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’m seeing a lot of reports about the CA primary results as inevitable, or just a result of a lot of $$ spent.

They’re missing the bigger story.

THREAD (1/12) Everyone talks about how divided Dems are. But we created a coalition of local @IndivisibleTeam groups, @RegistrBlue, @Civic_Sundays, @RealCodeBlue etc to work with our chapters like @Ca25Left, @SwingLeftSGV, @SwingLeftSoCo, @SwingLeftSF, @SouthBaySL and @SwingLeftCoCoCo. (2/12)
