GOP Marks 60th State Special Election Victory Since Nov. 2008

Republicans across the country marked a significant milestone, last night, with the 59th and 60th state legislative special election victories since President Barack Obama was elected President.  The two wins took place in Virginia House Districts 26 and 27 as Republicans Tony Wilt and Roxann Robinson handily defeated Democrats in the races to fill those seats.

In addition to the fact that Republicans have now won 60 special elections since November 2008, 13 of those victories were in legislative seats previously held by Democrats.  Continuing this special-election momentum, the RSLC’s REDistricting MAjority Project (REDMAP) will be identifying state legislative seats that will have a dramatic effect on 2011 redistricting and dedicating resources to win those seats.
