2017 Special Elections...


Recommended Posts

Thought we could use a thread about the special elections that'll be happening in the next weeks and months.  First up, the Kansas 4th District.  Live results are here:

The Democratic candidate is winning, but it's only 1% of the precincts reporting so it doesn't mean anything this early.

Also, the thing to watch about the KS district are the counties.  Trump won every county in that district last year.  The closest county was Sedgwick, which Trump won 56-37%.  That's also the largest county in the district.  If it starts tilting Democratic, it could be a close outcome.  If it goes red, I doubt it'll be close.

I think these are early votes still. SoS site still seems the best for latest results.

Looks like more precincts are trickling in from other counties.  Waiting to see more results from Sedgwick, myself.  I agree with you that Estes is likely to win.  I just hope Dems can make it a squeaker.

I do not agree with this take. I think it was smart not to get involved and let the grassroots do its thing. DCCC/DNC getting involved could have been a negative, plus I think the special elections are good tests for the midterm election. 

That's a great point.  People don't realize that in these types of areas, the national party getting involved can cause a backlash. It would be like running ads featuring Nancy Pelosi in Alabama.  It won't get the reaction they think.

I can only conclude WFW hacked Trouts account. Awaiting to see if Trout starts referring to himself in 3rd person and telling stories about how he once met Edward James Olmos at a truck stop in Reno and gave him life advice that became the foundation of everything he knows today. :ninja:

Oh yeah, like you blend.  Troutsky is just saying, jack.

I still think the penchant for dems to coalesce in cities just drives the gross number of seats realisticly available to them to much smaller numbers than their GOP counterparts. (And you end up with a bunch of unknown names) Got to strike while the Trump iron is hot.
