Not really sure why no one else has talked about this but Jacksonville, one of the most Republican cities in America, just elected Alvin Brown, an African American Democrat, as Mayor. No recount. He won. Beat a nasty teabagger and STUNNED Republicans...

I'm stunned and proud of my city, never thought it would happen here ...

Here's the news article

UPDATE
Props to Marty M on this article - National GOP Scared.

UPDATE 2

Yay ... Rec list, I was hoping that by the time the Brown campaign got off work they would see something on DKos... It's foot soldiers like you that are going to save this country, one city at a time! Great Job Guys!!!! =)

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
