Carolyn Fiddler, a former Democratic statehouse operative and current political editor for Daily Kos says, "Those eight Democratic pickups are a significant percentage of the 27 total state and congressional special elections held in Republican seats this cycle — almost 30 percent, actually. If Democrats were to flip 30 percent of Republican-held congressional seats in 2018, the House GOP caucus would lose 72 of its members. Republicans haven't picked up a single seat in a contested Democrat-vs.-Republican special election this year." Interesting comments and extra motivation for Democrats!
