Democrats overwhelmingly wins shock victory in Missouri district Trump carried by 28 points

3


Democrats are walloping Republicans across the country in recent special elections. And when the GOP thought new polls signaled Democrats were losing their competitive streak heading into 2018, then they were dead wrong.

On Tuesday night, Missouri maintained four special elections for state house districts, and Democrats snagged a winning number of analysts expected them to get a shot at House District 97.

It was never believed to be competitive because Trump carried the district 61 to 33 at 2016. And yet Democrat Mike Revis proved that wrong.

What made the win even more astonishing is that Revis conducted in an unabashedly innovative platform.

He called on the state to stop “robbing our public schools of public tax dollars to give money to private for-profit” schools and called the state’s anti-union “right-to-work” proposal “a 60-year-old bad idea, pushed by big corporations to lower wages.”

His Republican rival, David Linton, ran largely on a right-wing platform opposing abortion and gun legislation.

This 31-point Democratic swing is a huge testament to the continued strength and excitement of this resistance.

Missouri voters delivered Trump along with the GOP a message: The GOP’s hateful agenda has made a whole new electoral map.
