Analysis | A Republican won in Kansas. But here’s why the GOP is not celebrating.

So proud of the work of Djuan Wash and his entire team in Kansas during this special election. Trump won this district by +27 points and last night, Djuan and his team brought their Democratic candidate, Jim Thompson, within 7 points. That’s a +20 point swing in less than 5 months!

“Thompson’s 7-point loss should have Republicans across the country very worried. Estes performed 20 points worse than Trump did in this district just five months ago. In 2018, Republicans will be defending 23 seats that Clinton won. If Democrats can net 24 seats, they would recapture the majority.”
