A thread on @WholeFoods and elections: @Redistrict recently wrote that Dems will perform the best in areas that are geographically close to Whole Foods (WF). I decided to map/calculate the # of Whole Foods by congressional district to test his theory on WF and elections (1/9)
So first, the basics. There are 470 WF across the U.S., and 233/435 CD's have at least 1 WF in them. WF districts did tend to prefer Clinton over Trump, as they had an average 2016 pres. margin of +13 Clinton, while non-WF districts preferred Donald Trump by +8 points. (2/9)
@RepTedLieu’s #CA33, has the highest number of WF (dare I say it’s a Whole Foods gerrymander?!), with 10 WF. The Boston metro also has a large number of WF, with #MA05, and #MA07 (@AyannaPressley's new district) each having 7 (3/9)

THREAD: Tonight was the first night that I saw @RepKevinBrady answer questions without pre-selecting the questions. Here is the breakdown.
1/ Typically @bradyfortexas doesn’t host public town halls. He will pick his audience (think oil and gas employees, conservative groups, etc) and go speak to them, in which there is either a fee to get in or you have to be an employee of the company.
2/ Tonight was different for two reasons: 1) he spoke to a Woodlands village association (open to the public), and 2) it was announced about 2 weeks ago. Typically he will only give a 2-3 day heads up for a public event if he holds one.
