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.
Oklahoma Democrats have the wind at their back. Last month, they won Oklahoma's 44th State Senate seat and Oklahoma’s 75th State House seat with decisive margins. Both Democrat victors, Senator-Elect Brooks-Jimenez and Representative-elect Gaddis centered their platforms on Oklahoma’s growing education crisis.
On the heels of winning four seats in July, Democrats are poised to seize more seats as we enter August and the second half of the year.
