    Count every damn vote in FL, TX, GA. Every single Damn vote. Don’t concede until it’s so.

    One of the Democrats who will help in the House is from my very own district, district 5 of Oklahoma. Kendra Horn defeated Steve Russell, a three term Republican warmonger. She worked hard, and won by a comfortable margin. On the other hand, an AWFUL Republican beat a classy, smart, experienced Democrat. The guy who won is even an anti-vaxxer, and is so bad on education, I am afraid we will lose more teachers. He said he would’ve vetoed the teacher pay raise last spring. When will people learn!!! But, I am proud to send Kendra Horn to Congress…..and, the Democrat won for governor in Kansas.

      That’s so good to hear, Carolyn. I so want Beto, Gillum, all those positive people in. Most of all is Turtle & Cruz out. BTW, what’s up w/ that nasty in CA Rohrabacher? Please tell me he’s outta here.

      {{{{{Carolyn}}}} good to see you up in here. I’m so glad for your District 5! Also ecstatic about the new female Dem gov for Kansas. I hope she can turn that state around.

    Checks & Balances. This is what we fought for. We’ve had sad losses tonight with Beto, Gillum and Ben Jealous here in MD. But lots of successes too- women all over this country, women of color have won their seats- the tide IS turning… and the HOUSE is ours! woohoo!

    Glad we took the house, but it is heartbreaking that we lost even more seats in the Senate. Praying for RBG to stay Healthy!!
    I live in California…somedays I just want us to be our own country. The “heartland” of America has lost its heart.

      Unfortunately we had an uphill battle in the Senate with majority of red states up for election. So heartbroken about Beto.

        Just listened to Beto’s speech and it’s one for the record books!

        Also heard Andrew Gillum’s concession – he’s not giving up, and neither are we!

    I am celebrating the loss of that racist scumbag – kobach.

    however, I will not be surprised if the traitor-in-chief names him to replace the other racist, sessions as ag;

    but shee … I will not put this out in the general public because it may give ideas to the racist-in-chief

    The South is still the Old South. So glad that the rest of the states had great democratic gains. Silver lining in Florida is the passing of Amendment 4 regarding restoring voting rights for certain former felons. This was 150 years in the making. I really hope these 100 diverse women who are now members of the House are kick ass, take-no-prisoner women who are ready to get shit done. This win is huge and the major reason that I am not crying in despair.

    Sorry for Claire in MO losing her seat cos one more loss to Dems, but minute she came out w/ that border Crap she was doomed. Better to lose on strong felt principles, than try to win on bogus fear mongering.

      The Green Party candidate backed out of race last week… and endorsed Sinema, but her name was still on the ballot. This race is still not decided. It’s Wednesday morning…. hope they count again. Sinema needs to win this. McSally is trumpier than trump

    1:50am in my neck of the woods. Goodnight/day to anyone still up. Winning the House is a BFD that helps to heal some of the wounds of the night.

    Many thanks to Nerdy,who has been so faithful in keeping the doors to sanity open.

      Stacey Abrams is not conceding. Some votes in Fulton county especially have not been counted and there is talk of a possible run-off. She gave a dynamite speech a few minutes ago. She is fighting!

    So, couldn’t help myself, turned on tv b4 crashing & there was Stacey Abrams giving a speech. You know I had to listen. She’s still in it. Every vote to be counted. Hot Damn! I hollered, clapped, fist bumped, you name it! You go, Stacey, you go! And the bestest funny: tv pundits thought they were about to get a concession speech. You should’ve seen their expressions when it wasn’t so! That made my best cackle of day of days. Precious!

  27. November 7, 2018 at 6:36 am

    EXCELLENT!!!!

  28. November 7, 2018 at 7:30 am

    Good morning!

    We kicked azz in my neck of the woods! We helped flip the House! Elected Mary Gay Scanlon in the new PA-05; also elected her to fill Meehan’s unexpired term in the old PA-07. Turned out both my rethug state senator and state rep. Re-elected Wolf as Governor and elected Fetterman Lt. Gov.

    As thrilled as I am with local and House results, I’m heartbroken about the Senate and a number of Governors races. Florida and Texas relatives will have to visit me; my boycott of those states continues. GA depends on the outcome of run-off/litigation…

    Well i slept through the whole thing didn’t want my pressure and sugar fluctuating. I am happy that we got the House back, Nancy smash should be chair as we definitely need a hand of experience to deal with the snakes in grass, will have to go through the individual lists to see where we lost and gained, glad Nunes won (not really) at least he will be there in person to get pissed on by our Dems, too bad Rochabacer wont get his in person. Back to catching up.. thanks Nerdy for your stella efforts

        Exactly, there was nothing close to being FAIR in our elections in GA/TX/FL. When you have to cheat by preventing African Americans who have voted for YEARS and knock them off the voting rolls by the person controlling the votes is flat out cheating. When you don’t protect the peoples voting machines where they vote for a straight ticket that gets flipped and do nothing about is CHEATING!

    Good morning Desertflower. I was worried that the Republicans could now repealed Obamacare because of their increased senate majority; I am now reading that with the Dems’ control of the House, Obamacare is safe. Many years ago, I listened to a lady from my country who is a citizen of the USA, praising the ACA for saving her life. I am a firm believer that good will always triumph over evil, no matter how long it takes. The blue wave yesterday is a perfect demonstration.

    Never thought I would see the day when it does not bother Americans that their President, Governor, politician hang around racist bigots or is a bigot. Maybe that’s because alot of them have that feeling too. There are better things ahead for Abrams, Gillum and Beto.
