Dems win Missouri state House race in deep red pro-Trump district

Democrats on Tuesday picked up a state House seat in a Missouri legislative district that President Donald Trump won easily in 2016.

The victory, coming on the heels of other Democratic state-level triumphs in deep-red territory in the past year, provides another indication of the engaged Democratic base that has Republicans worried about the 2018 midterm elections.

Unofficial numbers from the secretary of state's office about the House District 97 race put Democrat Mike Revis 52-48 over Republican David Linton. The Jefferson County district, whose seat was held by a Republican who left for another position, went 61-33 for Trump in 2016.

Republicans kept three seats up for grabs during Tuesday's special elections, based on the preliminary results.

The Missouri Democratic Party congratulated Revis on his win, calling it a "loud and clear message" to the local GOP establishment.
Looks like the referendum on trump continues.

I live in a rural farm county and for sure there are drugs in many rural areas. Drug doesn't care which political faction you belong to.

I live in Gasconade county Missouri, yes lots of drug activity. Drug addicts don't vote, they are more worried about where their next fix is coming from. When I go to the polls and vote, it is more 50 and older adults standing in line, seldom see young people at the polls.

So what will go first when the commies again move into high office in this country? Reinstate the past restrictions with a vengeance? Jobs moving back to the US halt? 401K's disappear into oblivion? Again what are you willing to give up for demo c rat weapon of climate change?

Yeah lets blame Russia they are the ones that preach climate change right? Now for simple idiot logic and common sense what political party constantly preaches it? Is it the Russians that are really trying to control our lives and altering votes? Or is it the switch around party?
You know they do the dirty crap and then blame the other side. It is their MO from day 1 of existence.
