Solon: Blue and getting bluer

Look how blue Solon is now!

On June 28th, this site predicted that Ted Strickland would carry Solon with at least 60% of the vote. At that time, several people pulled us aside to tell us, politely, that we were insane.

Turns out, we were playing the low expectations game.

According to the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections, the Governor’s race in Solon went something like this:

Strickland 70.62%
Blackwell 28.20%


That’s an amazing 6,340 votes for Ted Strickland.

The colors of our beloved Solon Comets are blue and white (sure, the uniforms are blue and gold, but the alma mater says blue and white). Blue is the political color of the city as well, based on these election results in Solon…

FOR U.S. SENATE
Brown 63.92%
DeWine 36.08%

FOR ATTORNEY GENERAL
Dann 55.92%
Montgomery 44.08%

FOR AUDITOR
Sykes 50.7%
Taylor 49.3%

FOR SECRETARY OF STATE
Brunner 60.4%
Hartman 36.7%

FOR TREASURER
Cordray 61.82%
O’Brien 38.18%


So… the next time someone tries to tell you Solon is a Republican city, tell them the facts.

Well, Mandel fooled many by avoiding the fact that he was a Republican. I think he's much more conservative than we think, similar to Trakas. I bet he voted for Blackwell. Too bad he wouldn't even answer that question directly.
