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…

A tour de force from ⁦@GerryConnolly⁩ about Virginia’s transformation from deep red to true blue during ⁦@VaDemocracy⁩ meeting. ⁦@FairfaxDems⁩ ⁦@DranesvilleDems
@GerryConnolly @VaDemocracy @FairfaxDems @DranesvilleDems Meeting was in #Dranesville.

Connolly: "In 1980s, Dranesville was seen out of reach and the only time @TheDemocrats won was when it was a three-way race. In 2007, @JohnFoustVA was first to win one-on-one. He won't be the last. Things have changed."
@GerryConnolly @VaDemocracy @FairfaxDems @DranesvilleDems @TheDemocrats @johnfoustva In 1995, Connolly first ran for #Fairfax, VA, Board of Supervisors, it was 6 R and 4 D. Connolly made it 5-5 and sound it was majority D and we've never looked back. 2019 made it 9-1. @FCPS School Board is 12-0.

What a pleasure to get together with my colleagues to visit our Representative for #VA10 and being able to talk to a strong Democrat...our own @JenniferWexton!
This year I was asked to lead the congressional meeting with the Congresswoman as part of @AILANational #NDA2019. We stressed two things: a) zealously protecting due process of law, and b) holding federal agencies accountable.
We shared stories from our practices, talked about the invisible wall already built, judicial independence, businesses in NoVA suffering for lack of talent, and actual people from #VA10 who were forced to move to Canada or Australia because the US wouldn't approve their visas.

I'm very excited to announce that State Senator @JenniferBoysko (SD-33) endorses our campaign in my bid for the Democratic nomination for the VA House of Delegates in District 87!

#Hassan4VA
Boysko took over the state Senate seat vacated by @JenniferWexton, now our Congresswoman from #VA10.

“When I was a newly elected House of Delegates member in 2013, one of my first priorities was ensuring that our most vulnerable communities could thrive in VA," said Boysko.
"In my advocacy at the state legislature, Hassan Ahmad helped me to lift up and share the experiences of Virginia residents affected by policies like the Virginia DREAM Act and driver’s licenses for the undocumented community."

Wexton running hot in #VA10. That's the district we door-knocked in 2016, so it'd be good to see Comstock lose, even if two years late.
Sweet. MSNBC calls #VA10.
Sherrod Brown isn't a surprise, but it's a lovely moment anyway.

🚨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.

I made a list of the 55 House districts to watch, w/ the 32 key seats for Dems to win a net +23 to win the House. It’s also a viewing guide, organized roughly on poll closing times. (Based on @CookPolitical categories, @FiveThirtyEight, and the Hillary 25) shugerblog.com/2018/11/06/201…
2/ I'll post analysis of Senate and Governorships. Also watch the Attorneys General and State Supreme Court.
Texas, vote for my friend Justin @NelsonForTexas against an *indicted* and corrupt incumbent!
Justin is the real deal - super smart, devoted, hard working, progressive.
3/ Michigan, vote for @sbagen Sam Bagenstos for Supreme Court!
I can't imagine a better state supreme court justice. Brilliant scholar, rule-of-law defender, progressive perspective.
Michigan's Supreme Court has made huge decisions over the past decade. It needs Sam's wisdom.

Why the slight shift? Let me try to explain what we've observed move post-Labor Day. There are basically 3 large buckets of House races we're watching...
1) Vulnerable Rs in upscale, suburban, Clinton-won "Whole Foods" districts like #VA10 Comstock, #KS03 Yoder, #CO06 Coffman, #MN03 Paulsen, #CA45 Walters, #NJ07 Lance, etc. These Rs are mostly trailing & their numbers haven't gotten any better recently.
2) Competitive races in redder, working-class districts that Trump won by double digits in '16, such as #IL12 Bost, #MN08 OPEN, #NY22 Tenney, #WV03 OPEN, etc. Overall, things have slightly improved in "Trump zones" for Rs, w/ notable exceptions in districts like #KS02 & #ME02.

Virginia is where the post-Trump bounceback began last year, and we’re determined to elect more progressive leaders this year—including an all-women slate of congressional candidates. #VApol (1/7)
#VA02: Elaine Luria will prioritize Virginians’ safety by working to protect access to affordable healthcare and working to combat climate change. NXTGN.US/fj6
#VA05: Leslie Cockburn believes in #MedicareForAll. She will fight for living wages and free community college—and against pipelines. NXTGN.US/fj7

Let's flip #VA10! I'm co-hosting a last-minute fundraiser for @JenniferWexton. Virginia needs a progressive leader, and it's time for GOP @RepComstock to step down.

Right before midterms. Right when it counts. Put your money where your mouth is.

Here's why I, as an immigration lawyer and #VA10 resident, believe we've moved past Comstock. She has succumbed to the race-baiting GOP party line. She can't be seen as true Republican if she doesn't conflate the entire Latino community with MS-13.
Despite her persistent and curious claims that @JenniferWexton wants to let gang members into Virginia, she voted in favor of freeing ICE to detain and deport anyone, without prioritization for the dangerous ones.

That makes us all LESS safe.

Teachable moment: The Overton window has shifted so far to the right that even immigrants like David Ramadan consider speaking out on Comstock's deplorable immigration record "partisan hackery."

Far from being deceitful, my statement is a product of 15 years of experience.
Comstock succumbed to the race-baiting GOP party line. She can't be seen as true Republican if she doesn't conflate the entire Latino community with MS-13.
She introduced the Criminal Alien Gang Member Removal Act, blazing new trails in the law by making gang members deportable.
Despite her persistent and curious claims that @JenniferWexton wants to let gang members into Virginia, she voted in favor of freeing ICE to detain and deport anyone, without prioritization for the dangerous ones.

Partisan hackery, defined.

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:

"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."
