    MI-11 is the badly gerrymandered district.

    The loser, Lena Epstein, was Trump's 2016 MI Campaign Chair.

    It is pretty awesome how the suburbs have shifted.

    Dems are doing ok everywhere but the Senate. +2 governors so far, +11 house with a forecasted +33-35, and lots of down ballot races.

    Pretty much. Covers a mix of inner and outer ring 'burbs, and straddles two counties.

    In relation to a Democratic House being something that Trump can run against, a Democratic House is something Democrats can run on. If the Senate and Trump go on blocking major bills like healthcare or tax reform, that becomes a huge stick.

    Well the Senate was a tough road to hoe. At least we wont have to pretend Collins and Murkowski might help the Dems out.

    Gotta keep winning down ballot.

    That will be key. What the Dems must do in the House is pass a lot of good legislation that people want and not worry about whether the President will sign it or the Senate will pass it. And then publish it all. Build a bank of legislation to run on in 2020.

    One precinct left to report, and my local state house rep should flip. Good.

    State Senate rep is going to survive. Boo urns.

    Yeah, I believe they said suburb, but not a Clinton one. Went for Trump in 2016.

    As I said, some suburbs who decided to take a gamble on Red Don are now re-thinking that decision.

    This! This times one thousand! They need to just make a backlog of "good for everyone, good for the Nation" bills that will die a swift death in the Senate (or Presidential Desk if it makes it that far) and then beat Trump voters over the head with them starting in 2019.
