Election 2011 Results

Let’s see. Republican Damon Welch defeated incumbent Tim Armstrong for Mayor of Madison. I didn’t expect that but I am glad. Actually, yesterday was a good day for the Republicans in Madison. In the City Council two Republican  incumbents won reelection easily while two Democrats were re-elected by a thin margin. In all the City Council now has four Republicans and three Democrats. The Democrat Bill Kalb defeated Republican Jeff Daghir. We can’t win them all. I found it slightly odd that we had 237 voting a straight Democratic ticket while 325 voted straight Republican. Although Indiana is a “red” state, Jefferson County along with much of the southernmost part of Indiana along the Ohio River is a “blue” enclave, probably because of influence from Kentucky. Although Kentucky has been getting redder and redder.

Speaking of Kentucky, I see that Democrat Steve Beshear was re-elected governor in a landslide over David Williams. I expected that since Williams was kind of an idiot.

I got the results for the local races from our local newspaper the Madison Courier. They haven’t put the results on their website yet.

Well,  now that that’s over, on to 2012!
