  • Troy Balderson vs. Danny O’Connor: LIVE Ohio special election results

    Conservative Review ^ | August 7, 2018 | staff
    Tonight, the Ohio special election widely seen as a referendum on President Donald Trump reaches its conclusion. Republican Troy Balderson is running with Trump’s endorsement in a district the president won by 11 points in 2016. He’s running for a seat that has been held by a Republican since 1983, but his Democratic opponent, Danny O’Connor, is running surprisingly close to him. He’s a moderate Republican who supports a pathway to citizenship for so-called “Dreamers” and wants any Obamacare replacement to include pre-existing conditions regulations. O’Connor has positioned himself as a moderate Democrat, pledging that if elected he would not...

    Democrats' path to take over the House in November took a sharp right turn last night as a Republican won a special congressional election in Arizona's 8th Congressional District. Debbie Lesko, a former state senator, bested Democrat Hiral Tipirneni, a physician, by about 10,000 votes. Donald Trump won Arizona by 21 points in 2016. Lesko will serve out the term of Rep. Trent Franks, who resigned in disgrace.

    Tuesday’s special election in Arizona’s 8th Congressional District, in the conservative suburbs outside Phoenix, may reveal the depth of Republicans’ political challenges in 2018. Debbie Lesko, the party’s nominee and a former state senator, is favored to win over Hiral Tipirneni, a Democrat and emergency room doctor, in a district that supported President Trump in 2016 by more than 20 points.

    Democrats are hoping to continue their recent momentum in special elections Tuesday when voters outside of Phoenix head to the polls to fill a vacancy created when Republican Rep. Trent Franks resigned in December amid sexual harassment allegations. Democrats don't think they will win the race that pits Hiral Tipirneni, a physician, against Republican Debbie Lesko, a former state senator. And Arizona's 8th Congressional District has all the hallmarks of a place Republican should easily win: Voters in the predominantly senior and white district, where there are around 78,000 more registered Republicans than Democrats, backed President Donald Trump by 21...
  • April Special Election - Republican can win

    There has been much talk lately of a huge blue wave coming our way in November. One of those talking points is that Democrats keep winning special elections, and that part is true as since Jan 2017 to today the Democrats have won over many key special elections nationwide. However it looks like we might buck that trend in Massachusetts, check out this local State Representative Race happening in Attleboro. The election is on April 3rd and the GOP candidate is up slightly. The point is, if the GOP can win in Massachusetts - this blue trend might not really...

  • 120th House District Seat Goes Blue After 40 Years Of Republicans; Phil Young Wins Special Election

    02/28/2018 6:06:53 AM PST · by ChicagoConservative27 · 38 replies
    Bolstered by an energized base of grassroots activists, Connecticut Democrats on Tuesday picked up a seat in the state House of Representatives that’s been held by Republicans for more than 40 years. Democrat Phil Young, a former member of the town council, beat Republican Bill Cabral in the race to represent the 120th district, which includes most of Stratford. The seat was open because Republican state Rep. Laura Hoydick was elected mayor, resulting in her resignation from the House in early January. Nick Balletto, the chairman of the Connecticut Democratic party, called the win “historic” and said it signifies that...
  • Democrat Phil Spagnuolo Wins NH State Special Election For 38th Flip Since Trump's Inauguration

    Daily Beast ^ | February 27, 2018 | Daily Beast
    Democrat Phil Spagnuolo won a special election in New Hampshire's Belknap County District 3 on Tuesday night 968-841 (54%-46%). It is the 38th state legislative flip from Democrat to Republican since President Trump's inauguration. The contest for this state House race pitted Spagnuolo, a substance abuse recovery coach, against Republican Les Cartier, a former employee at the state fire marshal's office. 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,...

    As a resident in the district holding a special election in PA in a few weeks, I am seeing a lot of activity, which is good. Clearly the polling must be doing fairly well for Lamb, I believe the last I saw was anywhere from 3-6 points behind the Republican.... There are plenty of ads being run by both sides... Both sides are canvassing. Democrats without question are more motivated, signage polling every democrat seems to have a lamb sign. Cannot accuse the R side of being disengaged, they are fighting. However in all the ads, and things they are...

  • Five Lessons From The GOP Special Election Loss In Florida

    Rod Thomson Republicans lost a seat big in the Florida Legislature Tuesday that carries ridiculously outsized implications — because everything since November 2016 is DefCon 1 Armageddon for Democrats. In this era of The Woman and #MeToo, the race pitted a female Democrat against a male Republican in a fairly even district. Republican James Buchanan, son of Congressman Vern Buchanan lost to liberal Democrat lawyer Margaret Good. The House District covers northern Sarasota County, including the Democrat-dominated City of Sarasota, and has flipped between Republican and Democrat over the years. Most recently it was held by a Republican who chose...

    Democrat Patty Schachtner won a special election for a state Senate seat in Wisconsin on Tuesday, scoring a huge upset victory for her party in a district that President Donald Trump handily captured just over a year ago. It was the latest in a string of election victories for Democrats since Trump took office, and a sign of hope for the party that the energy from the base and frustration with the president could lead to more wins in November. With every precinct counted, The Washington Post reported that Schachtner, the chief medical examiner for St. Croix County, won by...

    THE BIG IDEA: There is a stark class divide in the Alabama Senate race. It's larger than the gender gap, and it crosses party lines. White-collar folks who graduated from college are significantly more likely to defect from GOP candidate Roy Moore than blue-collar, non-college-educated people. The country club set cares far more about their state's reputation and the effect it has on the business climate.

Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, said he didn't think President Trump had any other option than to endorse GOP Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, who has been accused by multiple women of sexual misconduct. "I don't think he had any choice but to do that ... that's the only Republican we can get down there," Hatch said, according to press pool report.

His parting words were ‘Go get them Roy.’ Thank you, POTUS, for supporting the Judge.”
