Alabama special election: A resounding victory for Democrats

And it continues. Despite opinion polls that are not always reassuring for Joe Biden, Democrats continue to reap victories in special elections. They continued their streak of success Tuesday night in a special election held in a swing district for a seat in the Alabama House of Representatives. They took that seat from Republicans and have once again demonstrated the weight of reproductive rights as a campaign issue since the ruling was overturned Roe v. Wade In June 2022.

In a district she beat by 7 percentage points in 2022, Democrat Marilyn Landes won. She won Trump received 63% of the votes compared to 37% for his Republican rival, which represents a shift of 33 percentage points compared to his defeat two years ago. She campaigned to defend abortion and in vitro fertilization rights at risk due to the Alabama Supreme Court's decision to grant frozen embryos the status of humans.

“Today, the women and families of Alabama sent a clear message that will be heard in Montgomery and across the country.” Announce Lands in a statement Tuesday evening. “Our Legislature must repeal Alabama’s no-exception abortion ban, fully restore access to IVF, and protect the right to contraception.”

The lands would represent a district in northeast Alabama with an electorate that is wealthier and more educated than the state average. However, Donald Trump narrowly beat Joe Biden in 2020.
