LA Gov race.
The guy who won - Edwards - is a pro- 2AM, anti-abortion centrist who identifies as a Democrat.
He won. Just. Good for him.
Alas he's an outlier in the Dems these days. And if he's lying, he'll be a 1 term wonder.
Hey everyone, try to avoid the partisan crap. Trump is important because he shattered the GOP vs Dem establishment.
Truth is if he is honest, Edwards isn't bad for the USA. If this is what the Dems offer, they may do well.
@REX Not sure what you mean by partisan crap?
Keep in mind that neither the Dems or the GOP are trustworthy groups.
Just because Trump used the GOP machine to win the Presidency, doesn't mean we support the GOP. Far from it.
We support Trump and him alone. GOP vs Dem partisan bickering means nothing.
Sure it was an Obama/Clinton op, but the GOP in cahoots ALSO tried to nix Trump in 2016.
Far from it, my friend.
Without GOP control in Congress, Trump is no more than a Christmas decoration on a house in Pennsylvania Ave.
He is the leader of the GOP and he needs the GOP to get reelected and (more importantly) to govern.
An attack on the GOP is an attack on Trump.
There is no way around that.
I certainly do not want to live through another 4 years of torment and the stalling of Trump's efforts. I've had quite enough. I can only imagine where our country could go if Trump's policy decisions are actually enacted without stonewalling from Dims every step of the way. We have to take back the House and not just a majority of it, a super majority.
It never works.
It did not in 06, definitely not in 08.
But go ahead. Go on living without an inkling of how our system works.
Keep on carping about "national elections" (or nationalized, or nationaljerked)...and count your loses.
The folks in, say, ME 2nd or NY 16th will continue to not give a fuck about your argument.
In the US, elections are ALWAYS local.
Alarming to see so many seats open in 2020.
Incumbents retiring from the House. This isn't going to be a slam dunk in getting the House back. We've got hard work ahead to insure that we gain and not lose one single seat.
