If @DevalPatrick gets into this race it could change everything.

Great game. Key win for a gritty Longhorn team over a tough K-State.

Here's the reality: The FBI, CIA, NSA, DNI, DOJ and Congress say Russia hacked the Democrats in 2016. But the President believes a conspiracy theory that Ukraine did it. He has believed this for years. Top WH officials tried to convince him that it was Russia, to no avail.

On this Veterans’ Day I want to thank all my family and friends who have served in uniform - and the countless others who have served. All the military families as well. “Thank you” is too small a phrase, but I hope you know it is heartfelt. #VeteransDay

Every American who has ever put on this nation’s uniform in war or in peace has assumed risks and made sacrifices on our common behalf. Today we should join as one and thank them and their families for the debts we can never fully repay.

The epic rant from Rep Jim Himes about the both-sidesing of the Ukraine scandal is a seminal moment.

The whole episode shows how Trump's propaganda works: The goal is to get disinformation treated respectfully.

That's what happened here.

Mick Mulvaney won't comply with the subpoena to testify in Trump's impeachment inquiry, citing “absolute immunity”, an official said today

Their message is, “We Are Above The Law.”

Referee says he told Rep. Jim Jordan that Ohio State doctor performed sex act in shower

Doesn’t this suggest that perhaps Rep. Jordan is not as diligent about confronting wrongdoing as one might hope? Why then would GOP make him a point person on investigating presidential wrongdoing? Oh. Right. Never mind.

Trump says he’s thinking of attending Russia’s May Day parade. This is a celebration of Russian military power, which Putin is using to undermine US national security interests across the globe. Why attend? What benefit does Trump perceive to the US? To himself?

Trump is just sucking up to his boss.

Perhaps he should visit the grave of Capt. Humayun Khan, an American hero who sacrificed his life for our country in Iraq. You may recall how Jr’s dad heroically overcame bone spurs to stand up and bitterly attack Capt. Khan’s mom and dad.

A senior Trump aide describes ⁦@realDonaldTrump⁩ as your crazy uncle, ranting and running around the nursing home pantless. I’m old enough to remember when it was a scandal that ⁦@BarackObama⁩ wore a tan suit.

Defeating an incumbent governor is statistically the hardest thing to do in politics.

@DemGovs has now done it four times in the past four years.

"This is an exciting day for the Commonwealth of Virginia, after 26 years we are officially blue," Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam reacts to Tuesday night's historic win for Virginia Democrats

Thank you, @GovernorVA for your tireless work, especially your fearless advocacy of gun safety in the NRA’s home state. Special thanks to the thousands of volunteers who knocked doors, made calls, donated, marched, organized, registered, and voted. Virginia looks good in blue.

Dems won by organizing, mobilizing, inspiring their base AND knitting that base together with suburbanites AND campaigning hard in rural areas. Don’t take anyone for granted, don’t write anyone off. That’s how you win.
