538 gives Leslie Cockburn the edge

While not everyone agrees, Nate Silver’s 538 new projections give our candidate an edge in the upcoming election.

The site rates Leslie Cockburn’s chances at 57%. Further good news is that 538 rates the chances of the Democrats taking the House at 83%.

The Senate, at this moment, seems still out of reach, according to the polls, although Tim Kaine is in good shape.

Still, Mitch McConnell is reportedly worried that the Republicans could lose the Senate. One of most exciting Senate races is in the deep red state of Texas where Beto O’Rourke is within striking distance of Ted Cruz.

There is only one way to make these projections a reality and that is to vote.
