2017: Dems win US Senate seat in Alabama; sweep statewide offices in VA & NJ.— Hakeem Jeffries (@RepJeffries) November 8, 2019
2018: We take back the House, flip 7 governorships and almost 400 state legislative seats.
2019: Dems win in Kentucky, VA and Penn; GOP Gov in KY goes down in flames.
2020: Can’t Stop. Won’t Stop.
In fact, the Dem guv nominee got fewer votes than ex Ag secretary Mike Espy got running for Senate against Cindy Hyde Smith in 2018. Msg for Dems. choice (hello Kentucky gov and Alabama Sen) and putting resources in matter. pic.twitter.com/2SappKC7OR— Joy Reid (@JoyAnnReid) November 7, 2019
Virginia is totally blue, Kentucky has a Dem gov—even coal country went blue. Does that mean Trump should be scared? Yep. PLUS why Black women stay solidly with the Dems?

Democrat Andy Beshear claimed victory in the Kentucky governor's race but GOP Gov. Matt Bevin said he won't concede. Dems won full control of Virginia House and Senate. Republicans held onto the governor's office in Mississippi. @ForecasterEnten analyzeshttps://t.co/IKqiHKlkQp pic.twitter.com/YqLrQt2XPv— New Day (@NewDay) November 6, 2019
One final wrap up:— Jamie Dupree (@jamiedupree) November 6, 2019
+ Dems lead Gov Bevin (R) in Kentucky by 4700 votes. (Bevin won't concede)
+ Dems win both houses of Virginia legislature for the first time since 1993
+ Republicans at this hour seem likely to win the Governor's race in Mississippi.
Four years ago, some liberal activists made the exact same argument (downballot Dems outdoing Conway) for the 2015 kentucky gov race.— Matthew Isbell 🦃 (@mcimaps) November 11, 2019

Roles reverse. Repeat same talking point. https://t.co/I2d8xqAQpc
