You may not know this, but there was a very special “special election” in Kentucky, and Republicans won YUGE.
A Kentucky Republican flipped a longtime blue-state House seat red on Tuesday.
House District 99 that has been blue for 33 years is now a lovely shade of conservative red.
GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel and President Donald Trump celebrated the win on Twitter.
Ronna wrote: “BIG WIN in Kentucky House District 99. It’s a district Democrats held for 33 YEARS, where Democrats outnumber Republicans by double digits, and one the Democrat governor carried in 2019. But tonight, Republicans flipped the seat!”
BIG WIN in Kentucky House District 99.
It’s a district Democrats held for 33 YEARS, where Democrats outnumber Republicans by double digits, and one the Democrat governor carried in 2019.
But tonight, Republicans flipped the seat!

And President Trump wrote: “Big Story, Big Win – Except in the Fake News, which won’t cover it!”

Republican Richard White won the open seat for House District 99. Rocky Adkins formerly held it.
Adkins, a Democrat, held the district since the 1980s. He is now serving as senior advisor to Governor Andy Beshear, D-Kentucky.
House District 99 represents voters in Rowan, Elliott, and Lewis counties.

This is really great news.
It shows Dems don’t have “excitement or en energy” if they can’t hold a seat that they’ve had for 33 years.
It’s the same thing we’ve seen during the Dem primaries. Low and unenthusiastic turnout.
Great news for Republicans in our quest to win back the House!
