And now, a quick thread illustrating just how thoroughly California Republicans were obliterated in the post-election day counts.

Just want everyone to be aware of something for when #CA21 is finally, officially called: GOP incumbent David Valadao is Devin Nunes cousin.
Somehow that has gone largely unnoticed and uncommented upon.
Also, their politics aside, there's probably some really interesting history in Portuguese immigrant families moving to the Central Valley and starting dairy farms.

.@TJCoxCongress has pulled ahead of incumbent Valadao in #CA21.

If the lead holds, that will bring the Dem gains in the house to 40 seats.

This is what a #BlueWave looks like, y'all.

But that's just the beginning. 1/
#tuesdaythoughts #tuesdaymotivation
2/ Of particular note, Democrats won the popular vote by over 9M, the largest margin in US history.

The closest runner-up was the election after Watergate.

History does, indeed, rhyme. #tuesdaythoughts #tuesdaymotivation

3/ In addition, Democrats netted 300 legislative seats and 7 governorships. Democrats now have full control in 14 states, which will make this year's redistricting efforts more equitable. #tuesdaythoughts #tuesdaymotivation cnn.com/2018/11/26/pol…

Wow! Democrat @TJCoxCongress might still upset @RepDavidValadao in #CA21. The Republican leads by 1,981 votes but provisional ballots appear to be breaking strongly for the Democrat (which is almost always true in CA) and theres a lot of provisional ballots left 1/
As @Redistrict notes, provisionals broke 2.5 to 1 (71% to 29%) in favor of Cox (D) in Tulare Co, which Valadao (R) won (56% to 43%).

Fresno and Kern County are still outstanding.

Fresno Co has 15,000 VBM and 24,000 provisional ballots to count - roughly 15% from #CA21 2/
So back of the napkin calculation says Fresno Co has 6K uncounted votes in #CA21. (It could be more or less - the registrar doesn't give exact numbers by CD).

But a reasonable estimate is:
2250 VBM
3600 Provisional ballots

If these ballots break 2-1 for Cox, the Dem wins 3/
