This 1 week delay is only for show! This is to limit the poor optics for the Reps going into Nov 6.

I hope I’m wrong and something comes of this.

Even if BK is confirmed, it's not all doom.

For all the talk about Kennedy being a moderate swing vote, i think he was a reliable right wing vote. While he voted with the left a few times, he voted with the right the majority. This is not a huge swing to the right.

Now, Clarence Thomas is 70. It’s possible he’ll be replaced by the next president. We must win in 2020. Samuel Alito is not far behind at age 68. There’s no guarantee he lasts much longer either.

RBG is an outlier with great genes. We must either win the Senate in 40’days and the WH in 2020, or hope she survives until 2021 and we win in 2020. Either way 2020 is our LAST CHANCE TO have any hope to shift the court.

We must win the Senate to block any nominations to the federal courts.

We just have to! We’ve got to hold the purple/red states. Then we have to pick up some combo of TN, TX, AZ, and NV. Let’s do this!

We need a national effort to get to Murkowski, Collins, Sasse

and others.

We need to pressure these senators like never before.

A national strike? Phone calls to their offices from across the nation?

BK’s refusal to support an FBI investigation is a glaring omission. He’s afraid of what Mark Judge will say! These GOP senators must hear from America!

I called Sen. Rubio's office yesterday about Kavanaugh. I'm a dad of a son and daughter.

I don’t want my daughter to spend the next 40 years of her life living in a country where a SCOTUS Justice is a sexual predator. And I want my son to grow up in a country where men respect women and don’t treat them like sexual objects.

Come on, men! We need to step up and support our sisters, moms, and daughters! Make the call, it’s not hard!

Gillum continues to lead DeSantis! Spread the word!

Talk to everyone you know, especially millennials!! They need to show up to vote. I spoke to a 26 year old female Gillum supporter today and urged her to talk to her friends and GOTV! We can do this. We can flip Florida but we need the Obama coalition of African-Americans, Hispanics, white progressives, and other good people to vote!!! Heck, talk to moderate Republicans, but our biggest target should be disaffected people who don’t regularly vote in midterm elections. Less than 6 weeks!!

DeSantis just hired a new campaign manager today. He is trying to right the ship. Hoping he doesn’t is NOT a strategy. We must support Gillum on social media, talks with our family and friends, and with any money we can donate.

Florida ranks as one of the worst states for teachers.

The low pay and micromanagement by administrators and bureaucrats is out of control.

Please GOTV for Gillum/King if we want any hope for change.

We have a statewide shortage of 4,000 teachers. I suggest if you’re a college student studying to teach, CHANGE YOUR MAJOR NOW!

I can not recommend teaching as a career option in FL!

No wonder there's a teacher shortage in FL

Welcome to Rick Scott’s FL.

We have to get Gillum in office! Meantime, don’t even think about teaching in this state!
