3/6 of the Democrats wins have been in Oklahoma this year.

Are they all in Tulsa/OKC big city areas? Or is it more spread out in rural areas as well?

I remember them coming super close in a rural seat, but I think all of the wins have been in the cities.

The Hattiesburg Post‏ @HattiesburgPost
With all precincts reporting, Ferraez 293, McGee 1,359, Mercier 685, Rehner 762.

Looks like it will be McGee (GOP) and Rehner (DEM) in the runoff.

Checking Ballotopdia Zyzz gives us:

https://cdn.ballotpedia.org/images/9/9e/OK_HD_028.JPG

OK HD 28

https://cdn.ballotpedia.org/images/6/6c/OK_SD_44.JPG

OK SD 44

https://cdn.ballotpedia.org/images/8/88/OK_HD_075.JPG

OK HD 75

https://cdn.ballotpedia.org/images/8/86/OK_HD_046.JPG

OK HD 46, which was tonight.

They all appear to be relatively close to the cities, and are at least anchored by an urban /suburban core. Even HD 28 which dems barely lost is close to Oklahoma City.

Apparently Rosecrants lost OK HD 46 in 2016 with 39.6% of the vote, so tonight's result reflects a 20.8% swing in favor of Democrats.

With those kinds of swings, I'd say Democrats have a nonzero chance of taking the Governor's mansion next year.

Honestly, what could kill the GOP next year on the state level is lack of turnout among the base. We've already seen that in other state legislature special elections (the one I can think of off the top of my head is Pellegrino in NY), and if the trend continues you could start seeing 10-15 point swings.

NH tonight is also kinda reassuring because even though Clinton's numbers really dropped off from Obama in 2012, the Dem candidate still won with a similar margin to Obama. That might be taking too much analysis out of the result, but basically it could mean that the large swings to Trump in formerly Dem districts isn't permanent.

And (if there is one, I kind of hope the nomination is stalled until at least January), might the Bridenstine Special Election be competitive?

From 2009-2016, the usual pattern was that Dems would fail colossally in special elections. The talk was about how much (insert R candidate here) outperformed McCain or Romney, or how Ds never turned out for specials. This year's special elections have been an amazing sea change from that pattern.

Well, interesting: Democrats won yesterday Trump's districts in New Hampshire and Oklahoma, but got less then a quatrer of votes and barely made a runoff in Mississippi's very swingy (on Presidential level) district. Either Democratic candidate was very bad, or Republican candidates were unusually good (and, in fact, McGee seems to be a Cochran-type pragmatic conservative, not McDaniel-type extremist, who actively participated in campaigns of her predeccessor, who was one of the most pragmatic Republicans in Legislature, and was convincingly elected as mayor of majority-Black city).

MS jungle primaries are non-partisan, so voters can't tell who the Democrat is and who the Republicans are. If there had been three Democrats and one Republican in the primary, the situation might have been reversed.

This is misleading, though, because New Hampshire has way more seats in its legislature than any other state to begin with.

What is sad and pathetic is that these are only the TOP state losses.  Obama wiped out Democrats the way Eisenhower wiped out Republicans in 1958.  It took Republicans until 1994 to even be competitive again at the state and local level.

The flips of southern legislatures was, long term, an inevitability that preceded Obama. Tennessee, Oklahoma and Mississippi were already close in 2008.

1958 was a generational wipeout, rather than structural issues coming home to roost a la 2010

I wasn't just the southern legislatures in 2010.  It was "blue" states like Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin and swing ones like Ohio and North Carolina where Dems also got killed.
