    Been noticing this a decent amount recently with former teachers misrepresenting their current occupation. Im not a fan.

    MTG's district is one of the reddest Congressional seats in America - it's basically 75% red. The only way MTG loses her seat is if a Republican primaries her and wins that.

    Yeah, it's great to see her getting some opposition on her home turf, but she's not losing in that district, she will likely win without breaking a sweat. It's similar to a Democrat trying to seriously challenge Virginia Foxx here in NC - it would be fun to see, but she'd win in a walk given the demographics of her district.

    2022 is going to be such a critical election. If Democrats don't win and maintain the house and expand in the Senate, based on all of the election law changes Republican states are proposing, it may be a while before Democrats can win a majority again.

    This article is really good explaining why it is so important to pass voting rights protections because the supreme court is basically going to let states pass any restriction they want. Disparate impact seems to not matter, only if the law literally says "blacks can't do x" is it to be considered racially discriminatory.

    That's a shock, but he'll be replaced by a Republican.

    Would be interesting to know if trump and all that comes with him has caused republicans to just give up and retire out of... disgust/frustration/exhaustion of dealing with the new GQP base. Clearly most did not speak up when they could and actually knew what they were doing an why so I'm not absolving them. Just wondering how much that played into decisions. It also likely means the primaries for these seats will likely be a race to out trump each other.

    One of that gun toting St. Louis couple could run and would probably win if they had Trump's blessing.

    Is there anyone other than Tim Ryan to run in Ohio for Senate?

Democrats now seem to have no shot at winning in states like Missouri, and the people that are running seem to be ever more extreme and to the right compared to their predecessors. If Josh Hawley is any sign, Blunt's replacement will likely be a definite Qanon conspiracy touting fanatic.
