    There is no rocket science here. The Republicans have spent 20+ years now trying to divide the country and adopt ways to outright cheat, so that their old bony white hands can still clutch power in a party who refuses to adapt to an ever changing demographic country wide. They made a decision to not grovel for votes from people who have a darker hue in the pigment contained in their skin cells. The Republican party in essence is a white Nationalist party and they cheat every chance they get. Gerrymandering is so disgusting and unethical, yet, it became part of the the party's credo to redraw districts that would insure Republican senators of victory even though there were far more Democrats in what should be their districts. Donald Trump is a liar and a scum bag of epic proportions and he continues to get away with corruption to the nth degree. Trump is a professional criminal who should have been in prison for the rest of his life years ago. Trump will happily destroy America to protect himself while he is trying to remain in power permanently.

    Congratulations to Ms. McBath on her election to the house. I wish her well in her pursuit of sensible gun control. I am a gun owner, but I don't own or need an AK47, hand grenades, rocket launcher or any other form of weaponry to feel safe in my home or yard.

    I also remember the shooting of her son. What a courageous woman, turning her sorrow and grief into action.

    I remember the shooting that took her son from her.....I live in Jacksonville where it happened.

    Poor kid committed the sin of being in a car that was playing loud music when some old drunk white guy shot at the car.

    I hope she's found some peace.

    good for her! her cause is a very worthy one... too bad she had to lose her son to become an agent of change. we must get a handle on guns.. good common sense laws are needed and must be demanded by shaming this president.. what a failure...

  • Forward forward

    Good for her. We won't flip the gun issue in this Congress or the next, but we need to keep speaking and pushing. Another dozen mass murdered in California last night. Ms McBath will be another voice for sanity, reason, responsibility, and safety. Gun violence is a massive public health care menace, and needs to be addressed on many fronts.

    Good news. 😊

    Trump will never admit that he is the reason the GOP lost the House. Trump didn't save the GOP from the blue-wave. He was the cause of the blue-wave.

    Abigail Spanberger — in case you forgot her name — just flipped Virginia's 7th district blue after 47 years of GOP control.

    I do not understand why some feel that we should not beef up gun laws because it will make it difficult for law abiding citizens to purchase guns.... It is a huge pain in the butt for me to have to unpack my carry on, take my laptop out of its case, take my shoes off, and throw my water out only to have to buy a new one on the other side of security for $5,.... etc.... but it is what we need to do in order to prevent a terrorist from killing more innocent Americans.... I have to jump through hoops to get my daughter's monthly meds as they are a controlled substance but it is what I need to do in order to prevent abuse of prescription drugs.... Why is it so unthinkable for some to be inconvenienced in an effort to keep all of us a bit safer?

    Sex is great and all, but there's nothing like the feeling of voting a Trump republican out of office. (Phew.....I need a cigarette!)

  • Bob Marshall

    Good for her. I don't agree with her particular primary issue but this is how politics should be. We need more people willing to stand up and fight the establishment.

  • Mike Boomer

    trump is an ignorant mad man and the W.H. Press Core should walk out and not return until a new Real President resides again in the W.H.; cut trump off from all network coverage. Cover Real News instead of this bully.

  • Powderedtoastman

    Thanks, Donald.

  • Tertulliano

    I applaud the gesture as it is being rare in nature, nowadays.

  • Indie6050

    Living on the east coast most of my life, I always had issues with his character and behavior even before he ran for office. But now that he is the potus, it is getting worse. I think there more underlying issues with the president, possibly some mental problems ?

  • HadEnoughYet

    Hopefully the Dems can replicate this more. Having more moderate candidates is the winning ticket.

  • James Coletrane

    Respect for the GOP incumbent being a class act in her loss.

  • John Galt

    It looks like the GOP is now the party of old white people living in rural areas and small cities. I only hope that one day they find out there is more than one channel for news other than Fox.

  • StrontiDog

    I guess Handel wasn't the Messiah, after all. (Sorry, couldn't help myself.)

  • Prophet With Honor

    The seat once held by Newt has gone Democratic, wow.

  • poultrygeist

    Republicans better hurry up and redraw that district !

  • Sal Monela

    Good for the new candidate, and kudos for the incumbent for showing a modicum of class.

  • ROBOTIX JONES

    Times are changing.
