Virginia city that voted twice for Obama just tossed all Dems out

While the mainstream media and their pollsters continue to sell us the lie that somehow, mumblin’, bumblin’ Joe Biden is double-digits ahead of President Donald Trump ahead of the November election, anecdotal evidence continues to suggest that Democrats may be in for a huge red wave rout.
Readers likely know that Democrats managed to turn Virginia blue in the 2018 elections, barely winning enough seats in the legislature to win back control for the first time in many years.
They wasted no time in passing their Leftist extremist agenda, forgiving Gov. Ralph “Blackface” Northam for his past racism now that their party controlled all levers of power in the Old Dominion state.
Well, it looks like maybe voters in Virginia are already tiring of Democratic rule, especially after Northam locked down the state and closed ‘non-essential’ businesses — ostensibly to ‘bend the curve’ of coronavirus — until June 10.
On Tuesday during a special election, three Democrat members of the Staunton, Va. city council were replaced by Republicans even though they got more vote than they received four years ago.
The Daily Caller reports that the town voted for Obama twice:
Republican candidates Mark Robertson, Amy Darby, and Steve Claffey all joined incumbent Andrea Oakes in a four-seat GOP sweep, WHSV reported. The three incoming council members replaced Democratic incumbents Erik Curren, Ophie Kier, and James Harrington all almost doubled their vote totals from 2016, yet still lost.
Local outlet Augusta Free Press reporter Chris Graham called the results “stunning almost beyond words.”
“Democrats got their voters out better than they have in a May cycle in years,” Graham wrote. “Republicans got turnout more akin to, not quite a presidential year, but approaching gubernatorial.”
He cited the Democrats’ gun control and Northam’s tyrannical COVID-19 lockdown as the likely catalysts leading to GOP victories.
In all, voter turnout was 4,320, the Augusta Free Press reported, with a total of 17,279 votes cast.
“For comparison to previous cycles, the 2018 local election had 7,068 votes cast for three seats, which would work out to 2,356 individual voters turning out,” wrote Graham. “Back in 2016, the most recent, until Tuesday, four-seat election, the total cast was 6,325, or 1,581 individual voters.”
Neighboring Wayesboro also put a pair of conservatives, Lana Williams and Bruce Allen, on the city council to “give conservatives a working majority,” Graham reported.
“Bottom line is that the strategies worked, flipping both from D to R, but the change in Staunton is stunning almost beyond words,” Graham opined. “A city that voted for Barack Obama, twice, voted for Hillary Clinton, voted for Terry McAuliffe and Ralph Northam, even gave a solid majority to Jennifer Lewis in her 2018 congressional run against Ben Cline, is now controlled by Republicans.”
Meanwhile, these GOP victories come after a special election on Tuesday as well, in California, where a U.S. House seat vacated by disgraced Rep. Katie Hill was flipped from “D” to “R.”
