"Unity" to satisfy a racist, authoritarian leadership isn't "moving forward." It isn't ethical nor does it represent the ultimate good in a functioning society. Justice. Justice will give us unity.

This brilliant young scholar is Quintez Brown. Some of you may remember him speaking at my launch for U.S. Senate in 2019. He has been missing for several days. He was last seen at Algonquin Park Pool in Louisville. If you have any info please contact his family 502-936-3860 🙏🏾 https://t.co/VDeDV5dq9Q

The Senate votes today on whether to advance a voting rights bill. Obama has thrown his support behind Manchin's plan in hopes of winning some Republican support. Please call your Senators today!

Here's the bottom line: Requiring bipartisan support as the unalterable precondition for acting in defense of democracy cedes an unacceptable degree of control over our democratic future to the increasingly anti-democracy party. That's not tenable. https://t.co/ZXdXS51TuD https://t.co/EDveHLG8Sl

Today is Election Day in NYC. If you vote in Manhattan, vote for @AlvinBraggNYC for the important position of DA. He will balance important reforms with public safety, and he will promote equal justice for all. He is the only progressive candidate who can win so vote for Alvin.

American Airlines received almost $7 billion in PPP loans, their CEO made almost $11 million, yet they still laid off 30,000 of their employees during the pandemic. Can you guess why most of those 30,000 people don't want to get their old jobs at American Airlines back? https://t.co/HvvENLfbmU

Breaking WSJ: New York prosecutors are investigating whether a top Trump Org. executive, Matthew Calamari, received tax-free fringe benefits, as part of their probe into whether Trump's company and employees illegally avoided paying taxes on such perks. https://t.co/LnaNoJtHld

Everyday I wake up to new attacks from members of the Republican party. They see the movement we are building to make Miami more blue in 2022. If we achieve our goals, Florida will turn blue. Can you retweet this and follow me to help spread this message to more Floridians?

There's a GoFundMe to help with funeral-related expenses, medical costs and counseling after eight children from the Tallapoosa County Girls Ranch were killed in a devastating accident Saturday. The ranch provides a home for neglected or abused children. https://t.co/OpCpBjIcYX

When automatic payments from the Child Tax Credit begin to hit bank accounts and mailboxes next month, remember: not a single congressional Republican voted for it.

The Republican plan for 2022 and 2024 can be summarized in one sentence: Stop as many Black people from voting as possible.

Fascinating decision: fed'l judge dismisses virtually all claims against Trump, Barr & other fed defendants over clearing of Lafayette square protestors (a narrow sliver of a 1st am claim survives); permits some claims against DC/Va officials to go forward https://t.co/gg25Qxt2j8

She and her few sober-minded colleagues might consider using floor time at the end of the day to provide easily digestible lessons. “No, the House cannot change the outcome of a presidential election,” might be one. https://t.co/56v1a4Vh1J

In case you were wondering what this latest GOP smear attempt against Sheldon Whitehouse is all about, I assure you: it's not about his exclusive beach club membership. It's about McConnell trying to stop Whitehouse's bill to ban dark money from politics: https://t.co/9tUdQQjCGy https://t.co/8RQULmQqfr

the electoral system is already so weighted for republicans in the House, EC, and Senate, that they would win any election that was D+4 or closer, and it's very confusing/alarming to me that they are nonetheless moving to explicit anti-democratic vote-tossing schemes

1. It has been 6 months since the January attack on Capitol. Many companies are keeping their promises to cut off donations to GOP objectors. Others are trying to quietly funnel money to the members pf Congress who voted to overturn the election. https://t.co/hKsjFBQlGO

I read this book from @LukeEpplin and it was fantastic. I’m a Cleveland fan so I knew a little bit about the ‘48 Indians but this book taught me so much more. I never realized how much Larry Doby’s integration in baseball differed from Jackie Robinson. https://t.co/NSNSSUEKYF
