What?? A Republican conceded that they lost without demanding a recount? Wow. That's refreshing...
According to @CookPolitical, the House tally is now:

Democrats: 222
Republicans: 209

...with 4 uncalled races...and check out how close they are: Image
But wait: #NY22 is now down to just a *75* vote difference!

And in #IA02, it's down to just a *47* vote difference...and yes, a recount makes perfect sense under those circumstances:
I haven't found any updates on #CA21, but #CA25 is gonna be *really* tough for Christy Smith to pull off:
So, the Dems will end up with between 222 - 226
The GOP will end up with between 209 - 213

That gives Speaker Pelosi a 5 - 9 seat margin...minus Cedric Richmond & any other Dems plucked for Biden appointments. 👀

📣 MICHIGAN: Updated/Corrected: Over 156,000 Michiganders have gained Medicaid coverage in the #COVID19 era thanks to #ACA expansion: acasignups.net/20/11/18/michi…
Here's how "Healthy Michigan" (#ACA expansion) enrollment has grown since it was launched in April 2014. It ramped up & hovered between 650K - 700K until February 2020...after which enrollment has taken off again.
That's a 23% increase since February. If the #ACA is struck down by the Trump/GOP lawsuit, *830,000 Michiganders* would be screwed.

That's one of MANY reasons why the Georgia Senate runoffs aren't just about Georgians. Donate to #FlipBothGASeats today: secure.actblue.com/donate/garunof…

On the one hand, Medicaid expansion under the #ACA is up to the Governor & state legislature (which is why Georgia hasn't done so yet).

HOWEVER, if @ReverendWarnock & Jon @Ossoff are elected, the Senate could pass #HR584: 1/

#HR584, introduced by @RepTerriSewell & @RepVeasey last year, is very simple but would have a huge impact. Right now, if Georgia decided to expand Medicaid under the #ACA, they would have to pay 10% of the cost out of the gate. 2/

In Georgia, expanding Medicaid via the #ACA would provide healthcare coverage to up to 474,000 Georgians. Assuming $6,000/yr apiece total, Georgia would have to contribute $280 million/year.

Under #HR584, Georgia wouldn't pay anything for the first 3 years. 3/

That's Monica Palmer on the left.
She apparently only wants white people's votes counted.
Oh yeah...this photo comes from a story last week about an ethics complaint being brought against her for having a conflict of interest.

Population of Detroit: ~79% black (~531K / ~673K total)

Rest of Wayne County: ~15% black (~164K / ~1.08M total)

📣 OK, I delayed doing this long enough; as promised, I've finally started running my full analysis of the ~$5.9 million* I raised for Democratic candidates throughout the 2019-2020 Election Cycle.

*(still raising $ for the GA Senate runoffs)

First up: The U.S. Senate:
The grey rows are Dem Senate candidates who either dropped out or lost in the primary. A total of $36,824.95 was donated to these candidates. I debated how to categorize Adrian Perkins/Antoine Pierce since neither one was technically the Democratic nominee--there WAS none in LA.
The orange rows are for Undecided (Ossoff / Warnock / 3rd Party Orgs for the Georgia Senate Runoffs). I've raised a total of $628,784.57 for these two races combined so far; I could see hitting perhaps $700K total by Jan. 5th.

Speaking of which...

#FunFact: I've been an expert witness in 2 civil cases. The second time, I was originally supposed to testify the 1st day fo the trial but kept being rescheduled; I finally testified on the 5th day...but I had to sit in the courtroom for ~8 hours each day...at $150/hour.
The case involved both sides being clueless in different ways. A web developer working as a "volunteer deputy" at the Macomb County Sheriff's Dept. developed & maintained an elaborate website for them for free for 3 yrs...then demanded to be paid for his work, including back pay.
The plaintiff (the web developer) claimed that he was owed $300,000. He & his expert witnesses went on & on about how incredibly impressive/sophisticated the code was; all the nifty database tools he had implemented; etc etc.
