A 12 point blowout has got to hurt…
But a 12 point blowout by a Republican in deep blue California?
That's REALLY got to hurt.
Democrat Katie Hills admits that she cried after Republican Mike Garcia flipped her CA-25 seat.
It was the first time since 1998 that a Republican flipped a House seat in California.
That's huge news, but of course, it got hardly any coverage by the mainstream media.
In a statement published on Twitter, Katie Hill admitted that she "cried for a few days."
She tweeted: "So yeah it really hurt to have my old seat flip back to Republican-for a ton of people & also for me. In fact, it was pretty fucking devastating. I went offline & cried for a few days but, as always, getting ready to stand back up & keep fighting. Hope you are too. Onward."

Hill was a rising star in the Democratic party until her reported affair with a staffer was exposed.
She was forced to resign, which is why CA-25 was up for a special election.
In short, if it weren't for Hill's scandal, it's likely that CA-25 would still be a blue seat.
But now... it is the first California House seat to flip to a Republican since 1998!
The New York Post confirms that Hill cried for days and has more details on Garcia's commanding 12 point blowout:
Former California Democrat Rep. Katie Hill admitted she “cried for a few days” after Republican Mike Garcia won last week’s election to take the seat she left in 2019, following a scandal involving her relationship with an aide.
“So yeah it really hurt to have my old seat flip back to Republican-for a ton of people & also for me. In fact, it was pretty f–king devastating,” Hill wrote on Twitter. “I went offline & cried for a few days but, as always, getting ready to stand back up & keep fighting. Hope you are too.”
Garcia, a former Navy pilot, flipped the congressional seat for California’s 25th district red for the first time since 1998. Trump lost the district by six points in 2016, but Garcia held a 12-point lead over Democrat Christy Smith, a state assemblywoman.
Trump went out of his way to promote Garcia in recent weeks as strong on guns and immigration, and some Democrats had hoped the president’s support would be a liability in the race. Former President Barack Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and other high-profile Democrats all lined up behind Smith.
Hill left the seat vacant when she resigned last year after admitting to an affair with a campaign worker and the House opened an ethics probe into an allegation that she was involved with a member of her congressional staff. Hill admitted to an “inappropriate” relationship with the staffer before she took office in 2018 but denied any romantic affair, something that would have violated House rules, and has apologized to constituents.
Democrats in the media like to point to the polls and claim that President Trump is looking "weak" heading into the November elections.
However, if CA-25 is any indication, Republicans are as fired up and ready to vote as ever!
The large government takeover and threatening of Constitutional rights has worried many law abiding citizens.
The overreach by far left mayors and governors may very well cause a backlash at the ballot box.
Less than a week after his massive 12 point victory in deep blue California, it has been confirmed that Republican Mike Garcia has been sworn in as a representative.
Local KTLA news channel confirms:
A former Navy fighter pilot who captured a California congressional district from Democrats and a state legislator who retained a Republican-held Wisconsin seat joined the House on Tuesday, buoying a GOP seeking momentum for its uphill fight for the chamber’s majority in this fall’s elections.
California’s Mike Garcia and Wisconsin’s Tom Tîffany, who won special elections last week to fill vacancies, are conservatives backed by President Donald Trump. Both will serve until Jan. 3, filling unexpired terms of lawmakers who resigned last year.
The two men stood side by side on the House floor as they were sworn into office by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. In this age of the coronavirus, they elbow-bumped afterward but did not wear face masks.
In brief remarks, Garcia said one of his goals was “to hopefully get through this crisis as a solid, unified country.” Tiffany said he wants to “advance the cause of freedom and liberty.”
Pelosi later presided at ceremonial swearing-in events for both lawmakers, most noteworthy because she briefly stood less than the recommended 6 feet (1.8 meters) away from the men and their families.
Garcia’s win came in a Los Angeles-area district that was among dozens of suburban seats that Democrats won from the GOP in 2018, catapulting them to House control. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton had carried the district by 7 percentage points in 2016, and two years later Democrat Katie Hill won the seat by 9 points.
But Garcia was elected last week by 10 points over Democrat Christy Smith, casting himself as an outsider against the state assemblywoman. He also raised about the same $2.3 million as Smith’s campaign, unusual in an election cycle in which most Democratic candidates in competitive races are collecting significantly more in contributions.
Hill resigned last year after allegations that she’d had an inappropriate relationship with an aide.
Republicans have touted Garcia’s victory as a sign that their political fortunes are improving. Rep. Tom Emmer, R-Minn., who leads the House GOP’s campaign arm, has said it means his party can win the House.
Indeed, it looks like while Democrats are attempting a SECOND impeachment attempt on President Trump, the GOP odds are slowly improving under their very noses.
Even disgraced Katie Hill is warning of a Republican uprising:
