Democratic Socialists Had a Pretty Good Election Night

Nov 23, 2010

Democratic Socialists, the current bogeyman of the right, are celebrating some big Election Day wins.

Of the baker’s dozen candidates endorsed by the Democratic Socialists of America’s national committee, at least three won their seats, in cities like Philadelphia and Charlottesville, with a fourth on the cusp of eking out a victory in San Francisco. The victories — several of which were in purple states with a record of supporting more-moderate candidates — are both symbolic and historic for a surging group that has sometimes struggled to fully execute its organizing power.
Can't wait to see how things shake out next year.

So less than 1 in 3 was a good night? Also while Pennsylvania and Virginia are more moderate as states, Philadelphia and Charlottesville aren't at all moderate. Charlottesville is the second most dem voting city in Virginia. Philadelphia hasn't had a republican mayor since 1952.

Well, when you have a losing ideology, 1 outta 4 ain’t bad.

“We might even eke out a win in San Fran!” LOL so much fail. If you can’t readily sell your crazy shit in San Fran you have no chance on the national stage.
