    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.
