Democrats Abroad summarized the November 7 election results. 21 elections won by Our Revolution candidates! The Nation called it a big win and sees some lessons to be learned. (Like having a positive agenda, and not just being against something.)
Democrats, Populists, and Socialists — oh my! — cheered The Intercept:
A CIVIL RIGHTS attorney who delights in suing the police is the new district attorney in Philadelphia. A democratic socialist shocked an incumbent Republican in Virginia. A black woman who prosecuted a white cop for shooting a black teenager was re-elected as prosecutor. Three months after Charlottesville, a black lieutenant governor was elected in Virginia. A transgender woman who focused on traffic problems knocked out a longtime culture warrior who focused on bathrooms. A criminal justice reformer flipped the Washington stateSenate to Democrats. A wet bag of mulch beat a race-baiting lobbyist in Virginia by a stunning nine points. Maine voters expanded Medicaid. Long-held Republican seats in Georgia flipped in a special election. New Jersey, finished with Gov. Chris Christie, elected a Democrat in a landslide.
Here are all the current 2017 OR-endorsed candidates with elections coming up, and here are all the wins we’ve had this year.
