Dem gains put Sunbelt in play for 2020


BY LISA HAGEN - 11/18/18 10:30 AM EST

Democrats made major gains across the Sunbelt in the midterm elections, changing the political landscape in states like Arizona and Nevada ahead of the 2020 elections.

The party netted many of those gains by winning over Republicans in the suburbs and aggressively courting minority voters, a coalition that could spell trouble in southwestern states for President Trump's reelection prospects and Republicans protecting their Senate majority.

In Arizona, Rep. Kyrsten Sinemaís became the first Democrat to win a Senate seat in more than three decades in a state that Trump narrowly won in 2016, while the party also gained a majority of the stateís congressional delegation.

In Nevada, Democrats tightened their grip on the purple state by picking up a Senate seat, a handful of statewide races and the governorís mansion for the first time since 1994.

Meanwhile, Democrats made significant House gains in the GOP strongholds of Texas and southern California.

1. Some people want to dump Perez.

But when it comes to republican officeholders, that guy is a quiet assassin. I like his style and I like how he quietly organize on the local level, letting locals that know their state run campaigns.

2. We need bigger and better Hispanic outreach

I know that many are anti abortion Catholics, but they should be with us on most other issues.
