Congratulations on your victory @briankempGA!

When he first took office, Gov. Kemp signed a law protecting unborn babies from the moment their heartbeat is detected. We look forward to continuing to work with him for LIFE! #GAGov #LifeWins22

"Our record shows that we value life, and that we care."

@BrianKempGA shares his commitment to both mom and baby: he worked to get Medicaid benefits to moms for up to a year following the birth of a child

Our partner org Women Speak Out PAC ran a $1M TV ad calling out Kemp’s opponent Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams and incumbent U.S. Senator Raphael Warnock for their abortion extremism…

We watched 135+ debates so you didn’t have to — and Democrats said some crazy things.

Here are some of the most insane debate moments from Democrats this cycle.

Minnesota Democrat Rep. Angie Craig: “I will never stop standing up for Big Pharma and standing against my constituents!” #MN02
Oregon Democrat Tina Kotek called for "meth stabilization center[s]" in Portland — "in addition to making [full drug decriminalization] work." #ORGov

Gun violence and crime are key issues for voters this cycle – and Democrats are effectively flipping the script by highlighting that it's the MAGA Republican agenda that puts profits for gun manufacturers ahead of public safety that’s responsible.

(h/t @POLITICOPro) 🧵
Last night, @Everytown released a new ad in #WISen highlighting how @RonJohnsonWI has enabled rising violence and new polling that shows the vast majority of Wisconsin voters support stronger gun safety laws that he’s continually opposed.
In #SC01, pediatrician and @MomsDemand vol @AnnieAndrewsMD’s first TV ad shows how gun violence devastates families and erases far too many lives – and yet her opponent @NancyMace votes against bipartisan gun safety bills.

“This was not just extreme carelessness with classified material, which is still totally disqualifying. This is calculated, deliberate, premeditated misconduct — a cover-up [with] false statements and lies to Congress and the American people.” #LockTrumpUp

#EspionageAct [doesn’t] mention classification at all. It talks about a specific type of information: national defense… The real question is, why would Trump WANT to declassify secrets that could harm the U.S.?”

Big controversy, apparently: @HawleyMO gives a fist for a peaceful crowd of thousands outside of the Capitol but then runs from a few dozen rowdy ones inside the Capitol.

Total clown show and @jaketapper is a partisan propaganda hack; not a "news anchor."
It's like saying 'if u favor BLM protests how can you oppose the riots that some of those protests descended into.?'

The diff is that all the unrest of Jan 6th has been less "fiery" than those riots.

We are subjects of an 18 month-and-counting propaganda campaign.
3/15 Rejecting election results has been done for decades including by some members of the @January6thCmte regarding Trump results; by @staceyabrams regarding #GAGov in 2018 and by @HillaryClinton who in 2019 said Trump knows that he is an illegitimate president. cc @MZHemingway

@ARKloster @ElectionWiz It gets better: The current warning by the Biden Admin regarding Dominion machines is based on a professor who in 2016 called on Clinton to contest the election results in 3 states due to likely hacking and voter manipulation of the machines!
@ARKloster @ElectionWiz @RonColeman @ColumbiaBugle @renato_mariotti @julie_kelly2 @justin_hart @JakeTurx @Peoples_Pundit @HansMahncke This is how it works:

2016: Dominion Machines are so bad that HRC should contest the results in 3 states!

2020: You are a democracy-undermining conspiracy theorist for suggesting that there can be issues.

2022: Ya, about those machines. Um, the 2016 guy says it's a problem!
@ARKloster @ElectionWiz @RonColeman @ColumbiaBugle @renato_mariotti @julie_kelly2 @justin_hart @JakeTurx @Peoples_Pundit @HansMahncke @benshapiro @BenHowe @guypbenson @AriFleischer @politicalwire @JonahDispatch @exjon @morningmoneyben @jonkarl @davereaboi 3/4 Note that along the way, a wing of the GOP and the Con Movement went along with the changing narrative: They didn't lose their mind on these calls post 2016, but did mock Trump post 2020 for suggesting there can be widespread issues; a stance now echoed by the Biden Admin!

At the @wsbtv gubernatorial debate, @DavidPerdueGA comes out the gate with the Big Lie: "The 2020 election was rigged and stolen," he says. Blames Kemp for Trump's (and his) election loss.
"I'm not dividing the party, the party was already divided," @DavidPerdueGA says when asked if his campaign is dividing the GOP. Claims Kemp "would not investigate anything" about the 2020 election. Some facts:…
.@BrianKempGA pushes back on claims he didn't do enough to stop the "rigged" 2020 election. Says he "the @GBI_GA has looked at this, but you know what, so has the @FBI and they haven't moved further" because of a lack of evidence.

Dueling internal polls of #GAgov!

Kemp's campaign says he leads 54–22%, or 43–39% after respondents are informed of Trump's endorsement.…

Perdue's campaign says he leads 47–44%, or 56–34% post-endorsement.…
This is convenient because we can just average them to get an idea of the REAL state of the race. That gives us a Kemp lead of 49–35%, but a Perdue lead of 48–39% post-endorsement.
Notably, the pre-endorsement question in the Perdue poll was just a head-to-head between Perdue and Kemp, omitting the other candidates. I bet they had to do that to get Perdue in the lead; the post-endorsement question suggests Vernon Jones et al. are pulling a significant share

I applaud Marist for indeed being one of the most transparent pollsters out there when it comes to its sampling. It also allows us, like Marist, to study what might have led to a chronic pro-D bias in Oct/Nov 2018 polls... 1/
First, we should note that Marist's Oct/Nov 2018 polls were fairly precise even if there was a chronic pro-D *inaccuracy:*

MO: McCaskill +3 (actual result -6)
IN: Donnelly +3 (-6)
AZ: Sinema +6 (+2)
FL: Nelson +4 (-0.2)
TN: Bredesen -5 (-11)
MN: Walz +17 (+12)
WI: Evers +10 (+1)
What's one thing these surveys had in common? In all seven cases, non-college whites were seriously under-sampled relative to their share of the actual electorate based on estimates using Census/CPS data compiled after the election.

I want to make something very clear: This fight isn't about me. This fight is about making sure our democracy works for & represents everyone who has ever put their faith in it. It’s about fighting for every Georgian who cast a ballot with the promise that their vote would count.
It does not matter if you voted for me or my opponent. Every voter – regardless of party affiliation, race, or region – deserves to have a say in our Georgia. #GAGov #gapol
Right now, our campaign is pouring all of our resources into ensuring every ballot cast is a ballot counted. We are not taking our eyes off of this process, even for a moment. #CountEveryVote #gapol

THREAD: Today, @GeorgiaDemocrat released a list of some of the outstanding questions that remain as Kemp coronates himself this morning.

Why is @BrianKempGA rushing to declare himself the winner even as additional votes come in that could change the outcome? #GAGov #gapol
Why is @BrianKempGA rushing to declare himself the winner after pledging to count remaining votes on yesterday morning?

How regularly will Kemp continue to update the results page of his website as additional votes come in, even if those results are not positive for him? #gapol
Why has @BrianKempGA not made the county breakdown of provisional ballots available to the media, as he is required to do?

What additional information is Candidate Brian Kemp receiving from Secretary of State Brian Kemp's office that is not being shared with the media? #gapol

The Georgia governor's debate has been interrupted by a fire alarm. amazing
A little news out of first few minutes of #gagov debate between Stacey Abrams and Brian Kemp. Kemp said he would remain in his position as Sec of State if a recount is required.
We really need to improve our debate formats. As it is now, candidates stand up and say things like, my opponents plans "should scare you to death" without any requirement to show details of what they're talking about

This November, millions of Americans’ access to health care is on the line. Each day from #100DaysOut to midterm elections, we’ll share the story of a Little Lobbyist who needs YOU to be a #HealthCareVoter for them. THREAD 0/100
#100DaysOut “Meet our kids and think of them when you vote. Our children deserve that.” @ElenaHung202

This November, Xiomara's access to health care is #WhatsAtStake. She needs you to be a #HealthCareVoter. 1/100
#100daysout Timmy would’ve lost his insurance in the NICU if he hadn’t been born just 6 days after the #ACA banned lifetime caps on care.

Not-so-fun-fact: Every year Georgia doesn’t expand Medicaid, we miss out on $3 billion (billion, with a “B”) federal dollars meant to pay for Georgians' health coverage. That’s $8 million left on the table every day. Here's why that matters. 1/… #gapol
240k Georgians earn too much to qualify for Medicaid, but too little to receive subsidies available under the #ACA. They fall in a “coverage gap.”
Medicaid expansion would close that gap, providing health coverage to 473k more Georgians in '19. 2/ #gapol…
But back to the $3 billion/year. The $8 million Georgia leaves on the table every single day could be used to keep our rural hospitals open, expand access to mental health care, and reduce our alarmingly high maternal and infant mortality rates. 3/ #gapol…

I met Pam last year during one of many trips to Macon, Georgia.

Pam has two daughters on their way to college, one of whom was expecting. Like so many family members across Georgia, Pam planned to raise her grandchild while her daughter received an education. 1/ #gapol
As I talked with Pam, I watched her eyes sparkle as she spoke of all she wanted for her daughters and about their aspirations: One, to become an educator; the other, to work in law enforcement.

I couldn't help but wonder what Pam wanted for her own life. 2/ #gapol
When I asked, she looked at me like I was crazy. "I just told you everything that I want."

I clarified: "But Pam, what do you want for yourself?"

She paused. After a few seconds, she replied: "I don't know. No one has ever asked me that question before." 3/ #gapol
