I’m getting a lot of this:

“I supported the blue wave and for what? Democrats aren’t living up to their end of the bargain.”

It’s time to dispel the myth that blue wave activism was a down payment on impeachment.

It was not. Zero seats flipped on an impeachment platform. /1
I get it. This is very frustrating and slow. It seems so obvious. And we expect people to lead on principle, not on politics.

Set aside your frustrations with Dem leadership for a moment and think back to the blue wave districts that flipped red to blue. /2
I interviewed and published a sizable chunk of Dems who flipped seats in 2018. I asked them explicitly about impeachment. They were across-the-board non-committal. That’s not what they ran on. They ran on healthcare. They ran on voting rights. They ran on the environment. /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.

Just a few days before being called out by @JeffreyToobin on @CNN Kris Kobach met with Steve Bannon in Western Kansas.

Bannon had a little rally, 25 people, at what appeared to be a Best Western in Western Kansas.

Kris Kobach hearing the truth about his voter suppression last night on @CNN
I stand corrected, not Western Kansas, But Topeka Kansas. Which is worse IMO to this troll in our Capital

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.

Remember when Trump diverted $10 Million from FEMA to create more immigrant detention centers? He needed one person in the House to approve this, and that one person was Rep. Yoder of #KS03. Pls donate to @sharicedavids to flip #KS03! #FlipTheHouse… 1/

As Green Day once sang: “Do You Know Your Enemy?”

If not, we need to have a talk about the Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPac).

THEY ARE THE ENEMY of the 2018 Midterm Elections and they WILL cost us seats IF we let them.
The CLF is a right-wing SuperPAC spearheaded by Paul Ryan. It’s goal is to lie about and smear as many Democratic candidates as possible.

They have raised more than $100Million from billionaires looking to keep the GOP in power.…
Back in May, Paul Ryan personally solicited billionaire Sheldon Adelson for $30Million for the CLF. He made the pitch and then walked out of the room so that someone else could make the actual “ask”, in order to avoid campaign finance violations.…

#OH12 left us with a cliffhanger. We all worked so hard to give @dannyoconnor1 an outright win. Yes it's a steep climb, but it could still happen. Either way, we did good!

But let's not overlook the OTHER good House news from last night.
In "Toss-up" #MI08 Democratic primary voters OUT-VOTED Republican primary voters.

Democrat Elissa Slotkin (@ElissaSlotkin) is going to FLIP this seat right out from under incumbent GOP Rep. Mike Bishop.

But only if we help her right now.

Register. Vote. DONATE. Volunteer.
In "Toss-up" open seat #MI11, Democratic primary voters OUT-VOTED Republican primary voters.

But Democrat Haley Stevens (@HaleyLive) needs to hit the ground running if we want to FLIP this seat.

So let's get started.

Register. Vote. DONATE. Volunteer.

And #KS03 is still undecided!!!!!
#BrentWelder is ahead, but #ShariceDavids is closing the gap!
Johnson county is a must-win.
6% difference between #BrentWelder and #ShariceDavids. #TomNiermann has conceded.
Welder has to get to 50%
He's at 39, Davids is at 33, Niermann at 14.8 and the other Dems at 13.5 combined.
Johnson county is key.
#ShariceDavids is climbing in the vote count. She's narrowed the gap to 5%. The vote difference is currently 1,500 votes between her and #BrentWelder.
40% of the votes have been counted.

Early results have @sharicedavids leading
with 33% in #KS03.
New results have Welder moving ahead of Davids in #KS03.
But still only one precinct reporting. Results were delayed because folks were still in line an hour later than the polls were scheduled to close.
This #KS03 will be long because of early balloting.
As much, if not more, of a nail-biter than #OH12.
Keep thinking #FlipItFemale!

Trump has repeatedly tried to push her opponent, Kevin Yoder, from his Twitter account.

If you want to stick it to Trump, rage donate to @sharicedavids with me:

I was going to go out for dinner somewhere but I think I'm just gonna eat in & send that money to support @sharicedavids

Women are the heart of the #BlueWave and Davis is fighting for a very flippable #KS03 seat.

For blue staters, these are the kinds of races we can impact.
We're all spread thin and all have bills, bills and more bills but we've got one shot to put our best candidates forward and then support their runs.

I'd rather skip a treat tonight than lose my appetite when the results role in on Election Night in Nov.

Maybe we could even make this a thing.

There's a whole lot of stuff we could probably do without in life without feeling major pain.

Skipping Starbucks some morn ain't a life changer but 100,000 $5 donations could truly impact several small races.

1. At @DemsWork4USA we are supportive of progressive candidates that win their districts. We are supportive of @Ocasio2018 - she is positioned to win a highly blue community and we're excited for the impact she can make in her district. That impact matters.
2. Using that win to advocate for candidates that are unsuited for their districts is not a strategically sound tactic. Pro-Bernie pacs may be pushing her in this direction, but it isn't advisable for the district or for her and her constituents.
3. Pre-election, she should be laser focused on her constituents and their particular issues. She's not a pawn nor symbol -- nor should she wish to be. Anyone who truly cares about flipping seats in conservative districts should not be making this a referendum on Bernie.
