As Green Day once sang: “Do You Know Your Enemy?”

If not, we need to have a talk about the Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPac).

THEY ARE THE ENEMY of the 2018 Midterm Elections and they WILL cost us seats IF we let them.
The CLF is a right-wing SuperPAC spearheaded by Paul Ryan. It’s goal is to lie about and smear as many Democratic candidates as possible.

They have raised more than $100Million from billionaires looking to keep the GOP in power.…
Back in May, Paul Ryan personally solicited billionaire Sheldon Adelson for $30Million for the CLF. He made the pitch and then walked out of the room so that someone else could make the actual “ask”, in order to avoid campaign finance violations.…

Paul Ryan’s super PAC is under fire for weaponizing @SpanbergerVA07’s private personal records from her service in the CIA and law enforcement.

She’s not the only candidate that needs your help facing lies from that same super PAC.

Let’s take a look👀…
In Colorado, Paul Ryan’s super PAC came after @JasonCrowCO6.

REALITY CHECK: “Republicans know Jason Crow’s service with and for veterans is an asset, so they’re attacking it. If this is the best they’ve got, shame on them.”

In Maine, Paul Ryan’s super PAC came after @golden4congress.

His super PAC’s ad zooms in on Golden’s tattoo to “tie it to his politics” even though his tattoo pays tribute to his tours in Iraq and Afghanistan.

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:

GOP candidate says something racist? Say NO to racism by voting for @PaulDavisKS!

"While CNN has rated the race to replace Jenkins as leaning Republican, Democrats have lined up behind former Kansas House Minority Leader Paul Davis to flip the district."…

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

Tonight marks a milestone in the history of @SwingLeft and for me, personally.

Tonight, voters will choose the Democratic nominee for #NY19—just one of our 78 Swing Districts.

But for me, it's the district that started it all.

THREAD. (1/12)
I will spare you the PTSD of Election Night, 2016, and start the next day.
I dropped off my daughter at daycare and went to the coffee shop to work on my novel.

I couldn't write, of course. I sat there burning with the need to do something.

Because I've always been an elections nerd, I immediately thought about the House, how all the seats are up every cycle, and how there's always some kind of wave against the new President in midterms. (3/12)

1/ Thanks @JohnBrennan for your service & tireless support in the fight to bring justice to the victims of Lockerbie.I lost my brother that day. I was only 19 when I went to DC to fight for better airline safety regulations & helped pass the Iran/ Libya Sanctions Act. #ny19
2/ The Act forced Libya to turn over the terrorists. That experience is big part of why I'm running for Congress in #NY19 - & why nat security is a front & center issue for me. I want to work with our international allies & support our military service members at home & abroad...
3/ ...who are dedicated to the safety & security of the American people - so that other families never have to experience the loss that mine did. Again, thank you. And welcome to Twitter! #ny19 #resist

1/ The House passed the devastating Tax Cuts & Jobs Act today. Starve the Beast? More like starve the poor and vulnerable. Thread. #winwithflynn #brianflynn #ny19 #taxbill
2/ As if that wasn't bad enough, Republicans are already planning to pay for their $1.5 trillion tax bill by making cuts next year to vital safety net programs the most vulnerable in our district rely on such as Social Security, Medicare, welfare and food stamps.
3/ So who in the GOP is going to step up and go to bat for America’s most vulnerable? Who will put country over party? If you’re betting on @repjohnfaso think again.
