Henry Cuellar-Jessica Cisneros Texas Primary Too GOTDAMN Close To Call!

It's a nail-biter!

The Democratic primary between Rep. Henry Cuellar and progressive challenger Jessica Cisneros is incredibly close, and almost certainly headed to a recount before an official result. With 100 percent of the votes counted, Cuellar, the sole remaining House Democrat who opposes abortion rights, led Cisneros by just 177 votes by midnight. Cuellar declared victory, but Cisneros has not yet conceded. Shortly after Cuellar's claim of victory, Cisneros tweeted last night, "This election is still too close to call, and we are still waiting for every ballot and eligible vote to be counted." She added, "This fight isn't over. It was a blessed 29th birthday." [Heart Emoji] Twenty-nine? Even if she ends up not winning this time, we haven't seen the last of Jessica Cisneros.

And as the Texas Tribune points out, it could be a few days before the race is finally decided. The gap is close enough that Cisneros can ask for a recount, and domestic mail-in ballots that were postmarked by Election Day can still be counted if they arrive at county elections offices by 5 p.m. today. What with it being Texas, we wouldn't be the least bit surprised to learn that in the event of a tie, the race might be decided by armadillos somehow.

Republicans Know How To Stop School Gun Massacres: More Guns

They actively make the world a worse place.

A piece of shit with a gun murdered 19 children and two teachers Tuesday at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. Whenever there’s a mass shooting, no matter how horrific, Republicans immediately suggest more guns as a solution. This makes about as much sense as a drunk driver wrapping his car around a tree, killing everyone inside, and declaring, “God, I need a drink.” However, Republicans are openly in bed with the gun lobby, whose sole purpose is to sell more guns. Mass shootings are good business for the death machine industry.

CNN reported after last year’s back-to-back mass shootings:

“When you hear more calls for firearm restrictions, we have observed gun sale increases primarily from people buying before they’re not able to,” said Rob Southwick, founder of the market research firm Southwick Associates.

No serious gun legislation has passed in decades — quite the opposite in fact. Texas, where the latest massacre took place, has loosened its gun restrictions over the past few years. Republicans promoted and passed laws that let citizens carry guns without a permit.

Oregon Gains Better Class Of Democrat With Jamie McLeod-Skinner

A less than fond farewell to Kurt Schrader.

It’s official … kinda. Rep. Kurt Schrader from Oregon has lost his Democratic primary race against challenger Jamie McLeod-Skinner. The votes still aren’t fully counted, but Cook Political Report’s Dave Wasserman finally saw enough Tuesday morning:


Twitter


Schrader is the reduced-for-quick-donor-sale Joe Manchin who, along with the so-called “unbreakable nine,” actively sabotaged President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better bill. Biden still endorsed Schrader’s reelection in April, stating, "We don’t always agree, but when it has mattered most, Kurt has been there for me.” This was a weird way of suggesting that Build Back Better — the core of his domestic agenda — didn’t matter the most. But maybe Schrader was always good for giving Biden a ride to the airport.

You’ll recall that the Oregon primary elections were May 17, a week ago, but Clackamas County fucked up big time: Smudged, blurry bar codes left as many as 60,000 ballots unreadable by vote-counting machines. That’s more than half of the county’s total ballots. Each voter’s selections had to be hand-transferred to a new ballot, and this artisanal process moved slower than Uncle Joe at Petticoat Junction. By Friday, just 23,000 ballots had been tallied. At this rate, they risk missing the June 13 deadline.

Georgia Primary: Trump-Backed David Perdue Waves White Hood In Flawless Defeat Against Brian Kemp

Trump’s vendetta tour crashes and burns.

Donald Trump did not have a great night in Georgia.

His hand-picked instrument for petty revenge, David Perdue, was absolutely crushed in the GOP primary against incumbent Gov. Brian Kemp, whom Trump loathes. The Democratic primary for governor was more competitive and Stacey Abrams ran unopposed. The polls had barely closed before Dave Wasserman at Cook Political Report had seen enough.


Twitter


This was Perdue's second-annual election loss. The former senator lost the 2021 Georgia runoff to Jon Ossoff but could’ve kept his dignity. Instead, he agreed to help Trump unseat Kemp and GOP voters soundly rejected him. Kemp swept every county and took 73.7 percent of the vote. Perdue limped home with a pathetic 21.8 percent, worse than anyone predicted.

Last week, Perdue “guaran-damn-teed” he wasn’t losing by 30 points, as final polls indicated, and he was right. He lost by 50. Perdue closed out his offensive, racist campaign with a racist attack against Stacey Abrams, who he claimed “demeaned her own race.” His public humiliation was a joy to witness.
