Monday Politics Chat: It's True. Hamilton County Has Gone Blue
WVXU politics reporter Howard Wilkinson spoke with city hall reporter Jay Hanselman this morning about the results of of last Tuesday's election in Hamilton County. One thing was obvious: Hamilton is now a blue county. Every Democratic statewide candidate - for governor, secretary of state, attorney general, treasuer and auditor - lost statewide, but every one of them won Hamilton County by a sizeable margin. Democrats defeated several incumbent Republican judges. And the upset election of Stephanie Summerow Dumas over incumbent Republican Chris Monzel will mean that all three county commissioners will be Demcorats. That hasn't happned in any living person's memory.
