Yes, the Democrat Mary Peltola who won the special election and now won the general election for Alaska's single at large congressional seat. After ranked choice Peltola got 54.9% of the votes to Palin's 45.1%. Palin didn't even finish her one term as Alaska governor, she resigned and left for AZ, people probably didn't think she was serious this time.

And Lisa Murkowski won reelection over another Trump endorsed loser. So all eyes are on the GA senate run off race on December 6th.

CAs 13th District is the last House race to call, it covers 5 counties in the Central Valley.

So we can hope that Walker will lose and can go back home to his homestead in Southlake, Texas.

The Georgia runoff between Warnock and Walker is the last major race of the 2022 Midterms. Only four polls have been published and looking at the margin of error Warnock is ahead by less than 1% point. Turnout on Tuesday December 6th will be key for Democrats and Republicans. The Democrats will control the Senate for the next two years, this isn't critical for them.

The last US Senate seat should be decided today, Georgia's Warnock vs Walker race. The polling is in or very close to the margin of error, so it's another toss up election. The media have been talking about all the early voting which tends to favor Democrats, but Republicans tend to show up on election day to vote or drop off their completed ballots.

If (when) Warnock wins, the House will be neutered unless they work with the Dems. The Senate and the DOJ will take over throwing the orange spirochete into the dungeon as the traitor he is. Not the best, but not the worst. Work to get out the vote for 24 to keep the Senate and retake the House. We cannot spell schmutz with an R, but we should be able to.

CNN projects that Warnock won, he now has a full 6 year term. Another one of Trump's loser endorsements lost.

Fox Business host Stuart Varney blasted former President Trump, saying his time as the leader of the GOP is likely coming to an end and a loss by Herschel Walker in Tuesday’s Georgia Senate runoff election would essentially be Trump’s fault.

“There’s a lot at stake here, more than just a balance of power in the Senate. It’s about the state of the Republican Party and Trump’s role in it,” Varney said Tuesday of Georgia’s runoff contest. “He seems to be losing what used to be his iron grip on the GOP, and he still has a hard core of supporters who will follow them regardless, but many of the 74 million people who voted for him in 2020 have been turned off.”

Varney displayed on the screen for his audience on Fox Business a graphic that featured two dozen Republican candidates for office Trump backed in this year’s midterm elections who lost.

The midterm results have sparked a number of leading Republicans and conservative media critics, including prominent personalities on Fox News, to question Trump’s effectiveness as a political leader and float the idea of new leadership in the GOP.

Glad Warnock won. Suggest that Walker go back to Texas and if he wants to run for office, he should run in the 14th Congressional district in southeast Texas including Vidor TX the last of the sundown towns and probably still has a active chapter of the Klan.. It was Ron Paul's district.

An automatic recount confirmed Monday that Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert won her reelection bid against Democrat Adam Frisch. The nail-biter race showed the congresswoman's combative style is wearying voters in her conservative Colorado district.

Secretary of State Jena Griswold announced the results Monday evening. Frisch netted a total of four votes in the recount, far from enough to close a 500-plus vote gap with Boebert. An Aspen City Councilman, Frisch had already conceded the race last month after the first tally put him just under the state's margin for a mandatory recount.

Few expected the race to come down to such a narrow margin. In her first term in office, Boebert rocketed to national renown for her staunch support for former President Donald Trump, aggressive use of social media and willingness to engage in personal feuds with Democratic representatives.

Frisch ran against what her called her “ angertainment,” saying he wouldn't back U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as party leader and describing himself as a nonpartisan problem-solver. Few gave him much of a chance in the conservative 3rd Congressional District, which edges up against some famed, liberal ski towns but is dominated by vast, less glamorous and energy-rich swathes of rural Colorado.

Boebert has to run for reelection in 2024, another chance for Democrats to topple her.

Trump Hoarded Most Of The $147 Million In Small-Donor Money He Raised For Himself
WASHINGTON ― Just weeks after touting a new super PAC to help Republican candidates in the November midterms, Donald Trump wound up spending just a fraction of the $100 million he had available ― and hoarded the rest for his own 2024 presidential run.

The coup-attempting former president in October transferred $60 million from his Save America “leadership” PAC to his Make America Great Again Inc. super PAC, which was ostensibly created to boost GOP candidates in tight races. It collected another $9 million from an existing pro-Trump super PAC and $4 million from new contributions.

Of that $73 million total, though, only $15 million went toward electing Republicans in five Senate races, according to a HuffPost analysis of Federal Election Commission filings, with not a dime spent helping Herschel Walker in Georgia for his Dec. 6 runoff. A full $54 million remains available for the super PAC’s new stated goal, helping Trump win back the White House.

“It’s so obvious to the point of cliche at this point that Trump is in this for one person and one person alone, himself,” said Rory Cooper, once a top aide to former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. “He steals fundraising, picks lousy candidates, and is an anchor in competitive races, so one would wonder how much longer the party tolerates this loser nonsense.”

One thing to note is how close the recount was to the other count. This shows their voting process is pretty accurate, poking yet another hole in the Repub Big Lie.

I estimated and predicted 214 Democrats. We may reach that yet as one race is yet undecided.
Still cannot believe that brain-damaged psychotic married to a sex pervert, Boebert won, even by only 500 votes. I guess half the people in that district in Colorado are brain dead, as are the majority of people in MTG's district in Georgia. Here in NJ, the excellent Tom Malinowski lost his seat to a ReTrumplican. And, of course, the Dem Party in Albany fucked up super-bad, essentially costing the House all on their own.

When we look at the close House races that won them the House, the total number of votes was just under seven thousand votes. This is why it's important work towards taking back the House. It is totally doable. I saw that number yesterday on reddit an foolishly did not collect the link. Will post when I find it.
