Democrats Just Flipped A Deep-Red District In Missouri
A Democrat just won a district Trump carried by 30 points.
Democrats keep winning elections in Republican districts.
Democratic candidate Mike Revis on Tuesday won a special election race to fill a deep-red Missouri state house seat.
Revis won the race by just 108 votes in a district that Donald Trump won 61 to 33 in 2016.
Revis beat Republica David C. Linton in the special election to replace Republican John McCaherty.
The win by Democrats represents the 35th legislative seat that Democrats have flipped since Trump’s inauguration.
“Representative-elect Mike Revis’s victory tonight will undoubtedly send another shockwave through the GOP as we continue to run the best candidates focused on addressing local issues and improving their neighbors’ quality of life,” Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee Executive Director Jessica Post said in a statement.
“The DLCC continues to be impressed by our dedicated and talented slate of candidates, who have stepped up to run in these precedent-setting special elections.”
