    She got almost 20% of the vote, and had more total votes than the top two Republican candidates. That's not a bad showing.

    Steny has plenty of years left, and I don't think she is going to make much headway in a national election while he's around. Maybe she gets involved at the state level after this and waits it out.

    Just reading about her story, even if I don't agree with a lot of her platform, it is nice to read about younger people being inspired to politics.

    Hoyer absolutely should go, but unfortunately he never has to travel to keep in touch with his district since itís right next to DC. Thatís a built-in advantage for him.

    McConnell is probably not going to lose unless Trumpís approval is below 35 by November. Booker has a better shot though. Heís a good candidate.

    Exactly. And he graduated from Suitland High, which is as close to DC as you can get, so he's exceptionally local. He gets a lot of support from Republicans for keeping defense jobs in the area too.

    Seems like you're one of the hard to find reasonable republicans since Trump took over. Nice to see.

    I've talked to many. Probably only met 3 or 4 out of about 25.

    The Maine Senatorial election should be a good one to watch.

    The Democratic primary was postponed to July 14, but the presumptive nominee will be Sara Gideon, currently the Speaker of the Maine House of Representatives and a former advertising executive from Freeport. Gideon appears to be a fairly mainstream left of center Democrat (though she currently claims she will accept no PAC donations), and she is almost assured of beating Betsy Sweet, a much more progressive candidate in the Democratic primary.

    Recent polling shows Gideon with an advantage over Republican incumbent Susan Collins (2.5%).

    I'm more in the middle. Economically, I am very Republican. For many social issues, I tend to lean left of center except for a handful, due to family experiences and my Catholic faith. Until this election cycle, I was a registered Democrat, but since those elections are already decided in Maryland, I changed to Republican because I have a better chance to influence the direction of that vote at least in the primary.

    The Democrats that won seats from Republicans were those that tried to run on being basically "centrist", not the Cortez and Omar types. Now its been two years later. The Democrats haven't been turned back to the middle, they've become further left. The "Woke" have taken over.. I'm pretty sure you're going to see a red tidal wave come November.

    As a Democrat, I really care about what you, a right-winger, has to say about the nature of the Democratic party.

    Just be glad it's significantly further to the right than the left party in any other country you'd ever consider living in.

    Conservative policy has long been less popular than liberal policy. They're holding on by a fine string, held up by gerrymandering, voter suppression and an insanely undemocratic court system. Eventually it will crumble.

    Yeah, but itís starting to turn left though slowly. I say in 10-15 years you may well see a Bernie type candidate get elected.

    Yes, because Trumpism is a growing brand

    With climate change, social problems, and the threat of a major economic downturn coming, it may be too late by then.
