#PSA. There are a lot of people claiming they are running for Congress in red districts or against a specfic elected member.

Buyer beware. Ask questions.

None of us know that's true. This isn't a typical cycle

Until Reapprtionment & Redistricting are complete it's unknown
Take GA & couple of people (iirc) running against Taylor-Greene

GA very easily may get another 1-2 seats so shrinking the district land masses and changing lines

Plus, she is talking of running for the Warnock Senate seat

What happens to the money raised?
It's the same in CA or CO, or as I explained in Ohio where we may lose 1-2 districts.

What happens to the money raised if the person claiming they're running against x candidate gets drawn into a democratic repped district?

Do they spend the money primarying that Dem?
It's true one doesn't technically need to live in the cng district they represent but unless you're already the rep, you don't get elected out of district.

What happens to the in-district Dem candidates? When this person out of district built a name & donor base on a lost race?
These are theoretical questions.

As I've explained, I ponder these questions for myself in deciding if I will run against jordan again.

Not knowing the lines, I think claiming I am and raising money off it feels wrong.
For me, I am spending my time and energy focused on getting fair maps so we have voters picking representatives, not the other way around

And in full disclosure, I will also be fundraising for a PAC that I established, but more on that soon

I am not trying to hide anything
These aren't theoretical questions

These are questions I asked myself in deciding if I'm running against jordan again

I don't know if we'll be in the same district. He lives 30 minutes or so away but we could be in different districts under the new redistricting rules
I am bringing this up to ensure that the money you're donating is spent best and directed to help us flip the most seats.

You can ask questions about what happens to your money when someone asks you to donate to their campaign
*not theoretical. I know I typed "not".. err.

I rarely want an edit button because of the drama can cause but damn it. I want it now

People seem really confused about this impeachment vs last one.

There is almost nothing similar which is why there is significant differences in the House Managers.

Comparing them is not accurate.

A Thread about trials vs impeachment
The biggest difference isn't Dems in control of Senate which it's massively help

It's the DOJ/FBI returned to non-partisan only interested in justice and the rules of law.

This is incredibly critical to how the Mangers present their impeachment

The reason is Ollie North
In 1987, during Iran-Contra hearings Dems were so desperate for his testimony they gave him immunity for his testimony.

DOJ tried him for his crimes related to Iran-Contra and he was convicted. A federal judge overturned his convicted based on the Congressional immunity deal

THREAD (Long):

Lara Trump mocking Joe Biden's stutter at a recent Women for Trump event was completely on brand. Sarah Huckabee Sanders pulled a similar slam on Twitter. Her father-in-law mocked a disabled reporter. These are simple a collection of the horrible people.
As I have mentioned before, I have a speech impediment (a lisp). These attacks are personal for me, as well as, a moral outrage.
For the most part my lisp is under control, only coming out when I am exhausted or when I try pronounce a few different words.
”Opioid(s)" is one word that trips me up often, for example. I have to stop and clearly think though my therapy training on how to pronounce it.

Growing up, saying"sh" sounds was especially hard for me. Brutal when your name is "Shannon." It became "Tannon" or 'Thannon."
