Gillespie told Axelrod he ran those ads because message testing suggested it would help him win. But he said they were not the issues he wanted to focus on.

“Are those the issues I would have chosen to run on as opposed to the tax cuts and frankly even the criminal justice reform innovative proposals I put forward?” said Gillespie. “That’s where I rather the race have been about, but those weren’t what was indicating was going to move numbers and help me win.”

Fuck that article for spending so much time fretting about the potential UNFAIR WEAPONIZATION of an environment in which decades of unacknowledged misconduct is finally coming to light and producing consequences

“It’s this way not just in Congress, but in all kinds of industries: men thinking back on the kind of behaviors they didn’t think about at the time but might be construed as harassment or inappropriate," said Nicholson, the veteran Democrat who now serves as director of the Government Affairs Institute at Georgetown University.

"It’s hitting everyone, even people who are not bad actors, because you just have no idea."


Pity the powerful man who cannot remember if he repeatedly sexually harassed his subordinates!

In Mr. Culberson’s Houston district, which Mrs. Clinton narrowly carried, the ingredients seem right for an upset.

He has not hired a full-time campaign manager, and some supporters worry he does not fully realize the threat. Asked at a fund-raiser this year if he was besieged with angry calls, Mr. Culberson suggested he was not, a comment that left some attendees flabbergasted, according to a Republican present.

At least four senators are urging Al Franken to reconsider resigning, including two who issued statements calling for the resignation two weeks ago and said they now feel remorse over what they feel was a rush to judgment.

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), who urged Franken not to step down to begin with — at least not before he went through an Ethics Committee investigation — said the Minnesota senator was railroaded by fellow Democrats.

I was interested in the idea of how far a wave can take in you in CA so I made a bunch of charts to compare voter registration to presidential and house Republican performance so here they are in roughly least likely to lose to most

Paul Cook's district is kind of strange. the swing in Rohrabacher's district is really impressive especially given that Republicans have a double digit registration lead there still
