Democrat wins special election in Trump heartland Missouri
The Dem-ocrats have won a Missouri special election on Tuesday for a state house seat in a district that President Donald Trump won in a landslide victory during the presidential election.The win in Missouri was the latest for the Democrats, who in their anti-Trump attitude have won several special election victories in areas around the country, including in Wisconsin and Alabama. However, Republicans have also easily won three other state house seats in Missouri on Tuesday and still have a supermajority, the ability to override a governor’s veto, in the chamber. Democratic Mike Revis defeated Republican David Linton by 3 points for the District 97 state representative seat in the Missouri House, a district Trump won by 28 points, according to the Missouri Secretary of State website. Democrats have flipped 35 contested seats, since Trump’s inauguration, the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee claimed.
