OK, this news broke Tuesday night, but we were afraid it might have gotten lost in all the buzz about Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s out-of-the-blue primary win in New York.
Surprising no one, traitor Chelsea Manning lost her bid to unseat Sen. Ben Cardin in Maryland Tuesday night.

Manning didn’t do much campaigning, blaming the enormous toll on her physical and emotional health. She announced in late April that the top of her platform was the complete abolishment of ICE, although in her thank you note to supporters, Manning made it clear she opposed all mean things:
Last year, when I was released from prison, I emerged into a world of hate and injustice. I traveled across the country. I saw immigrants, people of color, queer and trans folk under attack. I saw our most vulnerable communities living under a de facto military occupation of violent, heavily-armed police forces. I’ve seen what a military occupation looks like first-hand: I participated in the U.S. occupation of Iraq from 2009-2010.
Witnessing how scary and unjust the world has become drove me to run for U.S. Senate in my home state of Maryland.
Too bad that didn’t work out.
Bradley Manning (D-Traitor) loses again. https://t.co/P2CwSHptQx

It's almost as if when you're found to be a traitor to your country you shouldn't try to run for office in said country after that. Who knew? https://t.co/pP6ysFHB1j

That’s too bad: “Senator Traitor Who Should Still Be Rotting in Prison” had a certain ring to it. https://t.co/8ky9YNdB6e

Does this mean Democrats who voted against Manning are transphobic? https://t.co/iXcy1Po9rC
