Still nothing. Ugh.

Wild that this is the same place trump won by 20. Hehehe

I saw the video of Saccone telling people that the left has hatred for God. Whatta POS. Is there a Republican that doesn't lie his ass off? Jesus.
No. And there aren't any Dems who don't either.

Even though he's not in my state I very much appreciated him concentrating on his district rather than accepting invitations to appear on some of the national political programs. I can't say I followed him closely but I am aware of his background and he appears to be everything one would want in someone who represents them.

Doug Jones was a way better candidate than Roy Moore. And, Conor Lamb is a way better candidate than Saccone.

While the Dems don't have a clear consolidated message or standard-bearer, they have a lot of enthusiasm and qualified/appealing potential candidates ready to jump in the ring.

Neither Jones nor Lamb is someone who can be counted on to vote with the majority of Dems on every policy (Jones has already proven that).

They both focused on their campaigns and how they'd represent their constituents' best interests, not on smears against their competitors or anti-Trump platforms. Good on them.

I hear ya! I don't want to see any candidate who is running using the majorities dislike of trump as a way to get ahead. They need to rise above it because the dislike isn't enough. They need a message and anti-trump is not it.

About a year ago, Democrat Beto O'Rourke announced that he would challenge Ted Cruz this November for the Texas senate seat.

O'Rourke ^, who has been a House Representative since 2013, didn't get a lot of coverage back then. But as the midterms get closer, I'm seeing him in the news a lot more.

He's more liberal that Conor Lamb, from what I can see. But, he truly believes he has a chance in this divisive climate......even though El Paso last elected a Democrat to Senate back in 1988, Cruz won his seat by 16 points back in 2012, and Trump won the presidential vote there by 9 points in 2016.

Like Lamb, O'Rourke quickly distanced himself from the Republican notion that all Democrats are puppets to Nancy Pelosi. She sure has a lot of power over the minds of the GOP.

(continued)

^ This is hilarious. It's one of Ted Cruz's early campaign ads.....a country song set to Alabama's "If You're Gonna Play in Texas" with different words.

"If you're gonna run in Texas, you can't be a liberal man" is the opening line. It also talks about how O'Rourke would take all Texans' guns and open all the borders.

The lyrics also accuse O'Rourke of changing his first name in order to appeal to Hispanic voters, despite the fact that Cruz's own given first name is Rafael. (Beto's given name is Robert.)

After Cruz's ad was released, O'Rourke posted this photo to show that he's been called Beto since he was toddler.

Anyway, O'Rourke's campaign is out-raising Cruz's. It would really be something if Cruz lost his seat.

Ted is such a goober. I liked him for about 5 minutes before the election and then he rolled over like a dog.

So...yesterday the Democrats won a WI Supreme Court seat by a very wide margin and Governor Scott Walker tweeted - Tonight’s results show we are at risk of a #BlueWave in WI. The Far Left is driven by anger & hatred -- we must counter it with optimism & organization. Let’s share our positive story with voters & win in November.

hah

This is spineless, no balls, Paul Ryan's state too. Ahahahaha!

Adding a judge to the 9th circuit will be fun to watch.

Walker is right about signs of a Dem Blue Wave, the rest of his bullshit is based on realistic fear.

^ Dallet didn't only beat her Republican competitor, she walloped him by 12 points in what was projected to be a close race. Good.

I think the major victory is due to the fact that moderates, independents and dems all strongly feel the need for balance in the judiciary. President Trump has pushed through so very many unqualified and very conservative judges who have long-term or lifetime appointments.

Dallet said she believes the NRA's hard push for her opponent immediately after the Parkland shooting turned voters off and helped her to get elected.

Anyway, Dallet is the first progressive non-incumbent judge to win a state Supreme Court seat in WI in 23 years. It's a ten year gig.
