Interesting piece in the Seattle P-I about Democrat Brian Weinstein’s victory in traditionally Republican Mercer Island. [Teachers key to Democrat Weinstein’s ousting Mercer Island state senator]
Voters “were very frustrated with Jim Horn,” Weinstein said. “People on the Eastside to a large extent move here because they want their kids to go to good schools. It wasn’t hard to convince them.”
This is how you win elections, and it fits very nicely into some thinking I’ve been doing on how Democrats can start taking back the country. We’re not wrong on the issues, we’re running the wrong candidates and the wrong kind of campaigns.
I’ve got a bit more thinking to do, but you can be sure I’ll share it with you and ask for your input once I get all the pieces in place.
