My @sdut op-ed response to Issa’s lawsuit.

1. Admitting your suing because an all mail-in ballot election will cost you more money is stupid.

2. Claiming the Gov’s order unconstitutionally circumvents the Legislature is irrelevant, @AsmMarcBerman’s bill is about to codify it.
3. Issa says universal vote-by-mail is an “entirely new system.”

Oregon began universal VBM in 1998, also CO, WA & UT.

15 counties in CA shifted to all-mail elections for March primary. In #CA50, 80% of votes were cast by VBM voters.

Also Issa has voted by mail since 2002.
4. Issa’s crusade against election fraud is itself a fraud. On Fox, he demanded ballots only go to “people who still exist, who are still at the address where they registered.”

Issa just re-registered to vote at his mother’s #CA50 house, when he’s lived in #CA49 for 20 yrs.

🗳️ It's #SuperTuesday. Here’s a rundown of the top races you need to watch today 👇

bgovgo.com/Oy0hUVH
Alabama #ALSen 👇

@jeffsessions faces competition for his former seat from @TTuberville. Sessions and fellow competitor @RepByrne have run ads portraying Tuberville as weak on illegal immigration.

If no one receives a majority, a runoff between the top two will be held March 31
@jeffsessions @TTuberville @RepByrne Democrat @SenDougJones, who has minor primary opposition in the #ALSen race, is the most politically vulnerable senator in either party.

A developing thread on #ElectionResults2018

How depraved are Republicans? They’d rather vote for criminals, buffoons, extremists, racists, bigots and Nazis than vote for decent human beings who want to help fellow Americans

Case 1: Nazi Art Jones got over 56K votes 27% in #IL03

Rep Chris Collins [R-NY], who was arrested less than 3 months ago by the
FBI for insider trading, was just reelected for a 4th term in Congress. 🙄
Publicly disgraced Rep Duncan Hunter [R-#CA50], who is facing jail time after a being charged with a 60 [SIXTY!] count FELONY corruption indictment AND who "waged one of the most brazenly anti-Muslim smear campaigns in recent history" has been reelected. JFC.

First 2 members of Trump Congressional Caucus - Collins and Hunter were inducted and now @potus is rage-tweeting the Attorney General. Some presume he’s setting up the pardons; others presume the GOP in #ca50 want Hunter to win then quit (both presumptions can be true).
Read Trump’s tweet as help to Hunter reinforcing the #ca50 “keep it red” message to voters: IF Hunter has to leave office the GOP gets a do-over. Hunter needs leverage and his seat is what he has to “offer” prosecutors. If he WINS he has a 2 year seat to give up in a plea deal.
Whatever the purpose, a President trying to influence the Attorney General - and the jury pool (!!) - in a series of prosecutions would have Republicans who say they mourn the lost norms of Washington DC screaming from the rooftops ...

In San Diego there is a left-wing FBI informant named “Martha.” jacobinmag.com/2018/08/richar…
How do I know that Martha is an FBI informant?
During the aftermath of the armed insurrection at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge it was revealed in court that the FBI was using paid informants to gather information about the militia men and RWNJs involved. #OregonStandoff

Wow. Duncan Hunter & his wife are terrible people. The “ickiest” allegations:

“Margaret Hunter allegedly spent $152 on makeup at Nordstrom and told the campaign it was “gift basket items for the Boys and Girls Clubs of San Diego.” #CA50 #capol
/1

washingtonpost.com/politics/2018/…
“In an attempt to justify spending campaign funds on a family trip to Italy, Hunter asked a naval base there for a tour. When officials said they couldn’t do it then, Hunter said, ‘Tell the Navy to go f--- themselves.’”

The Hunters “allegedly described the payment of their family dental bills as a charitable contribution to ‘Smiles for Life.’”

Good morning!

Our @BlueWavecs #COTD is @ACampaNajjar in #CA50

#CA50 is a traditionally super red district, but yesterday it was moved from "solid GOP" to "lean GOP" because incumbent GOP @Rep_Hunter was indicted yesterday for being an ass.

#WednesdayWisdom
#TakeItBack
Okay, @Rep_Hunter wasn't indicted for being an ass. I just ran out of space. What I meant to say was that @Rep_Hunter, the second guy to endorse Trump, stole $250k in campaign funds to do things like take his family to Italy and fly the family pet to DC. washingtonpost.com/politics/2018/…
Our @BlueWaveCS #COTD @ACampaNajjar is at 12.8k followers.

Think we can get him to 13.1?

The GOP's silence about ripping children from their parents is deafening.

1. While #California numbers aren’t entirely in, let’s take a dive into Super Tuesday in terms of the strategies we employed at @DemsWork4USA and what the primary results mean for November.
2. We’re extremely proud of the results in #NewMexico and #Iowa where all our endorsed candidates won. We don’t always feature state legislature seats as with IA, but do so when we have strong candidates than will both build the bench and drive momentum at the top of the ticket.
3. In #NewJersey we won all but 1 of our endorsements. We realized that Tanzie Youngblood would not likely take the nomination, but she is well positioned for seeking a state legislative seat in the special election and bringing Jeff Van Drew along to a more progressive appeal.

It's Super Tuesday, & my cheat sheet has ballooned to include 33 important elections: docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d…

So here's a quick thread highlighting some (lower-profile) races you should absolutely be paying attention to today!
You know the big ones:
—Will Dems be shut-out in any of the 3 crowded Orange Co districts (#CA39, #CA48, #CA49)?
—Will the GOP be shut out in one/both of California's Senate & Gov race?
What else?
In New Mexico, state Rep. Debbie Rodella is facing a primary challenger in the Democratic primary (Susan Herrera). Rodella has killed progressive legislation, such as automatic voting registration. See: dailykos.com/stories/2018/4…
