FLIP FLIP FLIP Democrat Flips Deep-Red House Seat in Missouri

Source: The Daily Beast

Democratic pick Mike Revis turns a heavily GOP state legislative district blue.

Democratic candidate Mike Revis on Tuesday flipped what had been a deep-red State House seat in Missouri by a 108-vote margin over his Republican opponent.

Revis defeated GOP candidate David C. Linton in the special election to replace Rep. John McCaherty, who left the office to focus on his run for Jefferson County executive.

President Trump won the heavily Republican district by a 61-33 margin in the 2016 election. There were three other special elections in the state on Tuesday night, all of which the Republican party defended. However, there were major net swings towards Democrats.

Revis' win is likely welcome news for Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO), thought to be one of the most vulnerable incumbents facing reelection this year in a state that Trump won by over 18 points.

8. More than anything, this shows what was wrong with Wasserman-Schultz's stratgegy ...

... of ignoring races in heavily red states.
