Here's the deal: We have to #FlipItBlue in November. We have to elect @DaveMinCA. Here's why. In #CA45 (Orange County, California), we have a fighting chance to knock out Rep. Mimi Walters, a do-nothing Republican Trump follower, & replace her with an amazing Democrat. THREAD 1/
The top Democratic candidates for #CA45 are @DaveMinCA and @KatiePorterOC. Just by being Democrats with a conscience, they are both infinitely better than Mimi Walters. But the best #CA45 Democratic candidate, by far, is @DaveMinCA. 2/
has amazing people skills, real plans for all the important issues, & broad support from grassroots Democratic organizations on the ground in Orange County. Dave easily won more votes than all the other candidates combined in the local straw polls among local Dems. 3/
won the California Democratic endorsement fair and square, having more delegates than the other candidates combined. He is endorsed by 10 California Congressional Democrats, and has huge support from local Democratic elected officials. 4/
Katie's support is narrow & distant. Don't get me wrong, I love @KamalaHarris, & @SenWarren. But their support for Katie is because she's a personal connection, not because Katie will be great in Congress. And a bulk of Katie Porter's money is coming from outside California. 5/
As a woman, it's more important to me to elect someone who will be able to get sh*t done. Male or female, I need to vote for the best person. Someone who can build consensus, rebuild bipartisanship, and yes, compromise when necessary to pass big legislation. That's @DaveMinCA 6/
is the only candidate willing to admit that healthcare, gun control, etc. will need consensus building, compromise & bipartisanship to become law. Dave is focused on working w/others to craft the best legislation possible, that will have votes needed to become law. 7/
Other candidates for the #CA45 vow to fight, fight, fight. Do we want to send a fighter to Congress? Or do we want to send @DaveMinCA who understands that reaching across the aisle to rebuild bipartisanship & to build consensus is the only way important legislation can pass? 8/
is not a one-trick pony like the other candidates. He has well-thought-out policies on all issues he would be working on in Congress: taxes, guns, ERA, science, immigration, etc. I have asked Dave about many issues & he is well-versed & well-prepared in all of them. 9/
After the November 2017 election, I listened to @SenHarris giver her amazing speech, and it helped me remember that all hope was not lost. @DaveMinCA inspires me the way Senator Harris does. 10/
In order to defeat Mimi Walters in the #CA45, we will need to appeal to moderates, independents, and anti-Trump GOP voters. @DaveMinCA will have the broadest appeal to the greatest number of potential voters. Please join me in voting for Dave so we can #FlipItBlue. 11/11 End
