Open seats are often a sign of & a contributor to a building wave election. Congress isn't the only lawmaking body that Democrats could gain control of in November. Dems have already picked up a ton of state legislative seats in 2017  https://twitter.com/DKElections/status/955872841215377408 
NC Republicans are advancing two separate plans to gerrymander the lower court districts & also allow the gerrymandered legislature to outright appoint judges like in Virginia. NC Republicans are responding to anti-gerrymandering court rulings with... more gerrymandering  https://twitter.com/AriBerman/status/955869354050179073 
@jbview That's precisely the opposite of what Republicans did in Virginia last year. Ed Gillespie ran racial dog-whistle ads scaremongering over re-enfranchising those with felony convictions
Without felony disenfranchisement in Florida, George W. Bush never would have become president & Rick Scott (R) may have never become governor. This policy is discriminatory against people of color & swings close elections. It's a huge threat to democracy  https://twitter.com/PoliticsWolf/status/955844008562933762 
Republican Gov. Rick Scott actively made felony disenfranchisement *more* restrictive when he took office in 2011. Republicans have fought efforts to reform felony disenfranchisement in several states since 2010
