new from @AndrewStilesUSA and me in @FreeBeacon

you won't find this in @60Minutes but #CAGOV @GavinNewsom, #NYGOV @andrewcuomo and #VAGOV @RalphNortham partnered with CVS, a key donor of them and their Democratic allies, for vaccine distribution…
Campaign finance reports skillfully obtained and extensively reviewed by the @FreeBeacon show that @cvspharmacy donated tens of thousands of dollars to the @DemGovs last cycle.…
Why does it matter? According to @CBSNews's piece on #FLGOV @RonDeSantisFL: "Distributing vaccines is lucrative. Under federal guidelines, @Publix, like any other private company, can charge Medicare $40 a shot to administer the vaccine."…

The Florida governor’s race is now within the automatic recount margin (at .47 vs a required .50). Gillum concession still stands as of now but he is calling for every vote to be counted. Provisionals and absentees still being tallied. #FLGov not quite over yet.
Also as some of you have mentioned in the replies, the Democratic candidate for Agricultural Commissioner, Nikki Fried, has now gone ahead of her Republican opponent in the recount, 50%-49.9%. Welcome to Florida elections, everybody!

I wrote the thread below on Monday to preview #overlookedelectionstakes: stuff that's way-under-the-radar but so crucial. Now that you've digested the big-picture stuff, time to delve back into all that. In this new thread, I'll review the results of those stakes—& add new ones.
North Carolina: GOP's rumored hope to pack state Supreme Court was thwarted as civil rights attorney Anita Earls ousted Justice Jackson & expanded Dems' majority from 4-3 to 5-2. (Court can only have 2 more seats.) Matters for voting rights litigation. #overlookedelectionstakes
New Hampshire: Safiya Wazir, a one-time refugee, ousted state Rep. Dick Patten in a Dem primary. But Patten attacked Wazir for being an immigrant & a mother, & he endorsed Wazir's GOP opponent. Yesterday, Wazir won. She's heading to the state House. #overlookedelectionstakes

ELECTION NIGHT THREAD: This will be my thread for the night, starting with this great story from @katherinemiller, with its hour-by-hour accounting of what is going on tonight and when it's (likely) going to happen.…
And ... polls are closed in Kentucky and Indiana.
NOTE: As happens every election, there'll be a couple polling places/counties in several states that stay open later due to issues from earlier in the day. So, check your specific county/polling place if you need to vote! For ex, Monroe County in Indiana:…

Wait? The oh so charming Omar Smith from Gillum’s campaign was also the treasurer of a PAC? Aren’t they not supposed to coordinate directly with candidates? #FLGov
Should be noted the PAC’s status was recently revoked, Omar wasn’t a very good treasurer probably distracted by all the damn crackers.…
Last letter on file to Omar was October 1st🧐…

Democrats in Florida have 2 chances to make history in 2018:

1. By electing @andrewgillum to #FLGov.

2. By taking the FL State Senate back after *24* years.

If you know of ANYONE in Florida, or have ANY Floridian followers, please share!
The Florida State Senate is made up of 40 seats.

22 seats are currently held by Republicans, 16 are held by Democrats, and 2 are vacant.

Democrats need a net gain of +5 seats in order to take the chamber.
Florida State Senate elections are staggered, so only 22 of the 40 seats are up for grabs in 2018.

Gaining 5 seats is tough, but the numbers prove it’s doable.

Please spread the word about these Democratic contenders!

Levine: $10,685,644
Graham: $5,402,488
King: $3,877,897

Levine: 33,390
Greene: 32,990
King: 21,657
Graham: 9,490
Gillum: 0

What this means is...
Hypothetically, spread over 10 markets imperfectly because markets are different and not everyone is spending in all, the average voter has seen ads by these candidates this many times:

Levine: 33
Greene: 33
King: 21
Graham: 11 (number above was actually 11,417 GRPs)
Gillum: 0
