From Red Righter —
Wow. I thought I lived in Texas when I saw our county’s election results on the front page of the Cecil Whig. Of the two columns of candidates—left side for Dems and right side for GOP—there were only three lonely checkmarks for the left-wingers and 18 victories—within Cecil County—for the Republicans. It was a good night to wear red.
Plus, if the “we don’t endorse” Cecil County Patriots would have come out and publicly supported Ted Patterson, he might have knocked off Dave Rudolph, longtime Democrat in the House of Delegates, District 34B. With that contest’s victory won by only 321 votes, the local, flag-waving, conservative group missed a major opportunity to exercise its power in this year’s election. Maybe it leaders will change its do-nothing policy in 2012—or maybe there will be a change in its leadership. We’ll all have to wait and see.
