Still, she persisted.


Axios morning email thingie:

At least five men will definitely be replaced in Washington by women after last night’s primaries, Axios’ Alexi McCammond reports:

There are now at least 199 women who have won their primaries for U.S. House in 2018.

Why it matters: Midterms are typically a referendum on the president, but 2018 is showing over and over again that Americans want more women in elected office during the Trump era.

The men taken out by women include:

Former Democratic Sen. Al Franken, who was already replaced by a woman in the interim. Now, both the Democratic and Republican slots on the general election ballot for the remainder of his term are filled by women.

Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison will definitely be replaced by a woman in Minnesota — two women advanced to the general election for his congressional seat.

GOP Rep. Mark Sanford lost his June primary for re-election to Katie Arrington in South Carolina.

Democratic Rep. Joe Crowley lost his primary bid in New York for re-election to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

GOP Rep. Tom Price was replaced by Karen Handel after the special election for Georgia’s 6th district, which was left open once Price left to work in the Trump administration.

Be smart: Congress is going to look a lot different in January.

P.S. Minneapolis Star Tribune: Hennepin County commissioner “Jeff Johnson shocked the Minnesota political world [by winning] the Republican primary for governor [53%-44%]… [derailing] former Gov. Tim Pawlenty’s bid to win back his old job. Pawlenty had been widely seen as the front-runner.”

Seriously, add Omarosa to this list, even though she is not running for office, she’s being very effective taking down the Orange Menace. Women are pissed off and they are kicking asses and taking names.

  2. Be careful what you ask for B(4).

    We’ve had a number of women in office here in theTSKoAz. Jan ‘pokey finger, headless bodies’ Brewer, Khemtrails Kelly Ward, Martha “Let’s steal people’s healthcare” Mcsally (also Martha “too chickenshit to actually face her constituents” McSally.)

    Even Janet Napolitano, who was a good governor, but who resigned to take over the DHS for Obama, left us with a GOP lege and Jan Brewer in charge.

    Thanks Obama!

      Just pull the urinals out of the men’s room and make them walk down two floors.

      (The men, that it. not the urinals.)
