The Democratic National Committee is crowing about their victory in the special election to replace Congressman Robert Wexler in Florida’s 19th district. “With their votes, Floridians also said ‘no’ to the Party of No,” said DNC Chairman Tim Kaine, as quoted by the Washington Post.
Now, the Republicans have definitely blown a few winnable special elections to the House since Barack Obama has been president. But this isn’t one of them. This is a very Democratic district which Obama and John Kerry both won with 66 percent of the vote. Wexler never won less than 66 percent. Democrat Ted Deutch won with 62 percent, a slight drop-off despite outraising Republican Ed Lynch $1.35 million to $103,000. This was never a winnable race for Republicans.
