Gerrymandering the Popular Vote … or Whatever

The threesome is back together for this coast-to-coast, post-election extravaganza! Starting with the GOP loss in Teri’s home district of VA-10, through the Senate seat pickup in April’s Hoosier country, and ending with the disaster that is Kira’s home state of California, the ladies give you the unvarnished, grassroots perspective on Midterms 2018. Also, when did the Senate popular vote become a thing?

     The sound is painfully distorted.

    I’m all in. The sass at the debates alone would make it exciting.

    I’m sort of (though on a much lower pay grade) in the same boat in terms of “too poor to move” out of California (I have a job that overpays me for anywhere else, but it gives me a lower middle class lifestyle here, and I can’t take the gig with me).  I also look around and go “what’s a red state that won’t flip” and I thought Arizona might be it but it’s getting a more blue shade of purple every cycle.  

    I’m thinking Idaho.  But there’s nothing to do there.
