I’m still processing everything. I want to see more detail, so I can analyze what happened.
What’s crazy to me is that nearly 25,000 more Democrats voted in the Congressional primaries than Republicans in Shelby County. Joe Ford lost by nearly 29,000 votes, which is not all that surprising to me, except for the number. Randy Wade lost by 6600. Regina Newman lost by 4500 votes. 25,000 more Democrats voting than Republicans in Shelby County, and we couldn’t pull out a victory for these two. Kind of unbelievable.
Like I said, I’m still processing. I probably won’t have anything more to say about the election until next week. I need time to talk to people and get some more direct perspective from all parts of town. That’s gonna take a while.
So here’s some links to folks that already have an opinion on the election, and some news articles. I’ve got a post-election hangover…not from the booze, but from the results.
This cycle may be over, but another is just beginning. The TNDP wants you to get your door knockin’ hand ready.
Ok, I’m off to work on a research paper.
