538 clip: Confidence Interval: Democrats Could Win 60 Seats In The Senate

https://fivethirtyeight.com/videos/confidence-interval-democrats-could-win-60-seats-in-the-senate/

A Dem-controlled filibuster-proof Senate - anyone think that's possible?
I'd be happy with us just taking back control of the Senate but one could dream.

BREAKING: In the Middle of a Pandemic, Texas Democrats Break the Record for Highest Turnout in Texas

"Austin, TX — Yesterday, in the middle of a pandemic, Texas Democrats broke the record for highest turnout in a runoff election in Texas Democratic history with a staggering 955,735 number of votes cast with 100% of the precincts reporting.

This breaks the Texas Democratic runoff record of 1994’s 746,641 runoff voters and is more than double the runoff turnout for the 2018 Democratic gubernatorial runoff, which featured 432,180 voters.

Texas Democrats are ready to win. Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement:
“In the middle of a pandemic, Texas Democrats showed we are ready to win with nearly a million Texans doing whatever it takes to have their voice heard. We broke the Texas Democratic record for turnout in a runoff election, more than doubling our 2018 runoff turnout.

“Republicans like Greg Abbott, Ken Paxton, and the Texas Republican Supreme Court did everything in their power to stop Texans from voting. It didn’t work. Texans will not be deterred. We will continue our fight to expand access to the ballot box and protect every Texan’s right to vote, but this election showed that Texas Democrats are fired up and are ready for change.

“Texas is the biggest battleground state in the country. There is unprecedented energy across our great state, and Texas Democrats are putting in the hard work to turn Texas blue in November. This is our moment.”

Folks, TX is now a SWING STATE & VERY MUCH A BATTLEGROUND TO FIGHT FOR. If Joe can win in TX he wins the presidency. I'm posting here as we are 3 months from November and TX is very much in play in national politics.

The crooked GOP-majority city council knows there will be huge Dems turnout and have voted to postpone the city's local election to next May. Damn bastards can't win without cheating.

Texas election forecaster predicts Texas House will flip in 2020

Posting this here since we're in a general election year and TX is consequential.

Mike Hailey, a longtime Texas politics reporter, is forecasting a blowout year for Democrats in the Texas House. Hailey predicts Democrats will capture an additional 15 seats in 2020, according to his Crystal Ball forecast on Capitol Inside. In 2018, Hailey predicted Democrats would nab 11 Texas House seats from Republicans — just one seat shy of the actual result on Election Day.
This year, Democrats are only nine seats away from taking control of the chamber for the first time since 2002.

“Republicans in Texas legislative and congressional districts where Trump received less than 60 percent of the vote in 2016 could be doomed as a consequence of guilt by association exclusively on a ticket with a self-destructing president at the top,” Hailey wrote.
