So far, one deflect from Bacon so far.

Any guesses what the GoP will do now that the charges are unsealed?

It's way more serious than anyone could imagine. Do you think they will still defend him? Or are they going to start distancing from him?

How about the average voters who isn't a MAGA cultist?

Has there been a general election loser coming back and get the party nomination again?

In recent history, I can't recall any candidate who loses in the general election comes back and becomes the nominee again. Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, John McCain, Mitten all didn't seek another chance. Usually, the party that lost would do some soul searching for why they lost and find a new candidate.

Is TFG defying history again? I can't help but think it's a cult more and more each day. I guess the whole stolen election thing kept him as the center of attention and never gave a chance for people to do the soul searching needed. Other candidate usually stay quiet and let the party do it's thing.

New update of current status of outstanding House races from Dave Wasserman

New House math:

Dem called/likely (212), incl. #AKAL, #CA09, #CA21, #CA47, #CA49, #CO08, #ME02, #OR06
GOP called/likely (217): incl. #CA03, #CA27, #CA45, #CO03, #NY22, #OR05
Toss Ups (6): #AZ01, #AZ06, #CA13, #CA22, #CA41, #WA03

Dems need to run the table on Toss Ups for 218.

It's possible #CA13 (Modesto) and #WA03 (Vancouver) lean slightly towards Ds at this point, and #CA41 (Riverside County) might lean ever-so-slightly towards Rs.

But #AZ01 (Scottsdale), #AZ06 (Tucson) and #CA22 (Bakersfield) are the toughest to divine at the moment.

Ralston just called NV governor race for Joe Lombardo (R)...... so sad

Ralston predicted CCM for senate but Lombardo for governor before election day. He was right sadly if networks call this one.

New ballots from Clark County in NV with about 27.3k ballots EDIT: Laxalt leading 798 votes

17.2k (63%) for CCM and 9k for Laxalt.

Laxalt in the lead with 798 votes

But there is still 24k from Clark and 20k from Washoe which both favors CCM by 2:1. She will move into the lead by tonight. There is about 10-12k ballots from deep red district that will favor Laxalt.
