Kentucky shocker: Democrat wins special election

I thought this election was such a lost cause for the Democrats that it wasn't even on the radar screen.

Yesterday, in a special election for the Kentucky House in rural southern Kentucky, Democrat Terry Mills defeated Republican Leo Johnson by about 9%.

This must particularly perturb the GOP, because the seat had been held by the Republicans for years. Every county in the district has gone GOP in every presidential election since at least 2000.

Following this election, the Democrats now control the Kentucky House 65 to 35 - but sometimes ya wouldn't know it!

Hopefully, Mills isn't just another DLCer.
