Dem defeats Trump delegate in Florida state Senate special election

The Democratic candidate in a Florida state Senate special election overwhelmingly defeated her GOP opponent, a delegate for President Trump during the 2016 election.

Democrat Lori Berman easily won the special election in the state's 31st district with 74.8 percent of the vote. Republican Tami Donnally earned about 25.2 percent with nearly all precincts reporting, according to Florida Division of Elections.

“This is a win for the people of Palm Beach County on the issues that matter to us,” Berman, a current state lawmaker, said, according to the Palm Beach Post.

“It’s a mandate that the issues we see — education, gun control, health care, the environment — matter to people of Palm Beach County,” she continued.

Donnally, the vice chair of the Palm Beach County Republican Party and a 2016 delegate for Trump, told the Post that she was “disappointed” that more Republicans didn’t turn out to vote. ...

Hillary Clinton easily won the district during the 2016 election with 61 percent of the vote. The seat is generally held by Democrats.

It's not worth a thread of its own, but there was also a special election today to fill the Iowa Senate District 25 seat.

In the Florida election, a Democrat was elected to replace a Democrat who resigned. In a heavily Democratic district, the Democratic candidate resoundingly won.

In the Iowa election, a Republican was elected to replace a Republican who resigned. Registered Republicans outnumber Democrats 2-1 in the district and Trump carried the district by 26 percent. This election is worth mentioning because today the Republican won 56% to the Democrat's 44%. Not bad in a heavily Republican district.

One Berman closes, another one opens. :daydream:


Mr. William L. Bryan is the root of a great deal of criminal mischief. And yet, Mr. Bryan remains at large.
