As for "crushing it", $2.4M is on the order of a penny per US registered voter.

If that sum were devoted to a single flippable House seat (which it's not), it'd be on the order of $5 a head -- not enough to determine the outcome, but enough to push the opposition to respond in kind.

FYI, other House races on Bernie's list include:
NY-19 (open seat, leans R, winnable)
CO-6 (incumbent R, winnable)
MN-8 (incumbent D, falling from favorite to underdog)
MI-6 (incumbent R, likely out of play)
CA-44 (safe Dem district, D vs D contest a la WA-7)
ND-AL (incumbent R, no shot)
WI-8 (open seat, district leans R, race leans R, 2nd-tier prospect but falling off radar)

Wait a minute, what? Sanders asks you to help flip the House and Senate by raising $$$ for 13 candidates ... one of which is Pramila Jayapal.

Regardless of your take on Jayapal, can you possibly imagine in your wildest fever dreams that the WA-7 contest has anything to do with flipping the House?

Sanders can move million$$ by blasting emails with Ryan taglines, and Ryan can move million$$ by blasting emails with Sanders taglines, and they're both playing on the cupidity of their least savvy followers.

As the parade of recent gropees comes forward, Republican endorsers who un-endorsed him but re-endorsed him on his word that it was "just locker room banter" will now have to re-un-endorse him.

... except that by all other accounts, Baldwin's efforts are not an individual effort, nor are they a one-time thing.

Wait, what???

"justice and equality for all Americans, regardless of skin color" is NOT what Kaepernick, BLM, and many others are fighting for???

And active, involved, outspoken members of the team have somehow been gulled into demonstrating for the wrong thing, and everybody is going along with it???

This Herz, this really Herz.

In Johnson's defense, he was probably really stoned.
