We won the SC legislature (well, kinda)

Bad news: Rs still have roughly a 2:1 majority in the State House.

Depressing News: 2/3 of the races were not even contested, about as many Dems and Rs, which shows how completely the state is gerrymandered.

GOOD NEWS: We flipped 2 House seats and they flipped one, for a net gain for the Democrats. State Senate didn't run this year except for one special election (an R 20+ year incumbent had to resign to go to prison) and we flipped it.

side note: 2 of the 3 seats that flipped were in Congressional District 1, where Joe Cunningham won a surprising victory to take Mark Sanford's old seat where Trump had helped a horrible Tea Party woman to win the nomination in the primary. This almost certainly is a result of all the new and energized voters that came out to flip the US House seat.

1. I am excited that the tide has turned

If only a small amount, it's progress. We need to go after Graham next.
He needs to become a a former senator.

2. He's back in favor with the S.C. GOP now

Since he is sucking up to Trump.
I imagine his email server has a filter to block my messages, but I sent him one today saying “Last year you said there would be ‘hell to pay’ if Trump fired Mueller. When will we see this well-deserved hell?”

I’ll do everything I can to beat Little Lindsey in 2020 but I’m not optimistic on this one.
