4.) Mississippi Sweep

Mississippi may be dark red, but Democrats remain more competitive at the state level thanks to a large African American population and running moderate candidates.

In the governor’s race, the Democrat, outgoing Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood, was the best candidate the party could have hoped for. Hood is not only pro-life and pro-gun, but he had also won statewide elections four times, something that has become increasingly rare for Democrats in the Deep South.

But on Tuesday Republican Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves won the race for governor by nearly six points.

Republicans swept all eight statewide races for the first time since reconstruction, including the races for lieutenant governor, attorney general, and secretary of state.

Despite already having a supermajority in both legislative chambers, the GOP picked up three seats in the state Senate. 

Per the Mississippi Clarion Ledger:
 

“We won it all, didn’t we?” a jubilant outgoing Republican Gov. Phil Bryant told a crowd at an election-night party for Gov.-elect Tate Reeves and other statewide winners in Jackson. “They even brought in Obama … We made America great again.”

Despite making a red state even redder we don’t expect the mainstream media to pick up this story. Help us make it go viral!
