The Republican Party in Kentucky flipped a state House seat in a special election this week, earning praise from President Trump.

 

Preliminary results in District 99 showed Republican Richard White defeating Democrat Bill Redwine on Tuesday by around 1,000 votes, the Courier-Journal reported.

The seat had previously been held by Democrats for more than three decades, the latest being Rocky Adkins, who took a post in Gov. Matt Beshear’s Cabinet.

GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel and Trump celebrated a win in the local Kentucky election.

“It’s a district Democrats held for 33 YEARS, where Democrats outnumber Republicans by double digits, and one the Democrat governor carried in 2019,” McDaniel said.

This is the heading

Trump called it a “big story.”

‘Big Win – Except in the Fake News, which won’t cover it!’ Trump tweeted.

The Democrats held onto another stronghold in District 67, according to unofficial results.
