Seven Results From This Week’s Local Elections That Point to a Red Tsunami in November

Seven Results From This Week’s Local Elections That Point to a Red Tsunami in November

Is Super Tuesday now in April? In a presidential year, nearly a third of delegates are typically allocated on Super Tuesday, often pointing to a strong showing of support for each party’s eventual nominee. Although this isn’t a presidential year, election results that favored Republicans across America on Tuesday may be a sign of what is to come this November.

If you look at electoral results across America, it was quite literally a super day for conservative candidates in general elections for local seats, as well as a handful of primaries. Notably, most of these results came from the suburbs, where Republicans lost ground in the Trump era. These developments point to a potential landslide for Republicans in November.

Take a look at some of the results below!

1.) The City of Kenosha has been a staple in the national news since the BLM riots of 2020, due to the shooting of Jacob Blake and heavy media attention on the Kyle Rittenhouse trial. After a jury acquitted Rittenhouse last year, voters in the county took another step in support of law and order on Tuesday, electing a Republican as county executive — for the first time ever. Samantha Kerkman, a Republican state representative, beat out Democrat Rebecca Matoska-Mentink with 51.32% of the vote.

2.) The trend of GOP wins continued across the Badger State, including in Waukesha where three conservative candidates won seats on the city’s school board.

3.) Also notably, three conservative mothers beat out incumbents to win seats on the Menomonee Falls School Board.

Results on both sides of the Show-Me State were promising for the Republican Party.

4.) In the Kansas City suburbs, anti-CRT candidates prevailed in Lee Summit, the state’s sixth-largest city. Notably, Lee Summit is in Jackson County, which has remained solidly Democratic even as Missouri has trended rightward in recent years.

5.) On the other side of the state in the Saint Louis suburbs, pro-law enforcement candidate Merrell Hansen won a seat on the Chesterfield City Council.

6.) In California’s 22nd Congressional District, the race to replace Congressman Devin Nunes was on as soon as Nunes announced he’d be leaving Congress to run former President Trump’s new social media platform Truth Social.

Although redistricting made Nunes’ old seat more competitive, Republicans have plenty to be happy about with their Tuesday night showing.

In a state where the top two vote-getters in the primary go on to the general election, regardless of party, Republicans are often shut out. Fortunately, the top vote-getter in this race was Republican Connie Conway. Conway, a former California assemblywoman, won the all-party primary with 35.2%. She now heads to a June runoff to fill the seat for the remainder of the term.

7.) In Georgia — another state with jungle primaries — Republicans look poised to keep the 45th State House District. All they have to do is turn out as they did on Tuesday for the special election runoff on May 3rd. The district covers parts of Cobb and Fulton counties next to Atlanta.

So, what do you think? Which state’s results give you the most confidence heading into the midterms? And is there one candidate, in particular, that you’re really excited about? As always, tell us below — we look forward to hearing from you!
