The lapses and failures of the latest spate of special elections clearly spells their doom.
Check out what happened in Kansas! Mike Pompeo's seat opened
Yes, the progressive Democrats was within 4 points of winning in the special election--but the Republican still won.
In Louisiana, a state senate seat held by Democrats since 1972, flipped back into Republican hands.
Here's a great announcement about that pickup from the Republican State Legislative Committee:
For months, Democrats have bragged about state-level, special election strength and victories, while conveniently glossing over one very important detail: they weren’t actually winning any new seats. But on Saturday, the seat count finally changed… and not in their direction. Republican John Stefanski this weekend flipped Louisiana House District 42 – a seat held by Democrats since at least 1972 – after Democrats failed to even file a candidate in the race. Additionally, Republicans retained House District 92 on Saturday with a win by Joe Stagni. So for those of you keeping score, Democrats in state legislatures – despite massive interest and spending – have still flipped zero seats and hold even less than they did at the beginning of 2017. So much for refocused and rebuilding. ICYMI earlier this month, RSLC Political Director Justin Richards released a 2017 special elections update memo noting that despite major investments and major party surrogates’ engagement, Democrats hadn’t actually netted any new seats in state legislative chambers.
Keep in mind--the only reason that Louisiana has a Democratic Govenror is that the Republican candidate for Governor, US Senator David Vitter, was impalatable to many voters because of past dalliances with prostitutes in Washington D.C.
It had to do with the Republican candidate running for office.
But let the truth be told. The Democratic Party is in complete shambles, and the states where they hold complete power? They are crashing and burning!
In South Carolina, not only have Republicans showed real strength, but the conservative candidate won, the type of person who wants to see more power in the hands of individual citizens and less with power-brokers in Washington DC.
If the Georgia special election goes Republican for Karen Handel, expected more heads to roll in the DNC.
So much fun! No wonder the Democratic minority is going nuts in Washington. They have to distract voters over Russian infiltration into the Election. If not, the media will be full exposed as in league with the Democratic Party, since they refuse to cover and report on their rampant and growing corruption in the state of California as well as Rhode Island, Hawaii, Delaware, and Oregon.
