Democrat Jacob Rosecrants, a teacher with a passion for public education, won this special election to the Oklahoma state House 60-40 percent, becoming the first Democrat to win this district since 2012. He’ll replace Scott Martin, an Oklahoma Republican who actually didn’t resign because of a scandal (unlike several of his colleagues already this year). Trump won this district 52-41 percent last fall, making this win a 31-point swing toward the Democrat. What’s more, Rosecrants himself ran for this same seat and lost in 2016 … by the same 60-40 margin he won by on Tuesday.
In the special elections for Congress and Statehouses, Dems are up an average of 13% since 2016. We need to go up by about 9% to take the House of Representatives. We need to run everywhere.
Why not give some money that is spread equally among all the eventual Democratic nominees in all House districts currently held by Republicans?
