And Hamilton County is blue.
I hope to post some actual analysis later today, once I've recovered from a long day yesterday and had enough time to process what happened yesterday.
But one thing seems undeniable: Hamilton County has shifted, whether demographically, politically, or both. The Democratic candidate for President carried the county with just over 52% of the vote.
Steve Driehaus defeated Congressman Chabot.
And perhaps most surprising (and the biggest departure from recent tradition), Democratic-endorsed judges won two of three contested elections in the Court of Common Pleas.
Hamilton County saw relatively low voter turnout: less than 67%, according to the preliminary numbers from the BOE. Of course, this does not include provisional ballots. But this is lower than early state-wide estimates, and lower than the 2004 election.
There's much thinking to do about yesterday's election.
