Dems flip heavy Trump district in Wisconsin

Source: The Hill

Democrats on Tuesday won a special election to fill a vacant Wisconsin state Senate district that gave President Trump a big majority in 2016, another hint that a blue wave is building ahead of the November midterm elections.

Democrat Caleb Frostman, the former head of the Door County Economic Development Corporation, outlasted state Assemblyman Andre Jacque (R) in Wisconsin's 1st Senate district. With most precincts reporting, Frostman led Jacque by a margin of 52 percent to 48 percent.

That's a big shift from 2016, when President Trump won the district -- which includes all or parts of six counties near Green Bay -- by a 17-point margin over Hillary Clinton.

Frostman's win marks the 25th Republican-held district that Democrats have won in special elections since President Trump was inaugurated in 2017. The party also claimed 19 seats in regularly scheduled elections in Virginia and New Jersey last year, bringing their total red-to-blue flips to 45.

Hopefully the other brother from another motherfucker will die soon too.

8. Wow! Congrats Wisconsin Dems!!!!

It sounds like this includes much of the area that was Senator Joseph McCarthy's stronghold years ago. If so, this is really, really, really good news.

12. Don't count your chickens before they hatch.

Great! Enjoy the final results, but don't plan on anything short of dirty politics, cheating, voter tampering and every other deceptive tactic they can muster. These fuckers went so far as enlisting the treasonous aid of Putin's Russia...with ZERO negative consequences. Zero!! In fact, most of them couldn't care less, and those that might have a problem with such a treasonous act simply deny it.

These fuckers are merciless. I'm a major skeptic.
