Getting this thread going on what races to donate to….

Right now, 44 days out, is the best time to donate. A few states are early voting. Voters are paying attention and can still register.

Campaigns can still hire staff and pay for strategic, targeted ads and mailers.
Money thrown at races in Oct goes into media spin. Unclear if it's effective at persuasion.

Millions of $$$ from out of state donors, raised by national orgs, doesn't mean your race is competitive. So it's doubly important for us to pick a few races/states and be strategic.
It's sweet to ragedonate for RBG. But it's smarter to flip the Senate, cement the House majority, and win key states in the electoral college. All states and races aren't equal.

A few thousand $ to a House race or $1 million to an underfunded Senate race can make the difference.

It appears that @parscale is using his position as Trump’s campaign manager to manipulate the outcome of the Republican run-off election in #Texas #CD23.
Tony Gonzales vs Raul Reyes (1/9)
Both candidates have expressed their support for Trump, yet in an interview with the San Antonio Express on 9/30/19 , #Gonzales stated that he was “concerned by revelations of Trump’s entreaties to Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden.” (2/10)
In the same article, #Gonzales stated that “he hadn’t fully developed a position one way or the other on the upcoming #impeachment proceedings.” (3/10)

Please read and share my post on corrupt #TX23 congressional candidate #TonyGonzales. He is buying shiny new things, using campaign contributions to pay a personal loan and lawyers for the lawsuits against him; owes people lots of money. He would be a disaster as a congressman!!

Huge news for Dems: Rep. Will Hurd (R) to retire in 2020. He's probably the only R capable of holding the seat. #TX23 moves from Toss Up to Lean D at @CookPolitical.
@CookPolitical Texodus? After Olson & Hurd, attention shifts to GOP Reps. Mike McCaul in #TX10, Kenny Marchant in #TX24, John Carter in #TX31, who also won by skin of their teeth in 2018. This could get out of hand for Rs.
@CookPolitical Hurd is one of just 3 remaining House Rs in districts won by Hillary Clinton in 2016, the House's only black Republican, and is now the sixth Republican - and the third from TX - to announce retirement plans in the past ten days.

HOLY CRAP! One of just three House Republicans who holds a Hillary Clinton district announced he won't run again in 2020. This is about the worst possible retirement for House Republicans
Retiring #TX23 Rep. Will Hurd is also one of many Republicans who owes his entire congressional career to gerrymandering, having barely won in 2014, 2016, & 2018 thanks to a racial gerrymander that SCOTUS let the GOP get away with
Texas could be a bloodbath for Republicans in 2020. Democrats could flip several more House seats, there's a 2020 Senate election, four critical state Supreme Court elections, & Democrats could flip the state House in time to stop a post-2020 GOP congressional gerrymander

NEW 💻 AD: We just launched our largest voter contact ad of the 2020 election cycle to date -- a Spanish-language digital ad exposing Rep. @WillHurd’s failure to stand up for migrant children who were left behind in a Texas detention facility van. #TX23
cbsnews.com/news/democrats…
Our ad reads: “¿Por qué el Congresista Hurd no ha abogado por los niños inmigrantes que han sido abandonados en camionetas?”

Translation: “Why hasn't Congressman Will Hurd spoken up for immigrant children left in vans?”
Earlier this month, a botched effort by the Trump administration left 37 migrant children in a van “under the blistering Texas sun” -- most for at least 23 hours.

Rep. @WillHurd failed to convince his party to take action against these kinds of abuses.

Finally catching up on 2018 statewide results by leg. district, recently made available by @TXLegeCouncil. In the U.S. House, here are the Republicans in districts that @BetoORourke won:
- #TX10: @RepMcCaul (O'Rourke +0.1)
- #TX24: @RepKenMarchant (+3.5)
- #TX23: @WillHurd (+5)
In the Texas Senate, here are the Republicans in districts that @BetoORourke won:
- #SD08: @SenPaxton (O'Rourke +2)
- #SD17: @joanhuffman (+4.3)
- #SD19: @PeteFlores_TX (+14.5)
(Worth noting: Flores is the only one up for re-election next year.) #txlege
In the Texas House, there are nine Republicans in districts that @BetoORourke won:
- Allison (O'Rourke +0.3)
- Stucky (+0.5)
- Miller (+1.6)
- Leach (+5.5)
- Shaheen (+5.7)
- Bohac (+6.3)
- Button (+9.6)
- Meyer (+15.2)
- S. Davis (+21.3) #txlege

Whoa: TLC calculates Beto O'Rourke won a 76-74 majority of Texas state House districts, giving Dems a clear path to flipping the 9 seats they need for a majority. This is the most crucial chamber up in 2020 for congressional redistricting (h/t @trowaman) texastribune.org/2019/02/25/whe…
It almost blew up in their faces with several races only narrowly going GOP, but Texas' congressional gerrymander was a major boost to GOP in 2018. Under a nonpartisan map like this, they'd have likely lost 4 more districts (#TX06, #TX10, #TX23, & #TX25) dailykos.com/stories/2017/7…
Democrats flipping the Texas state House in 2020 & denying the GOP the power to gerrymander again after the census could be worth several congressional seats next decade, more than practically any other state

BREAKING: After flipping FORTY seats from red to blue in 2018, we've officially got our sights set on THIRTY-THREE more -- and we're ready to get to work!

Take a look at our first offensive battlefield of the 2020 cycle:
Our Chair @CheriBustos is keeping her promises and wasting no time by working to expand our Democratic House Majority.
Presidential approval polls in 2020 are shaping up to be a lot like 2008 -- when Democrats continued the blue wave from the midterm. History is on our side, which means Democrats are poised to expand our House Majority even further. fivethirtyeight.com/features/the-2…

🚨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.

We've traveled 1000s of miles on a mission to meet the voters who could matter the most tomorrow.

Many feel alienated and want to be heard -- everything from climate change to an economy they say is struggling *no matter what Trump says.*

Watch more: on.today.com/2SJCGHz
Some of our stops:

#ME2: Mars Hill, Millenocket, Bangor, Stonington
#NY11: Staten Island, Bensonhurst
#FL26: Miami, Homestead, the Keys
#TX23: San Antonio, Crystal City, Eagle Pass, El Paso, Tornillo
#CA48, #CA45, #CA39: Newport, Irvine, Yorba Linda
#CO6: Aurora, Centennial
It's not over yet -- not even close.

@SavannahGuthrie is spot-on.

We really have no clue what's gonna happen.

It'll come down to who shows up, and it's looking like a *huge* wave of voters -- and real change -- could be coming.

Now that @BetoORourke has almost $40 million fundraised, it's high time he actually put it to use.

He already has a great ground game. Now get on TV and correct the narrative. Take out huge blocks of airtime. Both positive AND negative ads.
There are several Cowboys games that will take place between now and the election. @BetoORourke should drop a ton of ads during those games.

He should focus ads heavily on competitive districts. #TX07. #TX21. #TX31. #TX32. A blitz of Spanish-language ads in #TX23.
Hell, with this kind of money @BetoORourke should be able to rent fleets of buses to go into poor, minority neighborhoods and shuttle people to the polls for free on every day of early voting.

He doesn't need to prioritize anymore. He can do it all. He should do it all.
