Heard McCrory had a strong ad calling Trumps chosen candidate a Putin stooge. Do dems have a formidable candidate? That Cal guy really fucked up in 2020

Any other races you are following?

Cheri Beasley is all but guaranteed the Dem spot, especially since Jeff Jackson bowed out

Bump for primary results.
Tell me about the races you are following (including out of state, I’m interested).

I think I mentioned it in another thread, but Im hoping for an NC-11 runoff between Cawthorn and Edwards. Early results are showing Edwards won outright. So MadCaw is eliminated, I guess being ambiguously gay was just a step too far for the local trumpers.

I'm interested in pretty much what you listed, also curious how the GOP Senate primary in PA will go.

With enough Trump backed people losing, I think DeSantis essentially drops the act and confirms he's running.

Looks like some pundits (Cook Political Report) are moving races towards the Dems with some of the republican wins. PA Governor race as an example

Prob not great that Conor Lamb gave up incumbency in a super tight district just to lose the senate primary. Is that district being reworked at all?

I've informally polled the one person I know who lives in PA, and he is hoping for an Oz / Fetterman matchup because he thinks Oz will have significantly less appeal to moderate swing voters.

I admittedly did not vote, as I really haven't taken the time to research the different candidates.

I assume lots of people are in the same boat, and that's often why we have bad/extreme candidates winning the primaries (because the ideologues, hacks and extremists are the majority of the people who vote in the primaries)

Seems like Pelosi’s PAC could be focused on this instead of the very dangerous gamble of funding far right candidates

She definitely has a chance. The reports of independents breaking toward Dems in other states’ recent elections has me hopeful. A big turnout is the only thing that is going to get her a win though, much bigger than most midterms in NC.

I’ve liked her 2 punch combo in this campaign. In my texts she has been direct that she wouldn’t be another Sinema or Manchin. No one thinks she’s going to join the progressive caucus anytime soon, but she would be a reliable vote in key Dem priorities. My YouTube and other streaming services ads have invoked her pragmatic judgeship on issues that everyone supports like human trafficking. I gave her another $50 today.

hell yes. That's at least one little punch in the mouth to Team MAGA, and one less complete dipshit for the ages in Congress.

I don't know a lot about the other candidate, but the little bit I heard about her sounded favorable.

DeSantis put an October gas tax holiday which means two weeks before the midterms gas prices are gonna shoot up, which a big chunk of people will certainly blame on Biden/dems.

All I know is that it feels like she is hardly hitting any kind of airwaves.

I have seen like a fraction of ads for her while that MAGA of a troll opponent of hers is like BIDEN AND BEASLEY DID INFLATION every 15 frigging minutes, especially during football. C’mon Cheri, AT LEAST lean into the fact he’s a Jan 6 guy and supports a nationwide abortion ban.

I was feeling okay when Jeff Jackson backed out, cause Beasley’s experience and expertise was frankly better, but man, I know he’d be a LOT louder by now!

Beasley/Budd debate is tonight, 8pm, can watch at https://spectrumlocalnews.com/live

I'm obviously voting for Beasley, but her campaign has been so predictably underwhelming and has been for almost 2 years. i'm not convinced she's gonna pull it off

Marjorie Taylor Greene posted on Truth Social that she stopped at the Wilder monument in Georgia to "honor Confederate soldiers". The problem? It is a monument to Union soldiers. She included photos of her at the site.

I'm sure she knew that and how "you people" would respond and just did it to annoy you. Those are the kind of genius, 3-D chess moves the modern GOP uses to own the libs! You wish you could be as smart.

Fetterman has cratered and Walker has a shot. This really could be a bloodbath for the Dems and as someone to the left of their party, I would say they need only to look to themselves. They funded some of the far right candidates in the primaries who now may win.

Less far right candidates also would have won. But at least they wouldn't be as insane. 6 years is a long time.
