 As the election postmortem fight begins, Democratic leaders are consoling themselves with the narrative that Florida was already lost.

Last call to help: State legislatures most likely to flip

In 2010, while Democrats completely focused on national races, the GOP—along with dark money from the Koch brothers and others—poured millions into the state legislative races. As a result, Democrats lost 21 legislative chambers with devastating consequences. States were turned into conservative meth labs that went after women’s rights, healthcare, education funding, and voting rights. Since it was also…
