The CT special state senate election. Definitely a sliver lining.

The Democrat, Greg Cava? This was his second time running. He had run for this same seat once before, in the November election. And he got his clock cleaned. In November’s election, the 32nd District went 66-34 for the Republican State Senate candidate.

Yesterday, it went for the Republican again… 55-45. That's an eleven point swing. Eleven points.


So between now and the next election we work for only a 5+ swing!!!!!

1. It's actually not an 11 point swing

It was a 32 point victory in November, now it was a 10 point victory. A 22 point swing. District has not voted for a Democrat since 1891. Yes, that's 1891, not 1981.

The NRA and an in-state pro GOP PAC put money into the race as well.

2. I know it seems weird to feel good about a loss, but that's excellent.

We've got to pay attention to those things and capitalize on them.
