A sign of things to come, at last? The voters in Staunton, Virginia, yesterday tossed from office three Democrat incumbent city council members, making that city council now all Republican.
All three had been on the council for years, since 08, 10, and 12, so these were not new faces. They had been well established, and are now gone,
This in a city that voted twice for Barack Obama, once for Hillary Clinton, and also for black-face-loving, gun-control loving Democratic Governor Ralph Northram. Moreover, the defeated Democrats actually got twice as many votes as during the last election, but were still soundly defeated by a much larger opposition.
In addition, another nearby city, Waynesboro, Republicans gained two seats on the city council, giving the Republicans a council majority.
I wonder what events recently might have raised the ire of the voters? Can anyone make a guess?
