I've been dying to ask you and this seems as good a place as any.

What does GOPNF mean? i've not been able to suss it out.

But Democrats rode a wave of voter enthusiasm into key governorships and invested huge sums to flip control of state legislatures. As of Wednesday morning, Democrats were projected to win full control in six new states — Colorado, Illinois, Maine, New Mexico, Nevada and New York — and had broken Republicans’ grip on Kansas, Michigan, New Hampshire and Wisconsin.

Full control of a state government — the trifecta of the state House, state Senate and governorship — brings huge benefits. Parties with full control have far more freedom to enact their policy agendas. In many states, full control also gives the party absolute power over congressional and state legislative redistricting, which means it can draw districts that will be hard for its foes to win.A wave of state-level Republican wins in 2010, ahead of the decennial congressional redistricting, helped produce the GOP’s current dominance of state governments and its eight-year control of the U.S. House of Representatives. Democrats were eager to start reversing that trend this year: This cycle, the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee committed to spend $35 million, twice what it spent in 2016.

There’s one more set of elections ahead of the redistricting cycle that begins in 2021. But some of this year’s results are baked into that process. Barring impeachment or other unforeseen circumstances, 34 of the 36 governors elected Tuesday will still be in charge when their states get redistricted in 2021. (The governors of Vermont and New Hampshire serve unusual two-year terms and will be up for re-election again in 2020.) Democrats’ wins in key gubernatorial races in states such as Colorado, Kansas, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin ensure they’ll have a seat at the table when those states get redistricted.
On the topic of gerrymandering.

The Trumplicans are being thinned out by simple attrition (which is why they know they must gerrymander to win). Make voting more accessible and districts more fairly distributed. This is how we can ensure that our government is constantly refreshed by new viewpoints and ideas.
