Progressive electoral victories you don't hear about

The elections to fill seats left open by Tromp's Cabinet appointments are all one hears about in corporate media, and they are the ones progressives lost. And yet according to John Nichols the progressives are making headway in several other races, some of which are in deep red territory that went for Tromp. We need to inform others of these victories to build confidence that bold progressives can and will win in 2018. Corporate media is trying to quash that hope by only reporting on progressive losses. See the link for details. E.g, some of the progressive victories:

Chokwe Antar Lumumba as Mayor of Jackson, Mississippi;  Lawrence Kasner for District Attorney in Philadelphia; Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx in Chicago; Orange-Osceola State Attorney Aramis Ayala in Orlando, Florida; Natalie Vowell won a citywide school-board seat in St. Louis; Dylan Parker was elected to the City Council of Rock Island, Illinois; khalid kamau was elected to the City Council of South Fulton, Georgia; Tony Evers won a statewide nonpartisan race for Superintendent of Public Instruction in Wisconsin; New York special-election winner, elementary-school teacher and union activist Christine Pellegrino.
