Nevada’s Early Vote Numbers Have Hillary Clinton Supporters Thrilled

Huffington Post: If she takes Nevada, she could lose every other swing state and still win the presidency.

Democrats are turning out in large numbers in the battleground state of Nevada, building what may become a vital electoral firewall for the party’s presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, in the final days of the 2016 race.

As of Sunday morning, registered Democrats had established a 7-point lead over registered Republicans in the state’s early vote totals. That margin is just slightly below the lead Democrats held at the same point in 2012, when President Barack Obama ended up winning the state by 6.6 percent.

This is just so sad. Bad enough that this election is ripping the country apart...it's also tearing apart relationships.

WASHINGTON — The North Carolina couple won't even watch the news in the same room anymore. He is voting for Donald Trump to cancel out her vote for Hillary Clinton. The tension has brought their marriage to its lowest point, she said.

"I really, genuinely think the marriage is the worst it has ever been," said Tasha, who, like the others in a Charlotte, N.C., focus group last week, gave just her first name.

"It is a train wreck. I do not even want to hear it," she said. "He has to put headphones on to listen to his Fox News. It sends me over the edge."

Asked later to name one positive attribute about Clinton, Tasha's husband, Kyler, struggled.

"There might have been something before this campaign," he said. "But I hate her."



Dozens Of Former Federal Prosecutors Sign Open Letter Criticizing James Comey

They said they were “astonished and perplexed” by Comey’s decision to send a letter to Congress about Clinton-related emails.

A group of former federal prosecutors signed an open letter Sunday evening criticizing FBI Director James Comey for alerting Congress to new emails pertaining to Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton so close to Election Day.

The Clinton campaign drafted a version of the letter and sent it to the former federal prosecutors over the weekend. Among those who signed the letter ― which was posted to Clinton’s campaign website ― is former Attorney General Eric Holder.

“Many of us have worked with Director Comey; all of us respect him,” the letter says. “But his unprecedented decision to publicly comment on evidence in what may be an ongoing inquiry just eleven days before a presidential election leaves us both astonished and perplexed.”



make calls to swing state votes with Moveon.org

Hi fellow DU'ers -

Have any of done this? If so, I'd like to hear more about your experience. I'm in Oregon, have voted, but desperately want to do something to help in the swing states. Better to work with Moveon.org, or directly through the HRC campaign or does it even matter?


Does the POTUS have an obligation to weigh in on Comey-gate or would that be inappropriate?

From TPM Livewire: Report: Trump Camp Tells House GOPers 'No Waffling' On Support For Nominee

In a memo to House Republicans on Thursday, the Donald Trump campaign pressured lawmakers to openly express their support for the Republican nominee as Election Day fast approaches, the Washington Post reported.

"No waffling, no week [sic] knees," Scott Mason, the Trump campaign's director of congressional affairs, wrote in an email to House Republicans obtained by the Post.

"I know we are less than 11 days to the 2016 election. But it is imperative that we continue to drive Republican support for the top of the ticket," Mason wrote.

"That means we need your direct, strong support for the Trump/Pence ticket,” he continued. “Now is the time. No waffling, no week [sic] knees. Hillary Clinton has given us, and continues to give us — and the country — every reason on earth that she is not worthy of winning this election. We strongly urge you today to make a statement — take a stand — and step out for the Trump/Pence ticket.”
