Democrats pull off big wins in Oklahoma, New Hampshire races

by Charlie May at Salon



Two special elections for state legislative seats, in New Hampshire and Oklahoma, were won by Democrats on Tuesday night, in districts that President Donald Trump had won by double-digit margins last November.

Charlie St. Clair and Jacob Rosecrants won seats for the Democratic Party in both New Hampshire and Oklahoma, respectively. Rosecrants, a school teacher, won the 46th district in Oklahoma, where he defeated Republican Darin Chambers to fill an unexpired term, according to The Oklahoman.

Rosecrants won the election 60.4 percent to 39.6 percent, despite the fact that Republicans held a nearly 3,000 voter-registration advantage.

“Yes, we won tonight,” Rosecrants said. “The battle starts right now. What we have going on in Oklahoma right now is a national embarrassment. The blue wave starts now.”
