Do we see a pattern here?

A lot can happen between now and the first Tuesday in November. But first this bit of news out of The Politico :

Democrats picked up a northern Mississippi House seat in one of the most conservative-minded districts in the country tonight — an upset victory that will carry significant ramifications into the November elections.

With 370 of 462 precincts reporting, the Democratic nominee, Prentiss County Chancery Clerk Travis Childers, leads Republican Greg Davis, 51 to 49 percent. The Associated Press has called the race for Childers.

The victory marks the Democrats’ third straight special election pickup in as many months, and is poised to hurt the Republican party’s already-flagging morale and prompt a new round of finger-pointing among the already fractured GOP caucus.

The first Special Election was for Denny Hastert’s old seat. Was in Republican hands for over 30 years.

A Dem won.

The second Special Election was in the Baton Rouge area of Louisiana. In Repub hands for over 20 consecutive years.

A Dem won.

And Yesterday a Special Election in Mississippi for a seat that was in Republican hands for 13 years.

A Dem won
