  • One Tweet Shows How Far Dems Have Fallen Under Obama

    The damage the Obama presidency has done to Democrats in Congress and state legislatures has been widely reported on over the last 7 years, but, until Wednesday, no one had summed it up in just 140 characters (or less).

    Republican operative Rory Cooper tied a bow on Democrats’ fall from grace with a Tweet that simply tallied up the losses.

    “Under President Obama, Democrats have lost 900+ state legislature seats, 12 governors, 69 House seats, 13 Senate seats,” Cooper tweeted. “That’s some legacy.”

    Republicans expanded on 2014 mid-term gains at the state level in elections around the country Tuesday, holding control of the Virginia and New York senates, maintaining majorities in both Mississippi houses and picking up seats in Pennsylvania.

    And in a surprise win, Republican businessman Matt Bevin handily defeated Democratic Attorney General Jack Conway for the governor’s seat in Kentucky. Bevin’s win makes a total of 12 Republican governor pick-ups since Obama took office. (RELATED: Democrats Say ‘Trump-Mania’ Contributed To Kentucky Loss)

    Republicans took control of a record 67 state chambers in the 2014 mid-term elections, and continue to control both chambers in 23 states. Democrats have complete control of just seven. And Republicans of course hold majorities in Congress, where Democrats hold just 44 Senate seats and 188 House seats.
