It’s official! Architect of Obamacare repeal swept away by blue wave

It’s official! Democrat Andy Kim has turned New Jersey’s 3rd Congressional District blue, unseating the architect of the Obamacare repeal, Tom MacArthur. Kim had declared victory last Wednesday, after thousands of mailed-in ballots swung the election pretty decidedly in his direction. For his part, MacArthur seemed to hope that some of that Republican after-the-fact voter suppression might help his chances. But nothing could save New Jersey’s Republicans as the blue wave has now given Dems an 11-1 delegation in the state.

Tom MacArthur is best remembered for coming up with the insane Republican Trumpcare plan, and then literally running away from reporters asking him about it.
