Senate District One was decided on Tuesday and conservative Republican Ted Gaines whipped democrat Ken Cooley. With all 514 precincts reporting as of 11 p.m. Tuesday, unofficial results show Gaines received 81,945 votes (63.2 percent) and Cooley received 47,743 votes (36.8 percent). Another conservative wins big in our county.
Although the leftwingnut bloggers in our area and some delusional liberals from the Truckee area try to put lipstick on the democrat pig, claiming there is some sort of color change to purple here, the results are undeniable. Nevada County is a red county on both sides of the Sierras.
Gaines won in the Eastern County 55 to 45. The turnout was 22% or thereabouts (look here for the county results) and it was mail ballot I believe. Mail ballot is so easy to do and yet 22% chose to vote. That is a travesty but the results are just fine. So, once again republicans win and the left cry's a river and performs funny dances.
Good for you Ted Gaines, now we have to elect another conservative to the Assembly seat and we will.
