Just watched Michael Barone on FoxNews and he alerts us to really big news in New York’s Westchester County. Republican Rob Astorino ousted incumbent Andy Spano with 57.65 of the vote. Obama carried the county last fall with 63.39% of the vote. Astorino ran more than twenty points ahead of John McCain.
Seems Republicans are once again relevant in socially liberal suburbs. They’re going to need to sound a lot like New Jersey’s Govenor-elect who also ran ahead of John McCain in those once-Republican suburbs.
