Your DGB for this weekend is to help elect a Democratic senator in Mississippi.
Yes, we said Mississippi. Yes, it’s the reddest of the red. Does that mean we shouldn’t try? An emphatic DGB “NO.” Trump won PA-18 by 20 points in the 2016 election and Conor Lamb just flipped the district blue. Alabama hadn’t elected a Democratic senator since 1986 before Doug Jones won the special election back in December. Trump carried the state in 2016 with 73.4% of the vote. Something is happening in this country and no Republican seat is safe.
David Baria looks like a promising candidate.
You never know, after this victory, maybe we can start thinking about how to wipe that idiotic confederate section off the Mississippi state flag.
