The Trump effect: Democrats flip a seat in Missouri State Senate

From a 22.6 percentage point deficit in 2016 to a 19.4 percentage victory margin in this week's special election

Republicans have lost the first election in Missouri since Eric Greitens resigned the governor’s post in disgrace, with Democrat Lauren Arthur picking up a state senate seat in the Kansas City suburbs. 
With 100 percent of precincts reporting, Arthur had defeated Republican Kevin Corlew — a fellow state legislator — by 19 points. That represented a sizable swing toward Democrats in the 17th district, which backed both Donald Trump and Mitt Romney by 4 points.
