How sweet it is, folks! Democrats now control the city council in Columbus, Indiana for the first time in decades.
For the first time in nearly 40 years, Democrats have taken control of Columbus, Indiana—the hometown of Vice President Mike Pence.
On Tuesday, Columbus voters saw four Democrats elected to City Council seats, with only three Republican incumbents claiming re-election victory.
In one district, Democrat Jerone Wood beat out Republican incumbent Dascal Bunch by just one vote, according to local newspaper, The Republic.
In another, incumbent Democrat Elaine Wagner beat her GOP opponent, Jim Hartsook by several hundred.
Just one vote! What great news for Democrats in this city of roughly 45,000 people.
No word yet about the shocking results from Vice President Pence or his older brother Greg, who represents Indiana’s 6th congressional district.
If we should receive a response—it will most likely mirror this delusional tweet from GOP Chair Ronna McDaniel, “explaining” Matt Bevin’s loss last night in Kentucky.
One thing is certain folks, as the tweet above demonstrates: The GOP isn’t going to learn from these losses. They will continue to enable Donald Trump’s behavior, right up until Election Day 2020 ... and I say, let’s hope they do. It will only serve as a stark reminder to voters that Trump and his Republican enablers must be defeated.
That can only help Team Blue duplicate unlikely results, like the Tuesday’s victory in Columbus, Indiana.
