Republicans are eventually going to win, so Democrats should just give up.
 
2022-11-28 2:48:00 PM  
That must be why Governor-Elect is a member of the Democratic Party and the both of the current U.S. Senators and a majority of their U.S. House of Representatives are Democratic as well.

The idiocy in Cochise County is a long play, and not everyone is talking about it.

Katie Hobbs HAS to sue to set precedent here. Republicans would be ABSOLUTELY FINE with losing a seat or two because the county's ballots weren't counted, because guess what they're going to be doing all over the farking COUNTRY in 2024 if they get away with it?

Is the DNC going to shovel millions of dollars at her if anyone dares challenge an incumbent?

Losing Manchin would be ok with me.  He's a giant douche.  Sinema is going to lose her primary, as well she should.  She has no interest in being a Senator when she can be an intern at a winery.   The only one I'd be really worried about losing are going to be the MT and OH race.  Sherrod Brown is a great senator, but he's in a super red state.  John Tester has been an ok senator, but he's also in a really Trumpy state.

Starting the 2024 talk already huh? Has Trump not farted out anything that could be greenlit in the last few minutes?
 
2022-11-28 6:00:53 PM  
I expect Sinema and/or Manchin to leave the Senate after 2024 (if not sooner) and are hired as MSNBC's newest conservative-splainers.
 
2022-11-28 6:00:55 PM  
The Senate map for 2024 is brutal. Twice as many Democrats are up for election as Republicans (23 vs 11) and several of them are in purple to blue states.  If you assume Manchin will lose his seat to a Repubilcan, then Democrats have to win every single one of them (and win the presidency) to keep a 50/50 majority in 2025. Meanwhile, the most competitive states for Republicans are Texas and Florida.
 
2022-11-28 6:01:14 PM  
Manchin and Sinema prevented voting rights from passing by colluding with Republicans, they should be tarred and feathered by the Democratic Party leadership.

I just want to know where the Texas thread is.

Houston is boiling their water because, you know, small cities like that have a difficult time with funding for things like critical infrastructure resources. I'm curious to know more about it and to hear from some Houston area Farkers.

Yeah, but...horserace...

It's becoming obvious that a lot of our media cannot wait for the new Goebbels  to take the reins and just give them copy to publish. And this time there will be no 'propaganda' in the Ministry name. Just something simple like 'Ministry of Culture and Public Enlightenment.' It will make journalism sooooo easy.

These people are what are known as 'cowards.'

No matter who runs against her in the primary, they will get gobs of small value donations from people nationwide. The DNC would do well to take notice of that (they won't, of course).

With any luck Manchin ,Sinema and Tester will be ousted in the primary.


If Tester and Manchin get primaried (and they won't. If they run they will easily win) you can kiss those seats bye-bye. I don't care how nice and progressive their replacements are and how much money they get; those seats will be easy R wins.

Sinema has the opposite problem. She *has* to go in the primary because she can no longer win a general.
 
2022-11-28 6:28:38 PM  
Both Sinema and Manchin need to be primaried. Sinema is a liar who ran on progressive values and then swapped to Republican values for money (and attention). Manchin is just a Republican filling in for a Democratic placeholder.

Also, pre-emptively screw all your "only Manchin or a Republican can win in West Virginia." That's defeatist from the get go.

Nobody likes Sinema, and her state is at worst pure purple.  She's toast, and the DNC can see this.

Now, Manchin is a completely different kettle of fish, since he is literally the only human being who could win in his state as a Democrat.

2022-11-28 6:37:07 PM  
Manchin is a tool. A slightly useful tool, like an old wrench you use as a pry bar. I don't think we could get a D or another DINO in there.
Simena should be primaried out of existence, or better find something to charge her with and get rid of her. Can you impeach a senator? I'd love to see her denied a pension.
She could reasonably be replaced by a real Democrat running for the things she promised then abandoned for sweet cash.
Besides, I don't see the Republicans solving their absolute shit pool of candidates problem any time soon. High quality candidates just aren't running as Republicans anymore, each one of them is a grifter or a fool.

And Tester is a pretty good guy, all things considered.  At least he doesn't shout off his mouth like Manchin and Sinema do constantly.

So you want to purposefully fund primary challenges for all 3 candidates (two of whom are in ludicrously red states) so you can piss away incumbency advantage?

Have you been hit in the head?  Or are you just extra amounts of stupid?

/Sinema I can see.  Arizona is becoming more and more competitive and she has absolutely no principles at all (and even though I hate progressives, she essentially ran as one and then basically gave them the finger.  Lying and misrepresenting yourself is not cool).

She surely pissed off all the people that supported her when she did her douche downvote and virtually everything she campaigned on she voted against or ignored. She's not making it out of a primary no matter what the DNC does.

Her political career is over and when she calls around to all her Reich-wing friends it will be "new phone, who dis?" so she better learn how to flip burgers

A primary challenge to Sinema would be reasonable enough. Unlike Manchin, she isn't facing re-election in a deep red state, and her "quirkiness" is kind of baffling.

West Virginia went for Trump at a rate higher than literally any other state in the union (I think technically Wyoming was very slightly redder but no one lives there anyway).  No one but Manchin is winning that seat as a democrat.  No one.  Period.  End of discussion.

It's not defeatist, it's being a freaking realist

/Alabama went for Trump 62-36.  West Virginia went 69-30.  Almost +40 Trump.  If you can get a D in a state that's +40 Trump, you take it.  Because no one else is.

After AOC got elected in 2018, the DSCC and DCCC started blackballing progressives, a practice that only officially ended less than 2 years ago.

https://www.commondreams.org/news/2019/08/29/even-worse-dccc-blacklist-schumer-accused-effort-hamstring-progressives-trying

I say "officially" since we've still seen some shady shiat by the party establishment after the 2020 election.
