Fellow Du'ers...WE WON THE HOUSE...BFD

We had to over-perform in order to win a still gerrymandered house. We did it!!! Let us rejoice that Trump's dictatorship is over. We have a check. Also we won what nine governorships. Heller is gone, Walker is gone-Pete Sessions is gone! Lizzie Fletcher won in Texas also! The blue wall is up again in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin too. It was a good night for us.

1. K&R. We have a foothold. Now the Real Resistance begins.

One election isn't going to fix the authoritarian and nationalism crisis. It's going to take more than one election and it's going to take more than elections.

3. Absolutely. We dodged a bullet...Social Security, Medicare, the ACA and Medicaid will not be done

away with. There will be no more tax cuts...and we can stop legislation cold. Resist and resist!

6. It really was and with such close races, it could have gone the other way...we won in the burbs

usually red territory and with women...this may be a realignment of the burbs and women.

We knew all along that our prospects for winning the Senate were dim. I'm so happy we won the House!

11. I am too...and if you look back to the specials, when we won

Virginia, we didn't get the legislature even though we won with big numbers because of the gerrymander. We had to out-perform in order to win the house...without the gerrymander,we probably would have won 50 seats.

15. Yeppers! Early on it was bad news, re the Senate.

I started to worry, unfounded fortunately, we might not take the House. Then the flips started in earnest. Overall a very good night. 😃

13. They really were against us...this was red territory...and I was nervous especially with the close

house races...I hoped for the Senate but I knew it was unlikely. We won ...there is now a check on the president and his evil minions.

10. We went from zero power to the owning the mighty power of the House

 

We stripped total power from their greedy hands.
That's where we are this morning.
Jan 3rd can't come fast enough.

16. The house holds the purse strings...it is very powerful and the attempt to kill the ACA

will be a disaster for the GOP...so maybe we do work together to make that better...hope so. If not hang it around every GOP slime in 20 including Trump.

Walker is history!

Putin's favorite traitor congressman Rohrabacher is toast!

Democrats totally control the great state of New York!

18. Cheers we won last night...the glass is half full right?

Sure I am sad about Florida and Georgia...but we won governorships ahead of the census. Sherrod Brown won easily. Some great Democratic candidates won...it is an earthquake. Trump's shitting on us all is over.

22. A simple solution is to

Do less. Still waiting to enter my first dispensary. The only cannabis Ive ever done is the illegal variety. And, unfortunately, the pro cannabis Democrat in my state lost to the Republican. Thank you, turncoats!!! 👺😡
