[Thread] This week's Voting Rights Roundup newsletter: 2018 was a smashing win for North Carolina democracy, breaking the GOP's veto-proof legislative majorities & paving the way for the Dem-majority NC Supreme Court to strike down the GOP's gerrymanders dailykos.com/stories/2018/1…
Florida voters delivered a huge blow against a remnant of Jim Crow by automatically restoring voting rights to up to 1.4 million people who have fully completed their felony sentences. FL had barred 1 in 10 adults from voting, including 1 in 5 black people dailykos.com/stories/2018/1…
Michigan voters struck a critical blow against GOP gerrymandering by passing an independent redistricting commission. The GOP has won at least 1 legislative chamber despite losing the popular vote in 5 of the last 9 elections, including both chambers 2018 dailykos.com/stories/2018/1…

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. buzzfeednews.com/article/kather…
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: idsnews.com/article/2018/1…

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🧐

📣2018 FLORIDA STATE SENATE THREAD📣

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!

If you see a Poll Look For:

" ALL Adults"
or
"Registered Voters"

It's utter garbage. .

If a Poll says "Likely Voters"

See Below for full explanation

Trump Approval
Among " ALL Adults": - 45-52%

“We’re not negotiating with Canada right now,”
Mr. Trump said at a cabinet meeting on Thursday.

“Their tariffs are too high; their barriers are too strong.
So we’re not even talking to Canada them right now.”

Laughter takes down Power.
Every Time.
It exposes the absurd positions, pokes fun of authority, and creates real dialogue.

Laughing at hypocrisy and stupidity make Liberals lose control.

Liberals must kill comedy.

Rough 2018 TV spending numbers in #flgov primary:

Greene: $13,495,158
Levine: $10,685,644
Graham: $5,402,488
King: $3,877,897
Gillum: $98,490

But not all TV is equal. In gross rating points...
Broadcast TV gross rating points through this week:

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
