Democrats the big winners in 2017 state, local elections

(Worthy News) – Democrats came out victorious in several of Tuesday’s key elections, including gubernatorial races in Virginia and New Jersey, leaving the party motivated for the upcoming 2018 election.

“The America that Donald Trump comes back to in a few days is far different than the America he left,” DNC Chairman Tom Perez said Tuesday night, referencing President Trump’s absence as he visits Asia. “It’s an America where we are regaining our values.”

“The last time Democrats won the governors race in Virginia and New Jersey, in the same year, was 2005,” Perez added. “You know what we did the following year? We took the House of Representatives! That’s what we’re going to do next year.” [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More…) ]
