Democrats have flipped 39 seats since Donald Trump became president, six of those coming this year alone.

Tuesday night saw two more Democrats flip Republican legislative seats, bringing the total since President Donald Trump's election to 39 -- six of them this just this year.

Democrat Phil Spagnuolo won a special election in New Hampshire's Belknap County District 3 on Tuesday night 968-841 (54%-46%).

Democrat Phil Young won a contest in Connecticut's state House District 120 as well, a seat that had been held by Republicans for 40 years.

The Democratic flips tonight add to a string of recent victories for the party in state legislative races. Last week, Democrat Linda Belcher won back her seatin Kentucky’s state House District 49, which had favored Trump by nearly 50 points. It was the 37th legislative flip since Trump’s inauguration and the fourth this year, following a win by Margaret Good in Florida’s 72nd District the previous week. There have been additional flips in Missouri and Wisconsin earlier this year as well.
