With Senate roll calls finished until November, worth noting that @POTUS has won confirmation of a HISTORIC total of 84 judicial nominations already... ... including more black women on the Court of Appeals than all 45 prior Presidents COMBINED

Love that Chuck Schumer
Interesting tidbit: This was the seventh circuit court nominee confirmed in September, which means Senate Dems doubled circuit confirmations for the year in a single month.

People are real mad about the poll showing people want Vice President Kamala Harris to be President in the unlikely event POTUS doesn’t run in 2024 Have a lovely night to everyone who is happy about it 💖

It's tough wearing the crown
Manchin’s final Senate races prediction: 51-49, Democratic majority. The pick-up: “If not Pennsylvania, I think Ohio” Says he really doesn’t want it to be 50-50

DeSantis to lose re-elect in a landslide now
Pres. Biden, asked to describe relationship with Gov. DeSantis: “It’s totally irrelevant, but I’ll answer it. Very fine. He complimented me. He thanked me for the immediate response we had. He told me how much he appreciated it, said he was extremely happy with what was going on"

Outgoing Republican lawmaker @RepJoelJohn endorses Democrat @Adrian_Fontes for secretary of state over his GOP House colleague @RealMarkFinchem, whom John warns wants to eliminate voting my mail and tried to overturn the lawful results of the 2020 presidential election.

My heroes: @Delta, for allowing me to change my flight to MT on Saturday to depart from Fort Lauderdale instead of Tampa. @LeMeridien for putting up with us for another night and being so kind. @FtLaudPetLodge for taking Shelby last minute since our joint in Tampa is closed.

A lot of undecided in this poll, but it has @CheriBeasleyNC at 36.6% support among white voters. A number like that would make her the favorite to win that Senate race. This one is looking more and more like a race to watch closely.
Senate (North Carolina) Budd (R) 41% Beasley (D) 41% Hoh (G) 2% Bray (L) 2% 9/20-9/23 by Meredith College (B/C) 731 LV Arf arf! Did I do a good job? Poll #162639 #ElectionTwitter Source: meredith.edu/news/meredith-p…

Here is my opponent, Karoline Leavitt, in her own words: "I am a pro-life Republican, and I will always vote that way when I'm elected to Congress." Granite Staters know what that means, and that’s why reproductive freedom is on the ballot in November. #NHPolitics
