According to FiveThirtyEight, Democrats are overperforming in the special elections, and Rafter, a veteran’s pro-choice policies, stood out as one of the main reasons he won so smoothly. Other issues include harsh and damaging anti-LGBTQ laws, book bans, etc.

The GOP will continue to operate in the minority in the Pennsylvania statehouse after Democrat Lindsay Powell defeated Republican Erin Connolly Autenreith. Democrats hold a slim majority, but that’s only because Republicans lost 12 seats in Pennsylvania Statehouse in the 2022 elections.

New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu will not be asking for reelection, he confirmed on X. The governor and Never Trump Republican enjoys popularity for his moderate yet conservative views, and his decision leaves room for the state to grow from purple to blue.

ABC News shared that according to Daily Kos Elections, “the correlation between special-election results and the House popular vote has been strong since at least the 1989-90 cycle — though, importantly, there have been some exceptions, like 1997-98.”

While they could show a current trend, early polling focuses on registered voters, not actual voters. Democrats have reasons to be optimistic, but the race for the 2024 elections has yet to fully start.

Chairman of the House Democrats Victory Campaign Committee, Laura Telerski, reacted to the victory, “The results in the towns of Northwood and Nottingham speak for themselves: Granite Staters resoundingly reject Republican extremism and are motivated to vote for change in record numbers.” The Democrat continued, “House Democrats have won eight of the last nine specials, and this red-to-blue flip is another step towards reclaiming control of the New Hampshire House.”

Pennsylvania winner was also moderately optimistic

Powell, who works for local nonprofit InnovatePGH, commented: “Our district is made up of hardworking families that deserve someone who will fight in Harrisburg to deliver good jobs, dignified pay, safe housing, strong schools, and beautiful community assets.”
