I'm going to say something you might not have heard from many Democrats in the past few months: I'm feeling good.
Recently, while I watched the Kansas House election, I was reminded of just how fired up Democrats are at this point in time. In a state that President Trump overwhelmingly won (by 31 points), I watched as James Thompson -- a populist Democrat -- organized a movement to take back his state. In the end, the Republican candidate squeaked by only after everyone from Donald Trump to Mike Pence and Ted Cruz had to help campaign.
This is huge. We can't ignore it.
Democrats are, in the words of Brooklyn resident Beyoncé, getting in formation. We are pushing back and we have the GOP back on their heels. We are showing our fight -- and I don't expect it to stop. But the momentum is only going to keep going if every single one of us commits to seeing our fight through every single battle. That's why I'm asking you to support these three Democratic senators who will be defending their seats in 2018. Let's make sure we lock down their seats while we have our eyes on the future.
Donate to Senator Tammy Baldwin from Wisconsin, Senator Tim Kaine from Virginia, and Senator Bill Nelson from Florida today!
We have so much momentum, Corey, and we can't lose it before we really start winning. Kansas isn't the only fight that's giving me hope -- the Georgia special House election is next week, and a Democrat is pulling ahead as Republicans get more and more desperate. And, in Delaware, we saw a Democrat win a tight race in their special elections.
And, with Tammy's, Tim's and Bill's seats secured, I know we're going to be moving forward at an even quicker pace. I have no doubt in my mind: If we keep harnessing our anger and determination, we will win more and more in the coming years.
Show Republicans we'll keep winning: Donate to Tammy, Tim, and Bill for their 2018 races!
I have to say it -- I'm truly excited for what we'll accomplish together.
Sincerely,Of course, I noticed three things:
There was actually another Washington Post-ABC News poll that tested views of what the United States should do in response to Syria using chemical weapons. It came in December 2012 — before the 2013 chemical weapons attack. It was a hypothetical.
The question: “What if the Syrian government uses chemical weapons against its people? In that case would you support or oppose U.S. military involvement in Syria?”
In response to this question, fully 67 percent of Republicans said they would support military involvement.
“We were really trying to make fun of what was going on [last season] but we couldn’t keep up. What was actually happening was way funnier than anything we could come up with. So we decided to just back off and let [politicians] do their comedy and we’ll do ours.”
