The stench of defeat?

GOP strategists already penciling in Reps. Coffman (#CO06) and Paulsen (#MN03) as probable lost causes, joining Comstock (#VA10) and Blum (#IA01) in the write-off column: talkingpointsmemo.com/dc/dem-confide…
Senate polling chatter from the same TPM piece:

▪️Nelson has rebounded to a small lead in FL (Gillum's nomination is seen as positive for his chances)
▪️Tester and Manchin hold "comfortable leads"
▪️Donnelly is clinging to a "narrow lead"
▪️Bredesen is "tied or slightly leading"
▪️McCaskill is in a "dogfight" rather than trailing
▪️Heller will probably lose
▪️AZ is essentially tied
▪️Republicans think they'll beat Heitkamp
▪️GOP is mildly concerned about TX
▪️Dems are a "bit concerned" about NJ

What do an FBI arrest, a special prosecutor, insider trading, tax breaks spent on yachts, and not disclosing shady businesses all have in common?

It all stinks of Republican corruption.

Let's take a look 👀
Now that #NY27 GOP Rep. Chris Collins was arrested and indicted on insider trading, his seat in Congress is in play!

It’s not just Chris Collins. The scandal runs through Texas ...

Q2 Fundraising is over, and Democrats did a great job!

But I was chatting with @ybbkaren and an interesting question came up:

With SO MANY great candidates, how do we decide who needs donations the most? Many are worthy, but our personal funds are not unlimited.
So I came up with an idea for my own list of Dems who need $$$ based upon the following criteria:

*They have won their primary
*They are trying to flip “swing” GOP-held seats (per @CookPolitical ratings)
*They are behind their GOP opponents in “Cash on Hand” (per @OpenSecretsDC)
That’s not to say that other Democrats in swing districts are not worthy. They are. But the following, from a strategic $$$ perspective, might be the best place to donate *for now*.

This is the list of those House candidates, and their donation links, based on that criteria:

What do we have the most control over? Voting, helping others register to vote, getting out the vote, and flipping as many seats as possible in the #Midterms2018

Here are 27 seats Democrats can pick up, followed by candidates. Direct some energy to them. 1/7

It's Super Tuesday, & my cheat sheet has ballooned to include 33 important elections: docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d…

So here's a quick thread highlighting some (lower-profile) races you should absolutely be paying attention to today!
You know the big ones:
—Will Dems be shut-out in any of the 3 crowded Orange Co districts (#CA39, #CA48, #CA49)?
—Will the GOP be shut out in one/both of California's Senate & Gov race?
What else?
In New Mexico, state Rep. Debbie Rodella is facing a primary challenger in the Democratic primary (Susan Herrera). Rodella has killed progressive legislation, such as automatic voting registration. See: dailykos.com/stories/2018/4…
