💯 days ago this week, a newly elected class of diverse and energetic Democrats was sworn into the U.S. House, unified by a commitment to getting real results for their constituents back home. #100DaysForThePeople

In this short period of time, House Democrats have been busy making good on their campaign promises to tackle the rising cost of premiums and prescription drugs, and to protect the millions of Americans with pre-existing conditions.

Here’s a recap 👇
In #MI08, Rep. @ElissaSlotkin is working hard to make health care more affordable and to protect people with pre-existing conditions.

🚨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.

Good morning RVA! Anyone remember Leon Benjamin who ran for 9th District #RVACouncil in 2016? Did you know he is the Richmond City Republican Party Chairman now?

He is out here prospecting Republican and conservative candidates to run in #RVA. 🧜🏻‍♀️
If you don’t remember Leon Benjamin from him #RVAMayor run, maybe you’ll remember him from when he was stumping for Trump on Fox News.

Or maybe you remember a week or so ago when he was with Pence stumping for Brat. #VA07 #RVACouncil 🧜🏻‍♀️
He also runs the website makervagreatagain.com

What is the point? For as “safe” as people may think #RVA is on Election Day... don’t lose sight of the fact that there are people in Richmond actively pushing Trump’s policies encouraging people to Vote Republican. 🧜🏻‍♀️

Abigail Spanberger (@SpanbergerVA07) in #VA07 brought the 🔥🔥🔥 to Dave Brat, called him out on many things including his support for the fiscally irresponsible tax bill.

Really, watch this. She's incredible.

Holy crap, he really said this.

Dave Brat to inmates: ‘You think you’re having a hard time — I’ve got $5 million in negative ads.’ #saturdaymorning #amjoy Vote @SpanbergerVA07 #VA07

🚨“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:

GOP candidate says something racist? Say NO to racism by voting for @PaulDavisKS!

"While CNN has rated the race to replace Jenkins as leaning Republican, Democrats have lined up behind former Kansas House Minority Leader Paul Davis to flip the district."
