Biden considering Sen. Angus King for DNI Chief

I don't like Biden plucking any senators at all, but Maine does have a Democratic governor. But not sure I'm trusting special elections right now and Maine isn't exactly the most trustworthy state.

The ONLY way this makes sense to me is if Sen. King has maybe relayed to Biden that he doesn't plan on running for re-election, so it'll be easier for the Dems to run with a Dem already in the seat, rather than a full out open seat.

What's Biden going to do about Joe Manchin in a 50/50 Senate?

Assuming we win the GA runoffs. Biden's back-slapping, good ol' boy politicking will have to pay in spades. Manchin will be the king maker in the Senate and Joe will need to shower him with praise, a few beers, and overnights at the White House Talk about how great and beautiful the state of West Virginia is. Give him anything he wants as far as federal dollars. Get Jill to befriend his wife. I think that should probably keep him on board for most stuff, outside of climate change related bills.

It's now clear how we win elections...a moderate face with left policies

And that's how Biden has been able to pull thing off. I don't foresee in the future that our party will nominate anyone that calls themselves a Democratic socialist. They may be able to drum up big support in NYC, LA, Seattle, etc, but that's not going to win 270 EV's.

It's pretty obvious that we have to have a candidate that appeals to the Rust Belt states and that also includes drumming up African American voters in their urban cores. Also we need to do better with Latinos and concentrate more on the Latinos in the southwest. Fuck Florida. That's our path from here on out. But any candidate from here on out, HAS to win surburbia too and revolutionary/socialist language won't cut it. Biden wouldn't have won MI and PA without the suburbs breaking for him.

I haven't slept much in 3 days

Please someone tell me this ends tonight? I can't take anymore. Does anyone know if PA will drop tonight? I thought they would, but it's already 8:30pm and nothing is moving.

**Fox News preparing to call it for Biden tonight**

Just saw this on TPM. Fox News is prepping to call NV for Biden should it go like they expect. They have already called AZ for Biden. They will be the first network to declare Joseph R. Biden the 46th President of the United States!

Can someone tell me about GA?

I don't hear any talk about it. Can Biden win it or not?

Polling seems to work when Trump isn't on the ballot

Which tells me either there is some shady shit going on, or Trump is such a cult figure that he's getting all the white trash that normally wouldn't vote to come out in droves cause he's "one of them." However, that means all those voters that came out for Trump are NOT Republicans. They don't care about the Republican party. They only care about Trump. So when his orange ass is no longer on the ballot, things may return to 'normal' as far as polling, turnout, etc.

***GOP Rep. Andy Barr in trouble in KY-06!!!!***

38% of the vote in and he's down 58-41% to Josh Hicks.

I actually tweeted the Cook Political Report and Dave Wasserman that they are discounting KY-06. This is a swing district and Josh Hicks ran an impeccable campaign here. He's like the Jon Tester of Kentucky. In their defense, this district was never polled, but I knew Barr was in trouble. Cook had this a Safe (R) seat.

This is the same district that McGrath lost in 2018.

Rep. James Clyburn could become a national hero Wednesday

Let's take a moment to thank him! He may have single-handedly saved both our party and our country with his endorsement of Biden. Without it, Biden would likely not be the nominee today.

There is no doubt in my mind that Joe Biden was the best choice to be the nominee of this party in 2020. Whether Biden has a 'narrow' win or wins in a landslide, I have no regrets. Biden has given us the best chance to win up and down the ballot. James Clyburn knew this way ahead of time and endorsed Biden. If we can pull of a trifecta and win control of the entire government, Clyburn will go down with the likes of John Lewis as a true American hero and patriot...saving this country from the depth and despair of Trump.

Why is Trump in Georgia??

Cause he knows he's going to fucking lose the state. He knows he's toast. There's something afoot in Georgia. I think it's highly possibly Georgia and NC will get called before Florida. For all the panicking about Pennsylvania, in the end, it won't even matter.
