Tennessee couldโ€™ve had 100% of the cost of Medicaid paid for by the federal government for 200,000 people for three years, and at least 90% of the cost covered after that. Instead they decided to screw those people and themselves.
Tennessee actually tried expanding it several times, even adding a $20/month premium...but the state GOP legislature has still refused every time.

Next Tweets: Pic of Torshin and Butina in Nashville at the 2015 @NRA Convention; pic of Torshin in Nashville in 2012 looking at voting machines with @MarshaBlackburn long term org chair Kline Preston; a couple recent threads we've written on these subjects. #TrumpRussia [Thread]
This pic of two close Putin allies - Butina and Torshin - at Nashville's @countrymusichof makes our blood run cold. (Pic first published by @CJCMichel.)

We can't see nametags on the other two women but our guess is other Russians in town for the convention.
Torshin in Nashville in 2012 with Kline Preston, @MarshaBlackburn's longtime org chair. (Shots from Torshin's own Twitter feed, which was still live last we checked tho Torshin himself seems to have... gone dark.)

If you're watching election results tonight, here's a breakdown of what I'm going to be watching for in the race for Congress as the numbers come in -->
Here are the magic numbers to keep in mind tonight:

Democrats need to flip 23 SEATS in order to win back the House.

Democrats need to flip 2 SEATS in order to win back the Senate.
The first exit polls will land at 5:00pm so we'll have some ideas about makeup of the electorate compared to previous years, etc. The first actual races close at 6:00pm: KY-6 will be the one to watch, with an eye on IN-9, but we won't read *too* much into these.

Please RT
#VoteBlueToSaveAmerica #GOPVotingBlue
Ted Cruz FACT: He's invested millions of dollars in digital influence campaigns.
Maliciously targeting you, your family & friends.

Operating largely in the shadows, using firm that harvested data on stolen from millions of unwitting FB users. #TXSen #txlege #TX14 #Psywar #Psyop
Ted Cruz FACT: Files reveal that AggregateIQโ€”also known as โ€œAIQโ€โ€”is the developer behind campaign apps created for Ted Cruz and Greg Abbott, as well as a Ukrainian steel magnate named Serhiy Taruta.

.@VoteMarsha ginning up the 'fake outrage' machine again. Last time she did this she violated @Twitter TOS against distributing hacked material. The first time she contributed to the deaths of a police officer and a decorated veteran. [THREAD] #TNSen

dailycaller.com/2018/10/30/gooโ€ฆ
We've actually been writing threads about this for weeks now. In early October @Votemarsha resurrected her "#StopTheBias" hashtag which she shares with such fine upstanding orgs as Alex Jones' Prison Planet.

The gist of her argument is, hacked internal @Google emails reveal unflattering things its engineers believe about @VoteMarsha. (Many other people believe unflattering things about her for good reason, we might add.)

โ—What @VoteMarsha's not telling you about "mobs."

In 2001, as a state Senator, she played a lead role in instigating a group of 1000+ who broke windows & shut down the Legislature over a vote on a potential state income tax. @Tennessean coverage tells the tale. #TNSen [THREAD]
The July 13, 2001 issue of @Tennessean was more or less full of the story. (You can purchase it yourself at Tennessean.com archives or on sites like Newspapers.com.)

Unfortunately it's in a format that's difficult to represent here, but we've done our best
to provide a few screenshots which provide the gist of the story.

As we've said all along: @TNGOP, Koch Brothers @AFPhq and @VoteMarsha have nothing that even remotely compares to their own scandals to hang on @PhilBredesen.

washingtonpost.com/politics/2018/โ€ฆ
UNlike @VoteMarsha, Phil has never been investigated by the FEC, his close associates aren't tied to Putin/Russia and aren't being disbarred for fraud.

He's never directed money to his family (he never lived in the Governors Mansion his supporters paid half the tab to rehab.)
@TNGOP, the Koch Brothers and @VoteMarsha have to make stuff up to have any campaign at all.

We were just talking about @VoteMarsha personal and political scandals. It's not like this is the first time she's failed to report salient information. #TNSen

tennessean.com/story/news/polโ€ฆ
We know we've already talked about this a lot but it bears repeating. @VoteMarsha's campaign finance chair in '02 and '04 was Kline Preston.

thinkprogress.org/history-of-chrโ€ฆ
(Preston has been close to frmr Russian Senator Alex Torshin for years. Another close associate of Alex Torshin? Vladimir Putin.

Here's Preston with Torshin and @BillHaslam - son of @VoteMarsha's 2018 Senate campaign finance chair. Coincidence?

Here's Torshin with Putin.)

Keene and his wife were, of course, introduced to Butina's handler Alex Torshin- and likely Butina- by longtime @VoteMarsha associate (frmr campaign finance chair & re-elect head) Kline Preston.

Want a scandal-free Senator? Vote @PhilBredesen for #TNSen.

Nashville, run almost entirely by Democrats, has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the US. This is bumping up stats for the entire state.

We bet @VoteMarsha cheated off the other kids in school, too.

Who was at the helm at the beginning of Nashville's massive expansion back in the aughts?

#ThrowbackThursday: @VoteMarsha received 33 (!) letters from @FEC re: over $100K in unreported donations - while her campaign finance chair was Kline Preston, 1 degree of separation from Vladimir #Putin thru Preston's pal Torshin (see pinned thread). #RussianConspiracy #TNSen
From the @JSunNews article "Group files complaint against Blackburn's campaign committee" 12 June '08 by Bill Theobald:
Just this week another close @VoteMarsha pal, Judson Phillips - her mouthpiece for years - was disbarred for fraud.

Alexander Torshin is, of course, the mob-connected Russian Senator who was invited by @VoteMarsha re-elect org chair Kline Preston to observe TN elections in Nashville in 2012. #TNSen
Here's Torshin with Preston and @BillHaslam - at the @TNGOP victory party here in Nashville on Nov 6, 2012, same event where @VoteMarsha spoke. Yet we're to believe she didn't meet with Torshin.
What kind of access did Torshin get?

What kind of help is @VoteMarsha getting from Russia right now, while @SecTreHargett refuses to spend TN's Help America Vote funds - $29 million - to secure our election?

Here's a perfect example of why Trump supporters disrupt @CNN. 1) "Trump's sagging popularity" isn't exactly a problem in Tennessee. Hate to tell you. 2) Phil Bredesen's "cross-party appeal" didn't show up last night. It's a closed primary, yet GOP... cnn.com/2018/08/02/polโ€ฆ
Tennessee is a closed primary state. Yet, there wasn't an indication of a large GOP sit-out. This was a very lopsided primary vote. Just do some simple math. What percentage of the indie vote would Phil Bredesen need to win to beat Marsha Blackburn? The #TNSen will move from...
The #TNSen will move from "Slightly Republican" to a strong "Leans Republican."
