New Hampshire Democrats flipped a state House seat in a district that Donald Trump won by 7% in 2016. No Democrat had ever won the district before and the victory is the first seat in the country at any level to flip from red to blue after the election of Trump.

.......................
Democrat Edie DesMarais wins Carroll County seat in Wolfeboro, 811-755, over GOPer Matthew Plache. The victory by Desmaris was a surprise because Trump carried the district by seven points in 2016, and it is a seat that Democrats have never won.

..........................
This is a local photo:

The New Hampshire Democratic Party released a statement that celebrated their historic victory:


If Iím the Republican Party, Iím looking at this result combined with very close race in the Montana special House election, and the Democrat leading the special election in Georgia, and I am very worried. Republicans lost a seat tonight that they have never lost before. It is looking more and more like the New Hampshire wonít be their only historic defeat in 2017.

The Resistance is real, and the results are beginning to show as Democrats have flipped their first seat of the Trump presidency.

1. Good news

And good news in that NY race (Saladino's seat).

But I have to say, I'm still nowhere convinced. I'm waiting for a flip in a really red (Southern or perhaps Mid-West) state. (Hear me Georgia??)

If it comes there, then we will sufficiently frighten republicans on the fence to see action.

5. Voting Makes a Difference

The most effective counter to the corporate influence in our government is voting. We can make a difference and voting is the key.

6. Ossoff is ahead in polls too. I gave him $5 last night.

There's a four for one match, so if you donate to him now, he gets a bunch.

10. They say "all politics is local".....



One of the best ways to assure accountability in Government is to elect Local candidates that will address issues important to one's life. Then that trickles upwards to the Federal levels eventually.

If Democrats flip the Georgia-6 and Montana in the coming weeks, that sends a signal to the GOP that they are in serious trouble come 2018.
