2/"The Washington Post calls the Nevada Senate race Democrats’ “best pickup opportunity” in 2018, and POLITICO says we have “almost no shot” at taking back the Senate without it. But with a recent poll showing this race is a dead heat, the GOP is going ALL IN to protect this seat
3/"Mitch McConnell-linked groups are dumping MILLIONS into Nevada, and Donald Trump is actively campaigning for our extremist GOP opponent. That’s why a generous group of donors has offered to DOUBLE every dollar to flip this seat blue and take back the Senate for Democrats.

1/ " In a DEMOCRATIC society, majority rule must be coupled with guarantees of individual human rights that, in turn, serve to protect the rights of minorities--whether ethnic, religious, or political, or simply the losers in the debate over a piece of controversial legislation.
2/ "The rights of minorities do not depend upon the goodwill of the majority and cannot be eliminated by majority vote. The rights of minorities are protected because democratic laws and institutions protect the rights of all citizens."

Trump says Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski ‘will never recover’ for voting no on Kavanaugh…

I called this.
More of these #NeverTrump 'allies' will defect to Trump.
Rick Wilson, Molly Mckew, Liz Mair, Louise Mensch, Erick Erickson, Tom Nichols are not liberal allies. They are working to keep GOP in power & therefore Trump. They share same ideological goals. #VoteBlue
For all you people that keep posting @ me that "the enemy of my enemy is my friend." This is why I say No. #NeverTrump republicans are extreme conservatives with extreme goals. They believe Trump is an "anti abortion liberal masquerading as a conservative." He's proved them wrong
#NeverTrump republicans like Rick Wilson believe that Rand Paul is a "strong voice for limited gov't & criminal justice reform." Rand Paul is against the Civil Rights act of 1964 barring discrimination. This is what Rick thinks gives him a strong voice for justice reform. #Bigots

Sexual assault is about power as all thinking peoples know.

Kavanaugh has power.

Dr. Ford does not.

Here you see the primary problem in our system.

A power structure that is abhorrently skewed to the already powerful.

Stay with me here, this one's a doozy.
I want you to think of a case about five years ago. In Florida a kid got drunk, slaughtered some folks on the side of the road and got slap on the wrist.

He claimed "afluenza," sayin' he was too RICH to understand what he'd done.

And it WORKED.

He had rich parents, who on the state level had plenty of political influence. They had some real power. His parents hired expensive attorneys and experts, spent a bunch of money, and I assume favors, and he got off.

🔥Most effective line of attack Dems have against GOP candidates for governor/House/Senate in the 20 states below?🔥

...they're all part of a lawsuit that allows insurance companies to STOP covering constituents w/preexisting medical conditions.

To them, GOP says "DIE mad."
States SPECIFICALLY ASKED Judge Reed O’Connor to strike down parts of the law that prohibit health insurance companies from refusing to cover people w/ pre-existing health conditions.

GOP voters must be made to understand that their leaders (including GOP candidates) are so determined to dismantle Obamacare they are perfectly willing to WATCH THEIR VOTERS DIE and/or lose every single penny the voters worked so hard for.

Sickened tonight, listening to the stories of the many people living in this state, who refuse to evacuate areas threatened by Hurricane Florence; not because they don't believe there is a danger or because they aren't terrified—
—but because they fear entering a public shelter makes them vulnerable to ICE.

This is where we are now: people would rather face the fury of a natural disaster than the cruelty of our Government, and I don't blame them.
The transfer of ten million dollars from FEMA to ICE, crystalizes this Administration's commitment to cause trauma, not help people in it—and it's a flat-out human rights disgrace.

Democrats need 2 seats to flip the senate

They need 1 of the following scenarios to come true:

•Democrats need to win Republican held seats in Arizona & Nevada

•They need to hold on to all 26 of their currently held seats, including Indiana & Missouri…
If Democrats lose 1 of their seats, they need to take Arizona, Nevada & Tennessee.

Democrats could sub in Texas for 1 of these 3 seats or carry all 4 & afford to lose 2 of their seats.

They can't afford to lose in West Virginia, where tRump won by more than 40 points in 2016.
Manchin has retained high single digit polling lead in Mountaineer St
It isn't difficult seeing his lead falling given tRump is well liked there

Good news for Dems is: results across these races are correlated
Winning 1 of these tight races means they're likely to win most of em
