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.

I am going to start calling him "TIFG"

Washoe County tweeted that votes are anticipated to be posted around 7:30

Hi, fella! Washoe votes are anticipated to be posted around 7:30 this evening.


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 called NV SOS for democrat Cisco Aguilar and Treasurer for democrat Zach Conine



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.



New summary of votes remaining in NV from Clark County elections department

50,030 mail ballots to be count
15,900 will be tabulated today
34,130 are at tray inspection and counting board (not all will be counted today)

Not included above
9,659 ballots to cure
5,555 provisional ballots


EDIT: Assuming we get 60k votes from Clark and CCM gets 60% of the votes, she will get 12,000 votes more than Laxalt. It looks like it will be close but it's very possible that CCM will get 65+% and have a much higher lead than this.

There is also about 20k votes from Washoe which came in 60%+ for CCM yesterday.

Conclusion, I think there is more than enough votes for CCM to win.

LOL.... Republicans are so angry with Wasserman for calling AZ for Kelly last night

that he was forced to post a disclaimer.

I've seen enough: Sen. Mark Kelly (D) wins reelection in #AZSEN, defeating Blake Masters (R).


Oh no... Wasserman just said it's hard to see Boebert losing with new votes that came in

extending her lead to 1136. He is not calling the race yet but well....

Now that #CO03 Rep. Lauren Boebert (R) has expanded her lead over Adam Frisch (D) to 1,136 votes with additional ballots counted in blue-leaning Pueblo County, much tougher to see her losing.
