I think Sinema just made it harder for Arizona Dems to get rid of her

It's different if we could primary her and she wouldn't appear on the general election ballot but she will be on the general election ballot as an indpendent, along with the Democratic nominee and the Republican nominee. She will siphon votes from the Democratic nominee. She will make it easier for the Republican candidate to win. I'm not convinced at this moment that putting up a Democratic nominee is the better move over backing Sinema.

As we all know, sometimes Sinema is impossible. I'll bitch and complain all day long but willing to tolerate it as along we she was a number for us, and as long as she votes with us when it counts like on the COVID relief bill, the deficit reduction/climate change bill, and on judges.

From the couple of articles I've read here on DU and elsewhere, it seems that she will still caucus with us and maintain our 51-seat majority. I'm just "thinking out loud" here but I just feel like trying to vote her out will give the Republican candidate a much better chance of winning. Like TFG is splitting the GOP right now, Sinema could do the same for Arizona Dems in 2024.

WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS? Re Sinema

I COULDNT WAKE UP TO GOOD NEWS???? SINEMA IS LEAVING THE PARTY AND REGISTERING AS AN INDEPENDENT?

She couldn’t give us a week to celebrate our 51 seat majority?

She had to suck up all the fucking oxygen in the room from Senator Warnock’s runoff win?


FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK! 😤😡🤬🤬😡

Did she only do this because Warnock won his runoff?

Texas state court throws out lawsuit against doctor who violated abortion law

Fort Worth Star-Telegram


A Texas state court has thrown out a lawsuit filed against an abortion provider who intentionally violated a state law prohibiting abortions after about six weeks of pregnancy.

Dr. Alan Braid was sued under a law known as Senate Bill 8, which allows private citizens to bring lawsuits against anyone who “aids or abets” in a prohibited abortion. A state court ruled from the bench Thursday that plaintiffs do not have standing to sue if they have not been directly impacted by the abortion services provided, according to the Center for Reproductive Rights, which is representing Braid.

Thursday’s ruling sets an important precedent but does not overturn the law, said Nancy Northup, the group’s president and chief executive, in a statement.

“This is a significant win against S.B. 8’s bounty-hunting scheme because the court rejected the notion that Texas can allow a person with no connection to an abortion to sue,” Northup said.

2nd Circuit allows New York to keep enforcing new gun law

AP News


NEW YORK (AP) — A federal appeals court panel said New York can continue enforcing a new state law banning guns from “sensitive” places like parks and theaters while the judges consider a legal challenge.

The temporary stay from the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday puts on hold most of a ruling last month from U.S. District Judge Glenn Suddaby, who found constitutional issues with multiple portions of the law related to carrying firearms in public places and to licensing requirements.

New York adopted the new gun law this summer after a Supreme Court ruling invalidated the state's system for granting permits to carry handguns outside the home. The law expanded who could get a handgun license, added new licensing requirements and created a long list of places where firearms would be banned.

No more committee deadlocks. Smooth sailing in 2023 for Dale Ho, Nancy Abudu, Rachel Bloomekatz, Julie Rikelman, and more. Just a hugely consequential turn.

Here's an interesting tidbit:

@JacobRubashkin

Here's an interesting tidbit:

If CCM, Kelly, and Warnock all hold on, it will be the first time in history that every single incumbent senator running for another term won their primary and their general election.

In 1914, none lost a general, but two lost renomination.
