Saturday/ it’s clear: no red wave 🌊

It’s now official: the Democrats are holding the Senate.
News broke late on Sat. night that Catherine Cortez Masto (D) from Nevada has enough votes to hold her Senate seat.

So the Democrats have reached 50 in the Senate, and there is still the run-off election in Georgia on Dec. 6.
The House is still a toss-up.
Trump is toast, no matter what his ‘big announcement’ next Tuesday may be.

The race in district WA03 drew national attention.
The result: Marie Gluesenkamp Pérez, a Democrat, prevailed over Joe Kent, a Republican endorsed by Trump. This is the former seat of Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, a Republican who had voted to impeach Trump* and consequently had lost the 2022 Republican primary to Kent.
*Beutler voted NO for Trump’s first impeachment, and YES for the second impeachment post-Jan. 6, 2020.
