Re: 2020 Congressional Elections


Oh.... Rachel Maddow just reported an upset.

In North Carolina, the Republican primary features a race to fill Mark Meadows' old seat (which he left to become Trump's umpteenth Chief of Staff).

Meadows had endorsed Lynda Bennett, so Trump endorsed Bennett, as well.

And Bennett has lost the primary.

To a 24-year-old!

(Madison Cawthorn will have a birthday before the end of the year, so that he will reach the minimum age to serve in the House.)

(NBC News) - McGrath beats Charles Booker in Kentucky Senate Democratic primary, NBC News projects

Retired Marine Lt. Col. Amy McGrath has won the state's U.S. Senate Democratic primary, NBC News projects, narrowly edging Kentucky state Rep. Charles Booker in a tougher-than-expected race to take on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in November. McGrath, who was backed by several establishment Democrats, including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., had initially had been a heavy favorite in the race and held an enormous fundraising edge over Booker, whose candidacy received the support of progressive lawmakers and groups.

I'm almost surprised Amy McGrath won the primary. Charles Booker was surging strongly the final couple of weeks.

I think she has a better chance of beating Mitch McConnell than Booker had, but that's not to say chances are good. Somehow Mitch manages to get reelected even though nobody in Kentucky admits to liking him.

I agree, Robbie. I hate to say it about my neighbor to the south, but it's true here, too: Any woman or person of color faces an uphill battle strictly on that basis.

I'm delighted to say that John Hickenlooper is now officially the Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate seat from Colorado and will run against GOP slime ball Cory Gardner (I'm with Trump 100%) in November.

Re: 2020 Congressional Elections


Dems need to pick up three seats (with a Biden win) to control the Senate. These are polls from various national organizations showing the status of Republican incumbents:

COLORADO: Hickenlooper + 11 over Gardner

ARIZONA: Kelly + 7 over McSally

MAINE: Gideon + 4 over Collins

MONTANA: Bullock + 4 over Daines

NORTH CAROLINA: Cunningham + 3 over Tillis

IOWA: Greenfield + 2 over Ernst

The last two are within the margin of error.

In Alabama, Jones is currently running -3, so we'll probably need a fourth pickup. But if we can get the African-American vote to show up in Alabama, he might just be able to win it.

In South Carolina, Harrison raised $13.4 MILLION against Lindsay Graham JUST in the 2nd quarter!
