#REDFLAG: Yet another stark reminder...

We must flip BOTH the Senate and the White House.
#FLAG: Which GOP Senate seats are you focused on flipping?

Which Dem Senate seats are you focused on defending?

Remember, we must #FlipItBlue AND #KeepItBlue to #FlipTheSenate!

#REMEMBER: Trump is cynically "saving" Judge Amy Coney Barrett for Ruth Bader Ginsburg's SCOTUS seat.

"I'm saving her for Ginsburg."

She is anti-choice, anti-Roe v. Wade, and against everything RBG spent her life fighting for.

We must #FlipTheSenate.

Anyone who gives Shaun King anymore money deserves to be grifted.

Periodt.
Shaun King is ✌🏾fundraising✌🏾 to fight in all 50 states to flip the senate in 2020 even though something like less than half the states have a senate race in 2020.

He is profiting off of people’s desperation about trump. This is absurd.

He has the political acumen of a newt.
To the white folks in my mentions who are saying that no one has ever proven BRD that Shaun King is a grifter or done the things that Black women have been talking about for five years?

Give him your money.

Your his target demo. Enjoy feeling like you’re doing something. ✌🏾

Some strong-ish #TuesdayThoughts about the state of our electorate -- and one state in particular: The battle-grounder, #Wisconsin

The Badger State has been gerrymandered to shreds by the anti-American #GOPTraitors

Think that's an overstatement?

Consider this

👇🏽 (thread)
2)

In the 2018 Midterms, #Democrats won EVERY statewide election, yet because of gerrymandering lost 63 of the 99 state assembly races.

THINK ABOUT THAT!
3)

When Republicans redrew the map in 2011, the numbers show that the current map is even far more tilted toward the GOP than the previous map — and all but ensures Republican control of the state Assembly in “good” years or “bad” for the GOP.

THINK ABOUT THIS!

Top 10 reasons to support @harrisonjaime 4 US Senate.
1. Jaime’s inspiring personal story. He remembers where & who he came from. Jaime lived the challenges facing vulnerable South Carolinians. He appreciates opportunities he’s received. He lives #ToWhomMuchIsGivenMuchIsRequired
2. Jaime is smart, determined & tenacious. He earned a scholarship to Yale after graduating from an under-resourced Orangeburg SC high school & he earned a law degree from Georgetown while working for @WhipClyburn
3. Jaime’s desire to serve. He could have gone anywhere w/Yale & Georgetown Law degrees but he chose public service: teaching 9th grade in SC, starting a non-profit to help kids get into college, working for @WhipClyburn & rising thru the ranks to become 1st AA Whip Floor Leader.

I’ve observed Colorado @SenCoryGardner since his election. What I’ve seen has left me dismayed. Rather than building bipartisan bridges to get things done, Cory became a supine Trump yes-man. There are 1000s reasons he shouldn’t be re-elected. Here are 101: #VoteCoryOut #COsen
#1: Even though he was elected by the narrowest of margins in 2014 in a state that has since voted for Hillary in 2016 & a democratic state govt trifecta in 2018, Cory continues to act as if he has a mandate from the white nationalist alt-right. #VoteCoryOut #cosen
#2: Cory Gardner has consistently voted for the extreme Trump agenda. During the 2019-2020 Congress, he’s voted with Trump over 90% of the time. During Trump’s 1st two years, Cory’s voting record was over 95% in line with Trump. #VoteCoryOut #cosen

Does anyone else notice

Rod Rosenstein was a lot more magnanimous when Republicans had control of house blocking any action because of the probe?

He blame Obama?

After the last two years of Republicans trying to kill the investigation; voting against cyber security?
Boy I'll tell you,

Republican sure don't hire their own for no reason..

If Rosenstein is showing his true face, can we trust that Mueller did his job properly?

Did he Farm the cases out to people like Acosta?

@HouseDemocrats just subpoena Mueller, enough nicety
I guess the real big question is how did bar already score a waiver to interfere in one of the State cases in New York related to the Mueller probe?

@HouseDemocrats ..

did Mueller line them up in court with people like labor secretary Acosta? Someone will give access to Barr?

@realDonaldTrump ⚡️TELL IT LIKE IT IS:
Dems are holding out for an amendment to include a handful of additional provisions, including requiring the Dept of Housing & Urban Development to release block-grant funding & money to help #PuertoRico repair damaged water systems.

@realDonaldTrump 🚨Listen up America:

The Dem-led House is passing bills that advance voting rights, protect our #healthcare & defend against #ClimateChange.

McConnell & the GOP are BLOCKING ALL OF THEM in the Senate, so who's obstructing? #FlipTheSenate #ProtectOurCare

Yes, the FALSE HEADLINE was ADDED to a real World Health Org map. In this one metric, the USA comes in 7th, not the cleanest.

This is BANANA REPUBLIC-STYLE govt.

🔷As of January 3, 2019, The Republicans now have 52 seats plus the Vice President. and the Democrats have 45 seats and 2 independents who caucus with the Democrats.

🏛️51 required for majority
🏛️60 required for 3/5
🏛️67 required for 2/3

👁️BEFORE VS. AFTER
*⃣There was one vacancy, but the Republican Arizona Governor appointed fellow Republican Martha McSally, who took office on January 3, 2019. So the Senate is basically 53-47, in favor of the GOP.

🕳️The vacancy is shown as red in the "after" configuration.👆

How many could it have helped in #PuertoRico?

How many people complaining about jobs and the economy could've had their lives improved?

How many mass shootings could've been stopped?

How many roads and bridges could've been built?

How much could we have improved health care?
How much more secure could we have made our elections?

How many climate disasters could we have ameliorated, if not prevented?

How many people could've been retrained for better paying jobs?

Think elections don't affect you?

They do, whether you know it or not
