    They were also hoping to get top two for the Governors race and leave Republicans with only local races to vote on. So 1 for 2.

    Yep. That would've been ideal. They failed on that one. They shouldn't have but they did.

    Also, the GOP candidate who harassed a trans woman in CA lost. BADLY.

    That's a bit of a stretch. Dems did well out in CA and now need to cut the GOP delegation in half on election day. A total wipeout of all targeted races next them about a third of the seats they need to recapture the House.

    The leading candidate wanted an R to run against because it'd make him all but a shoo in to win.

    There are also 2.6 million remaining votes to count from Tuesday. Vote by mail: Effective but slow. If the House comes down to a few California districts in November, we might not know who controls it for a week or two.

    Feinstein is literally begging and pleading with her fellow members to sign the bill to stop the family separations. Not one Republican so far has agreed including all those brave warriors like Susan "The Fraud" Collins, Jeff "It Isnt Like I Have Any Political Future" Flake" and John "Sometimes Maverick" McCain. What a disgrace...

    That's how extreme their positions are right now. To get leverage on Democrats the Republicans have realized that they must have the indefensible for a policy to begin with. It's the difference between a party that will compromise to make incremental progress and a party that will not.

    Re: 115th Congress - Fantastik! Try to remember we vote in November.

    It's a clusterf-ck in the World's Greatest Deliberative Body this morning as Republicans literally shout and scream at one another over maneuvers, betrayals, and posturing.

    But as things usually go with the Freedom Caucus, the whole thing kicked off Wednesday afternoon with a literal shouting match on the House floor. Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), leader of the maniacs, confronted House Speaker Paul Ryan on the floor during an unrelated vote, accusing Ryan of doing a bait-and-switch with conservative bills and lying to Meadows about it, and saying that two of the provisions he wanted in the compromise bill were left out.

    Ryan has apparently given in and told Meadows the compromise bill—the one that's supposed to bring in the moderates—will have his provisions. Meanwhile, the moderates are completely out of the loop and have no idea what Ryan and Meadows are getting into the bill. Rep. Jeff Denham (R-CA), who has been leading the moderate faction in this fight, "told Chuck Todd on MTP Daily that 'it is unbeknownst to him' what the Freedom Caucus wants. Moreover, he said that everything that the conservative caucus wanted was included in the final compromise bill text."

    Adding to the chaos, a drafting error brought the House Rules Committee into an emergency session late Wednesday night. One of the bills would have given Trump $125 billion for his border wall instead of the agreed upon $25 billion. Rules set up a procedural vote to fix it for Thursday morning that is likely to kick off the day of debate and fighting, the result of which is probably going to be abject failure.

    What a swath of conservative Republicans—who don't trust Ryan and think they're being cheated, as usual—want now is "to make sure the President is very visible in his support for both bills this week," as Rep. Mark Walker (R-NC) from the other conservative wing, the Republican Study Committee puts it. "They want to see it constantly as we move forward."

    Republican and moderate should never occur in the same sentence.
