TUESDAY: Democrats Flipped Two More State Legislative Seats
Two Democrats won state legislative contests Tuesday night, flipping the seats from Republican hands and marking the 38th and 39th legislative flips since President Trump's inauguration, reports The Daily Beast.
Democrat Phil Spagnuolo won a special election in New Hampshire's Belknap County District 3 on Tuesday night 968-841 (54%-46%).
The seat was left open after the death of Republican State Rep. Donald Flanders last September. Donald Trump won the district by a sizable 54-41 margin in 2016, four years after Barack Obama carried it by just one point, 50-49.
Democrat Phil Young won a contest in Connecticut's state House District 120 as well.
The race in House District 120 was a result of a vacancy when former State Rep. Laura Hoydick, a Republican, resigned after becoming mayor of Stratford.
In the 2016 presidential election, the district voted for Hillary Clinton by a small margin 49-47, despite the fact that she beat President Trump statewide by nearly 14 points.
Trump is driving the country into the hands of Lefties. Unless there is a serious trend change, the November elections are going to be a disaster for liberty.
Thanks, "Trump for Libertarians."
