NEW at @CookPolitical: 10 rating changes (7 towards Ds, 3 towards Rs) as Democrats' edge in the battle for the House grows...
Basically, #COVID19 has all but frozen House recruitment & severely curtailed fundraising. That's an advantage for incumbents & bad news for upstates.

At end of 2019, median House D in a Trump district had $1.8 million cash on hand while median leading R challenger had $247,000.
Today, we've moved four freshman Dems out of Toss Up based on the weakness of their GOP opposition:

#IL14 Lauren Underwood (D) - Toss Up to Lean D
#MI08 Elissa Slotkin (D) - Toss Up to Lean D
#NY19 Antonio Delgado (D) - Toss Up to Lean D
#UT04 Ben McAdams (D) - Toss Up to Lean D

@CatalinaLauf SHE SUPPORTS LEGAL, NOT ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION!!

"I am a direct product of the American Dream.

My mother and grandmother legally immigrated to this country from Guatemala. My father is a small-business owner from Chicago.
@CatalinaLauf .

My story is only possible because of their hard work and sacrifice. They taught me the values of hard work, personal responsibility, and to have an unapologetic love of our country."

1)One thing that I have found out is that when you are getting heavy flak, you are over the target. It seems that the false &/or petty attacks are really centered on 1 #GOP #IL14 candidate, coming from both parties, & that is @CatalinaLauf #OurFutureOurFight matches well here...
2)Not because she did anything wrong, but nonsense like gaps in employment history (anyone in their 20s not have gaps in their employment History), & not aware of the name of every leftist Bill/Amendment that has no chance regardless of her knowledge on what she's passionate #smh
3)Also, let's drain precious resources from a local Campaign in farce court proceedings on a claim of falsified signatures even though she had well over the amount with greater than 90% deemed perfect meaning no one did research, just a local #WitchHunt

Dear:
@Senatemajldr @HouseGOP @GOPLeader @SenateGOP
and RNCC @GOPChairwoman
cc @POTUS @realDonaldTrump @TrumpWarRoom @MattWolking @HoganGidley45 @mercedesschlapp
It is my understanding that @JimOberweis IL-14 is considering running for Rooney’s vacant seat since he has a home
in FL. Trump’s base is not fond of this candidate at all and is a liability to all of us. Why? 1. IL residents have not forgotten that he voted “present” on doubling the gas tax rather than voting against it.2. He is known as a “never Trumper” but now says he supports the
President but just doesn’t like how he does things. That statement alone says volumes about him. In our opinion that just makes him another Murkowski and Collins. Speaking of Collins, we are terribly disappointed there are no conservative candidates running against her.

Time for super pacs to start running ads in these districts letting voters know if these people vote for impeachment, they get voted out. Period.
We're gonna make these people famous today

From now until Wednesday, it's time to put pressure on these Dems:

You vote with AOC and impeachment, and you're toast. She's in New York City and doesn't give a shit you're in a red district.

Voting for censure is your only way out
HERE THEY ARE

PRESSURE THEM TO VOTE AGAINST IMPEACHMENT. ONLY CENSURE CAN SAVE THEM.

I just wrapped up the House Homeland Security hearing where I questioned Sec. Nielsen about the policies her Department implemented. When I joined Congress I swore to protect #IL14 and our country. How does detaining children and separating families make us safer? It doesn't. /1
Children detained at our border experience inhumanely low temperatures & are malnourished & caged. Many have experienced abuse. All are now at risk for learning delays, mental health issues, & assorted illness. This health & humanitarian crisis is caused by our own government. /2
Sec. Nielsen had few answers for me & showed herself to be uninformed on the impact of her Department's policies. That won’t fly anymore. To those in our administration who would harm children and families, I say: you answer to Our House now. /3

Trade was "extremely important" for 25% of voters, or 11th most important of 12 issues. Only Russia was lower.
Trade was extremely or very important for 61% of voters, at 10th place - below Kavanaugh and above climate change/Russia.
news.gallup.com/poll/244367/to…
This confirms my intuition. Trade can't be completely disregarded as an issue, but neither should it occupy pride of place. For a decent chunk of voters, it's something they feel passionately about. For a majority of voters, it's something they follow.
Politicians like Sherrod Brown - who do well in Midwestern swing states - emphasize their populist bonafides on the issue.

🚨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.

Why the slight shift? Let me try to explain what we've observed move post-Labor Day. There are basically 3 large buckets of House races we're watching...
1) Vulnerable Rs in upscale, suburban, Clinton-won "Whole Foods" districts like #VA10 Comstock, #KS03 Yoder, #CO06 Coffman, #MN03 Paulsen, #CA45 Walters, #NJ07 Lance, etc. These Rs are mostly trailing & their numbers haven't gotten any better recently.
2) Competitive races in redder, working-class districts that Trump won by double digits in '16, such as #IL12 Bost, #MN08 OPEN, #NY22 Tenney, #WV03 OPEN, etc. Overall, things have slightly improved in "Trump zones" for Rs, w/ notable exceptions in districts like #KS02 & #ME02.

Q2 Fundraising is over, and Democrats did a great job!

But I was chatting with @ybbkaren and an interesting question came up:

With SO MANY great candidates, how do we decide who needs donations the most? Many are worthy, but our personal funds are not unlimited.
So I came up with an idea for my own list of Dems who need $$$ based upon the following criteria:

*They have won their primary
*They are trying to flip “swing” GOP-held seats (per @CookPolitical ratings)
*They are behind their GOP opponents in “Cash on Hand” (per @OpenSecretsDC)
That’s not to say that other Democrats in swing districts are not worthy. They are. But the following, from a strategic $$$ perspective, might be the best place to donate *for now*.

This is the list of those House candidates, and their donation links, based on that criteria:

🚨 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.
