Dems flip a NH state House seat Republicans have held since it was established
Republican freakout in 3… 2… 1…
New Hampshire Democrats flipped a state House seat in a district that Donald Trump won by 7% in 2016. No Democrat had ever won the district before, and the victory is the first seat in the country at any level to flip from red to blue after the election of Trump.
Democrat Edie DesMarais wins Carroll County seat in Wolfeboro, 811-755, over GOPer Matthew Plache. The victory by Desmaris was a surprise because Trump carried the district by seven points in 2016, and it is a seat that Democrats have never won.
Just how Republican is Wolfeboro?
Go to Politicus USA to find out. It goes without saying that Republicans up to the national level expected a win and got, well, Trumped!
