re-election, a Republican House, a Republican Senate, and a 6-3 Supreme Court.

It's a frightening thought.

It's been bad story after bad story for Mark Kelly since he jumped in the #AZSen race.

Arizona Republic: Mark Kelly shuns corporate PACs. But his ties with corporate money are more complicated azcentral.com/story/news/pol…
Kelly's paid speeches continue to raise questions about his motives.

"And even now, he continues to earn money on the speakers circuit from some groups aligned with business interests."
Even his own supporters think he's a hypocrite!

“How could he make that statement and then take money from the lobbyists ... who are trying to advance that particular corporation’s agenda?” asked McGartland, a 77-year-old Kelly supporter. “That’s an inconsistency.”

Senate Republicans and @realDonaldTrump continue to attack the Affordable Care Act. Now the Trump administration is trying to strike the entire ACA down. These Republican senators (all are up for re-election) are not taking your access to health care seriously:
David Perdue (R-GA), Thom Tillis (R-NC), and Cory Gardner (R-CO) have voted over and over again to risk protections for pre-existing conditions and make health care coverage more expensive. #gasen #ncsen #cosen
John Cornyn (R-TX) has voted over and over again to risk protections for pre-existing conditions and make health care coverage more expensive. And don’t forget, Cornyn was in charge of rounding up the votes to dismantle the ACA in 2017. #txsen

Some closing thoughts on #AZSen. First off, people have been wondering when AZ, w its growing Latino population would start acting like CA. It may have this election -- but not in the stereotypical way.....
AZ is further to the right than CA was when Ds took it over in 1998. Sinema won not by wooing Latinos but by targeting white women, often Republicans. She backed Kate's law and other tough-on-immigrant-crime Trumpy measures (though she never went full Trump, always backed CIR)
Ironically there are some parallels with CA circa 1998. Ds came back not with a firebreathing lefty but moderate gubernatorial candidate Gray Davis who persuaded white centrists, He won as CA voters also outlawed bilingual education and still supported anti-immigrant Prop 187.

Visiting NV/AZ, I was struck by the divergent Dem campaigns.

Rosen ran as an unabashed liberal, trashing Trump, rallying w/Bernie Sanders.

Sinema ran like a centrist, seldom mentioning Trump, downplaying cultural issues like immigration/guns.

Both won.

The latest in Senate 2018 flips 👇

• INDIANA: GOP gain
• MISSOURI: GOP gain
• NORTH DAKOTA: GOP gain

• NEVADA: DEM gain
• ARIZONA: DEM gain

And then there was Florida.
Will be interesting to see if Senator Sinema votes more like Joe Manchin or Jon Tester.

She said she’d have opposed Brett Kavanaugh, so there’s one hint.

The news that @marceelias is running the Nelson legal effort in #FLSen is not surprising but shows that Dems are taking this very seriously. Thread from @alivitali here —>
Elias also is involved in #AZSen, where — sorry I buried the lede — Sinema now is in the lead. —>

If you're watching election results tonight, here's a breakdown of what I'm going to be watching for in the race for Congress as the numbers come in -->
Here are the magic numbers to keep in mind tonight:

Democrats need to flip 23 SEATS in order to win back the House.

Democrats need to flip 2 SEATS in order to win back the Senate.
The first exit polls will land at 5:00pm so we'll have some ideas about makeup of the electorate compared to previous years, etc. The first actual races close at 6:00pm: KY-6 will be the one to watch, with an eye on IN-9, but we won't read *too* much into these.

We've seen Arizona indies flirt with the idea of voting for Democratic candidates statewide, only to swing back in the final stretch. Sinema needs a huge margin. It would be the first time since 2008, when Obama won them by just 51 to 46. He went on to lose them to Mitt Romney.
Obama went on to lose AZ indies to Romney by nearly the same margin he had previously carried them against McCain, 51% to 45%. Trump carried indies in AZ, 47% to 44%. Flake won them by just 46% to 45%.
But for Sinema to overcome that early vote lead, considering what vote is left on the table, she would need a historic margin no Democrat has received among indies AND a monster turnout that favors Democrats. Judging by the data, there's no such evidence she'll get it.

“It's pretty amazing, right? ... I think Republicans are more unified than I've seen since I've been in this new combat zone," ⁦@MarthaMcSally⁩ said in an interview. "I've been fighting stereotypes my whole life too, right? washingtonexaminer.com/news/congress/…
“So don't try to put me in a box. Don't try and label me. We're a big tent here." @marthamcsally is most qualified candidate running for any office in the US. First female attack pilot to fly in combat (310 hours at controls of A-10 Warthog) rose to Colonel, great Congresswoman
and center right. A fitting successor to @SenJohnMcCain: She will be great for military, military families and vets, and rejects the extremism her opponent Kyrsten Sinema embodies. Easy choice in #AZSEN but folks gotta turn out.
