In special elections on Tuesday, Democrats in Oklahoma and New Hampshire won state legislative seats vacated by Republicans in districts President Trump won by double digits.

In New Hampshire, Democratic small-business owner Charles St. Clair beat Republican Steve Whalley, 55 percent to 45 percent, for a state House seat that Trump won by 19 points last November. Democrats last held the seat in 2012, and Republicans had a 12-point party registration advantage.

In Oklahoma, meanwhile, Democratic school teacher Jacob Rosecrants beat Republican Darin Chambers, 60 percent to 40 percent, in state House District 46, a district Trump won by 11 points and where Republicans have nearly 3,000 more registered voters.

2. BIG WIN

with a winning message

[H]e was surprised by the lack of enthusiasm of the teacher community after he declared his candidature. He added even if he opened up to all the Democrats most of his volunteers are former Bernie Sanders’ supporters.

“I don’t listen to corporates, I don’t even listen to my own party, I listen to the people,” he said. “I want you to tell me what you want.”
