  1. Good, if the Labour party doesn’t show its support for organised labour, then what the hell does the party stand for?

  2. This was just the first round of the legislative elections, but it looks like Mélenchon's left-wing alliance

  3. Long story short: Republicans have total control in South Dakota, so legislators have refused to expand Medicaid through the Affordable Care Act for over a decade. People finally got tired of the obstruction and successfully initiated a ballot referendum on expanding Medicaid, which will be on the ballot in November. And of course Republican legislators found that completely unacceptable and tried to rig the upcoming referendum to fail by putting a referendum on yesterday's ballot, which would force Medicaid expansion supporters to get 60 percent of the vote to succeed, instead of a simple majority.

  4. This is the first time in 15 years that the Australian Labor Party will have won a majority in Parliament. I hope they use their majority well to pass climate change, healthcare, and labor rights legislation.

  5. Even if Labor didn't secure the majority they wouldn't have needed the Greens in the lower house to pass legislation. What's more, the Greens still hold the balance of power in the senate so negotiation was always guaranteed.

  6. Yup, you're right about the Senate, since there will just barely be a progressive majority (Labor + Greens + independent David Pocock is 39 seats, which is a bare majority). However, regarding the lower house,

  7. Incumbent Kurt Schrader has been defeated in the Democratic primary by progressive Jamie McLeod-Skinner. Schrader is one of the most conservative Democrats in Congress, he’s been called the Joe Manchin of the House. He voted against Biden's infrastructure bill because it allowed the government to negotiate lower drug prices, and only voted for it after killing the provision. After the Jan 6 insurrection, he opposed impeaching President Trump, calling it a "lynching," which he was forced to apologize for. In 2020, he voted against the PRO Act, which protects the right of workers to freely form a union and bargain together.

  8. That makes 19 Tory MPs who have publicly submitted letters of no confidence in Boris Johnson, although the number is probably higher because there are likely Tory MPs who privately submitted letters. Reminder that 54 Tory MPs (15% of the caucus) have to submit a letter to trigger a vote of no confidence in Boris Johnson. If he loses the vote, it would trigger a Tory leadership election (that Johnson could run in).

  9. What a huge shock /s. Congrats to Stacey Abrams, but she was unopposed in this primary election. Still, I hope she wins in November. In the entire history of the US, we've never had a black woman governor. I really hope she becomes the first.

  10. And she has just been declared the winner of Georgia's Democratic primary for governor (not really surprising, given she was unopposed in the primary). Georgia hasn't had a Democratic governor since 2003. I hope she wins in November and becomes America's first ever black woman governor. Georgia deserves so much better than Kemp.

  11. This is of course talking about Rep. Henry Cuellar, the last anti-abortion Democrat in the House. Tomorrow, he will face progressive Jessica Cisneros, who forced him into a primary runoff in TX-28. I hope she prevails, Cuellar is probably the most conservative Democrat in Congress right now, besides Joe Manchin. We don’t need any anti-choice Democrats in Congress.

  12. So first of all, the Greens have won two seats in the House, with the potential of winning two more. That might not sound like a lot, but its notoriously difficult for groups that aren't Labor or Coalition to win any lower house seats at all, since these seats are elected by districts. The Greens also made dramatic gains in the Senate, which is elected by proportional representation. They're on track to win 12 seats there, which may lead to a progressive majority in the Senate. In addition, the party’s primary vote has increased nationally by 1.9% to 12.3%, which shows that people are really starting to care about the environment and climate change.

  13. Some of the progressive victories mentioned in the article:

  14. Dave Wasserman from Cook Political Report called the race today:

  15. All while Oz and McCormick hire an army of lawyers to deal with the fiasco that is the Republican Senate primary, and there will most likely be a long, protracted recount of that election too. I'm confident that Fetterman will demolish whoever wins the Republican primary to become the next Senator from Pennsylvania.

  16. It’s been so long since there’s been a politician that genuinely excites me. John Fetterman is one of those rare politicians. I can’t wait to see him crush whoever the Republican nominee is in November. He’d be a welcome and refreshing voice in the Senate.

  18. Media just said it’ll be Mastriano. Looking forward to Fetterman trouncing him.

  19. Mastriano will be the Republican nominee for the PA Governor race. The Senate primary hasn’t been called on the Republican side yet. It’ll mostly likely either be Oz or McCormick though. Either way, I’m confident Fetterman will prevail.

  20. He’s not an official source, but Cook Political Report’s Dave Wasserman (the “I’ve seen enough” guy) has already called the race for Fetterman:
