Fun fact: If we won every district won by Crist, Hillary, or Obama, we’d have a 66-54 majority in the State House. Part of that is due to Crist’s overperformance in Tampa Bay, but certainly not all of it.
Erie County, in very-upstate western New York, has a population of close to a million people and includes the city of Buffalo and the surrounding region. It has a County Executive, currently a Democrat, and an eleven-person county legislature, each member of which is elected by district biennially. Right now, there’s a 6-5 split in the legislature favoring Republicans, and the elections are this coming Tuesday for all 11 seats.
This year, Democratic parties across the country grow and rebuild after Republican shellacking in 2010, 2014, 2016. Yet in Georgia, Democrats have yet to score a victory in recent special elections following defeat in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District and a loss in State Senate District 22.
On Oct. 3rd we have an excellent shot at winning Albuquerque, New Mexico’s mayoral seat with Democratic State Auditor Tim Keller.
