I want you all to know @DrChristineMann is fighting #COVID19 on the frontlines daily as a physician while doing weekly virtual Townhalls to answer questions about the virus, taking the time to personally contact families that are effected AND running for Congress in #TX31. 1)
When my 24 yr. old grandson became ill over 2weeks ago she called or texted my daughter & me several times a day. It was near impossible to get a doctor’s appointment or medical assistance. @DrChristineMann told my daughter to take him to the ER where he was 2)
hospitalized with Covid related pneumonia. If it had not been for @DrChristineMann I don’t know what would have happened to my sweet boy. Christine is already a leader. You can find more up to date #COVIDー19 info on her page christine4congress.com 3)

Dear Bell County Judge Blackburn

Have you ever intubated a patient?

Have you ever stood by the bedside watching your patient struggled to breathe as their lungs filled with fluid?

#TX31
Have you ever had them try to yank your hands away as you try to save them with a breathing tube and a ventilator? Have you ever had to tie their hands to the bed rails to keep them from pulling their breathing tube out?

#TX31
Have you ever watched them die anyway, even after you did every damn thing you could to keep them alive? Do you know how much worse it is when you don’t even have the tools to try save them?

No?

Maybe you should listen to those of us who have.

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

I appreciate my opponent in #TX31 taking a moment to address concerns about #Coronavirus; however, his article misses the mark in discussing why there is real concern within the medical community.

1/8

statesman.com/opinion/202003…
First of all, no one has asserted that the President has defunded the CDC.

But what @JudgeCarter fails to mention is that the President *did* dismantle the US Pandemic Response team to save money. That is the applicable issue here.

2/8
Pandemic response teams are *necessary* on an on-going basis to address issues like Ebola, pandemic flu seasons, and in our current case, #Coronavirus.

There's some great news re: down ballot races in TX.

Texas? Yes, TX is competitive for #NotMeUs & Our Bern-effect is real.

Last nite was rough but we need to Fight On!

Here are some highlights from TX.
BIG WIN HERE.
@AdrBell rec'd 62% in #TX14 to move on to Gen Election for a rematch against GOP incumbent.

This is a chance to flip Red to #ProgBlue and expand Progressive Representation in The House.

She'll need grassroots funding to beat the GOPer.

In #TX10 @SiegelForTexas placed 1st in Dem Primary & that's something we can ALL celebrate.

Mike got 44% so he faces a runoff May 26 against 2nd place finisher who had 33%.

In the GE Mike will face GOP incumbent for a chance to flip to #ProgBlue.

Tested it out with this new KY map. Based on 2016-2019 results, intrigued how it would do in 2020. The #KY04 (R+7 PVI) seems more competitive than the real #KY06 (R+9), with the movement in the Cincinnati and Lexington suburbs. 2/27 davesredistricting.org/join/d389d8e2-…
However, I also did a bunch of Democratic gerrymanders after 2012 redistricting to compare with the real Republican ones. Thought I’d review how my designs performed in light of 2016. The contrast shows just how much of a difference partisan control makes (spoiler: a lot). 3/27

Turning Texas Blue and the Consequences for America.

A thread.

I'm Donna Imam, a Computer Engineer from Austin Texas running for US Congress in the northern suburbs of Austin Williamson and Bell Counties aka #TX31. Here’s “Why I’m Running for Congress”: votefordonna.com/why
Why should you care? Because this district #TX31 is 2.9% from flipping BLUE.

Why does that matter? Texas is gerrymandered and this district has been red from its inception. In 2018 Williamson County already went BLUE. As an engineer and emerging tech researcher I got curious.
So I spent the last 6 months researching this district myself personally and what I found was astounding!

Texas Democrats are politically disengaged. They do not believe that Texas can be BLUE, or their vote could matter, so they stay home and don’t show for primary elections

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.

Today, @JudgeJohnCarter held his first Town Hall meeting in years. Maybe his motivation was that he almost lost his seat in 2018. Who knows. Anyway, it was barely publicized and was not on his FB page or website. We found out about it by chance. #TX31 1/10
We had no problems getting in and asking our questions. Here are a few highlights. 2/10
1st question was on for-profit prisons, CoreCivic, etc. including why he took PAC money from those groups. Seemed upset by the suggestion and defended ICE detention centers as “safe”. Went off the rails and mentioned that he was against marijuana because it’s illegal. 3/10

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…

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.

Holy crap. The new Sabato Crystal Ball House ratings change is...big.

This is the first time the Crystal Ball has given Democrats better than 50/50 odds of taking the House. And there is a LOT to unpack here.

centerforpolitics.org/crystalball/ar…
Here are Sabato's topline changes.

5 races are no longer Safe R: #IA04, #IN02, #IN09, #PA16, #TX31

3 races shift from Likely R to Lean R: #AR02, #FL16, #NM02

9 more R seats are now Tossups: #IA03, #IL06, #KY06, #MI08, #OH01, #OH12, #TX07, #WV03

And #FL13 is now Safe D.
Here are a few takeaways:

-White nationalist Rep. Steve King has a credible challenge
-IN and WV have competitive House races (and the extra attention from Ds could help their senators here)
-#OH12 special is REALLY close
-Dem women vets (McGrath, Hegar) are kicking ass.

We'll know soon enough, but I think this take will quickly be proven wrong re: @mjhegar's #TX31 viral ad: texastribune.org/2018/06/25/vir…
My personal opinion is that this sort of investment was exactly the sort of thing that @mjhegar needed to do in order to gain traction. She has an incredible, literally made-for-Hollywood, life story. Broadcasting it to the world was the best play.

Money well spent.
It's like... have these party operatives even HEARD of @AmyMcGrathKY?

Yesterday, #COTD @BenMcAdams rode your #BlueWave2018🌊 from 7.6k followers to 8430! ❤️ Great job, y'all!

This #SaturdayMorning, we are doing a special #COTD to support #MarchForOurLives

We asked #BWCS endorsed candidates where they stand on #GunReform

.@PiattPatti's son died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

"Watching others lose a child and knowing what they feel brings it all back. I don't have a problem with responsible gun ownership, but there is nothing responsible about owning an AR-15."

"If we want teachers to have to ability to make offensive measures, why not non-lethal weapons? It's terrible that we would have to, but if we do, that route should not be firearms." -@TomPrigg2018
