Here Comes the Blue Wave

Democrats won a resounding victory yesterday in southwestern PA. The bottom left map in the graphic shows the results from the 2016 Trump/Clinton race. The upper right map shows the result of yesterday's special election for the PA House seat vacated by Marc Gergely, who was convicted of campaign finance improprieties. What's surprising here is not that the Democrat won, but the margin of victory. Also, the Republican in the race was female, so it appears that is not going to be enough on its own to win this year.
