Earlier today, we had a round table with domestic violence center managers, YMCA directors, health services officers, food assistance providers, air traffic controllers, lawyers, immigrant assistance groups and a farmer to talk about the effects of the shutdown. Thread: /1
For context, #IL06 has comparatively few federal workers relative to other congressional districts (4,255). But we have a HUGE number of people who depend on those federal workers who's voices also need to be heard. /2
Providers of family protective services noted that there has been a huge increase in call volume to rape crisis centers since the Kavanaugh hearing. Local YMCA is on a July fiscal year - they are already over last year's call volume. Let that sink in. /3

🚨MY MASTER THREAD of #Midterm2018 results analysis, including an array of data dives. Will the country chose to repudiate president Trump? Health care instead of the wall? RT & strap in, folks, tonight could be a wild ride. We get the first batch of results at around 6 PM ET.
Turnout has looked unprecedented for weeks now. Indications today that it could even beat these lofty expectations. At this point I think I’d buy for pickups in Tossup sub/urban seats like #TX07 #TX32 and #TX26, but sell in more rural districts that have looked like reaches.

🚨 Report Re: Polls 🚨

From #WaveCast reporter @biglifejane:

I have been a poll watcher at 3 places in the last 16 hours (we still had early voting). People should report where the bottlenecks are. My hypothesis is Boards of Elections planned for a normal mid-term level... /1
...and turnout is way higher so they are not staffed enough. Voters need to plan for longer lines, and to stay in line. We also need poll watchers to be assertive and call in concerns so that things can be fixes. /2
Lines were very long this morning in the midwest and I expect it will be more so after work today. Thanks for all you are doing. Jane in #IL06. /3

THREAD - Profiles In Cowardice: Republicans from coast to coast are refusing to debate their Democratic opponents in front of constituents. #DemsWannaDebate

A race-by-race rundown (incl. video/photos) of the most egregious cases of debate-dodging:

The bottom line message here: demand accountability and transparency in representation. And don't settle for anything less.

What follows is a series of quotes from Democrats who aren't having much luck coaxing their opponents into live debates. /2
Liz Watson wants to debate Trey Hollinsworth in #IN09. Where's @RepTrey? cc: @LizForIndiana

In my debate with @PeterRoskam earlier this week he told some real whoppers about taxes and the impact of his tax bill on the district. They are talking points completely unbuttressed by facts. But facts matter. So here's a thread...
2/ First, he repeated his line that the "average median" family in #IL06 earns $135K/year. This is wrong in three really important ways. roskam.house.gov/media-center/p…
3/ (a) The average family in #IL06 earns $125K. (b) The median family in #IL06 earns $97K. (c) "average median" isn't a thing. census.gov/mycd/?st=17&cd… #factsmatter #mathisreal

Holy crap. The new Sabato Crystal Ball House ratings change is...big.

This is the first time the Crystal Ball has given Democrats better than 50/50 odds of taking the House. And there is a LOT to unpack here.

centerforpolitics.org/crystalball/ar…
Here are Sabato's topline changes.

5 races are no longer Safe R: #IA04, #IN02, #IN09, #PA16, #TX31

3 races shift from Likely R to Lean R: #AR02, #FL16, #NM02

9 more R seats are now Tossups: #IA03, #IL06, #KY06, #MI08, #OH01, #OH12, #TX07, #WV03

And #FL13 is now Safe D.
Here are a few takeaways:

-White nationalist Rep. Steve King has a credible challenge
-IN and WV have competitive House races (and the extra attention from Ds could help their senators here)
-#OH12 special is REALLY close
-Dem women vets (McGrath, Hegar) are kicking ass.

What do we have the most control over? Voting, helping others register to vote, getting out the vote, and flipping as many seats as possible in the #Midterms2018

Here are 27 seats Democrats can pick up, followed by candidates. Direct some energy to them. 1/7

The GOP's silence about ripping children from their parents is deafening.

🚨 Please share broadly! As usual, the Kochs are dumping tons of money into GOP candidates...especially into *critical swing districts* we need to flip.

I've threaded links below to the Democratic challengers in these races. Please RT and support them! /1

I focused the list of NOMINEES. These are Democrats in swing districts who have already won their primaries and are facing off against Koch-infused Republicans in fall.
