Well, looky here.

A political action committee run by Republican women opposed to Donald Trump is getting involved in Michigan’s most competitive Congressional races — and supporting the Democrat candidates.

Republican Women for Progress PAC tells Metro Times it has taken out $50,000 television ad buys in Michigan’s 11th and 8th Congressional District races. Both races feature a moderate Democrat against a Trump-aligned Republican. In MI-11, Democrat Haley Stevens is up against Republican Lena Epstein, the former Michigan chair for the Trump campaign. In MI-08, Elissa Slotkin is trying to unseat incumbent Rep. Mike Bishop.

“We think the best thing that we can do for the party and for the country right now is to make sure there are good women — Democrat or Republican — that are elected to office and who can serve as a check on this administration and on the president,” says Meghan Milloy, co-founder of Republican Women for Progress. “[This effort] really was inspired by us talking to Republican women in these districts where they said there was just no way that they could vote for the Republican.”

It appears that this blue wave just got a dab of red in it. 

Perhaps before the election, we will see a red tide of pissed off Republican women joining forces with Democrats to finally put a stop to Trump’s out of control agenda. 

Advocating for the rule of law, keeping families together, and standing with America’s allies used to be policy positions the GOP took seriously, perhaps not all of them have forgotten that.

    “If this effort succeeds in the courts, it would be open season for discrimination against LGBT people not just in Texas, but across the country,”
    ” with Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court, the timing of the suits ― filed as he was confirmed and sworn in as a justice ― should also be a blaring siren for everyone who cares about civil rights for LGBTQ people.”

    Trump accusing early voters of “voting fraud,” before adding “Cheat at your own peril,”

    “They’ll also probably abuse executive power in many other ways. And they’ll use claims of voter fraud to justify their disregard of the law and Constitution. If you don’t think this is going to happen, you haven’t been paying attention.”

    Bribery?
    ““We’re looking at putting in a very major tax cut for middle-income people,” Trump told reporters before boarding Air Force One following a rally in Elko, Nevada.

    When asked about timing for the unveiling of the tax cuts, Trump said “sometime around the first of November, maybe a little before.””

    In 2017, President Donald Trump reportedly personally lobbied Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to approve an Adelson casino project.

    The republicans and their PACS are running some nasty/deceitful ads against Haley and Elissa.

    They are running them very frequently, so epstein and bishop must be scared.

    Also got a mailer from right to lifers supporting all. MI republicans, none of which have come out and admitted it

    Isn’t it a little late?

    The House isn’t the critical race. It’s in much better shape for a Democratic majority, albeit not 60%

    The danger is the Senate. Bitch McConnell has already fired his warning shot, warning exactly what they are going to do when they maintain their majority: goodbye ACA, goodbye Medicare, goodbye Medicaid, goodbye Social Security. Just for starters. It’s the SENATE that is important.

    Just like it was all about the Supreme Court in 2016 when it was between Clinton and Trump. Overconfidence and apathy handed that to Trump. The same will lose the Senate to the Republicans if the pressure isn’t maintained and the focus is lost.

    Three weeks. We need every leans Democratic and toss up, plus at least one or two leans Republican just for good measure.

    This is provided we actually have a clean, competitve race. That’s not happening in Georgia or North Dakota. And we need Heidi Heitkamp to win in North Dakota.

    We need Beto to win in Texas.

    As a little side note on that House. That fuck Devin Nunes will maintain his seat as will that thief Duncan Hunter. But Darrell Issa’s seat is going to a Democrat and it looks like Dana Roerbacher is going to lose to a Democrat too.
