I recall back in May that Michael Hein said he would announce by the end of July if he runs aganist Faso. Anyone got updates on that?

In AZ Senate, Jeff Flake is in a losing position. If Gabby Giffords health can handle it, she'd crush him brutally. He has an 18% approval rating. It's not even a toss up at this point.
flake is done

LOL

Giffords will never run for anything ever again.
eh. She's a natural politician. You can't keep them out of the arena for long. Synema or Janet Napolitano are solid if you're right

Giffords is physically incapable of running a campaign, and most likely not mentally fit to serve. I don't think you grasp how badly she was injured.

She literally got shot in the brain and has difficulty stringing together thoughts and speaking. In another world where she was never shot or survived the shooting unscathed, maybe. But we don't live in that world.

She's made MASSIVE progress since the shooting. She learned how to talk in a couple of years, I'm not saying she WILL be up for it, I'm saying let's see where she's at decision time.

Bruh the woman got shot in the head. I'm happy she's made the progress she has but there are better options for Dems than her given the realities.

He's not a politician and has never been a candidate, so tbd. But his top issue will be health care, followed by campaign finance reform, which is much better than Quist's public lands obsession. Still, who knows how well he'll fundraise and campaign.

I have heard whispers about Sinema announcing a run vs Flake within the next few weeks, and Greg Stanton then announcing a bid for Kyrsten Sinema's current seat.

Not in Montana, it isn't. And Quist was very adamant about health care.

Boyda won this seat in 2006 and I think Davis is a much stronger candidate. Plus it's an open seat, which bodes well.

Also I think Davis won this district in 2014 gubernatorial, or at least was very close. Especially considering that it's Brownback's home district.

I dunno. I don't have an opinion one way or another, but if too many say that, then Democrats win a narrow majority and Pelosi needs their votes to become Speaker, you're looking at maybe Paul Ryan getting the most votes to become Speaker and we're all screwed again.

If there's that many votes to threaten Paul Ryan being speaker then former Pelosi voters should just jump ship. This is where having a good whip count would help a lot.

I meant it in the sense that big donors and the DCCC won't dump money into this race if Davis is against the leadership,which will make his victory harder.
