Today at @ClimateHawkVote we're spotlighting @MelanieforNM in #NM01. She's got a new ad up -- watch it! bit.ly/32SBzeL
@ClimateHawkVote @MelanieforNM What I really like about this ad -- @MelanieforNM is running on climate, clean energy, a grid bill that she passed !!! and #NM01 jobs, all while highlighting her local roots. bit.ly/32SBzeL
@ClimateHawkVote @MelanieforNM (I had to look up Burquena. It means Albuquerquean, and it's much easier to say and spell)

NYT map is useful. 90% of the #NM01 vote comes from Bernallillo County, which shifted left in 2020 = blue is "bluer since 2016."

Story for both parties was less racial politics, more local party leaders picking the candidates who'd won swing seats.
And I forgot the map! But you see it here - some precincts where Rs gained over 2016, a lot more where Dems gained. Crucial context: In 2016, Gary Johnson was on the ballot. Most of his protest voters ended up going Dem in 2020. Image
GOP candidate's first TV ad doesn't mention that he's a Republican or that he has some Hispanic heritage. Not impossible for GOP but tough. It's just notable that a state party that challenged the 2020 electoral vote recruited a less ideological-sounding R

Final Results for #LA02

Gary Chambers lost by 1.6% (around 1500 votes)

First of all, tremendous props to Gary and his team for running a real progressive campaign and way over performing polls and the expectations of most of the pundits.
Second of all, this was a defeat for progressives and the race will now be between a conservative Democrat and a corporate lobbyist who has a record of now showing up for her constituents.
Gary is a lifelong activist and the clear progressive choice. When organisations like Our Revolution and DFA endorsed a lobbyist over him it was misguided and likely an attempt to endorse a more viable candidate when Gary was indeed viable.

Congresswoman Carolyn Bourdeaux flipped #GA07 blue & helped put Georgia in the Dem column for the 1st time since 1992.

@Carolyn4GA7 uses her experience helping to rebuild GA’s economy in the Great Recession to tackle kitchen table issues for working families. #WomensHistoryMonth
Congresswoman Teresa Leger Fernandez fought for decades for equity & investment in the health & economic security of Latino & tribal communities.

@TeresaForNM’s expertise is vital as the House tackles a pandemic w/ disparate impact on these communities. #NM03 #WomensHistoryMonth
Congresswoman Marie Newman’s fight for #Equality4All was a national model years before she came to DC.

@Marie4Congress also works for health care, gun sense, and curbing economic inequality with workforce & infrastructure investment for a green economy. #IL03 #WomensHistoryMonth

If Haaland is confirmed, it would trigger a special election in #NM01, which voted for Biden by 23 points, per @DKElections.

In 15 U.S. House special elections from 2017 to 2020, the maximum deviation from a district's presidential results was 21 points.

Image
Democrats would start out as strong favorites to keep Haaland's #NM01 district (Biden +23).

There are several examples of Democrats overperforming by close to that margin in special elections - #KS04 (+21), #PA18 (+20), #NY27 (+19).

But the GOP would have to do even better.
For Republicans to pull off a massive upset in a #NM01 special election, they'd probably need:

- A strongly pro-Republican political environment
- Latino turnout collapses in a district where they are ~43% of eligible voters
- Latinos that do show up shift towards Republicans

Tested it out with this new KY map. Based on 2016-2019 results, intrigued how it would do in 2020. The #KY04 (R+7 PVI) seems more competitive than the real #KY06 (R+9), with the movement in the Cincinnati and Lexington suburbs. 2/27 davesredistricting.org/join/d389d8e2-…
However, I also did a bunch of Democratic gerrymanders after 2012 redistricting to compare with the real Republican ones. Thought I’d review how my designs performed in light of 2016. The contrast shows just how much of a difference partisan control makes (spoiler: a lot). 3/27

My opponent's assertion on Fox News today that my parents' military service means I am not Native American is racist, an assault on military families, and wrong. #nm01 #nmpol
For generations, Native Americans have been subjected to genocide, forced assimilation, and government-backed family separation. Even today, Native American Tribes suffer through attacks on tribal sovereignty and the ongoing unanswered epidemic of #MMIW
Despite all of that, Native Americans are still here, we are proud, and we matter. I am proud to be a citizen of the Pueblo of Laguna, and I am proud of my parents’ service in both the Marines and the US Navy.

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…
