Reliably blue Virginia City expunge Dems amid record turn out

Three Democratic members of the Staunton, Virginia, city council were ousted by Republicans on Tuesday despite receiving more votes than they did four years ago.

...

Local outlet Augusta Free Press reporter Chris Graham called the results "stunning almost beyond words."

"Democrats got their voters out better than they have in a May cycle in years," Graham wrote. "Republicans got turnout more akin to, not quite a presidential year, but approaching gubernatorial."

Graham cited gun control legislation in the state as well as COVID-19 lockdowns as key turnout drivers for Republicans in the city.

...

Nearby Wayesboro also put two conservatives, Lana Williams and Bruce Allen, on their city council to "give conservatives a working majority," Graham reported.

Yeah, the reason Republicans have been unable to win elections in Virginia in recent years is their kind of voters, like in Southwest Virginia, are low turnout. The Democratic base in Virginia are affluent voters who have extremely high turnout. It's sort of the opposite of what it's like in Texas.
