🗳️ It's #SuperTuesday. Here’s a rundown of the top races you need to watch today 👇

bgovgo.com/Oy0hUVH
Alabama #ALSen 👇

@jeffsessions faces competition for his former seat from @TTuberville. Sessions and fellow competitor @RepByrne have run ads portraying Tuberville as weak on illegal immigration.

If no one receives a majority, a runoff between the top two will be held March 31
@jeffsessions @TTuberville @RepByrne Democrat @SenDougJones, who has minor primary opposition in the #ALSen race, is the most politically vulnerable senator in either party.

1/ A crowded pool of Democrats are vying to unseat Republican U.S. Sen. John Cornyn — but many people don’t know who they are.

Tonight you can catch 11 of these candidates taking the debate stage to discuss where they stand on key issues. #tx2020 #txsen bit.ly/2P7vO6t
2/ To help voters make sense of the race, we talked to the top candidates, those who raised at least $100,000 for their campaigns or registered at least 3% support in an October 2019 University of Texas/Texas Tribune Poll. bit.ly/2P3uAJF
3/ We asked the candidates a series of simple questions designed to help Democratic primary voters understand their political and policy-based differences. bit.ly/2P3uAJF

Big news out of Texas today for efforts to advance criminal legal reform. Dem #TXSen candidate @cristinafortx backs the #JusticeGuarantee —>
Here's a thread from @cristinafortx about what she's up to with the #JusticeGuarantee and why she's backing it. As more politicians acknowledge the problems in our system, we need more candidates like Cristina who also talk about the changes needed to reverse those problems.
So great to see support like this. Change only happens when candidates make clear what’s wrong, why they know it’s wrong, and what they’re going to do to work toward ending those problems. When they do that, voters listen.

2/ TX has been trending Democratic for years, and it’s because of the work of organizers & advocates. Because of them, 2020 is a possible tipping point!

We can turn TX blue, but it won’t happen without even more work from even more progressives. #txlege #txsen #2020Election
3/ Up first, those who have filed for U.S. Congress:

TX-10 (#ATX): @MikeSiegelTX
TX-23 (#Helotes): Efrain V. Valdez

Senate Republicans and @realDonaldTrump continue to attack the Affordable Care Act. Now the Trump administration is trying to strike the entire ACA down. These Republican senators (all are up for re-election) are not taking your access to health care seriously:
David Perdue (R-GA), Thom Tillis (R-NC), and Cory Gardner (R-CO) have voted over and over again to risk protections for pre-existing conditions and make health care coverage more expensive. #gasen #ncsen #cosen
John Cornyn (R-TX) has voted over and over again to risk protections for pre-existing conditions and make health care coverage more expensive. And don’t forget, Cornyn was in charge of rounding up the votes to dismantle the ACA in 2017. #txsen

1/ @BetoORourke is reportedly running for president.

From a “little-known” El Paso congressman to the name on every 2020 Democratic watch list, the past two years have been a ride.

bit.ly/2UHTsag
2/ Beto O’Rourke’s path to Democratic political superstardom began in early 2017, when he first seemed interested in challenging @tedcruz.

He was a “little-known challenger” who’d face “steep odds” if he jumped into the race. bit.ly/2HjGSeG
3/ Beto O’Rourke proved to be a savvy campaigner, taking the #txsen race to every county in the state.

It was unconventional, to say the least. bit.ly/2UAYLsh

A bunch of handwringing debate about Beto O'Rourke's performance in the smaller Texas counties - where his 26.6% of the vote underperformed Bill White's 32.4% but bettered Wendy Davis' all-time D low of 22.6%. #txlege 1/
And there is no question that doing better in rural Texas would have helped O'Rourke close the gap with Ted Cruz. But it's important to remember that the smaller counties only contribute around 21% of the vote, so the impact of "underperformance" can be exaggerated. #txlege 2/
Even if O'Rourke had won the same percentage of the vote in the smaller counties as Bill White, he still would have come up short (a lot closer to be sure but still short). #txlege 3/

Beto O'Rourke was the first Democrat for Senate to win Tarrant County, TX (Ft. Worth) since Lloyd Bentsen. No Democrat for President has won it since Johnson. Tarrant is a microcosm of suburban Texas's Trump revolt. Precinct returns for 2012, 2016, and 2018 below. #txpol #txsen
Watch the educated Anglo areas highlighted in green, where a majority of non-Hispanic whites over 25 are college-educated or more -- that's where most of the 2012-16 swing was. The 2016-18 swing happened in the rest of the county as rebellion spread.
Tarrant County Democrats flipped state and local seats red to blue across the county. Meanwhile, Tarrant County Republicans are trying to eject a Muslim party vice chair for his religion, accelerating their suburban doom. star-telegram.com/news/state/tex…

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.

My closing #Midterm2018 THREAD: Let's look at how Ted Cruz has knowingly worked to divide and mislead Texans. #txlege
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 AggregateIQ—also known as “AIQ”—is the developer behind campaign apps created for Ted Cruz and Greg Abbott, as well as a Ukrainian steel magnate named Serhiy Taruta.

1/ THREAD: We asked @TedCruz, @BetoORourke and @NealDikeman 17 policy questions we crowdsourced from young Texans.

Here’s what they said to each one.

#tx2018 #txsen #MidtermElections

trib.it/1BW
2/ Should the state or federal government increase the minimum wage?

@BetoORourke: Yes
@NealDikeman: No
@TedCruz: No

trib.it/1BW
3/ How should the government help Texans build wealth through homeownership?

@BetoORourke said "expand existing home-buyer assistance programs that help with down payments and mortgage loans." trib.it/1BW

1/ You may be seeing reports of Texas voting machines changing the selections of some straight-ticket voters.

But the voting machines are not at fault. Here’s what is happening, and how to avoid it.

#earlyvoting #txlege #tx2018 #txsen

trib.it/1C7
2/ Voters have reported voting for straight-ticket, but when they reviewed their final list of selected candidates, someone from an opposing party was picked instead.

trib.it/1C7
3/ Here’s the deal: The problems reported are the result of “voters hitting a button or using the selection wheel before the screen is finished rendering,” which de-selects the pre-filled candidate selection. trib.it/1C7

1/ @BetoORourke and @TedCruz are fighting over America’s most conservative large county.

Will Tarrant County flip in 2018? Is it really a battleground for Democrats and Republicans?

#tx2018 #txsen

bit.ly/2Pog5kZ
@BetoORourke @tedcruz 2/ Tarrant County is a complicated place — the county is urban, suburban and rural all at once.

The outlying ranches and suburbs are mostly a backwater in Texas politics.

Gerrymandered to the hilt, the national parties have mostly ignored this county.

bit.ly/2Pog5kZ
@BetoORourke @tedcruz 3/ But since Trump's election, things have changed.

There’s organic Democratic activism and Beto O’Rourke's high-risk bet to stake his statewide strategy on flipping this county to his party.

Quick thread on the new Quinnipiac poll on @tedcruz - @BetoORourke #txsen race: It shouldn't be so surprising that Cruz is up 54-45, that's the same spread for the Quinnipiac poll as in Sept and Cruz has consistently led by 5+ points in other polls. 1/ poll.qu.edu/texas/release-…
2/ Also should not surprise that Cruz is capturing nearly 40% of the Hispanic vote. That's about the avg for GOP candidates in TX. Hispanics who vote in TX tend to be more R-leaning than many in the MSM suppose.
3/ Gov. Greg Abbott won abt 44% of Hispanics in 2014, including 51% of Hispanic men. Gov. Rick Perry won abt 40% of Hispanics in his many elections throughout the 2000s. Even now, Abbott and Valdez (who is Hispanic) are splitting the Hispanic vote 46-50.
