      At the Atlas of US Elections site -
      Sweetwater Co went 2 to 1 for Bush.  10,600 to 5,200.
      The only county to go for Kerry was Teton.

      Sweetwater County used to be a Dem bastion in the days of coal mining.  It's where Teno Roncalio was from.  Rock Springs was and is a wonderful mix of ethnicities.  But after the coal mines closed, Dem strength faded.  Trona mining started up in the 1960s, but only about half of the trona mines are unionized.

      It ain't the same Sweetwater County.

      PS - Just checked official Sec. of State election data.  2 to 1.

      In loving memory of Sadie, my camping, hiking & swimming friend. August 9, 1995 - January 23, 2006. She was the very best.
