Question for you Marylanders re: 1st Congressional District

It's looking like the Dems are gonna run away with the governor's race and other statewide contests in the midterms. What do you think the chances are of U.S. Rep. Andrew Harris getting swept out of office on Nov. 8th?

This is THE picture for Dems to use to demonstrate the abject cruelty of Ron DeSantis.

Look at this little boy, sleeping in his motherís arms... the tiny hand... the shoeless little foot... the long dark eyelashes...
To Ron Desantis, this toddler is just a piece of subhuman garbage to be shuffled around and used as a prop in the governor's attempt to become dictator of the USA.

Update to and request re: "Stick Up for Your Rights" Sticky Note Pro-Choice Messaging Campaign

I've been posting this image online to get as many eyes on it as possible in the hopes that more and more people will participate in and share the idea (and image). I've gotten some good feedback and several people saying they're on board and have started posting public messages, which is encouraging.

Please spread it around if you like it!

Also, if you or someone you know is connected to a pro-choice/Democratic/women's/civil rights organization or campaign and like this idea, are technologically astute, and have a bit of PR/marketing/social media savvy, I'd love it if you or they would run with the concept and publicize it. One idea is to have a portion of a website dedicated to photos of these do-it-yourself messages. The organization could get people to send in photos of their own posted messages or messages that they've spotted, then post them on a website with a general description of the location, e.g.: "restroom, O'Hare Airport, Chicago," or whatever. I think people would really enjoy participating in something like that, and hopefully it could go viral.

Thank you all! Let's all keep doing what we can through November 8!

Here's an easy and (almost) free way to spread our message and accelerate blue momentum...

I hatched this idea the day after Dobbs came down. It's a simple grassroots activism tactic that almost anyone can do. And it reaches all sorts of people, including those who don't normally follow politics and elections.

It's simple: Carry a pen and sticky notes or mailing labels with you and write messages encouraging people to save their rights by voting blue in the midterms (November 8th, although a lot of people vote much earlier). Plaster your notes far and wide in public places. My friends and I particularly like to put them up in public restroom stalls--you reach a captive audience, after all.

Yes these notes are easily removed (we don't want any property damage), but they're also easily replaced.

If you like the idea, please participate in the note writing and also spread the word by sharing the image on social media and other relevant places online.

Thank You! And Go Team Blue!

On edit: Also, if any person or organization out there likes this idea, is technologically astute, and has a bit of PR/marketing/social media savvy, I'd love it if you would run with the concept. One idea is to get people to send in photos of their own posted messages or messages that they've spotted, then post them on a website with a general description of the location, e.g.: "restroom, O'Hare Airport, Chicago," or whatever.

Encouraging Sign: Democratic Turnout Surging in Kansas Early Voting

The intensity is driven by the state referendum on abortion. A "No" vote is a pro-choice vote.

Has anyone heard anything lately about Putin's funding of his GOP puppets?

I'm hoping the Ukraine invasion has slowed the flow of fascist-to-fascist rubles. *fingers crossed*
