Congress is almost ancillary this fall, in my opinion.

With Doug mastriano being nominated for PA governor, it brings into focus for me how important holding those 3 governor's mansions are in PA, WI, MI that we won in. 2018. I don't believe it's hyperventilating to say that reelecting Whitmer and evers, and electing shapiro, are pretty important for the health of our democracy heading into 2024.

Why is Roger Wicker still a committee chair?

Majority? Bueller?

I'm struck, today, by how much we've missed a national focus on the arts.

Just complete omission of any focus on art, music, poetry by the prior gang of miscreants. It'll be great to reclaim some of our traditonal focus in matters of the arts and humanities.

The poetry of Ms. Gorman

was amazing, pitch-perfect, and almost surreal to watch given what we saw in this same setting 2 weeks ago.

Last round of donations in.

Biden/Harris, MJ Hegar, Theresa Greenfield, Al Gross and Kathleen Williams. Pretty amazing that folks like Steve Bullock, Jaime Harrison, John Hickenlooper, Mark Kelly don't even need money at this stage. What our party has grown into, with ActBlue, is truly amazing and bodes well for the future.

A question regarding early voting:

We know that Democrats are casting their votes early, and we know that Trump voters are going to mainly vote on election day, per polling. Do we know how independents are planning to vote/are they voting now? The point of the question is this: Is Joe banking mainly dem votes, which in and of itself is not predictive of the final result, or is he banking independents, those he's persuaded to peel off Trump, now as well? If people are voting in a manner that's reflective of current polls, the pool of people that could even be affected by a late swing back to Trump (vaccine, bad debate for Joe, etc) is growing smaller each day. Every day that Joe holds high-single-digit leads in the potential tipping point states, and a 10 point national lead, makes a Trump comeback less likely. Does anybody know if there's going to be a way to know who these voters are that are voting now? Reliable dems only or centrist persuadables as well?

It's funny, re: pence.

There's still enough paternalism, enough credence to pence's dominionist, rich-guy-enriching brand of republican politics engrained in some trump-disavowing pundits that they could convince viewers this was a draw (Michael Steele, Mike Murphy being 2). Then cnn polls kamala winning decisively. Turns out voters not only overwhelmingly reject trump but pences special brand of bullshit as well. Kamala was on point, on brand, and there for it tonight with regard to why America needs her and Joe.

Biden may have run a fairly strong second tonight.

He needs to strongly make the point in the next debate that he still has the time and the ability to unite the moderate lane and beat Bernie. Not much room left for Amy, Pete or Elizabeth now. Super Tuesday may be too late.
