2. By taking the FL State Senate back after *24* years.
If you know of ANYONE in Florida, or have ANY Floridian followers, please share!
The Florida State Senate is made up of 40 seats.
22 seats are currently held by Republicans, 16 are held by Democrats, and 2 are vacant.
Democrats need a net gain of +5 seats in order to take the chamber.

🚨STATE-BY-STATE VOTER REGISTRATION MEGA-THREAD PART 1🚨
The Primaries are over!
It’s now full-steam ahead to the Midterms.
But before we get there we have to register NEW voters along the way, and deadlines are approaching fast.
Find your state(s) of interest and RT!
Every state has different rules, conditions, and dates…which can get confusing.
It also means that in order to create a thorough voter registration thread, there can only be 1 tweet per state.
There will also (hopefully) be a 1-page unrolled version of this thread at the end.

🚨“CONGRESSIONAL LEADERSHIP FUND” THREAD🚨
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.
I usually don’t take sides in primaries, but when it comes to the "Democrats" of the Independent Democratic Conference (IDC) in the New York State Senate, I have no choice.
PLEASE WATCH this explainer on the IDC narrated by Edie Falco:
There are 9 real Democrats challenging 9 fake “Democrats” this year in the New York State Primary on THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 13TH.
These real Democrats MUST win their primaries if NY is to have a true-blue Progressive future.
PLEASE spread the word on these @NoIDCNY candidates!

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)
