After four years of Trump and American retreat, the free world looked for leadership in the face of Russian aggression. They saw @POTUS who told the world America is back and stands with all peace-loving and freedom seeking peoples around the world. Thank you, Mr. President.

Ukraine is sending condolences ..... to America
Deeply saddened by the news of the murder of innocent children in Texas. Sincere condolences to the families of the victims, the people of the US and @POTUS over this tragedy. The people of Ukraine share the pain of the relatives and friends of the victims and all Americans.

Gonna be pretty frustrating when the Senate does nothing on gun violence this week because Chris Coons needs to be home for Memorial Day

She’s turned her back on everyone. It’s her move.
REMINDER: Senator Collins turned her back on @fred_guttenberg when Fred asks if there will be a vote on Manchin Toomey to #endGunViolence Her lack of compassion was heartbreaking. Senator Collins INACTION has consequences like Ulvade, Texas.💔

This is magical thinking. They said the same thing in 2016. They’ll say the same thing next year. 35 is enough to win a split primary. We’ve already seen it.
The results tonight confirm what many Republican consultants say privately: that the hardcore Stop the Steal vote is somewhere around 30 or 35 percent of the G.O.P. electorate. You can't win a primary on that alone.

Politicize it. It’s the only way to get something done. Show the tears. Show the blood stains. Show the tiny coffins. Less is betrayal of the next classroom full of kids. Politicize it.

Wrap your head around this fact: GOP primary voters in #GA14 simultaneously renominated Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R) by 53 pts and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) by 20 pts.

Messaging is essential in a campaign and repetition helps those messages break through barriers. Democrats aren’t repeating enough. @JoeTrippi breaks it down on the pod: apple.co/3sRHsGE

UPDATE- The first student to be identified is 4th grader Xavier Lopez. His mother was with him at the school during an awards ceremony just hours before the shooting, not realizing it would be the last time she would see him #KSATnews bit.ly/3wKfMVf?utm_source=tw…

11y saw me crying and asked if it was about Uvalde. “Yeah,” I said. “It’s really sad and I worry about y’all.” “It’s okay, Dad,” he said to me, “we train for this.” Fuck. I’m broken. He’s in sixth grade. A math nerd. A gamer. He’s not a goddamn Marine. He “trains” for *this?*

ICYMI: Texas police chiefs and rank and file associations clearly didn’t support permitless carry, while the @NRA and the gun lobby did. Who did the “we support the blue” politicians like ⁦@SenTedCruz⁩ & other TX politicians side with? The NRA. kxan.com/news/texas-politics…

Was getting pre-election reports in GA that ~10% of "likely" Dem voters were pulling GOP ballot instead to stick it to Trump & vote Kemp/Raffensperger. Can put numbers to it soon but clearly D crossover helped embarass Perdue & seems to have pulled Raffensperger across 50% mark.

I've seen enough: GA Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger (R) wins the #GASOS primary outright, defeating Trump-endorsed Rep. Jody Hice (R).

As of tonight neither @CawthornforNC nor @JodyHice will be retuning to Congress next year. Don’t know their replacements, but these are small wins.

.@HoustonChron editorial board: “We call on Abbott, whose campaign war chest is comfortably overflowing in his reelection bid against Democrat Beto O’Rourke, to replenish his bankrupt conscience and do something, anything, to stop the blood of children and the tears of parents.”

Kerr is accurate when he mentions 90% of Americans favor criminal background checks on all gun sales. Here is the data from a 2019 FOX News poll. It also found 67% of Americans favor a ban on assault rifles.
