it's the suburbs of Chicago. She could eat a live puppy on TV and the Democrats would find enough dead Republicans to switch parties and vote her in.

I would imagine this would be a pretty Republican area.....have things/are things changed that much since I left there?

Well it may have changed since I left but I always thought the that the entire Greater Chicago area was Democratic.

Chicago (the city itself), overwhelmingly Democrat.
The rest of Cook County, mostly Democrat, with some towns that would go Republican.
Some of the "collar" counties, DuPage County in particular, tended to skew Republican.

Texas House member wins re-election from a jail cell

AUSTIN (KXAN) — A re-election celebration is underway in Pod 2 of the Montgomery County Jail after inmate number 232573 claimed victory in Texas House District 27. That inmate is known as Rep. Ron Reynolds, D-Missouri City, to the people on the outside.

Reynolds was unopposed in the race for District 27 and the latest vote totals show Reynolds garnered 47,305 votes in Tuesday's election.

Reynolds was booked into the county jail on Sept. 7. He's serving a year-long sentence after a 2015 conviction on five misdemeanor counts of using a middleman to chase ambulances in order to solicit clients for Reynolds’ law firm.

After the 2015 conviction, a county judge handed down the jail sentence to the sitting lawmaker, but Reynolds spent the last three years appealing the conviction. Reynolds’ law license was suspended on May 2, 2016.

Since the convictions were misdemeanors, Reynolds did not have to resign from office. Unless Reynolds' sentence is reduced, he will likely be sitting in a jail cell when the legislature reconvenes in January 2019. Reynolds could miss the entire first year of the 86th legislative session if he's not freed before Sept. 7, 2019.
It is sad that he was still in officer after his convictions.
It is even sadder that he won re-election.
What is the saddest of all is that no one even bothered to run against him. :(

... With Democrats set to reclaim control of the House in January and President Trump already infuriating them with the forced resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, speculation is rampant over whether they will use that power to pursue impeachment against the president -- or even Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
I vote for de muc rats to impeach trumpf ... he will not be convicted in the senate, so it will be a big waste of time. So will anything else they do, so we might as well have them wasting time on something safe ... :D

City-dwelling Lefties keep moving further out into the conservative 'burbs around major cities.

Like a plague of big gov't pushing locusts. Chewing into the voter demographics.


Kinda like the California flight. After fucking up their local areas with gov't bloat and imperiousness, they flee the resulting inflation and dilapidation of middle class living yet still often vote for more of those causes in their newly adopted locale.

There are probably a good number of "moderate" Democratic office holders who are almost equally as aghast that a bubble brain like her is in office.
