It was a wave. Not a tsunami as I had hoped and predicted, but it had to be a wave to overcome the structural disadvantages built into a gerrymandered map.

Thank fuck the Dems have prevailed in the House, and despite Republican gains in the Senate, those won't amount to much. They'll continue to appoint ideologue judges, but that's about it -- unless they get the chance to appoint another SCOTUS seat. The Senate was always a heavy lift for Dems in 2018.

Re-taking the House for Dems is huge. Guardrails at last.

Oh, and I hate Florida.

And I feel like I can take an unfettered breath for the first time in 2 years.
