DLCC Racks Up Even More Special Election Wins
Democrats Borer and McCrory Triumph in Connecticut Special Elections
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Tonight Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee Executive Director Jessica Post celebrated the victories of Democrats Dorinda Keenan Borer and Douglas McCrory in special elections for Connecticut House District 115 and Senate District 2.
“Congratulations to Rep.-elect Borer and Sen.-elect McCrory on their successes in today’s elections,” said Post. “These talented candidates with strong commitments to public service have brought the list of Democratic electoral victories to five in the scant six weeks Trump has been in the White House. DLCC is thrilled by these latest victories, which are just the latest expression of Democrats’ level of energy and engagement as voters reject Trump’s GOP and fight Republicans’ extreme and bigoted agenda on all fronts.”
These victories are just the latest in a series of Democratic successes in recent state legislative elections. Last fall, Democrats flipped majority control of the New Mexico House, Nevada Assembly, Nevada Senate, and Alaska House. Since November, Democrats have won special elections in the Iowa House, Iowa Senate, Virginia House, Virginia Senate, and Delaware Senate.
