Mostly what we need is for our folks who generally sit out mid-terms not to sit out this mid-term.
The daily outrages, corruption, and incompetence just might impel them to show up.
But there’s something else this year, too: our candidates.
We have great ones!
Like these DCCC “red-to-blue” Congressional challengers.
And Beto O’Rourke to knock off Ted Cruz!
And Stacey Abrams to govern Georgia!
And so many others.
But if we finally do get the kind of mid-term turn-out we always should (because Democratic economic policies are always better for the bottom 99% than Republican economic policies), who knows how deep the change could go?
Here’s a guy who could turn North Dakota blue even though his state is “R+16.” He’s for taking Medicaid expansion money; she voted against it. He’s for family farmers; she’s for corporate farmers. He opposes Trump’s trade war; she supports it. (And he captained the University of North Dakota football team and plays well with Republican legislators. Perfect!)
Here’s a pistol-packing Latina so different from the current Texas governor — well, watch her two-minute video and tell me if you don’t think she’s better positioned to address the kitchen-table problems most Texans face.
And it’s not just traditional Democratic voters who may vote D this November.
Independents lean our way.
And Republicans may heed the pleas of conservatives like Max Boot (“I want Democrats to take over“) . . . George Will (“Vote against the GOP this November“) . . . and Rich Barlow (“I’m a Republican, but I’ll vote Democratic“).
And John Zeigler (“I have never voted for a Democrat for a federal or state office in my life. This year, much to my amazement and disappointment, not only will I likely be voting for Democrats at that level, I will actually be rooting for Democrats to win.)
No need to choose: sign up with all three.

Quote of the Day
In 1992, more was spent on legal fees in California [$16.3 billion] than on auto repairs, funerals, tanning salons, one-hour photo finishing, videotape rentals, detectives and armored car guards, bug exterminators, laundry, haircuts, day care, shoe repairs and septic tank cleaning combined.~Census Bureau survey, as reported in the LA Times
