Marc Elias was the head of the Clinton Victory Counsel program

I just signed up for this program. I put a ton of time in for the Clinton volunteer legal team and I am glad to donate my time as a lawyer for good causes


Supreme Court wont review decision that found N.C. voting law discriminates against African America

Source: Washington Post

The Supreme Court will not review a decision that found North Carolina’s 2013 voting law discriminated against African American voters, the justices said Monday.

A unanimous panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit had found in 2016 that North Carolina legislators had acted “with almost surgical precision” to blunt the influence of African American voters.

And last summer the Supreme Court had divided evenly on whether the law could be used in last fall’s election while the appeals continued.

But the election resulted in a new Democratic governor and a Democratic attorney general, and they had told the court they did not want to defend the law enacted by the state’s Republican-controlled legislature. The Republicans had asked to continue the appeal.

TX CD7 town hall-Culbertson

There was a town hall in CD 7 that had a great turnout. They were checking Ids and limiting participation to voters in the district but there was still a great turnout. These tweets make me smile





Debby Kerner is one of four good democrats running to replace Culbertson


Debby Kerner is on the Texas Democratic Party executive committee.

Does anyone else miss President Obama doing his NCAA brackets???

I always enjoyed President Obama doing his NCAA bracket and would compare my bracket to his. It was nice to have a POTUS who had real outside interests and could relate to sports fans. Even though he was very busy and actually working as POTUS, it was clear that President Obama is a sports fan and knew basketball

The current idiot occupying the White House would not be able to complete a bracket due to his short attention span and the fact that he gets all of his news from Fox

I miss President Obama.

Project LIFT training by Texas Democratic Party for potential candidates for local races

I am not running but I was a co-host (brought subway sandwiches and cookies) for a training session by project LIFT held by the Texas Democratic Party. This event was to train candidates to run in local races. It was an amazing event. We have 50 candidates or potential candidates there being trained to run in state and local races. We have at least three people running for Texas CD 7 (John Culbertson) which is a race that is being targeted by the DCCC. One impressive young man was there who plans to run for this race in 2018. The DCCC already has a person on the ground working in CD 7. There are also at least three people running against Pete Olson in CD 22. We have people who are going to contest GOP state representatives who have not been contested in a long while.

There was a wide diversity of candidates. We has some great speakers. We had Anne Sung who won a tight race for Houston Independent School Board by 33 votes and one of the candidates who won in the City of Pasadena city council race. Pasadena just lost a major redistricting case and this speaker was one of the plaintiffs in the case that got Pasadena bailed in under Section 3 of the Voting Rights Act for gerrymandering.

I am seeing a great deal of excitement on the ground. More importantly all of the subway sandwiches that I bought and all of the cookies were gone by the end of the event.
