I just read the Brenda Davis actually got 43% of democrat votes. I didn't think there were that many stupid people in Washington Co. Guess I was wrong.

I must agree with you on that one

7351 dumb dumbs to be exact


The 7351 were Republican votes, not Democratic as the original poster claimed.


Did she cross file? Because i thought she was only on the Republican ballot. Thank goodness she might be gone from county politics.


The reality is she did NOT cross file, Bobby Delloroso got 99.04 of the Democratic vote and there were 139 write-ins, which my have been for her.
