I wish I could find it online to show y'all because it is more enraging than any other campaign ad I've seen so far this cycle. meanwhile Scott is selling himself as a fresh new voice for DC. Nelson needs to tie him to the party of Trump and chaos. going down to the detention center in Homestead was a good move. hopefully he can build from there.


Is it the one that talks about how he's "not too far left, not too far right?" I saw that on TV the other day and lost my shit.

I was searching for it and found this one that isn't the same, but also made me mad. "Bill Nelson is a strong independent voice. He opposed [AWFUL THINGS ONLY THE REPUBLICAN PARTY IS DOING]."

spent the day canvassing in the bronx for Ocasio-Cortez. Of the people who came to the door, most were pretty excited, although a couple didn't know there was an election. They say that typically about 3% turn out to the primaries. I'm still hopefully something can happen though.

I know he's not going to win, but is there any clear reason why I shouldn't vote for Patel over Maloney in the NY-12 primary tomorrow? at the very least, his campaign has pointed out a ton of :? shit Maloney has supported over the years

I've been a bit :? about some of the way Patel has run his campaign but he'd be miles better than Maloney.

I know what you mean but I also received their last two vote for me pamphlets on saturday and Maloney’s was this 4 page booklet exclusively about how she’s stood up to Trump and his agenda, not even putting forth her better ideas, just how she’s blocked his stuff. And Patel’s was, first line, “Democrats need to be more than anti-Trump” and then he listed what he wants to do so I dunno, I know it’s a low bar but that kind of contrast was pretty sharp right now

after a few canvassing efforts last year i reluctantly decided to tag out this time around, but i want some skin in the game so i threw a couple bones the way of zephyr, alexandria, and julia. really hope the world, to even the slightest degree, reflects my twitter feed!

Big fan of Zephyr. Just found out the congressman from my hometown district (ny 18) Sean Patrick Maloney is running for AG as well. He was part of the Bill Clinton admin at the end Clintons second term, and came in 3rd in the AG race in 2006. He seems like a decent dem, but I'd prefer Zephyr. The districts lines were re-drawn in the past ten years and it's becoming quite a bit more red. Where dems used to win handily, Obama only won there by about four points and Trump won by about three points. SPM has only won by about five points in his two elections for congress, so I really would prefer he stay in office there

I agree. Not allowing myself to get carried away with optimism, because I know the odds are stacked against her, but what if? What if?

Either way, Alexandria has run an incredible campaign. I'm very excited for the future.
