totally...she appears to have a lot of support in the state
I do admire her push to get more people voting....but this seems like opportunity knocking LOUDLY
special election in 2020 for this seat

Didn't seem like there was a possibility of the Dems taking the senate 2020...but the likelihood is increasing
Now if we could just figure out a way to DitchMitch

Just generally bad news for the Dems that Abrams isn't running.  If she were on the ticket it would put both Senate seats and the electoral college votes in play because she would drag everyone else up. Without her, they better to find someone charismatic quick.

I was going to randomly suggest a Georgia sports hero, like Herschel Walker. But turns out he's a Republican.

Gillibrand out

I thought she was going to be much more formidable then she ended up being.

Apparently
the troglodyte cretin, Franken-loving garbage wing of the party
has more power than we thought

But I agree, thought she was a top 10 candidate for sure
just something very fake and awkward in her appearances and internal promotion stuff

I don't know if you can blame her lack of momentum on the pro-Franken folks.  I kind of feel that's an online only phenomenon, though I could be wrong.  I have no thoughts or feelings about Gillebrand at all, before or after this primary, but I really can't recall a single thing she did as part of it.  At least duds like Delaney or Hickenlooper stood out, though for negative reasons.

Next time, can you please correct my obvious grammar mistakes when quoting me?  Ugh, that made me cringe.

I also don't think the Franken thing hurt her, if anything it is the only thing she did that gave her any identity.  I think the bigger issue is she tried to move from being center left to more progressive and the move didn't really work for anyone.

I think she probably would have done better as Klobuchar without the stories of staff abuse.
