Simply put, we must win the WH in 2020. I don't think

we can take the Senate in 2020. At least the odds aren’t great. Yes, 22 Republicans are up for re-election. But they are almost all in red states. Doug Jones is very vulnerable so that’s quite likely a loss. If we want a say in SCOTUS nominations we will have to defeat Trump.

Should Democrats in the House revive the old immigration bills from

the Bush administration? If I recall correctly they had bipartisan support. I believe they called for border security, provisions for undocumented people to remain legally, etc. of course, there was no wall.

I personally think we should. If it passes, it takes immigration off the table. If it dies in the Senate or is vetoed it is proof the KGOP doesn’t want to solve the problem.

Moving forward, Amendment 4 passes and restores voting rights to 1.5M Floridians

This is essentially a reform of the criminal justice system and will benefit African Americans. We need to register them and get them to vote in 2020.

Tonight isn’t going to end well for us but the future is still bright.
