    Oklahoma Democrat Flips Yet Another GOP-held Seat
    Tuesday’s Win Marks Third Democratic Special Election Pickup in Three States in Just Over a Month

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee Executive Director Michael Sargeant lauded the latest Democratic special election victory that flipped a previously Republican-held statehouse seat into Democratic hands. On Tuesday, Oklahoma Democrat Cyndi Munson won election to HD-85 with 53.8 percent of the vote. This pickup comes on the heels of the August 4 special election victory of Leanne Krueger-Braneky in Pennsylvania HD-161 and Taylor Bennett’s August 11 win in Georgia HD-80.

    “This third Democratic pickup of a GOP-held seat since the beginning of August indicates a pattern of Democratic successes that we expect will continue not only into the fall in key states like Virginia, but also into next year in battlegrounds nationwide," said Sargeant.

  • Georgia: Democrat Taylor Bennett picks off GOP-held House Seat

    In a race that the Atlanta Journal-Constitution said "should be a gimme putt for Republicans," the result was anything but. The Chamblee Post explains:

    Democrat Taylor Bennett has defeated Republican J Max Davis in the hotly contested House District 80 Special Election Runoff.

    Bennett, who was the top vote getter in the four candidate July 14th Special Election, carried that momentum into the two-person runoff. Bennett’s momentum, fueled by what he called “an incredible team effort” carried him through to once again receive the most votes and win the House District 80 State Representative Seat.

    This is the second consecutive week in which Democrats have won a previously-Republican legislative seat in back-to-back upset victories. On August 4th, Democrat Leanne Krueger-Braneky picked up Pennsylvania's 161st House District; attorney and former Georiga Tech quarterback Taylor Bennett has now picked up Georgia's 80th District. Both seats were heavily gerrymandered to favor Republicans, with Bennett's district favoring Republican Mitt Romney by more than 13 points in 2012.
