I have no idea. Her district is safely blue, but whether she keeps the seat depends on a myriad of things. She won her primary because of low turnout. If her district has low turnout in the next election or she impresses those who didn't turn out then to vote for her the second time around, she'll be fine. If she pisses them off, though, there could be a different outcome.

Do you expect that she will be primaried by somebody else? Her district has been blue as far back as I could trace. Wikipedia listings cut off before I could find the first Republican to win her district. I think she's going to be here for a long time and that is one of the few rays of sunshine on these stormy days.

Famous (almost) last words as recounted by Lawrence O'Donnell on MSNBC:

"I am not a crook." - Richard Nixon

"I never had sex with that woman." - Bill Clinton

"I never worked for Russia." - Donald Trump

When even Fox News is willing to discuss President Trump as someone who "committed a felony" (as Judge Napolitano did recently) and pushing back on some of Trump's wall rhetoric, I think it's safe to say that the people who still support this man has shrunk to a very, very small group. Yet he maintains an overall approval rating around 40%. I find that rather shocking.

It's treason in plain sight.

Here's the NYT article on the FBI investigation into Manchurian Candidate Trump:

Even after everything, "[The FBI] grew increasingly concerned about whether the president's actions constituted anti-American activity" is still a pretty mind-blowing sentence to read.

Democrats shift toward impact on jobs as climate change moves to front of 2020 agenda:

". . . The proposal . . . calls for a special committee in the House to draft a plan by 2020 for a historic multitrillion-dollar federal spending and loan program with the goal of building a '100 percent greenhouse gas neutral power generation system' and providing millions of jobs in low-income areas."

I fucking love Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Just... everything.
