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:
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
FOR ATTORNEY GENERAL
FOR SECRETARY OF STATE
So… the next time someone tries to tell you Solon is a Republican city, tell them the facts.
