DNC Chair Tom Perez Statement on Democratic Victories in Oklahoma and New Hampshire
Last night, Democrats flipped seats in two state House races in Oklahoma and New Hampshire, where the DNC’s Resistance Summer efforts have helped mobilize voters and energize grassroots organizing. DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement:
“Congratulations to Jacob Rosecrants and Charlie St. Clair on their victories last night. The 31-point swing in Oklahoma and 28-point swing in New Hampshire — both deep-red districts that Trump carried by 11 and 16 points respectively in November — are just the latest examples of how voters have lost faith in the Republican Party and are hungry for Democratic leadership.
“Our candidates have now flipped six seats since Trump took office, and as long as we continue organizing and mobilizing across the country we’ll be unstoppable. When Democrats lead with our values, we can win in any zip code from the school board to the Oval Office.”
