so we don't clog up other threads... let's focus our hopes, fears and nervousness in this, a safe space for all.

i'm nervous.  i don't trust the electorate to not f*ck this up again.  i guess we'll know some time between 8 and 9 pm tonight...

Beto O'Rourke shocks the world.

Everything else goes pretty close to the predicted outcome.

He runs for President if so. And possibly even if he doesn't.

I hope so. And I also hope Stacey Abrams wins.

And I hope the democrats win.

And I hope I'm right.

And I can't concentrate on anything today because I'm worried those white asshole boomers are going to fuck it all up again.

To be clear, not all boomers are jerks.

And I also know that the young peeps need to come out to vote also.

I will look at VA congressional district 7 (and 10) as early indicators....

Anything other than a shellacking for Republicans will be disappointing for me....I mean Obama got thumped why not Trump


Winning GA governorship would be real satisfying

Beto seems like too much to hope for

the races I'm interested in
Gov
FL - Gov
GA - Gov

I'm going to get a lot of satisfaction seeing Walker lose, that guy is high on my top douche-bag list

Senate
AZ - Sinema all the way 
TX - let's go Beto...(I can see presidential aspirations with this one...plus he was a skater, we need a halfpipe in the rose garden!)
Missouri....I hope Claire can hold on!
Ole Miss...how awesome would it be if Epsy get's 50%!

Blue beating across the house....like serious beat down like 240-195
hoping it's only 51-49 in the senate

Guys I voted for are probably going to crush...Donnny B and The Insane Kaine are unstoppable

Anything other than a shellacking for Republicans will be disappointing for me...
I'm soo with you on this one
like a mafia boss would say 'I wanna send a message'

I want them to know we are out there, we're blue, we vote and you need to deal with it...

I liked seeing this
 secular Democrats are among the most enthusiastic and politically engaged voters this year
my peeps!

also the ballot in FL on restoring voting rights to felons is big

Yes it totally benefits the Dems and may make that a True blue going forward
but I think if people break the law and do the time, they are still citizens and should have rights...they didn't get life in prison

oh and Weed is ballot in 2018
        Michigan and North Dakota will decide statewide measures on the legalization of adult-use cannabis.
        Utah and Missouri will consider medical marijuana legalization initiatives.
        Other states will consider smaller reforms or advisory measures, including Ohio and Wisconsin.

I canít get too into felon voting rights or weed legalization...I mean I am for them but in the relative scheme of fuckedupness itís pretty low on the totem pole...

And it wonít make Florida blue....not exactly a voting constituency you can count on...
