Fundraising jubilation aside, this is a race that was already leaning Democrat

Not including his 2016 election, when he ran unopposed, Dem. Curt Hanson won his 3 previous elections by an average margin of 10 percentage points.  In yesterday's special election, the Democrat Phil Miller defeated Republican Travis Harris by 10 percentage points.

Welcome to hyperbole.

Subject line:  Massive DEFEAT for Trump!
