Republican Success Under the Radar
I’ve never really paid too much attention to County Commissioner races.
Here’s what the now-ubiquitous red/blue map looked like at 7:00 am on November 8.
Aaaaaand here’s what it looked like 13 hours later.
So a few things jump out at me.
1. Yeah, I know we lost Montco, and that sucks, but a thoroughly dysfunctional county committee will do that to you. It’s not like we didn’t see this coming.
2. We’ve FINALLY cracked the nut out west. Lawrence, Mercer, Westmoreland, and
Murtha Cambria Counties are in Republican hands for the first time in ages, and it’s due to painstaking work by the grassroots. It can be done.
3. What the hell is going on in Cameron County? Knock it off.
4. A tie? Really? Only in Pennsylvania.
So it might not have been the best night, but it was still pretty damn good.
Clouds, silver linings, and all that.
