RIP, California GOP: Republicans lash out after midterm election debacle

RIP.

politico.com "There is no message. There is no messenger. There is no money. And there is no infrastructure,” says one top Republican.

[11/09/18]   Volunteers Needed to count Votes!
Tony Thurmond and 16th Assembly member candidate Rebecca Bauer-Kanan need observers to make sure Marshall Tuck or Republican forces don’t cause important votes to be thrown out. (We may need observers for Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara to ensure he stays in the lead as well.)

So please let me know if you are interested in volunteering! We need multiple people to take shifts. The hours of observation in Alameda is 8:30 am to 7:30 pm.

You can still make a difference by giving of your time! PM us your cell number, email address and your candidate preference (only if it matters) and we will forward your information onto the Alameda County Central Committee. Thank you!

Risk Factors for 2018 GOP House Incumbents

The Cook Political Report released a report identifying seven risk factors facing Republicans in Congress and identifying which incumbents running for re-election may be in trouble based on them.
