Before we kickoff our reelection campaign, we thought it might be fun to look back at the last three years and try this challenge where progressive leaders share everything they’ve gotten done in under two minutes. Here ⬇️ is our remix: 3 years in... more or less 3 minutes. 😜

On 5/6, Commissioner Jennifer Ho, Rep. @Ilhan, Nawal Noor of Noor Cos., and @SewardRedesign celebrate the $1.8M for the Wadaag Commons project. The funding will provide new and affordable large family housing and help serve those experiencing homelessness.

This kind of ugly imagery fuels extremism, hatred, and violence. It has no place in Minnesota politics, and every candidate should condemn it. jta.org/2022/05/17/politics/…

"Yes, that is how some Israeli historians have described what happened to the Palestinians in 1948: as ethnic cleansing!" My @MehdiHasanShow commentary on @RashidaTlaib's attempt to get Congress to commemorate the 'Nakba,' the Palestinian 'catastrophe':

Conor Lamb was supposed to be such an electoral juggernaut and he acted like it, proclaiming in an NYT puff piece after 2020 that the Squad’s politics were “unworkable and extremely unpopular.” he just got creamed by a candidate running on a platform very close to those politics

Reminder: @AIPAC didn't run ads against @SummerLee about Israel, their supposed mission. They called Summer a bad Democrat, a lie and especially rich coming from a group that endorsed dozens of insurrectionist Republicans in Congress. Her current 47 vote lead in #PA12 is sweet.
AIPAC’s Super PAC, which is backing Steve Irwin in PA-12, has a new ad today attacking Democratic State Rep. Summer Lee and suggesting she’s not really a Democrat. For reference, this PAC endorsed more than 30 GOP members who voted to overturn the 2020 election results

This race really shows what an impact AIPAC's SuperPAC money had on progressive vs moderate races. It looks like @JamieforOregon will take out an incumbent - because outside SuperPACs "only" spent $785,001 on her race. They spent at least $3m in PA-12, NC-1 and NC-4.
We've got a small first batch of results from Multnomah Co. (Portland), and Blue Dog Rep. Kurt Schrader (D) is trailing progressive Jamie McLeod-Skinner (D) 57%-43%. Long way to go in #OR05 but good sign for the challenger.

In #OR05, progressive Jamie McLeod-Skinner (D) carrying Deschutes Co. (Bend) 70%-30% over Rep. Kurt Schrader (D). Looking very grim for the incumbent Blue Dog.

Electing @JohnFetterman to the United States Senate would be a big step forward for Pennsylvania’s working people.

BREAKING: this weekend at the @mngop convention, @KimCrockettSOS played a video that portrayed George Soros, a Jewish man, as a puppet master who is secretly controlling Minnesota's elections. The "Jewish puppet master" is a longstanding and deeply anti-Semitic trope.

NEW: Squad members @IlhanMN and @CoriBush are close to securing civil liberties protections in the House bill on domestic terrorism. They're set to back it, sources tell us. This is something the right should want, but they'll likely demagogue instead: washingtonpost.com/opinions/…
