Democratic Party resurgence in Williamson county

Posted in Elections, Good Stuff, Precinct 2, Precinct 4, Presidential Election, Williamson County at 12:11 pm by dembones

There were 21,437 fewer votes for the Republican presidential candidate in 2008 than in 2004. Support for the Democratic presidential candidate grew by 6,485 votes. The margin of victory at the top of the ticket in Williamson county shrunk by 70 percent in four years.

Republicans who look at these results and see good news are continuing the same sort of denial of reality that led to George W. Bush’s legacy of failure. Democrats are now on trajectory to winning many offices, countywide and lower on the ballot, in 2010.

Although we missed taking a county commission seat by 285 votes, the writing on the wall is clear. Cynthia Long and Ron Morrison, the Democrats are coming after you in two years. You have been put on notice.
