How Close is this Race?

In 2016, Clinton won HD50 by almost 13 points (53.3% to 40.8%). The incumbent Republican is well-funded but a very right wing conservative who recently lost the election for Circuit Court Clerk to a Democrat. It’s time for a Democratic fighter to represent district 50 in 2017.

Why this Race Matters most:
We need an advocate for the interests of workers vs the incumbent’s focus on corporate profits and the wealthy. With a majority Democratic electorate, this race has a strong chance of electing Democrat Lee Carter, if Democrats show up to the polls.
