Submission results in California have meant that candidates who were behind when everyone went to bed the night before, got up to victory. It was also the case in the Arizona Senate competition and in many House races.
In CNN’s post-election reporting, it seemed as if democrats were to turn a network from somewhere near 30 residential places. Now it seems that with everyone but a race named, their take will be 40 – if the remaining competition, California’s 21st Congressional District, falls to Democrat T.J. Cox, who just this week pulled in front of rep David Valadao in the poll.
It is true that Democrats lost a two-seat network in the Senate ̵
1; they raised Republican sites in Arizona and Nevada, but lost places in Florida, North Dakota, Missouri and Indiana. But the map, which made them defend 10 places in states that won Donald Trump in 2016, favored Republicans to begin with.
They also picked up government runs in the Midwest, a critical area as they lost to Trump 2016 and could help Democratic nominated charts a course to defeat him by 2020. Less covered, but more importantly, will be their gains in state legislators. Democrats still run bad Republicans in control of state chambers, but they raised a net of six along with at least 332 state legislators, according to the National Conference of Government Legislators.
With another measure, even if they are functionally meaningless, they also have reason to be happy. In 2016, Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by more than 3 million votes. Democrats lined Republican House candidates by 2018 with almost 9 million.
