The great Democratic gains of 2017 are sure looking even more promising in this young year. In last night’s special election for a state senate seat in northwestern Wisconsin, Democratic candidate Patty Schachtner took a seat that went 55-38 for Trump and 52-46 for Mittens and won it 55-44. That’s a remarkable transition. And don’t kid yourself, the right people are noticing.
The rundown: In 2017, Democrats running in special elections performed, on average, 10% better than Clinton and 7% better than Obama.
In the first four specials of 2018, Dems performed **21%** better than Clinton and 13% better than Obama. 🌊🌊🌊 https://t.co/qSfxkNzxUU

Governor Koch Lapdog is about to freakout over his own seat this fall. And I would like nothing more than seeing this moronic union-busting scumbag going down.
There are many forms of resistance. A very important one is making sure we all vote to get rid of the fascists. This is a great sign.
