Democrats flipped a GOP-held Florida state House seat on Tuesday, handing the party its 36th state legislative pickup nationwide since Donald Trump won the presidency. Republicans continue to control both of Florida’s legislative chambers. Last Tuesday, the party picked up a Missouri House seat in an exurban St. Louis district that Trump had won. And last month, Democrats flipped a state Senate seat in a rural stretch of Wisconsin that went heavily for Trump. The party lost about 1,000 state legislative seats from 2009 to 2016.
