Kentucky: The Republican governor was deeply flawed and still came close. On the other hand, down ballot candidate Heather French Henry came reasonably close for the Democrats. Keep it up. Run candidates in the legislature. Help them.
Mississippi: As Mississippi there is a chance here. In these races, African American turnout was not so great, but turnout in Memphis suburbs was good. Get both of those happening, there is a chance for Democratic victories here. Run candidates in the legislature. Help them.
Both the Senate and the House of Delegates were flipped. This bodes well for the future. If Virginia can deal with the embarrassment at the highest levels of government. Focus on 2020 and 2021. North Carolina may be next.
