If Democrats win the Kentucky governor's race, Andy Beshear has promised to restore voting rights to more than 100,000 citizens whom GOP Gov. Matt Bevin has kept disenfranchised #KYgov dailykos.com/stories/2019/5…
Kentucky bans 1 in 11 adults from voting, including 1 in 4 black adults, the highest rate of any state in the country. This is the context in which this election is taking place, & it's profoundly undemocratic sentencingproject.org/wp-content/upl…
The Democratic poll has Dems easily winning the #KYsos election. There's been very little polling of Kentucky's governor election, let alone for secretary of state, so it's hard to get a read on how competitive this race is in such a conservative state

#Predictions for the rest of 2019:
1. Trump’s #dementia worsens.
2. Try as he may, Bolton fails to start war with #Iran.
3. Democratic candidates pick up seats in #NJLeg #KYLeg #VALeg #MSLeg & #LALeg.
4. Bots from Iran/Syria/Russia will wreck havoc on the Internet one day by retweeting like a DOS attack.
5. #Brexit will be extended yet again until 2020.
6. Interest rates will spike, but corporate stock buybacks will continue to prop up the stock market until late in the year.
6. Due to Trump’s tariffs on Chinese goods, other countries raise prices opportunistically. #Inflation heats up on durable goods and many other products. (H/t to Art Leonard)
7. School shootings return as usual.
8. No #InfrastructureWeek happens.

Let's not talk about 2020 yet. Let's talk about 2019.

There are some important elections coming up next year: #KYGov, #LAGov, #MSGov, and the state legislatures of VA and NJ.
#MSGov is almost certainly going to favor Republicans, but don't count Democrats out.

The seat is open, and we have a potential candidate, AG Jim Hood, who has already won statewide office there.
#LAGov will be a challenge. We won that seat in 2015 because Republicans nominated basically the most unpopular politician in the state.

They won't make that mistake again. Bel Edwards is in for a fight.
