Small local elections in BubbaLand....surprise!

I hope these small local elections show there is a continuing blue wave. These elections were in south Louisiana, very much a red area.

There was a mayoral election in a neighboring small city: The Democrat beat the incumbent Republican. 58% to 42%.
There were several councilman elections: Of the several, two Democrats ran. BOTH won.

Turnout was good.

In short, whenever a Democrat ran, s/he won.

This is good news. I hope this is a sign of a continuing blue wave. If the blue wave is in the deep south in small elections, it's a very good sign.

6. Yes, I know. Not only that...neighboring Lake Charles had a March for Life today.

About 100 people. Not many, I know. But for the area, that's saying a lot.

I do hope that these small elections show that there is a continuing blue wave sweeping the country.

5. Heres the story

SULPHUR, LA (KPLC) - Mike Danahay was declared the winner of the Sulphur mayoral race Saturday night, defeating incumbent Chris Duncan, who has served two terms as mayor.

Danahay, who is a Sulphur native, began his public service career in 2000 after being elected to Calcasieu Parish Police Jury, where he served two terms. After his tenure as police juror, Danahay was elected as State Representative in 2008, where he also served two terms.

Danahay (DEM) defeated Duncan (REP) by 653 votes. Danahay had 58 percent (or 2,310 votes) while Duncan had 42 percent (or 1,657 votes).

Results are complete, but unofficial, from the Louisiana Secretary of State’s office. Candidates must receive at least one more vote than 50 percent of the total votes cast. If no candidate receives a majority, the top two candidates advance to a runoff in the April 28 general election.
