.@TJCoxCongress has pulled ahead of incumbent Valadao in #CA21.

If the lead holds, that will bring the Dem gains in the house to 40 seats.

This is what a #BlueWave looks like, y'all.

But that's just the beginning. 1/
#tuesdaythoughts #tuesdaymotivation
2/ Of particular note, Democrats won the popular vote by over 9M, the largest margin in US history.

The closest runner-up was the election after Watergate.

History does, indeed, rhyme. #tuesdaythoughts #tuesdaymotivation
3/ In addition, Democrats netted 300 legislative seats and 7 governorships. Democrats now have full control in 14 states, which will make this year's redistricting efforts more equitable. #tuesdaythoughts #tuesdaymotivation cnn.com/2018/11/26/pol…
4/ In 2018, Republicans lost four trifectas and Democrats gained six. States that were previously a divided government and became a Democratic trifecta are CO, IL, ME, NM, NY and NV.

KS, MI, WI, and NH were previously Republican trifectas and are now divided governments.
5/ Little discussed are the effects that having a divided state government will have in red & swing states like KS, MI, and WI when it comes time to redistrict for the 2020 election.

Plus: MO and UT passed initiatives taking redistricting out of the hands of state legislatures.
6/ Newly elected Democratic Secretaries of State in AZ, MI, and CO are poised to have huge impacts on voting rights in those states.

Expanded voting rights in AZ and MI, in particular, can make a HUGE difference in the 2020 election. #tuesdaythoughts

7/ Dems also picked up 4 AG seats in CO, MI, NV and WI, giving us a majority 27 of the nation’s 51 attorney general offices going into 2020. Just about every legal challenge that has kept Trump in check was brought by one or more state AG office. wapo.st/2F96muP?tid=ss…
