Linda Belcher (D) wins her KY legislative seat back w/ almost 70%. In 2016, she lost with 49.6%, while Trump won #HD49 with 72% & Rand Paul won it with 64%.
KY is a Red State and this is a D flip.
Not a good sign. The district went R in 2016.
No, it is not a good omen.
What kind of R did they run? Was it a MAGA R or a McConnell R?
More GOPe shenanigans I bet. Theyre happy to lose control and force trump out so the GOPe can restore its power base.
What was the voter turnout %?
widow of incumbent who died of suicide.
Theres something going on and it’s not a reversal of people’s preferences.
People are just NOT going to vote for the Republican “because the Democrats are worse”.
Trump could have had his own party. He’s decided to own the GOP instead. Republicans who run on “I’m with him” are going to do fine.
Most of them are not with him, and the voters know it.
complacency vs seething hatred
She “won it back”- so is this is a “flipper” type of seat that goes back & forth on a regular basis?
Agreed. It’s utter complacency, and we’re still complacent, and we’re going to be complacent in November.
It’s time to pick up the energy.
D is likely a Blue Dog.
Breed is nearly extinct but they’re still some of them in the rural South.
Keep this up, and pretty soon, there will be an impeachment.
“Widow of incumbent who died of suicide.”
Sounds like there may have been a sympathy vote.
Not a good sign if you believe in honest elections. Am I supposed to believe this woman went from 49% to 70% support in a red state state in two years time. You can accept there is complacency on our side, but Im beginning to suspect there will be massive vote fraud committed on a huge scale this November, and these results may be the sign of that occurring.
Hogg, Kasky, and the Parkland children are energizing the Democratic base and Independent voters, folks.
The GOP better get their head in the game, or 2018 will be a blowout.
Don’t be tone-deaf people, a lot of people don’t like the support of AR-15 by some conservatives.
Get your head in the game, folks.
The Republican had denied sexual molestation charges..........perhaps the Republicans were disgusted, too. And couldnt be bothered to come out and vote.
