All Mail Voting Works – for Republicans
Fox & Hounds
For all the Republican howling of late about mail balloting, we have now had our first two all mail ballot elections in California, and guess what, Republicans won both: a State Senate seat in Riverside County and a congressional district in Los Angeles and Ventura Counties that Democrats had won in 2018.
Republicans from President Trump and strategist Karl Rove on down were certain Democrats would somehow steal the congressional election. But in a district carried by seven points by Hillary Clinton in 2016, and nine points by the Democrats in 2018, Republican Mike Garcia won by 10 points on Tuesday.
The dog didn’t bark, the bee didn’t sting, the fat lady didn’t sing. So what happened?
