Connecticut's closest non-Gov race in 2018 was the State Attorney General election. State Rep William Tong defeated attorney Susan Hatfield by 6 points and produced an interesting map in the process. Hatfield did best in the east, while Tong did best in his home Fairfield County.
Both Tong and Hatfield might have interesting futures. Tong has been talked about as a potential future statewide candidate, while Hatfield is now the CT GOP Chairwoman.

*One of the closest, the SoS race was slightly closer, but this one was more interesting in my opinion.

A pair of Colorado Senators share a birthday today: Gary Hart and Michael Bennet! To celebrate, let's take a look at a few of their elections to the US Senate!
Let's start off in 1980 with Gary Hart. Despite Reagan winning the state by over 20 points, Gary Hart managed to hold on and win re-election against state Secretary of State Mary Buchanan.

Hart would attempt to run against Reagan in 84, but came short in the primaries.
30 years later, Michael Bennet barely hung on in his bid to keep the Senate seat he was appointed to in the Democratic column. Despite trailing in most polls near the end of the race, Bennet managed to win by about 1.5% against future CO-04 Congressman Ken Buck.

No map today, instead I wanted to write a little short thread about what I'm thankful for this year. Okay, let's go!
I'm thankful for all of y'all on here. Let's be real, the world has kinda been trash the past year and without y'all, I don't think I would have gotten through this year as well as I have.
Some of you make me mad and some of you make me happy, but what matters is that you're here. Since last year, I've gone from like 1,000 to over 3,000 followers. I could not do this without y'all and I'm eternally grateful for that.

Back at it with State Legislative Campaign Fundraising, we're finishing off Minnesota tonight with the State House! Let's get to it!

John Persell (DFL, Inc)- RAISED: $13,658 ON HAND: $20,295
Matt Bliss (R)- RAISED: $15,256 ON HAND: $19,023

@CNalysis Rating: Tilt DFL
This Bemidji-area district went to Trump by 12 and Walz by 1 and featured one of Minnesota's closest State House elections in 2018. Persell won by 8 votes in 2018 and it's shaping up to be another close one in 2020!

We're continuing our State Legislative finance series by looking at Michigan tonight! We've only got State House elections here this year, but we've got some exciting ones! Let's get to it!

Chris Slat (D)- RAISED: $14,063 ON HAND: $11,532
Joe Bellino (R, Inc)- RAISED: $9,112 ON HAND: $59,058

@CNalysis Rating: Likely R
This Monroe-area seat went to Trump by 18, but Gretchen Whitmer only lost it by 1 in 2018. Slat raising some good fundraising numbers should give some encouragement to Dems here, but this remains kind of a reach seat for them.
