    Trump won Kansas' 4th Congressional District by 27% 150 days ago. Tonight, with 47% in, the Democratic Congressional candidate is up by .3%.

    Estes underperformed Trump's margin by 20.3 points. If every district behaved like that, Dems would gain 122 (!) House seats next November.

    Ossoff up early, but lead expected to fall.

    Insanely early, but Ossoff has an 11,000-vote lead with just 25,000 (early) ballots counted (63%+ of the vote so far). _Stay tuned_, though.

    But if you retweet the attached tweet, _keep in mind_ that early results in Georgia will _dramatically_ favor Ossoff, due to demographics.

    Damn Mexicans! That job used to belong to the Irish! (I have both Irish and Mexican in my background so I am allowed to make that joke!)

    All of that is meaningless with 11 candidates running against one. That of course is viable candidates there was more than that total. We won't know if there's a political shift until the runoff in June. There very well could be. That stat however isn't an indication of anything yet.

    Ok sorry. This race is the one the republican already won? I was thinking of the Georgia race. I will look that one up.

    Oh taxes will get done. They are going up, imho. I am telling everyone to withhold more this year so you don't get caught. With the preliminary budget Trump floated, all that stuff takes money, and he's said he doesn't want to deficit spend, SOOOO taxes HAVE to go up!

    Just saw two things on the news related to this thread. Montana is DEMANDING Democrat Party support before their special election. Also, the DOW was up 200 points on news that tax reform is due to be announced very soon.
