New at @CookPolitical: House rating changes in 20 districts, all towards Democrats. I can’t recall the last time we moved so many races at once, let alone in the same direction.
More @CookPolitical: for the first time this cycle, Democrats have at least as good a chance of picking up House seats as Republicans on a net basis. cookpolitical.com/analysis/house…

Feels like we’ve done this before. Back on the protest beat this morning, this time with the Back the Blue rally at #Omaha’s Memorial Park. I’ll be live tweeting as I did from the Black Lives Matter protests. Thanks for following.
Hard to tell who painted what, but some folks left messages in chalk on the sidewalks at Memorial Park. A few are vulgar and won’t be shared here.
Here are some more of the images.

1/4. The military faces a moral crisis. The current president has made clear that our loyalty is to him, not the Constitution, but him alone. The #NavySecretary clumsy words and actions are reflective of this view.
2/4. @RepDonBacon @DonJBacon, a Brig Gen, and his supporters @dcrponline and @NEGOP must answer why The Congressman has uttered no opinion, one way or another, about @SECNAV. Surely he has an opinion, but he will not comment, as @SenatorFischer rightly did.
3/4. Those of us #Veterans in #Nebraska who served deserve an answer. Frankly, Congressman, I am less concerned with where you stand on this than the fact that you remain silent, as if the military we both love is not in crisis. It is in crisis.

Big day of speakers in the #NE02 House race.

Getting ready to hear @RepJayapal speak at a @karaforcongress rally.

Tonight @GOPLeader speaks to the @dcrponline on behalf of @RepDonBacon.

We @OWHnews are here. Let us know what you’d like to know.
Eastman is in a three-way Dem primary with @Gladys4Congress and @Ann_Ashford. But @karaforcongress has an edge in name ID. She was the @NebraskaDems’ nominee in 2018. She lost to @DonJBacon by about two percentage points, essentially in Sarpy County’s Republican-leaning firewall.
One question many have asked about @karaforcongress was whether she might bank more toward the center this time to try to appeal more to moderates in both major parties.

At least in the primary so far, the answer is no.

‼️PROGRESSIVES‼️

We must remember down-ballot candidates.

This is a list of progressive/leftist congressional candidates endorsed by at least one of these groups:

@BrandNew535
@BoldProgressive
@justicedems
@pdamerica
@RoseCaucus

#UniteLeft
#Progress2020
Please remember:

⚠️STATE CANDIDATE PRIMARIES MAY BE ON DIFFERENT DATES THAN THE PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY⚠️

Double check your registration at least 1 MONTH 🗓 before any election you plant to vote in.

Also, endorsements are an ongoing process
Some races have 2 different candidates endorsed by different groups, so they’re both listed.

Legend:
📖➡️ platform/issues link
💵➡️ donation link

If the pinned tweet is related to their campaign, I included it.

Now, onto the (long) list.

A very plausible 2020 scenario Dems have to take seriously:

Trump loses popular vote by ~5 million as Dems narrow deficit in TX, expand lead in CA & flip MI/PA blue

BUT Trump narrowly holds onto AZ, FL, NC & WI and wins reelection by a single electoral vote.
A couple more thoughts on this:

1) Of the states above, AZ & WI strike me as the likeliest to be decisive “tipping point” states
2) FL is trending poorly for Dems & AZ/NC likely to be riper targets
3) If it comes down to one vote, Omaha’s #NE02 more winnable for Dems than #ME02
Here's more or less what this nightmare scenario for Dems looks like in the @FiveThirtyEight Swing-o-Matic (replace Clinton's name w/ whatever Dem you wish): 53eig.ht/21wa4Aw#NCEW:0…

🚨“CONGRESSIONAL LEADERSHIP FUND” THREAD🚨

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.
opensecrets.org/news/2018/08/w…
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.

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:

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.
