We started impeaching Trump and Warren rose, then we won the KY governor's race and total control of the Virginia government. The woman who flipped Trump the bird and got fired, won.
We are standing up for what we believe in and we're winning.https://t.co/enrqylj359

Briskman lost her job over that photo in 2017.
“Two years ago I was fired for standing up to the backwards agenda of Donald Trump," she told me tonight. "But now my neighbors in Algonkian District have backed me up and rejected the Trump agenda." https://t.co/8ruEybq4mg

RT @TomJackmanWP: Loudoun County has gone from electing Eugene Delgaudio, a leader in nation's anti-gay rights movement, to @JuliBriskman, who flipped off Trump outside his golf course, in 8 years. That's the story of No. Va.'s seismic political shift to the left. #StateofNoVa

One, big important point about the Kentucky and Virginia results: Impeachment did not turn out to be the issue Republicans thought it would be to fire up conservatives in rural areas. Democrats, on the other hand, are clearly still fired up.

Mitch is going to be pinned down and won’t spread any money around to vulnerable colleagues- that’s a win for the DSCC.
