CALIFORNIA: may lose a seat for the first time since statehood. At serious risk in that scenario (right): LA County and #CA25 Rep. Mike Garcia (R).

Not at much risk: Reps. Kevin McCarthy (R) #CA23 and Devin Nunes (R) #CA22. Full report @CookPolitical: cookpolitical.com/analysis/house…
If CA does lose a seat, the commission is likely to axe a seat in slow-growing LA County. But even if it eliminates a Dem-held seat in central LA, that could pull surrounding seats inward, making #CA25 (right) a Biden +20 district - unwinnable for Garcia (R).
One LA district at risk of getting axed: Rep. Nanette Barragan (D)'s #CA44, which was originally drawn as a Black opportunity district and isn't performing. But she's bordered by three Dem incumbents age 79+, and could easily run for one of their seats if one retires.

5 days ago, I tweeted that I was angry.

I channeled my anger into action & created plans to flip the House from 🔵🔜🔴.

President Trump even retweeted me 4 times.

The fact of the matter is that no one is coming to save us & we need to to it ourselves.

In 2018, the democrats flipped California’s 25th Congressional District from red to blue.

Disgraced democrat Katie Hill resigned, leaving the seat vacant.

There’s a special election to fill the seat on May 12th.

You can sign up to make phone calls here:

California’s 39th Congressional District is flippable from 🔵🔜🔴.

Our Republican candidate is @YoungKimCA.

I’ve taken #coronavirus seriously from Day 1. Today marks 8 weeks since I pushed the CDC to brief Congress on the threat posed by #COVID_19. Since then, I’ve been working around the clock to address this crisis. Here’s some of what I’ve been up to: (THREAD)
When Orange County had one of the first confirmed cases of coronavirus in the United States, I immediately sent a letter to the CDC. At the time, I was one of a few federal officials calling for us to prepare for this now-pandemic. (2/?)
One of my top responsibilities as a Congressmember is to keep #CA45 residents informed about the facts. That’s why I produced a FAQ on the coronavirus outbreak and have been updating it regularly since January. (3/?)

These last few weeks have been hard on our community, but in the midst of this difficult time I want to take a second to recognize some of the really important, collaborative work coming out of Orange County on the front lines of the fight against #COVID_19. ⬇️⬇️
We in Orange County are so fortunate to have excellent universities and cutting-edge research in our own backyard. I’m glad to see @UCIrvine at the forefront of potentially life-saving innovation.

ocregister.com/2020/03/23/uci…
In addition, I’m proud to see #CA45 businesses like @MasimoInnovates working hard to make sure patients can get the care they need through innovative new medical technology.

🗳️ 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.

We must remember down-ballot candidates.

This is a list of progressive/leftist congressional candidates endorsed by at least one of these groups:

@BrandNew535
@BoldProgressive
@justicedems

@RoseCaucus

#UniteLeft
#Progress2020
Please remember:

⚠️STATE CANDIDATE PRIMARIES MAY BE ON DIFFERENT DATES THAN THE PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY⚠️

Also, endorsements are an ongoing process
Some races have 2 different candidates endorsed by different groups, so they’re both listed.

If the pinned tweet is related to their campaign, I included it.

Now, onto the (long) list.

At a hearing in April, I asked @jpmorgan CEO Jamie Dimon how a single parent working full-time at his bank in #CA45 could make ends meet. He said he'd "have to think about it."

Over two months later, I still haven't received any follow up from him.
So I sent Mr. Dimon a letter today to continue to conversation we started in April. As I write in the letter, "it is patently unfair to force employees to bear layoffs and stagnant wages in hard times and not lift them up in good times."
For a refresher on the conversation I had with Mr. Dimon, watch me recap with @Lawrence.

I introduced bipartisan legislation yesterday to protect Orange County families from rising taxes if they deduct for medical expenses by permanently lowering the threshold for this deduction.
Today my bill received the endorsement of @AARP: “Every effort should be made to keep the threshold for the deduction as low as possible to help protect those with high medical costs.” ImageImage
I was proud to work across the aisle with @RepKenMarchant on this bill, and I’ll continue to work on measures to make life easier for older residents in #CA45.

Western State law students in #CA45 still haven’t received the federal financial aid from their school that was expected in early January. I met with these students today to hear how I could best support them. This will be one of my top priorities until the situation is resolved. Image
It’s unacceptable that Argosy University and parent company Dream Center defrauded students in the 45th District and across the country. Some students are unable to pay rent or buy groceries, and $9 million of taxpayer-funded student aid has gone missing. insidehighered.com/quicktakes/201…
.@usedgov should have held Argosy and Dream Center responsible for making empty promises to students. Instead, they were given free rein to make a quick buck at students’ and taxpayers’ expenses. If @BetsyDeVosED won't bring accountability to these con artists, I will.

Last week, I gave my first speech on the House floor and told the stories of #CA45 families that have been hurt by the #TrumpShutdown. It’s time the President stop playing politics with their lives and get these folks their paychecks. (thread)
Aubrey’s family has filed paperwork to borrow against their 401(k). Borrowing against her 401(k) will come with large tax penalties, but she’s part of a single-income household living on a federal government wage. #ShutdownStories
Melinda has been working for a government agency for over 30 years. She’s debating taking out a loan and researching whether she can file for unemployment. She just paid the tuition for one of her kids at college, so she doesn’t have the means to go without a paycheck.

And now, a quick thread illustrating just how thoroughly California Republicans were obliterated in the post-election day counts.
Read 13 tweets
IMPORTANT: #CA45 & #CA39 don't be disheartened if the next couple batches of ballots counted skew GOP.

Spent most of my weekend observing the vote count in OC and LA. In OC the GOP is challenging the signature on every Dem ballot so lots of our ballots are getting pulled out.
The GOP is challenging the signature on #CA45 & #CA39 Dem ballot sat every tier when officials say they're a match.

So our ballots are there & will ve counted after extra inspections. This is not only slowing down the count, but will also produce batches w/less Dem ballots.
To be clear, I believe both #CA39 & #CA45 are going to flip. The OC Registrar is fair and ethical and isn't going to uphold frivolous challenges. These Dem ballots will be counted. It's just you might see some batches where there are less Dem ballots & then eventually, Dem ones.
