The first time a Democrat had won the White House was in 1948.
Now, two Democrats are making their mark on a party in a party of Republicans.
As the election nears, expect the Democrats to play with fire and create an even bigger rift between the two camps than they did in 2016.
It may not be a perfect race, but it’s not an ugly one either.
It’s a fair fight.
The Democrats have their first big test of the 2018 midterms, when they face off against a GOP that is in a tailspin.
That’s not to say that this election is in any way a foregone conclusion.
In fact, the Republicans’ troubles are even more acute.
The Trump presidency is at an end and the Republican Party is facing a huge electoral blowout in 2018.
Democrats can make up ground, but there’s a lot of work ahead.
In the last few months, there has been a lot more focus on the health care law.
The GOP has already lost the support of the Republican-led House and Senate, and that could make it tougher for Republicans to take back the House.
In the Senate, Democrats will be facing a party that’s increasingly conservative and that has not voted for the GOP in years.
The Democrats are likely to win in the House, but the outcome of that race is still up in the air.
With the 2018 midterm election just a few weeks away, expect more fireworks from Democrats in the coming weeks.
