I found a church in Cleveland-diverse. The Pastor says they lock the doors during service for

security reasons...what a world we live in. I can't imagine how any person can accept that as 'normal' It is time to band together and enact reasonable gun control (as soon as we have the Senate and Presidency) I find the status quo unacceptable.

I will join this church. It is a very loving church. They do many community based good works....just what I wanted.But who could ever imagine that going to church would become an act of courage under the monster that is Trump and his evil minions.

Arizona's knock-down, all-out Senate race is heading into overtime, as a neck-and-neck contest between two congresswomen collides with Arizona's sometimes glacial vote-counting procedures.

Republican Martha McSally and Democrat Kyrsten Sinema were separated by a small fraction of the votes tabulated as of early Wednesday, with hundreds of thousands of uncounted ballots still outstanding.

Though the vast majority of Arizona voters cast their ballots early by mail, those who receive early ballots but then drop them off in person at polling stations on or close to Election Day can jam up the system.

That's because the state's most populous county, Maricopa, can take days to count those ballots while they simultaneously tabulate Election Day votes.

The so-called "late earlies" may not be counted until Thursday in the county, where about 60 percent of Arizona's voters live. Arizona counties with far fewer voters may also face long delays processing those ballots.

We may yet win Arizona.

Victory! Cuyahoga County Council Passes LGBTQ-Inclusive Non-Discrimination Ordinance (Cleveland)

This is huge. My gay daughter can now teach here in Ohio. So while we may not have won the governorship, we did win on some important issues. This also offers protection to Trans-gender individuals as well.

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.

Cook shifts 8 House races toward Dems /blue wave coming!!!!

Cook Political Report on Tuesday shifted eight House races toward Democrats and two in favor of Republicans with 14 days to go before the midterm elections.

The nonpartisan election forecaster projected Democrats will have an edge in key swing districts following the party's massive fundraising haul in the third quarter of this year.

Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska), who is facing off against independent candidate Alyse Galvin, moved from “likely Republican” to “lean Republican” after a recent poll showed the challenger within 2 points of the incumbent.

Florida's 6th, 15th and 27th congressional districts — all are open seats — shifted toward Democrats, moving from "likely Republican" to "lean Republican," "lean Republican" to "toss-up" and "toss-up" to "lean Democrat," respectively.

Arizona's 8th Congressional District, represented by Rep. Debbie Lesko (R), changed from "solid Republican" to "likely Republican." Lesko, who won the special election to replace former Rep. Trent Franks (R) earlier this year, is looking at a rematch with Hiral Tipirneni (D), who came up short in the special election.

Tipirneni more than doubled Lesko's fundraising in the third quarter.
