AdLib On November - 6 - 2018
Our Election Night Live Chat begins tonight at 7:00pm EST. It will be an historic night, hope to see you here!
AdLib 6 hours ago
Hey PPO!
AdLib 6 hours ago
hey Ad. Timing’s out! When do we start?
pinkpantheroz

6 hours ago
We’re starting now!
AdLib 6 hours ago
Hey glenn!
AdLib 6 hours ago
glenn!
pinkpantheroz

6 hours ago
Sorry, can’t see the top of the chat. Evenin’ gents. Wanted to wait until I could see a few results. I have CNN on TV, and the Atlanta Journal Constitution on my Kindle, so I’m keeping track. Not looking good for Abrams, so far, but only 3% of precincts in so far.
glenn

6 hours ago
Barbara Comstock defeated, according to CNN. One down!
glenn

6 hours ago
Comstock was a bellweather! Des are going strong!
AdLib 6 hours ago
ooops, glenn. Here’s hoping that changes.
pinkpantheroz

6 hours ago
It’s a good start!
glenn

6 hours ago
PPO–No, it’s a good thing. Comstock is an R.
glenn

6 hours ago
PPO–or are you talking about Abrams?
glenn

6 hours ago
can someone over there ask why so many places have ‘inop’ machines and insufficient paper ballots? Did they not know there were elections due?
pinkpantheroz

6 hours ago
Abrams, Ad.
pinkpantheroz

6 hours ago
PPO–Because repubs are in charge of most voting machines in those places, and they’ll do ANY thing to win.
glenn

6 hours ago
PPO – It’s designed malfunctions, purposeful to limit voting because Repubs know they just can’t win in a fair election where everyone votes.
AdLib 6 hours ago
Speaking of Abrams, I think it’s going to take a long time to count ALL of the votes tonight, especially the “metro” precincts.
glenn

6 hours ago
Someone should still be called out on it. So blatant
pinkpantheroz

6 hours ago
glenn – Early returns are not meaningful, you never know if they’re mostly coming from Repub districts or Dem districts. That’s the key to assessing results. Which districts are in and which are outstanding.
AdLib 6 hours ago
Ad–that’s why I think it’s going to take a long time to count the ballots from the Dem districts here in GA.
glenn

6 hours ago
PPO – The only ones to start calling out this violation of constitutional rights is the DoJ…which is led by the racist and vote suppressing Jeff Sessions. Otherwise, there are the courts but they are less reliable now with all the Trump appointees.
AdLib 6 hours ago
glenn – I agree, the GA results will drag out. And no matter who’s ahead, if they’re at less than 50%, it’s not over, there’s a runoff!
AdLib 6 hours ago
PPO–don’t know if they’ll follow up on it or not, but top Dems here in GA are calling for an investigation of Kemp (Abrams’ opponent, who is also in charge of elections) are calling for an investigation into Kemp if Abrams wins. Hell, there should be an investigation into Kemp even if he wins. He’s been a sleazebag throughout this whole process.
glenn

6 hours ago
Brat is down a point so far but it’s early. That would be great, to kick him out of Congress!
AdLib 6 hours ago
Ad–yes, that’s what I fear most–a runoff, cause Kemp will pull out even more voter suppression tactics then.
glenn

6 hours ago
Worrisome, but inevitable, I suppose
pinkpantheroz

6 hours ago
glenn – But who would handle the investigation of Kemp?
AdLib 6 hours ago
BRB covfefe break
pinkpantheroz

6 hours ago
glenn – No doubt that it would be best for Abrams to get over 50% and win now but if there is a runoff, there would be time for legal action to restrain Kemp from overseeing the election and using his dirty tricks.
AdLib 6 hours ago
Ad–I agree. Even if Kemp wins, he should be prosecuted for malfeasance. Don’t know if you heard or not, but he accused Dems of hacking, when it was his office that screwed it up, and was notified by Dems of the glitch in the state-wide system. He should be at least investigated for that by the DOJ.
glenn

6 hours ago
Ad–hopefully, it would be the DOJ, as you say. But I have my doubts, especially if Kemp wins.
glenn

6 hours ago
Yes, I heard all about that. It’s purposeful on Kemp’s part to lie and deceive about that. The courts need to get involved!
AdLib 6 hours ago
Ad–If there is a runoff, every Dem in office in GA should be DEMANDING that Kemp resign as SOS. Won’t hold my breath, but that’s what should be happening.
glenn

6 hours ago
Ad–Kemp is a sleazeball!
glenn

6 hours ago
They should, glenn. I would hope that the groundswell would become overwhelming to force Kemp out. His win, no matter what, would be illegitimate to half of GA anyway.
AdLib 6 hours ago
Only 1% of GA in so don’t worry about numbers for Abrams yet.
AdLib 5 hours ago
More polls closing in just a few minutes!
AdLib 5 hours ago
He will certainly be illegitimate to me, Ad. I still cannot wrap my mind around the fact that a candidate is overseeing his own election. It’s such an outrage, and I just don’t know why he was allowed to get away with it.
glenn

5 hours ago
What’s the difference between Putin’s fraud elections and Kemp’s? Less killing of opponents is about it.
AdLib 5 hours ago
Comstock defeated, can’t hear it enough!
AdLib 5 hours ago
Ad–exactly in the comparison of putin and kemp. Can you imagine if a Dem tried to do this?
glenn

5 hours ago
Gillum outperforming Hillary in FL so far.
AdLib 5 hours ago
Ad–just heard “too close to call” in governor’s race in FL, so it’s tight!
glenn

5 hours ago
Nelson up by 5 over Rick Scott, Gillum up by 5 over De Santis so far, with around 18% in.
AdLib 5 hours ago
glenn – But Gillum and Nelson are still up by 3%-4%, not enough to call the race yet.
AdLib 5 hours ago
Ad–yeah, it’s gonna be a long night in both FL and GA, I think.
glenn

5 hours ago
What’s the deal in CA? Any tight races there?
glenn

5 hours ago
Ad–I know it’s early yet in CA, but any results yet?
glenn

5 hours ago
Will be but again, no idea which districts are in. If big blue districts are not in yet, Gillum and Nelson could pull away.
AdLib 5 hours ago
I hope Gillum and Nelson bury the repubs! Especially Nelson, who is running against Scott.
glenn

5 hours ago
CA polls don’t close for 3 hours! And yes, a number of Repub House seats very close against Dem takeovers.
AdLib 5 hours ago
Isn’t Nunes from CA? I can’t keep up, but did he resign?
glenn

5 hours ago
Gov Wolf wins in PA.
AdLib 5 hours ago
Yay! Dems need to get as many governorships as they can!
glenn

5 hours ago
Issa resigned and his seat will likely go to a Dem but Nunes is in a heavily Repub district and unllikely to lose but his race against Janz is in single digits.
AdLib 5 hours ago
Shalala winning!
pinkpantheroz

5 hours ago
Wow! I thought Shalala was in trouble.
AdLib 5 hours ago
Ad–good luck to Janz.
glenn

5 hours ago
well, Pelosi is congratting her Fla-27?
pinkpantheroz

5 hours ago
Yep, wish he coud beat Nunes but very hard to do so. Yet, if Dems take over, I would hope he would be investigated for his collusion with Trump and thrown out.
AdLib 5 hours ago
Ok guys, gonna keep the TV on, but I’ve gotta go get something to eat, so will be back soon.
glenn

5 hours ago
gillum up by 4K – 20K to go!
pinkpantheroz

5 hours ago
Okay, see you shortly!
AdLib 5 hours ago
Nice!!!
AdLib 5 hours ago
KY06 McGrth (D) up 6 points!
pinkpantheroz

5 hours ago
Wow, that would be great if Dems won that seat!
AdLib 5 hours ago
Warren OK. Beat Diehl
pinkpantheroz

5 hours ago
FL races neck and neck, wish I knew whether more blue or red districts were still uncounted!
AdLib 5 hours ago
shalala confirmed winner
pinkpantheroz

5 hours ago
Sweet!
AdLib 5 hours ago
Another gain!
AdLib 5 hours ago
VA 10 Flipped. Wexton
pinkpantheroz

5 hours ago
CNN saying more Dem votes outstanding in FL.
AdLib 5 hours ago
Brown in Ohio looking good
pinkpantheroz

5 hours ago
So far 13 net seats Dems are ahead in House race, that would be over half way there!
AdLib 5 hours ago
Brown was declared winner by MSNBC.
AdLib 5 hours ago
Denton County Tx. Major power outage affecting polling booths! Hmmmmm
pinkpantheroz

5 hours ago
Beto ahead but still very early.
AdLib 5 hours ago
Pritzker wins IL governor! A pickup from Repubs!
AdLib 5 hours ago
Tx booths that opened late have been ordered to stay open another hour
pinkpantheroz

5 hours ago
I saw that! The rigging of the election is only a Repub game and it’s disgusting!
AdLib 5 hours ago
Cordray ahead in OH governor race.
AdLib 5 hours ago
MD stays red
pinkpantheroz

5 hours ago
Governor that is
pinkpantheroz

5 hours ago
That was kind of expected.
AdLib 5 hours ago
Same with MA.
AdLib 5 hours ago
ND First americans voting in huge numbers with new IDs! Ha ha
pinkpantheroz

5 hours ago
That’s great news!
AdLib 5 hours ago
That cow Kim Davis, anti gay clerk, lost!
pinkpantheroz

5 hours ago
Heh! And the guy running against her was refused a license by her! How fitting!
AdLib 5 hours ago
Menendez NJ up!
pinkpantheroz

5 hours ago
Muslim lady wins!
pinkpantheroz

5 hours ago
Half the vote in Broward, heavily Dem, still out. Dems can win Gov and Senate in FL!
AdLib 5 hours ago
How is dade?
pinkpantheroz

5 hours ago
At least for now, Beto ahead 53.1 to Cruz at 46.2 with 46% of the vote in. Could be some big Repub districts still out but for now, this is pretty cool!
AdLib 5 hours ago
Dade is like 75% in so many Dem votes there too.
AdLib 5 hours ago
A bit of a lull in the action right now!
AdLib 5 hours ago
GO Beto!
pinkpantheroz

5 hours ago
Houston and El Paso, big Dem districts, aren’t even in yet!
AdLib 5 hours ago
Right now, Dems have won 2 seats and lead in 21 seats, that’s about all they need! And that doesn’t include any states where the polls haven’t closed yet. Including CA where Dems should pick up at least 2-3.
AdLib 5 hours ago
Choppy seas, rather than a tsunami, eh?
pinkpantheroz

5 hours ago
Yep, don’t really understand it. The voter turnout is huge, young voters and minority voters surged and Trump has a limited base. Hate to say it but something smells a little fishy.
AdLib 5 hours ago
Red switch senate IN – B raun to win
pinkpantheroz

5 hours ago
Wow, that’s fantastic!
AdLib 5 hours ago
Oh…Braun is Repub, right. That sucks.
AdLib 5 hours ago
Hard for Dems to win The Senate if Donnelly loses to Braun.
AdLib 5 hours ago
Beto holding a 3% lead with 51% in.
AdLib 5 hours ago
Can’t work out if Amy McGrath is winnin or losing
pinkpantheroz

5 hours ago
8 minutes until many more state results come in!
AdLib 5 hours ago
I’m back. It’s not looking as good as I wanted it to be. Please, please, don’t let this be a repeat of the presidential elections! HELP!
glenn

4 hours ago
A bit disappointed about FL…which always disappoints. DeSantis is an open racist and nearly half of Floridians support him???
AdLib 4 hours ago
Can I just say…I hate FL?
AdLib 4 hours ago
Manchin wins.
AdLib 4 hours ago
Ad–I know. WTH is wrong with those old people? Damn!
glenn

4 hours ago
Polls closing. Casey in PA, Klobuchar in MN, Gillibrand in NY and Heinrich in NM all win their Senate seats.
AdLib 4 hours ago
Ad–Much as I hate Manchin’s vote for Kavanaugh; we need all the Dems we can get.
glenn

4 hours ago
Ad–Are those all Dems?
glenn

4 hours ago
Yep, I’m no purist, I’ll take a Manchin if it helps Dems win The Senate in 2020.
AdLib 4 hours ago
Yep, all Dems.
AdLib 4 hours ago
Ad–okay good.
glenn

4 hours ago
Ewww–blackburn wins! YUK!
glenn

4 hours ago
I think Dems win The House but don’t know that they win FL or GA.
AdLib 4 hours ago
Yeah, I agree. I wanted them to win soooo badly.
glenn

4 hours ago
brb coffee!
pinkpantheroz

4 hours ago
I guess it’s not surprising that Blackburn wins in the reddest state but I was hoping Dems could win it.
AdLib 4 hours ago
According to my AJC results, only 17% of precincts in, so there’s still hope. Although Kemp has almost twice the percentage of votes than Abrams does. 63%-37%
glenn

4 hours ago
At least 1.5 million people will be given back voting rights in FL, the amendment is passing.
AdLib 4 hours ago
Hopefully, that turns out to be a good thing.
glenn

4 hours ago
Not giving up on Abrams, glenn, but she has such an uphill battle against Kemp’s cheating.
AdLib 4 hours ago
Ad–yeah, blackburn is in a red state; I just wanted to see Dems overcome all of that redness. Hope the Dem party in that state keeps up the pressure, at least. Sure wish her race would have been closer.
glenn

4 hours ago
Ad–Not giving up on Abrams, either. I think Kemp’s office is going to take its time counting absentee and provisional ballots.
glenn

4 hours ago
Ad–and I think many of Abrams’ supporters probably had to cast provisional ballots.
glenn

4 hours ago
These Repubs like Blackburn are such poisonous human beings but they reflect so many of their voters. Racism works, it is working in FL, GA, etc.
AdLib 4 hours ago
Ad–I just don’t understand it. I’m white and old, and I just can’t understand their thinking. Hate is no way to live.
glenn

4 hours ago
glenn – Same here, it’s like trying to understand aliens.
AdLib 4 hours ago
I would venture to say that very few of those racists ever had a job taken by a black, or an immigrant (legal or otherwise), or even interacted with either one. I just don’t get it! How can you hate someone you don’t even know?
glenn

4 hours ago
49.9 to 49.4 Beto and Cruz, with Beto having the 49.9. If Beto squeaks out this win, it might make up for FL and GA. Or, at least it will go a long way toward making me feel a tad better.
glenn

4 hours ago
I think it’s about children who are raised with a sense of white entitlement by racist parents and when they see they may be losing that, they have fear and hatred towards POC.
AdLib 4 hours ago
Ad–that’s about as good an explanation as any.
glenn

4 hours ago
I think you’re right about many Abrams voters having to cast provisional ballots which aren’t being counted yet.
AdLib 4 hours ago
Sorry, folks, got to head out. Please God it works out for us! Take care
pinkpantheroz

4 hours ago
Nite PPO. Take care
glenn

4 hours ago
Agree, if Beto can pull it out, that would be a far more shocking win than a racist and wealthy polluter winning in FL.
AdLib 4 hours ago
Did you see the video of cruz and beto with Triumph the insult comic dog? That was priceless!
glenn

4 hours ago
Also, I soooo want to cruz smarm his way through a concession speech!
glenn

4 hours ago
sorry, soooo want to see
glenn

4 hours ago
Dead even! 49.7 apiece in TX
glenn

4 hours ago
Yep, posted that video of Triumph on the post today. Hilarious slam on Cruz!
AdLib 4 hours ago
Another PA Rep win!
AdLib 4 hours ago
Yeah, just saw that! Three pick-ups so far. Only 20 more to go!
glenn

4 hours ago
Dems up 3 seats with 21 or more still favored for them.
AdLib 4 hours ago
Without counting many states yet.
AdLib 4 hours ago
Hopefully, those are Dem states.
glenn

4 hours ago
Many of them, yes, including CA.
AdLib 4 hours ago
According to Rachel, only 100 votes separate Beto and Cruz right now. WOW!
glenn

4 hours ago
It’s way too close in TX for it to be acceptable to Repubs.
AdLib 4 hours ago
Yeah, the cheating should start soon, especially with Abbott retaining the governorship.
glenn

4 hours ago
Beto now up 51% to 49%!
AdLib 4 hours ago
That was a joke, hopefully!
glenn

4 hours ago
The cheating is baked into the election system in TX, was it fairer, I think Beto would be much farther ahead.
AdLib 4 hours ago
Keep going Beto! According to MSNBC, in Beto’s district, El Paso, polls aren’t closed yet, so he actually could bring it over the top.
glenn

4 hours ago
Dems win another seat in CO.
AdLib 4 hours ago
Yeah, just heard that about CO. I’m still not breathing yet.
glenn

4 hours ago
Dems are on track to win The House. And if Beto wins? There will be a lot for Dems to be happy about but Repubs will gloat if Dems don’t win in FL and GA. Damn racists!
AdLib 4 hours ago
Anywhere repubs are in charge of who gets to vote and who counts the votes, cheating is baked in.
glenn

4 hours ago
Dems leading right now in a net 26 seats, three more than needed to flip the House.
AdLib 4 hours ago
I agree. The racists will be out gloating out in force tomorrow, beginning with the racist in chief.
glenn

4 hours ago
And Trump will be gloating about all Repub victories, ignoring Dem victories.
AdLib 4 hours ago
That’s good news. We need to have a cushion.
glenn

4 hours ago
Yeah, especially the Senate ones. He’ll never acknowledge Dems taking back the House, if that happens.
glenn

4 hours ago
The way it looks now, Dems will win back the House winning the suburbs but the Repubs stay strong in states with big rural areas.
AdLib 4 hours ago
Actually, I hope his head starts to explode if Dems take the House, and finishes exploding when the investigations begin in Jan.
glenn

4 hours ago
In the end, the most important victory the country needs is for Dems to take over The House.
AdLib 4 hours ago
But I hate losing to racists.
AdLib 4 hours ago
Looks like there might be a runoff in the FL senate race. Almost all votes in and it’s really close.
glenn

4 hours ago
Not a runoff but a recount in FL. GA has runoffs, FL doesn’t.
AdLib 4 hours ago
Yup. I can’t believe how many racists there are in the U
glenn

4 hours ago
in the US
glenn

4 hours ago
More than I used to think there were. But Dems are winning and leading in many Repub districts right now, winning control of Congress is the big one we need to win.
AdLib 4 hours ago
Oh, geez, another recount. With a republican legislature, and a republican SOS, I’m sure it will be fair.
glenn

4 hours ago
As fair as a wolf counting chickens.
AdLib 4 hours ago
LOL!
glenn

4 hours ago
MSNBC says it’s now a 70% chance Dems take the House.
AdLib 4 hours ago
Just saw that, too. Let’s hope it holds!
glenn

4 hours ago
I think it will. Most other states are performing as expected for the most part…except racist FL!!!
AdLib 4 hours ago
Just checked GA results. Abrams is at 44% to Kemp’s 55%. She’s tightening it up! YAY!
glenn

4 hours ago
Beto ahead by 5,000 votes!!! Repubs may win in FL but Beto winning in TX is more shattering.
AdLib 4 hours ago
NICE!!!
AdLib 4 hours ago
Go Beto!
glenn

4 hours ago
Kobach losing so far so KS Gov looks very possible!
AdLib 4 hours ago
For Dems that is!
AdLib 4 hours ago
Oh good, Kobach losing puts a smile on my face!
glenn

4 hours ago
Evers ahead just barely over Walker in WI with 20% in by 1.5%.
AdLib 4 hours ago
Now up to an 80% chance of Dem takeover of the House on MSNBC!
AdLib 4 hours ago
Walker is another smarmy face I’d like to see lose!
glenn

4 hours ago
Starting to go from “cautiously” optimistic to optimistic! LOL!
glenn

4 hours ago
Trump can boast about any Repub wins tonight but the only win that directly hurts him is Dems in power in The House.
AdLib 4 hours ago
Yeah, and if Beto pulls out a win, Dems can gloat about how the lying bully couldn’t save cruz.
glenn

4 hours ago
The country and our democracy will be protected by this one result, can’t dwell on any other losses. If the tables were turned and Dems won everything but The House, we’d be in hell.
AdLib 4 hours ago
Yes, if Beto can destroy Cruz AND show that Dems can win in TX??? Repubs will be far more freaked out.
AdLib 4 hours ago
It will make me breathe a lot easier if Dems pull out the win in the House. Of course, you do know that it will make the lying bully even more of a liar and a bully?
glenn

4 hours ago
Dems leading in 33 seats, Repubs in 7 so a net of 26 seats they lead in with 5 already won. And western states including CA still not counted! We will do this!
AdLib 4 hours ago
Repubs just picked up a new district in PA
glenn

4 hours ago
Yes, that was expected but Dems netted more wins in PA, Remember, they had new districts drawn.
AdLib 4 hours ago
I know Dems are still ahead, but you know me; I’m a nervous nellie!
glenn

4 hours ago
5 Dem House wins in PA vs. 1 Repub win.
AdLib 4 hours ago
If I forget to say this, thanks for helping me through this, Ad. I’m not sure I could be watching this by myself!
glenn

4 hours ago
Same to you! This is nailbiting, great to be watching it with you. Don’t know where everyone else is! Maybe too nervous to chat about it?
AdLib 4 hours ago
Just checked MO on my KIndle. Claire seems to be doing well; she’s ahead by almost 8 points.
glenn

4 hours ago
I think Murph said he’d be helping out at Claire’s headquarters; don’t know about anyone else.
glenn

4 hours ago
Wow, Claire was counted out weeks ago. Her win would be a big victory.
AdLib 4 hours ago
Brat is losing!!!
AdLib 4 hours ago
Awww, gee, I’m so sorry Brat is losing. Is it by a large margin?
glenn

4 hours ago
Pickup in CO for House! Pickup in MI too! Down to just 17 seat pickup now!
AdLib 3 hours ago
With a net 23 seats Dems are leading in right now! Not including the West!
AdLib 3 hours ago
Results are coming in quickly now!
glenn

3 hours ago
4 minutes until more states report!
AdLib 3 hours ago
Just checked GA again. In a state where there are NO paper ballots; it’s all done on machines; still only 38% of precincts reporting. What a crock! Abrams 43% Kemp 56%
glenn

3 hours ago
YAY! Kobach goes down!
glenn

3 hours ago
Cruz leading now…by only 43k votes! 50 to 49!
AdLib 3 hours ago
Two more pickups for Dem house seats! only 15 left to pickup!!!
AdLib 3 hours ago
WOO-HOO! Kobach’s loss is huge and a big Trump loss!
AdLib 3 hours ago
Damn! Do you know how many of the precincts reported in TX?
glenn

3 hours ago
YUK Romney is going to the Senate.
glenn

3 hours ago
Only 14% of vote in TX.
AdLib 3 hours ago
Romney the slimeball. Hope Rosen and Tester can win!
AdLib 3 hours ago
Oh, that’s good news. Beto could still pull it off!
glenn

3 hours ago
Another win in PA and one in NY Woo-hoo!
glenn

3 hours ago
BRB Ad
glenn

3 hours ago
Yeah baby!
AdLib 3 hours ago
ok!
AdLib 3 hours ago
Now 95% chance of Dems taking House!
AdLib 3 hours ago
Tester ahead in Montana!
AdLib 3 hours ago
Ouch. Cruz wins in TX.
AdLib 3 hours ago
Yeah, saw that 95% chance! Then saw that Heitkemp lost, and now just saw that cruz won! Damn!
glenn

3 hours ago
So now that Beto has probably lost, the good that Dems can take out of it is that he taught Dems how to run a campaign in TX. It’s the ground game, baby! Hopefully, Dems will learn that lesson all over the US! Ground game!
glenn

3 hours ago
Geez, I’m so smart. Rachel is saying the same thing I just did. The Dems need to take note!
glenn

3 hours ago
Hard to beat all the racists in The South, so many great people there too including you and my wife’s family. The lesson I’ve learned from 2016 and 2018, it’s still going to be a while until the racists are outnumbered in the South. Maybe less than 10 years but I’m not counting on it for 2020.
AdLib 3 hours ago
Yes! You’re both brilliant!
AdLib 3 hours ago
And if Dems can spend resources on improving elections and voting in TX in the meantime, since TX rates 50th in percentage of eligible voters voting, the day that Dems win statewide again could be sooner than later. It doesn’t help to have voting machines that change votes from Dems to Repubs.
AdLib 3 hours ago
I think you’re partially correct, Ad. The South is racist, for sure, but they’re not the only area of the country that is. There are some “flyover” states that are just as racist, they just don’t get the publicity the South does, IMO.
glenn

3 hours ago
Yeah, Dems better learn some damn lessons from TX! I think we have to have some dynamic leadership at the national level, like we had with Dean.
glenn

3 hours ago
Yes, there are big racist populations even in MA and my state, CA. The difference is that they don’t represent as big of a percentage of voters here. However, in the midwest, they can be a bigger percentage.
AdLib 3 hours ago
Back to 44% for Abrams and 55% for Kemp with 52% of precincts reporting.
glenn

3 hours ago
You have to remember, too, that the older population of Fl, who vote R, are not native Floridians. They are mostly people from the northeastern states and midwest like Michigan and Ohio.
glenn

3 hours ago
What I’m observing though in this election is that the blue wave is happening but in certain areas in the country, not as much in Southern states (though in some districts in Southern states). Since Trump’s projected theme for the midterms was racism, it makes me think that the percentage of voters receptive to that is higher in states that aren’t demonstrating a blue wave.
AdLib 3 hours ago
Don’t think I explained that too well, but what I meant is that those northerners brought their prejudices with them.
glenn

3 hours ago
Yeah, I’m not defending the South; it may take another generation or so, because the young people in the South have interacted with and lived with minorities on a much more equal footing than their parents do/did. There is hope; there’s always hope.
glenn

3 hours ago
Yep, that same insecurity and programming that leads people to be racist isn’t unique to any section of the country.
AdLib 3 hours ago
Okay, I’m breathing now.
glenn

3 hours ago
Pete Sessions just lost his seat!!!
AdLib 3 hours ago
I don’t care what Beto said, he’s now free to run for President!
AdLib 3 hours ago
And another one bites the dust!
glenn

3 hours ago
13 net gain of House seats! Only 10 left and CA alone could have 7!
AdLib 3 hours ago
Oh, I so hope he does! I really don’t want to see Biden, Sanders or Clinton run again. We need young blood!
glenn

3 hours ago
MSNBC declares Dems win The House!!!
AdLib 3 hours ago
YES!!!!
AdLib 3 hours ago
Yup. Saw that, that’s why I’m breathing now!
glenn

3 hours ago
Hey Kes!
glenn

Hey Kes! Just in time for the best news of the night!
AdLib 3 hours ago
Trump will be stopped!!!
AdLib 3 hours ago

Just glad you’re here, Kes! Thanks for doing such important work! Now, the payoff! Dems take the House!

I turned on PBS and things are looking good! We have no news source at the polls, so I was in the dark all day long.

Adam Schiff now leads the Intelligence Committee! And Mueller can now release his report to a House that will act on it and make it public! And Trump’s tax returns will be had!

glenn, sorry to see that about Abrams. Kemp played SO dirty.

Kes–Abrams has been behind all night; I was hoping it would be closer, but I don’t know which precincts have reported yet.
glenn

AdLic that’s what the analysts are saying — FL will be voting differently now.

Kes–no Kemp didn’t play dirty–he out and out cheated, but no one will call him on it.

glenn, that’s disgraceful.

Kes – I am no longer taking FL sanity in elections as a probable but hoping this could do it.
AdLib 3 hours ago
Yes…I’m thinking there will be lots of trickle down effects from this election — for years to come.

Kemp has no legitimacy as Gov. He is a fraud and a cheat and a liar. Maybe Abrams will have to come back at him when he tries for re-election, by then maybe he will be so reviled she can beat him even with Repub cheating.
AdLib 3 hours ago
Kes–I know.

Abrams is just wonderful. She deserves a bright future.

MSNBC is saying now that even in Abrams loses statewide, there will probably be congressional seats picked up on her coat tails. A glimmer of hope.
glenn

That’s a great consolation glenn. And Abrams is too wonderful a candidate to not come back if she loses.
AdLib 3 hours ago
Kes–I know. I love listening to her talk. She actually reminds me of Beto with her positive message. Although she had to address Kemp’s disgraceful shenanigans with voter suppression, she always did with reciting facts and figures, not insults.
glenn

Tester way ahead!

That was my perception of her too, glenn. Calm, optimistic, brilliant and SANE!

Hey…how about a Beto/Abrams ticket in 2020? And what about Gillum? He’s fantastic too! Dems were missing young talent and this year they’ve got an embarassment of riches for the future!
AdLib 3 hours ago
I love all three of them!

Abrams should run for Secretary of State. She would be great; she is so knowledgeable about voting rights and procedures. She is the founder of the New Georgia Project, which registered “forgotten” voters, more than 20,000 of them.
glenn

glenn – That would be perfect! She absolutely should and then leverage that into running for Gov again.
AdLib 3 hours ago
Ad–I’m with you on that 2020 ticket.

Alright, Ad. Now that I can breathe again, I think I’m going to call it a night. Disappointed about Beto and Abrams and probably Gillum. But we have the House! So, I’m checking out now.

Goodnight Kes, goodnight Ad. Ad, thanks for getting me through tonight. Kes, good to see you if only briefly!

If Dems have the Gov seats, as it looks like they will, in MI, WI and PA, there goes the Trump strategy for winning re-election. And redistricting those states (though PA already has fixed its districts) after the 2020 census, should help destroy the Repub advantage from gerrymandering.

Night glenn, enjoyed it!

G’night, glenn! Good to see you again. I may sign off as well — been up for many hours! Thanks for hosting, AdLib! So good to touch base again.
