The results are in —
Tuesday night, Democrats Carol Doherty and Dan Sena were declared the WINNERS of two closely-watched special elections for the Massachusetts state House.
This means Democrats flipped one seat from red to blue and successfully defended a second – this after flipping two other GOP-held seats in Massachusetts just a few weeks ago.
With Carol, Dan, and their new colleagues headed to the statehouse, Democrats have now flipped more than 450 GOP-held seats from red to blue since Donald Trump was elected.
Here’s the best part: After flipping so many seats, we only need 30 more to topple eight GOP majorities in states like Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and more – but we’re counting on grassroots supporters across the nation to help push our candidates over the top.
Passing the 450-seat milestone has sent Republicans into a panic, too.
A national GOP group headed by former Republican speakers Paul Ryan, John Boehner, and Newt Gingrich even warned that Democrats are “dangerously close to WIPING OUT President Trump’s conservative majorities in states around the country.”
If that’s even close to true, then we need to step up immediately.
Flipping those few extra seats could deliver an entire decade of progress on health care, criminal justice reform, reproductive rights, and more. It could abolish right-wing voting laws and racial gerrymandering that have been used to strip millions of voters of color of their voice at the ballot box and their power in so many capitols.
Top Republican and Democratic strategists actually agree that we’re “dangerously close” to that historic victory – and that it all depends on you.
