iPhone : Here's 1,500 words on the "serious problem" faced by a New York State court which is trying to reach a result in the #NY22 congressional race. Democrat Anthony Brindisi took a 13-vote lead today. #StickyGate

I detail the latest for WBNG 12 News. ⬇️…

iPhone : NEW: Rudy Giuliani will probably not be disbarred for his work on Trump's failing election lawsuits, experts tell me.

But he could have a problem when it comes to his Ukraine work.…

iPhone : With its votes certified, Biden won Minnesota by just over 7%; the same overall result that Mike Dukakis got in 1988. The farm crisis helped Dukakis in Greater MN, which was lighter red. MN-8 is now an R-leaning district. But MN-4 (St. Paul) & MN-5 (Minneapolis) are darker blue.

iPhone : Ilhan Omar underperformed Biden by more than maybe any other Democratic candidate. I talked to a bunch of smart people about why

Some major reasons:
- a pro-weed third party siphoning votes
- a super well-funded GOP opponent
- a polarizing profile…

iPhone : Fact: A bi-partisan group of PA legislators passed #act77 in the fall of 2019 & included an expansion #votebymail. Republicans supported this bill & negotiated to eliminate straight-ticket voting in PA bc they thought Trump would hurt them at the top of the ticket. #Election2020

iPhone : Joe Biden handily carried Washington state this year. He largely won back third party voters that defected in 2016. Notably, he carried the traditionally swingy 8th District by 6.5% and it only likely to get bluer in redistricting.

Twitter Web App : Her report: "I understand that prison is supposed to be all about having no rights and being forced to settle for less, but when I'm being casually told that granola bars are being replaced with powdered donuts, it's extra hard to maintain hope and stay positive."…

Twitter Web App : i guess it depends on how many pieces it was shattered into and how much super glue is in the house…

Twitter Web App : Alan Dershowitz is "considering seeking clemency for two of his clients — a New Jersey man serving more than 20 years for defrauding investors, and a billionaire businessman convicted in what’s been called “one of North Carolina’s worst government corruption scandals.”…

iPhone : There have been only 3 federal elections in the last 100 years decided by fewer than 20 votes: #NHsen in 1974 (2 votes), #IN08 in 1984 (4), and #NY21 in 1924 (10).

We could get TWO such races this year in #IA02 and #NY22.

iPhone : BREAKING: sources on both Dem & GOP sides confirm that the final counts submitted by all 8 counties in #NY22 to NY Supreme Court Justice Scott DelConte will show Rep. Anthony Brindisi (D) *ahead* of Claudia Tenney (R) by either 12 or 13 votes. Wow.

iPhone : A lot of choices that state governments are making about Covid-19 restrictions are illogical, not supported by science, and undermine actual prevention efforts.…
