For John, BLUF: I think it isn't so much an anti-Democratic Party mood as an anti-Government mood. Nothing to see here; just move along.
An Opinion Piece by Writer Salena Zito, The Washington Examiner, 19 November 2017.
Here is the lede plus one:
The outcome for the race for county commissioner in this northwestern Pennsylvania corner didn’t get much national scrutiny or post-election analysis because the incumbent Democrat, Kathy Dahlkemper, ultimately won.It did not all go the Democrat way earlier in the Month.
But it should have. Why? Because it is worthy of at least diving into what is happening to this once reliable stronghold for Democratic candidates; it may not be red, but it sure is a vibrant shade of purple.
Dahlkemper's narrow victory – she won by 300 votes – is something both parties should dive into to discover where the voter’s sentiments are heading.
