Sharice Davids wins in KS 03.

Why the lag in Vox's totals?

Where's Steve Kornacki when you need him?

4. Emily's List is a powerful voice.

Vox is still reporting Welder ahead with 63% in. Did they all fall asleep? Send in Kornacki to jolt them awake.

33. Vox is usually the more reliable and quickest with election returns.

Odd that they were so far behind. They finally updated shortly after 11 AM Eastern with the final result. She won by 3.41%, 2088 votes.

8. Sharice had her Red, White, and BLUE dress on last night!


Democratic congressional candidate Sharice Davids spoke to supporters Tuesday night at Breitís Stein and Deli in Kansas City, Kan. Luke Harbur -

Kansas Dems choose Sharice Davids to challenge Rep. Kevin Yoder for seat in Congress

snip//

Sharice Davids could make history in November after Kansas Democrats selected the Johnson County attorney as their nominee for a race that could help decide control of the U.S. House.

Davids, the winner of a six-way primary race, would be the first Native American woman elected to Congress if she prevails over U.S. Rep. Kevin Yoder, the incumbent Republican from Overland Park, in the general election.

20. I'm honestly surprised. I did not think Davids would be able to pull it off.

I really thought Niermann or Welder would do it, based on funding. Davids didn't have near the money these two did, but had endorsement from Emily's list.

The Republican guy, Yoder, sure has lots of money in his 'war' chest, though, so it's going to be a tough fight for Davids.

Well...even if Yoder does have a lot of money, we have a lot of votes, if we cast them.

Each and every vote counts. Don't forget that.

24. And some pundits at the NYT still don't get it.

"The activist wing of the Democratic Party mobilized for several of the nightís biggest races, trying to replicate the insurgent victory of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in New York earlier this summer ó and for the most part falling short."


The activist wing of the Democratic Party won last night.

Democratic Socialists, Justice Democrats, Brand New Congress, and Our Revolution lost. Democratic voters voters showed up, so the troubling "low turnout strategy" didn't play out.

The NYT needs to find a new story line, tweak its increasingly absurd narrative, and stop trying to stoke division in the hopes of generating revenue.

get their little Orwellian labels and stick with them.. no matter how much Events change.

"Activist wing".. lol GMAB.. Sharice Davids, Gretchen Whitmer, and William Lacy Clay and their Supporters were pretty darn Active.. getting All those Voters to the polls for THEMSELVES!!

I call them LAZY Good for Nothings.

Way Short! And, I couldn't be Happier!

And, Hayes having El Sayed on the night before the election didn't help that much?

It was a nice night. Actually winning Ohio-12 would have been nice, but that job is only for a couple of weeks before the rematch. I sense a change in the air. The Democratic party is putting forth some great candidates who are our own. And Republicans are being arrested for insider trading.
