Democratic turnout, the story of last night
One of the greatest victories that gets lost in the emotion of last nights results is that the Democratic turnout crushed the Republican turnout. Not only did Democratic voters out number Republican voters but Steve Harrison's vote total surpassed that of the Republican victor, Bob from Manhattan. Steve received 3,885 votes to Bob's 3,617. 61% of all the voters yesterday voted for a Democratic candidate.
Democratic votes - 15,677 (61%)
Republican votes - 6,156 (39%)
Clearly our base is excited and ready to elect a Democratic Representative this November.
